2006 Travel Supreme .. Tire Monitor

I'm ready to purchase a tire monitoring system and need some input on products you have recently purchased. I'm looking for a reliable system that both registers tire temp and tire pressure. I'm going to monitor both the tow car and the RV. Does anyone have experience with these products and can you make a recommendation?

I have been using the TST (Truck System Technologies) system for over 4 years. In fact, the system I am using is before they came out with the user replaceable batteries and the flow through units. I send my non working transmitters back to them and they replace the batteries. The system has already paid for itself in that I have had two inside rear flats that I would not have known about soon enough to prevent damage if I had not had the monitors. The system shows PSI and Temp on both the MH and the toad. I love it.

I too have been using the TPMS from Truck systems. I get up in the morning and check my tires with a cup of coffee from the drivers seat. Works great.

I just purchased the Tire Minder manufacturer system (but not labeled) via Ebay. The cost for 10 tire monitors was $370 or about $100+ less than the branded sources, Camping World and TST. Delivery across the country in two days (but promised in 5 business days) with no shipping costs.

I mounted the monitors and they correlated with my hand gauge tire pressure reading very well. One exception. The monitor was 4psi lower than the tire gauge on a 115psi tire.

I have not used the system since mounting the valve senders, but many others are successfully using and buying the Tire Minder units.

Vender service is unknown. Hopefully, I will not need to use the 3 year warranty.

+3 on the TST system. I have all ten wheels covered; flow-through sensors with replaceable batteries. One year and no problems, but I have replaced two batteries recently. No difficulties there.
