Tire inflation

2016 class C 31 DS

I have tried several methods to check and put air in my dual rear tires. nothing that I have found thus far will allow me to do this with out removing the cheap tin hubcap and the caps are starting to show some wear from multiple on and offs. I going on a trip and have decided to leave the caps off (I might put some paint of the rims where the cover's teeth dig in).
What are other people doing and if you found a product that works? I have exhausted CW's limited selection.

Have you tried Valve extenders? I work in a shop that services Prevost Coach buses and we use them to air up the tires.

Since I install a tire pressure monitoring system I only have to adj air pressure occasionally . It give me a lot of peace of mind . Surprisingly the temperature of the tire changes pressure quite a bit

Since I installed the Tire Minder TPMS I check my pressure daily on the monitor. Rarely have to pull the wheel covers. A TPMS also gives the added comfort of tire temperature and impending possible disaster.

I had the same problem until I took it down to Discount tire and had them install valve extenders on both of the rear tire sets.
They didn't even charge me. I just had to give them the extenders, which I picked up at Camping World.

Tim, what did the extenders look like, I have tried solid and braided types and nothing has allowed me to use while the hubcaps are in place. A couple others say they use the pressure sensors, I might go there after I find a way to service the tires easier.
thanks
