Seneca valve stems

We have a Seneca on order. I can't remember, on the Freightliner M2 chassis with aluminum wheels are both the inner and outer tire valve stems easily accessible on the rear axle?

We love our current MH which is on a Mercedes Sprinter, but the rear stems are extremely difficult to access. With tire inflation being such an important safety issue, I think it's unconscionable that MH builders don't set them up to be easily accessible from the factory...

The rear stems are much easier to reach than on our former E-450-based motorhome. The outside wheels have the stems angled inward, though, so a dual-head truck air chuck is needed. The inside stems are easily accessible with the same long air chuck.

We have a TPMS system installed, and removing / reinstalling the sensors on the inner dually's is the toughest part. It is possible to reach between the tires and remove them.

Thanks anab8or. I purchased a TPMS for the new Seneca and was hoping both rear stems were facing out. It's good to hear that a dual head air chuck will work. On our current Sprinter the outer wheel stems face in and are so short you can't get a chuck on them. They are a real pain...
