Haven't dropped down on my knees or crawled up under our "new to us" MH but wondering where and how easy it is to locate the inside tires (tag axle) valve stems? No humorous remarks please.

On mine, the tag axle has only 2 tires....left and right. The drive axle has 4. The valve stems have extenders that make them readily accessible for inflation.

My rear drive has a total of 8-tires. The outside four the Syems can easily be seen. But, I see no extenders for the the inside tires. One would think that the extender would protrude through the outside tire. Right??

For the inside dually, you need a long air chuck if there's no extender. Use a marker or something to mark on the wheel which hole the inner valve stem is so you don't have to search for it each time...

I use something like this:

well never mind the picture, apparently you can't attach images... just google dually air chuck.

Your Eclipse 42QD only has 6 wheels in the rear. Your tag is only 2 wheels. Look again.

No wonder you can’t find them. [emoticon]
