Stabilizer bracket for flexible valve extension on inner rear tire
I wanted to share a cheap and easy solution that I found for stabilizing the flexible valve stem extensions that Forest River put on the inner rear tire of my 2014 328 TS (19.5 inch wheels). It was always a little challenging to check/add air on the inner tire with the flexible extension moving around. I recently installed the TST 507 TPMS system with the flow through sensors and decided I didnít want the sensor flopping around at the end of the flexible extension so I looked for and found a bracket (shown in the picture) that worked. It took a little bending to adjust the angles to position the bracket right but it fit very well. The bracket mounts under one of the lug nuts for the Kaper II wheel covers and the jamnut on the valve extension secures it at the valve cap (or in my case TST sensor) end. It is very sturdy now. The bracket is a Phoenix USA Item number VBK-L and it was only about $6 directly from Phoenix USA. I also ordered a couple of extra JamNuts (PVE990NUT) for less than a buck a piece in case I needed them. Shipping was less than $3 via USPS.
