Smile valve extensions for mercedes sprinter rear tires

Just purchased a 2015 Pleasure Way Plateau FL. Tire stems in all four rear tires are just about impossible to get to. Anyone out there having the same problem? Anyone use valve extensions? Thanks

Our GWV Legend came with metal extenders. They are also anchored to the simulators with brackets, which I understand to be important.

I had the same access problem on my Ford based Class C and ordered the Tire Man extensions from Chuck and had them installed locally. Seemed like a good product to me.

Anyone here use those extensions on a Sprinter? Tire-Man: Home Page

My Sprinter 3500 came with light weight plastic extenders on the inner rear wheels which I leave on. I use a dual head chuck to check pressure and add air. I do have to remove and reinstall those shiny wheel covers, but that's a pretty simple task.

Do a good job putting those simulators back on. My neighbor with a View would loose one a year but he'd find two!

Wheel simulators (covers) can be problematic. I had one that would slowly rotate - maybe 1/4" per driving day.

I think I stopped the rotation with a zip tie or two. I say think because my memory of that RV is fading. That idea might help prevent them coming off.
