VMSpc with Smart Tire on the Allure

I have been diddling with the VMSpc on the coach and discovered that it displays tire pressures and temps. I am not familiar with the Smart Tire system and their web site says they no longer support their systems for the RV industry.

Are the sensors inside the wheels? There are obviously no sensors visible on the valve stems (I also have a TST system I took off the traded coach). If this Smart Tire system is indeed accurate, I will only need to use the TST for the toad.

I have not had a chance to weigh this coach and will do so at my first opportunity. The dealer put new tires on it last week and has 120 psi in the front tires and 85 in all the rears. I am curious if that is about what others with this coach are running.

I have read that the Smart Tire system is inside the tires but no first hand experience.

My rig has smaller tires and weighs only 32,000 lbs.

I run 115 front and 95 rear based on weighing the axles. I am at max weight on the front axle.

Yes in fact the tire pressure and temp sensors are in the tires attached to the wheel.

Ours, on our 2004 Intrigue work well, but I am going to replace them when I put new tires on this fall.

I just had to replace a sensor in one of my tires. It installs on the rim inside the tire. I have just finished reading the instruction manual on the system and re-programming it. It appears to be working well at the moment. Do you have a copy of the Smart Book?
