You should be able to buy just the outer extenders if FR won't own up.
Mine are 19.5, I'm going to get a set of these:

Wheel Masters 8029180 180 Degree Valve Extender Package of 2 | eBay

The valve on the outer wheel is pointed inward and you can touch it through one of the cap's holes.

I think you may have to send them a picture to explain what you are missing. The Inner tire extenders. Correct me if I'm wrong here.
Good luck
Iggy, I do have the inners, just need the outers. I did send FR a photo of the outer valve that I took in between the tires that shows there is no extender.

I just went out and checked and found that the easiest way to find them is just by tapping on the "nuts". Most of them will sound hollow while two will sound solid. That those two off and the cap will pull right off.

Thanks Joel, I would have removed all of them. Good to know.

How do I get the MH weighed?

Most truck stops have a public scale, you will need to pay a fee but it is well worth it.

It's only around 9 dollars and good for the day. If you can find a scale that can do a four point weight that is best but hard to find. If you find one you can set your tire pressure more accurately. Most of the scales here in MI are Cat scales and only weigh the axel. That is better than nothing and will give you a starting point for tire pressure. The down side is having one side much heavier than the other and not having the tire pressure high enough.

I could only find four valves for six tires. Are the two on each side in the rear hooked up with a T? Another thing I noticed is that all of the valves are nice metal ones.
Just a question? Are you sure about the 97psi? My inside sticker says 82psi. I have 19.5 GY 670 tires. I weighed the coach and indeed, from the GY website, says my tires should be at 82psi for the weight that was measured on the scales.

I must have read it wrong, it's actually 92 psi. Here is a picture.

Another question: Am I supposed t have a spare tire...if so, can't find it.

Got the inner extenders secured and ordered a set of 180 hard line ones for the outer. Thanks for letting me know how the hub caps work. Mine had three fake lug nuts and they came off. I really like the design. They look real and if you ever damage one, just pop another one in. I also found that all of my wheels are balanced as they all good size weights in them. Probably why it rides so smooth.

Al - no spare tire, we couldn't change it anyway, so no need. Have a good roadside service and they will bring one.
