Nothing has been determined.
I have over 40,000 miles on my 2012 Georgetown and have flex lines in the back. I also have been using my TPMS since I got my rig new and I have not had any failures what so ever. My tires and valve stems don't lose pressure and I'm very happy.
Sorry to hear about your DOOM and GlOOM experience.
