Tpms ?

Does the Pottery Barn include the TST tire pressure system? If not, has anyone added one and does it integrate with CZone?

Pottery Barn does not come with a tire pressure system. We bought the TST Tire Pressure Monitor and us the monitor in our truck when we are driving. It monitors temperature and pressure and is very easy to use. We programmed each of the sensor that got on the valve stem to the display that we keep in the truck.

Ours does not communicate with the CZone system. The CZone system doesn't have a built in page for tires so I don't think it interfaces. I have not seen anything on the Cerbo GX that mentions tire pressure.

Andy, thanks for the reply.

I contacted Airstream Support and they said:

“The Tire Pressure feature on the 2024 Pottery Barn was introduced in 2023 and continues to be a standard option on the latest model. ”

Kind of make me go hmmmm?

Interesting

Thanks, Chuck,
that is really interesting. I guess I have to take a look at how to upgrade what the Czone is monitoring.

The CZone - TPMS interface is on the Ď22 Classics. It interfaces via a wireless repeater.

On the plus side, it reports temperature and pressure and the sensors are held inside the tires with a metal hoop instead of a valve-stem mount. It always worked.

On the negative side, the CZone frequently reported low pressure, while parked, in the middle of the night. The alarm turns the bright CZone screen on. Bad feature.

[The only worse CZone interface feature is the never ending low propane alarms and screen turn ons when the *first* bottle runs low. Ridiculous that Airstream hasnít pushed a fix for this. ]

We swapped the Airstream factory TPMS out for the RAM sensors that integrate with the truckís display.

The Airstream factory sensor system was more reliable, but itís one less gizmo in the cab.

The utility of a TPMS-CZone interface seemed very limited since youíre usually standing in the trailer when you see the pressures.

Our dealer could not integrate the TST with the CZone, but I canít see why I would need it. The display works fine. The less I need to rely on CZone, the better.

Yeah, looking at how Airstream rigged the TST-CZone interface up, maybe not an easy retrofit.

I have some regrets about removing the TST sensors for the sensors that came with the RAM. The UConnect system in that truck is not very reliable whereas the TST wireless unit was bulletproof.

In our Classic, the TST is supposed to work, but I could not see the value. I can check enough things on the CZone to keep me busy.

We had the TST on our Unity, and I agree, it's solid. I don't mind having the additional display. I have enough integrated "stuff" to work about.

Perhaps a bit tangential to the conversation, but the TPMS limits for the CZone/TST combo can be reset so that you don't see the low tire pressure warning messages in the Airstream on the CZone panel. It's a pretty simple procedure to reprogram...I've done it a couple of times.

Good to know. I do not plan to hack my CZone, Iíve messed up enough things. Forscan is my limit.

The CZone reprogramming is easy/peasy. Airstream tech support sent me the procedure. It’s no - or certainly very little - risk. When the TPMS sensors inevitable die when the batteries expire, then you’ll need to go through the procedure. Or, if you swap tires around you’ll want to reprogram otherwise your display will show the tires in the wrong place. It’s an easy procedure…don’t sweat it.

Yup, it was easy to reprogram the Airstream TPM.

I ended up with a pressure floor that was pretty low that did keep the CZone alarm from going off in the middle of the night. 50 PSI seemed to work, but that alarm pressure seemed too low for what might be best while driving (when you care [emoji3])

Iím happy with CZone generally. I just think Airstream needs to rethink how it handles Alarms.
