I have done a lot of searching for answers to my questions without much success. If this discussion already exists, please link me to it. I don't want to take up space, but I do want to make sure I am able to successfully check my tires before each trip.
We have a 2015 Georgetown 270 (class A) with dual rear tires (19.5").
1. There is an extension in place for the inner tires. The valve stem for the outer tires is within reach beneath the chrome-clad cover and is pointing toward the inner tire. I am not able to check the air pressure because of the angle. Do I need to get those 90-degree extensions? Something else?
2. Assuming I need a 90-degree extension for the outer tires, is that something I leave on all the time or just when I am checking pressure/adding air? I've read in some places they can cause leaks.
3. (I'm embarrassed to ask this one.) The extension from the inner tires has what appears to be a metal cap on it. I was not able to finger twist it off and did not have tools with me at the time. I'm assuming it will come off with a little extra help from a wrench??? Or do those extensions operate some other way?
Admittedly, I'm a safety freak. And I certainly want to be able to check my own tires before every trip. This is my first experience with dual tires, so I'm feeling a little uncomfortable with the whole process.
Your help, links, images, etc... are all appreciated.
