Winterized Class C Has a Flat Tire

By the title of this, sounds like no big deal and probably isn't ... but I'm a newbie that is use to fixing things himself. My rig has been sitting on leveling blocks since November winterized here in the midwest. I noticed yesterday, Jan 26 I had a rear outside tire that was flat. I put in about 30lbs of air and thought I heard a hissing sound so I stopped to see how long the tire would hold air. Within 15 that 30lbs of air was gone.

I have a spare. So I went to take the wheel covers off and realized that both extended air stems and what was holding them, were riveted twice to the chrome wheel cover.

Before I make a mistake I thought my first post would be a question. Do I need to take those rivets out before pulling the wheel cover off complete or are they build to stay with the wheel cover even if it is taken off?

I have a 2003 Coachmen Freedom 258DB.

Maybe I should just call roadside service and let them change it. I am located in the freezing state of Indiana.

Thanks for your help/suggestions in advance.

Check the extended air stems. Take the cap off, below that should be a single,
tiny nut threaded onto the stem. Unscrew that nut and the extended stem should
come out of the bracket.

Remove air stems and refill tire, maybe air stems causing leak.
