Recommended Valve Stem Stabilizers for a 16 Inch Wheel

Question:

I plan to purchase a new TPMS but first what to find out if valve stem stabilizers are available for my RV. I have a 2018 2017 Chassis Winnebago Navion. As you can see from the attached pictures the openings on the decorative covers are approximately 1 1/4 inches with very sharp edges. The inner factory wheel openings are approximately 1 1/2 inches. There are 18 openings around the rim on both the decorative and vehicle rims. The factory stems are rubber and I utilize a 8 inch extension to check tire pressure on the inner wheels when required but dont leave it attached during travel. The decorative wheel cover is easily removable. The outer stem is readily available so I believe I can simply screw on the TPMS cap and that should not be a issue. The tires are 16 inch factory supplied. If the stabilizers are available what is your recommendation on a system that will monitor the six vehicle tires as well as the often overlooked spare under the vehicle. I have 12 volts power already run for any required repeater unit throughout the chassis.

We do carry the Wheel Masters Support Brackets for Rubber Valve Stems # WM8029VS which are designed to be used on 16 inch wheels. From the measurements and descriptions you have for your RV, I do suggest going with these.

The TST TPMS for RVs # TST-507-FT-6-C is also highly recommended. This includes a booster, if needed, has flow through sensors, and can handle up to 196 psi. I do have to say that this will only cover 6 of your 7 wheels though. We do have replacement/add-on sensors ( # TST-507-FT-S2 ), but they do only come in packs of 2.
