Help filling ties

I have an ACE 29.3. If I go to a gas station and attempt to fill my tires, I can't even get the pump nozzle to connect to the front tires. There's not enough space between the valve and the cut out in the hub. I'm currently resigned to using an air compressor that I carry with me everywhere. Thanks for any help!

Looks as if you will need to continue to use your own air compressor or have valve extenders installed.

Can you use a TPMS on top of valve extenders?

I have 45 degree valve extenders and TPMS on those on my ACE. No problems.

Yes you can. The ends of the extenders are just like the ends of the valve you have now. It's easy enough for a truck repair shop to install them and not that expensive. Most motorcoachs with duel wheels in the rear have them because it's too hard to get air into the inside tires without extenders.

i use the Accu-gage-Check A Spare, Valve Extender from Amazon. Cost around $10. Makes it a lot easier for the front tires and will give you extra reach for the pumps at the gas stations. I tried to send a link, but it wouldn't let me.
