New Guy

I hope Im posting this in the right place. My wife and just retired and bought a 2018 Grayhawk 31fs and this is our first rv experience. Hoping to take grandchildren on some great trips. Since I am a newbie Im looking to learning much from the forum. I do have a question. How do you check the tire pressure on the inside rear tires? It appears the valve stem is hidden between the tires. Would appreciate any advice.

this is the spot for a question on your new rig. We have a section for introducing yourself.

Some do both with the first post but many members don't read the class C if they don't have one so you may want to make one there also. There has been much discussion of the problem you posed.

Welcome to JOF. Is Cumminh a place?

Welcome Woundtight! Your in for a lot of fun and great memories.

As far as the inside duals...yep they are not easy but there is a solution. Go to a truck tire store or call one local and tell them your problem. They will offer options. My suggestion is to go with the solid metal longer valve stems. They will have to dismount the tires to install these but you will never have another issue.

My Greyhawk actually came with these but I got the alcoa aluminum wheels option. So I have first hand experience with them. Some will say the flex braided extenders are fine and they are ok but many have been know to loosen and leak down causing a flat. The solid longer stems are the way to go.

Not sure if Discount Tire could install these. You could order them online and have them install. I would call them first. But I bet they would as they sell and install our Greyhawk tire sizes.

This is just an example. Ask the tire guys before you order. Mine are actually chrome.

It is possible to get your hand in thru the outside rim hole depending on the side of you hands, but it is still a pain. Valve stem extenders are a great countermeasure. I installed a TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) on our 2016 31FK and love it. Gives me that added piece of mind while traveling down the road. And checking tire pressure before every trip is as simple as turning on the unit. Below is the link to the one I use (there are some good threads on the forum about different TPMS). Enjoy your new home on wheels!!

Thanks guys for your response. Valve extenders sound like the way to go. My typing skills are rather poor, we live in Cumming, GA which is a little north of Atlanta.
