Another TPMS...

I posted this question in another thread about Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems last week and didn't raise a response. Thought I would try again since I plan on going by Camping World this week to take a look. Any feedback???

Just got new issues of Highways & RV View. In both I found a Tire Pressure Monitoring System from Hopkins sold under the NVision label - I have not seen this one in my prior research. Camping World is selling a 6 tire system for $359 (Club Price).

Anyone have any experience with this system?

See it at:

Ralph,

You need to check out the thread called Tire Pressure Monitors. There is a variety of opininons on these systems.
We are looking at putting the system on our A/S. I do know they have saved some units from serious damage from loss of air pressure.

Thanks...

Bob,

I think I have pretty much read them all. This one being a new kid on the block, I am hoping someone has tried it or knows something about its "heritage" or the company that makes/sells the unit. It appears to share some components and look and feel of others already on the market.

I like the more compact clam shell design and the fact that it is unobtrusive until something goes wrong. Then, you can flip it open and see what's up. The fewer distractions I have while driving the better...

I had pretty much settled on Pressure Pro and may still go that route if I can't find out more about this product. Check the tire sensors on both... do they look the same to you? If they are using the same components, then this one is not going to be as much of a "bleeding edge" purchasing proposition.

You just have to hope the company you buy from sticks around to back their product...

SmarTire TPMS

I just spoke with a friend who tows 30,000 a year.
He swears by SmarTire TPMS. It has a triple monitoring system...pressure, temp, and rotation. If a tire pressure decreases, so does its circumference.
This system is not cheap, but neither was the purchase of your A/S!
I guess it boils down to 'to what extent are you willing to protect your rig?'

The SmarTire system is installed inside the tire by a stainless band.
