Checking MH tire pressures with/without removing wheel covers?

Is it just me or is it just a pain to check the tire pressures on my 2002 Georgetown 306S. I tried to get to the valve stem without removing the hub caps or whatever you call them and it was very difficult. After removing them it was much better, but for some reason on the dual wheels the outer tire has the stem pointing inward toward the axle. Maybe it was done by accident or by design, but it makes it difficult to get to without removing the chrome wheel cover. The inner tire of the duals is able to read without removing the cover, however I can't get to the outer rims without removing the cover. Do you all have the same trouble reading the pressures on your rigs? And is there a extension needed to make this possible and much easier? Help!

Mike

My fronts are difficult to get to. Rears have extensions making them very easy. That said, I installed a TPMS from TST. Aside from the safety factor I really like being able to check tire pressures during preflight from my easy chair.

x2 on tpms just put a set of 12 of my rig so far so good easy tire pressure checking and the 600.00 it cost would not cover 1 tire if it went down on say a inner dual and destroyed tire and whatever else.

Install a set of Dually Valve Stems for the rear dually wheels along with two correct facing stems for your front steer wheels and you will never complain again.

This shop is the GOTO place for all of them.
