Replacing OEM Screw on metal tire valve and Ford OEM TPMS Sensor on 2021 Sunseeker, E4

Need to replace the screw on metal tire valve and Ford OEM TPMS sensor. Hubcap broke tire valve. Roadside service replaced tire valve, but not sensor. Unfortunately learned latter that sensor is detachable and I should have saved sensor.

Ford dealer using VIN is unable to locate sensor that will sync with on board factory system. Tried Discount Tire, also no.
Forest River tech claims that tire valves and TPMS sensors come mounted on chassis, directly from Ford.

Would greatly appreciate source and part numbers of tire valves and TPMS sensor that will sync with onboard Ford system.

Am currently using auxiliary TPMS system that covers Coach and towed Jeep. Lack of Factory sensor continually trips out information display.

TPMS

Check with an auto parts store. Auto Zone, NAPA, etc. I've been successful in finding auto parts there more so than at a dealer or other specialty shop.

Bob, tried them, NAPA came the closest, but no cigar. Called the Ford help line, left message . Will try again next week.

I will look tomorrow when i get to shop. I have an autel tpms programner that has a database of OE sensor numbers. I've noticed the GM trailer sensors in the unit but havent paid attention if it may have Ford. I will see in thr morning when I get back to work and see if we are lucky.

What Ford chassis is your motorhome built on? I don't know what an E4 is listed in your title.

Thanks.
Unfortunately this appears to be the same valve/TPMS unit that the local Ford dealer tried. It would not sync and it is not a metal screw on valve with detachable sensor.

I have about decided to take the rig back to Discount Tire or comparable, and have the break the other front tire open and take a picture of the sensor. Hopefully there is a Ford # that can be cross referenced.

Never a dull moment in owning an RV.

This fits your description. It is listed for F250-450 but not E450, which is a common occurrence with the E450 cab chassis after 2014.

At last. Without having seen the original Valve/TPMS sensor, the Valve alone is correct. All the more reason to break open the tire and get the Ford part number off of it.
When I had to replace a tire which was punctuated right on the sidewall, Discount Tire automatically replaced the tire valve, the said that the sensor is simply screwed on to the valve.
Thanks for the research. I use Summit frequently, but never considered looking for Tire valve and TPMS sensors at Summit.
