Installing Innotech TPMS

I recently purchased the Innotech RV TPMS with 10 sensors. I had right foot surgery in September and still have a foot/ankle in a cast and am unable to access my RV. I have gone through the manual where I will be able to install everything when my foot heals and I am able to get inside my MH. One thing not mentioned in the manual is the actual installation of the sensors on the wheels. I assume you are just supposed to remove the valve stem and install these in its place. I am really wanting to get to my MH and it kills me that I can't. Is it as simple as just removing the valve stem and then just screwing these in? Thanks.

Not sure I fully understand the question ?
I think you are wanting to remove the valve stem or its core? DO NEITHER! Simply remove the screw-on plastic cover (some times metal) from the stem and screw the "sending" unit on in its place.
We have metal stems on the MH and rubber in the toad - both work equally well as the senders only weigh .3 ounce...

x2.

The only additional decision is whether to add the security lock to each sender. I chose not to.

I apologize for the confusion with my question. I guess what I was asking is whether the actual poppet valve, which I called the valve stem, needed to be removed. Then all I need to do is remove the cap, and install the sensor on top of the valve? So I guess I would have to remove the sensor to service air into the tire, correct? Sorry if these questions seem stupid. Never taken a tire apart, but I know that the valve is normally removed when the tire is replaced.

jlabet the answer to your question is yes take off the sensor and add air when needed.
