Planning on changing out our current Tire Monitor System and at the same time expand it to all 12 wheels when were in Toad mode. (System came stock with only 6 tires monitored, with the Tag missing. So will go with 8 for the rig, and four for the Toad.)
I like the concept of the the CrossFires for the duals. I suppose thes means I could go with one sensor for pressure per drive axle side. However, the tire temperature readings is also something I like to monitor.
Though I do not like to dismount a tire that is not being reparied or replaced. I do feel and 'in wheel' temperature sensor is preferred. So was wondering how those with CrossFire's get both tire temperatures, and do you do one Pressure Test off of the CrossFire, or is their a pass thru option to put inline from each wheel to the CrossFire? (Sorry if what I asked is not clear, as I know what I'm asking - just not positive how to word it
Best to all, and appreciate any input,
(Note: We have the first generation Smart Tire on 6 out of 8 of our Rigs tires. The batteries are at end of life (Sept 2003 build date of the coach, so the chassis wheels/tires/SmartTire were probably installed before then.). I have found sources to replace these, but our monitor is not expandible to 8 tires (from what I have been able to find out) and have not option for toad/trailer added tires. So, figure it is time to replace the full system.)
