TireTraker TPMS

Has anyone installed a TireTraker TT-500 tire pressure monitor system and how do you like it?
If so, did you get a booster? Their website says to install a booster ($49) for a metal skinned unit.

Thanks
Gerald

I am sure about Tire Tracker but if have any questions TST I am here for you. Typically the booster/repeater is not needed with Airstreams with TST.
Thanks,

I use the TireTraker system with our 25fb with the Tundra and now our Ram and no issues with the distance.

I like it very much. Once charged up the receiver unit battery lasts a long time so you can share the dash 12v adapter with other devices.

I would order and extra set of O rings for the sensors. I found a couple of mine wore out after the 1st season.

When the trailer is in storage I'll remove the sensors and store them at home with the receiver. When I come to install them for a trip I'll take one sensor, add the battery, then choose a tire, wait about 10 seconds then remove it and the receiver will alarm showing the tire location. If I'm not at the correct tire go to that tire and screw it in.

The pressure reading is pretty accurate but always use a trusted pressure gauge to compare.

I write on each sensor with a sharpie.

Thought about doing something like that. I'd have to get a white/yellow Sharpie since the sensors are black. I just never get around to doing it.
