Unhappy Tire valve problems

The tire valves on my 2005 25' Safari are oriented radially, towards the wheel hub. Consequently, there is insufficient room for most of tire inflator couplers found on 12-volt portable units. The space between the valve end and the aluminum wheel structure is too small. Is this a new "feature" of my wheels or have people dealt with it in other ways?

Ain't that annoying? We drove our new Safari California to Colorado and back, and were never able to add air, and the air was low (23 lbs in one tire).

The answer: Camping World or perhaps Pep Boys sell right-angle valve extenders. Add these and the valves will point to where you can reach them.

How about.....

can you have new stems mounted sticking straight out? I'm not sure why AS would mount them that way.

Thanks Cammur. I checked Camping World and found some 45 extenders that should do the job. Ordered two pair.

Cheers!
