I use one of these to check dually tire air pressure, it has a built-in flashlight.
The inner valve stem should be 180 from the outer tire valve stem.

Agree on how great the borg stems mine thru Always Shiny Wheels and RV (will attempt to add a link below).

'Always Shiny' were recommended to me and I'm glad they were. I believe they're a small perhaps family-owned business, RV'rs, etc. which I'm happy to support. The lady that I talked to was super-knowledgeable, helpful, quick and efficient.

I added the Borg stems when I replaced my tires. I then added a TPMS and so glad I did.

Anybody have any suggestions anyone?

You can get extensions to make it easier. You can also get long necked pressure gauges and inflators. Any truck stop will have them.

That is exactly how JOSAM in Orlando installed my Toyos last year.

180 degrees separated - across from each other.

Use a shop that deals with RVs.

Look into a "Crossfire" system. Has a gauge that reads pressure in both tires that you can see on a "walk-around. Stem to add aie that fills both tires. Put one on my dual's and haven't looked back.
