TPMS recommendations

Thank you for all the info!
What TPMS do you use? I need to buy that too. I've read many reviews but not sure what to believe.

I don't know what others use - I use the TST TPMS 507 internal model. There are pros and cons to everything. I like the internal sensors except for when I'll need to change the batteries which requires removing the tires and having them reinstalled. That's supposedly a 5 year interval. I've had mine going on 4 years.

But the beauty of any TPMS (internal or external from any company) is the real time temp and pressure monitoring. Little extra insight and peace of mind just in case something goes wrong.

There are several threads in the forums dedicated just to TPMS that can provide more insight. Here's the one I use - Mike is great to work with! And I get no compensation for this and am not related in any way. Just a happy customer!

I really like it. Easy to install and read, works great on my 30'.

PressurePro is the only one made in the USA if that matters and never any problems with sensor issues, reception etc. You do get what you pay for on this technology.

Dill TPMS

We installed a Dill TPMS system six years ago. Our TV did not have TPMS so I purchased the set that will manage 10 tires. Since our AS has two axles we only installed 8 sensors. It has worked very well. Like all TPMS units, the batteries have to be changed every 5 or so years.

I purchased the http://eezrvproduct.com/TIRE-PRESSUR...Z-RV-TPMS8.htm. A little tricky to set up but very reliable with no issues transmitting from my 18 foot trailer to my cab.

I use the TST 507 system with external sensors. Audible alarm, easily read display, rechargeable portable display, dependable transmission without booster.

Much better than the Dill system in my last trailer which had none of the above.

TPMS recommendations

We use the TST 507 system also, as do several of our friends. The system has been flawless and the company that sells them is first rate!

Number of axels doesn't matter. You just buy the number of sensors you need, two in that case.

We use the Dill Trailer TPMS which is an internal mount. Works well for us and no rubber valve stem issues that some have with valve mount systems. The battery should last as long as the Michelin ltx tires and I plan to change both at the same time approx. 6-8 years.

TST did a special kit for me, upon request, with three monitors for the 507 - one on each road wheel and one for the spare.

I had metal valve stems installed before installing the TST sensors.
