Drooker............welcome and CONGRATULATIONS. Great to have you on board with the Precept. We also had difficulty accessing the valve stems. Our Jayco dealer installed 135 degree extenders on the outside tires and braided steel extenders on the inside tires. Now I can check air pressure on the duals as easily as I can the fronts.
I have a super dealer............they didn't charge me for this...........they felt it was a safety item............I do too.
Keep in touch, this is a great forum, with great people and great info.

most jayco units have inner extenders installed from the factory, the outer tires are always a problem, usually pop the hub cap and put on angled extender on it works great, i actually carry 2 traded extenders that i can screw on, always had trouble with my ford truck because the valves were recessed in the mag wheels

Congrats on the 35un.
I recently bought the 35UP and had the dealer put extenders on mine as well.
Be sure to join the Precept Owners Group if you haven't already so we can figure it all out together...

My Greyhawk came with valve extenders for the inner wheels but it was the outer wheel stems I could not reach because the stems pointed inward toward the inner wheel. A tire repair shop showed me how to remove the wheel liner using a tire puller/mallet then use a dual foot tire gauge to check the pressure and use a dual foot air chuck to add air with my air compressor.

The wheel liners on the Precept are easily removable with 2 lugs being removed with a T-wrench that came with my unit. I wanted a quick and easy way to check the pressure. Thus, I had the extenders installed. I don't have to remove the liners now.....quick and easy.

I had the same concern with my Precept 31UL I had valve extenders added to the rear tire valves that I couldn't reach and now I have peace of mind. Agree that it doesn't make sense you can't reach, but this solved the problem for a reasonable price (extenders plus labor to install).

The valve extenders on the inner duals work for me except with the TPMS system which uses screw on sensors on the valve stems. The screw on sensors work on regular valve stems but do not work on the valve extenders. The TPMS tech support told me to adjust the valve core on the extenders with a tire valve tool. I am reluctant to do this fearing I will cause a slow air leak. Anyone else have this problem?

What cbss said. 135 degree Wheel Masters (I got burned with an off brand) or the double shoe inflator. For the inside duallies, I've been using the braided extensions for 10 years with no problem but your experience could vary.

I had the Borg brass extenders with the rubber spacer installed today. Hopefully this will prove to be a great investment!
