Need more efficient way to fill/adjust pressure on rear duals

The Greyhawk 31DS I recently bought is the first vehicle I have owned with dual rear wheels, and dealing with measuring and adjusting the tire pressure is a pain in the rear for me, especially the inward-facing valve stem on the outer tires. Does anyone have any suggestions for systems which bring both valve stems to the outside of the tires and make them easily accessible? I know someone has talked about a system that links both tires together for pressure equalization, but I don't know if that is what I really want. Mainly I want just to make the stems easier to reach and fill with a straight hose end.
Hoping for input from all you Jayco travelers

If I had anything better to do I would be doing it :)

Valve extensions for duals

I have used steel braid covered rubber extensions for 20 plus years on my duals- They are readily available at most rv dealers- There are various methods of attaching the extensions to the outside dual depending on whether your unit has steel or alloy wheels- I would not recommend pairing the wheels because a failure of one tire could result in a loss of pressure in the other dual- I do recommend the use of a Loctite solution on the threads of the valves- JMHO- DD

I have been through many solutions since we got our Greyhawk. Finally found one that works. Hard bolted in valve stems that are bent so that they are accessible. They are special order and must be installed by a shop.
