Horrible Dual tire valve stem location

Talk about a horrible placement of inside dual valve stem on my 22.5s. Chrome wheels I can,t hardly get at them by crawling around under the coach. This is a really bad setup and I would like to improve on it. I bought some 6 in extensions to install and it looks like the only way is to remove the outside dual. Is this a hubcap on the bolts or what. If so how do I remove it? Any ideas or fixes please?
I can't even imagine how you could sell a unit like this with such a stupid setup.

Welcome to the world of trucking. Buy a gauge and air hose nozzle designed for duallys. See picture.

Seen how many trucks are converting to SuperSingles?

Granted it's not for most motorhomes, but it sure simplifies things (as long as you don't have a serious problem). I don't like duallies much at all.

You don't have to remove the wheels but you will have to remove 2 lugs. If you have wheel simulators remove 2 that have indentations and put your flex extensions under them.

Any recommendations for valve extenders for our Axis 24.1? My husband just bought some Victor brand chrome 1 1/4 extenders and they did not work well. Any suggestions?

I think most NAPA's have a selection. I have the ones with the braided hoses extending out to mounting brackets on wheel covers. If you get that type make sure you safe wire your wheel covers to the rim. An easy job, but will save some flats if a wheel cover comes loose.

If you are so inclined you can purchase the braided extenders with wheel holders from Amazon, delivered right to your door. Pacific Dualies 18000 7 Inch Braided Stainless Steel Valve Stem Extension System - Set of 2 $21.89.
