Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

I think it is time to acquire a tpms for our coach now but like most anything else there is a bunch of them. I don't seem to find any info on the signal strength of the sensors. I just seems like a lot of interference at the drive and tag axle with lots of metal. Do you have a specific brand in mind, cost is a factor but safety is a bigger one. And do you have them on your toad also during trips? Thanks, your opinions are greatly appreciated.

One last thing, theft of these sensors is it often a problem?

I use the TireMinder A1A system on a 40 foot coach without issues. It comes with a signal strength repeater that I installed near the rear of the coach (it just needs a 12v source to install). The unit sets up easily and performs well. While I didn't install the theft resistant features, they are included. I don't know how big of an issue theft of the sensors is.

JustCruzzin-

Below are links to three recent iRV2 threads on TPMSes. Some of the posts show owners with larger coaches.

It's unlikely theft will be a problem. The systems are proprietary and thus the sensors are not very useful for anyone other than another RV or heavy truck owner. And they're an honest bunch. ;-)

We have the TST System works great have the repeater in the bedroom wired into a light in the closet. Ordered it form Mike Benson the vendor here and he set it up, just gave him the pressure I wanted for the coach and the toad then I installed them came numbered to each tire, comes with a 3 year warranty.

I bought a TST 507 system for the Dutch Star, worked well once I got the repeater. The Magna came with the SmarTire system so the internal sensors are going to quit someday. Not sure if I'll get new internal sensors, go to the TST system that I already have and use the external sensors or go with the TST and get new internal sensors.

Same situation here except I do not use the repeater on our 38 foot rig.

I use TST system also on 2000 40' Intrigue and toad. I do not need the repeater to read all sensors.

Tire-SafeGuard for me. No repeater required, I have picked up my Toad 50 feet away. 24/7 customer service also.

Sorry about the delay in get back to this thread, many things going on right now.

The only reason I asked about theft is kids or vandals while parked at truck stops or rest areas thats all.

I going to look at all of those mentioned here and I appreciate the time you
folks have put into your research as to your purchases. It seems that the
only place to get a true assessment of produces is those that choose to
share their experiences with all of us. I hope to choose one this weekend
time permitting.

Thanks again
Roy & Kathy

The TST comes with the theft resistant do hickeys installed on the sensors so you need the little tool to take on and off. I think they transmit for 60 ft. They do sell a repeater separately. The next time I remove mine I'm taking off the theft device on them. TST is also a vendor on this site. Click on vendor spotlight in the sub forums. Good luck with your decision.

Pressure Pro system has been in business a long time and I believe it is the only one that will read out in your Silver Leaf dash display.
