Reaching rear valves

Any suggestions?
I had this problem big time. The compressor kit should have come with a flexible hose that screws onto the valve stem. I use this to fill my rear facing valves and it works wonderful. I like it so much I have looked for a spare hose, but have not been able to find one even on the Viair website.

Hey Chuck-
Yes it did come with a flexible hose. I can't get my fingers through the little opening to screw on the hose! Do you pop the hub caps off?

P.S I don't have man hands!! :-)

Amazon has valve stem extensions for about $12 for two that work good. You would have to look at the style you need. Might be the easy route

Well smaller hands might be an advantage, but I remove the wheel covers. I have a large screw driver I pry them off with, and then use a big rubber hammer to put them back on. It works for me! I have found the gauge that came with kit to be very accurate, once you get used to using it. You lose just a tiny bit of air when you are unscrewing the flexible cable chuck.

I was surprised how low some of my tires were. On my Redhawk, the front tires are set to a different pressure than the rear, by the way.
