Check Tire Pressure

Hello I'm new I have a 2018 Forest Sunseeker 2250. How do I check my tire pressure, is there a way to take off the rim? I've had it since August and the manual doesn't say. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's to all.

You shouldn't have to take off any type of hubcap or cover, the valve stem should be sticking out somewhere along the edge of the rim with a cap on it. Take off the cap put a pressure gauge on there add air if needed,

Suspect your wheel covers are Dicor “wheel simulators”, like mine are. Mine “look like” the bolt on, but actually just pry off like car wheel covers. The chrome “lug nuts” on mine are fake.
Mine came with “airless” extensions and a 135 degree piece on the outer duals to enable pressure check and fill.

I have a 2016 MBS 2400R that came with the OEM airless extensions on the inner duals. I found that I could check the air pressure with a little difficulty. For about a year the PSI held steady at 60 so I didnít worry about filling air through the extensions. Yesterday I needed to add air and no matter what I tried I could not get air to flow into the tires. What to do? Since the extensions just screw onto the regular tire valves and are not pressurized I realized I could just unscrew them. Then I used a longer truck style straight air chuck and was able to push that onto the regular tire valve through the wheels. Presto! Added air easily. I really donít know why I couldnít add air through the extensions but this turned out to be a good work around.

The inner shaft on the AirFlexx extension isn’t long enough to allow the pin on your air chuck to depress the tire valve. Several of us have solved by trimming the outer part of the AirFlexx. One forum member found the issue is caused by the AirFlexx not screwing on to the valve (or, in the case of the outer dual, the 135 degree piece on the valve) far enough. Solved by trimming the inner external part of the extension.

Several posts in this old thread on the AirFlexx extensions and the issue you are having (assuming your Motorhome uses the AirFlexx):

Well, thanks for the tip on the AirFlexx extensions. I just trimmed the extensions slightly and now they work as they should.
Thanks again!

Is there any way someone can take pictures of this procedure? I've looked in my paper work and see nothing. Especially about AirFlexx extension?
