Valve Stems

My wife and I recently purchased our new 2015 Jayco Precept 35UN and we are loving it! However we did find one area of concern and that was how to check the air pressur on the rear dual tires. The valve stems do not extend out from behind the outer rims. Has anyone encountered this and what did you do?

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new Precept.

I'm not sure of your vehicle (and can't tell from the online photos), but usually there is a series of openings in the outer rim. One of those openings should line up with the inner tire valve stem.

If that is the way yours are, you'll need an extended tire pressure gauge to reach the inner valve stem. An extended metal end for the air hose will also been needed to inflate the inner tires.

If none of that makes sense, a trip to your dealer or to Discount Tire should help. Of course someone with a unit like yours may be out here somewhere.

I really wished it was that simple. I would have thought that the inner stems would have lined up with the outer rim holes but they do not. Now I'm hearing a lot of negative comments concerning valve extenders. Any help would be appreciated.

If you go to a commercial truck tire/front end shop, they can dismount the tire and replace the valve stems with new longer ones bent just into the right place. It's a costly thing to do, but tire inflation is super important, especially the inner tires. It is worth the money to easily check pressure and not have to worry about a crummy add on extender leaking. I did it on my 31FS Greyhawk. Now checking pressures takes a few minutes.

We purchased a set of valve extenders at an RV show. They worked fine and we never had a problem.

Try this
Haltec_zmags

The FE300 is the ones that I used on the inside tires and also looped them on the outer tires to make it easier to air up

My 2015 Redhawk came with valve extenders from the factory. Check with dealer and see if they might have been left off.
