Leave TPMS on RV while in storage?

I've researched systems but would like to know if you leave the TPMS on your RV while in storage?

The manual for the one I use says you'll get better battery life if they are removed from the wheel. I think the zero pressure turns them off...

I got the TST units that have a five-year battery. No reason to subject them to sun and weather when the MH sits, so they get put to sleep.

Most better units "go to sleep" with no motion (no tire rotation)..
Weather/sun is taken care of by tire covers or indoor parking. Our made in China batteries last at least 3 years and are ordered from China @ .25 cents each with free shipping. Probably made in the same factory as the $5.00 each Panasonics sold by Radio Shack

Hi hutchg,
I have the Pressure Pro system. If the coach is not to be moved for several weeks or more, I remove the sensors (from the valve stem) and store them in the coach basement. I'm getting 7+ years of battery life out of each sensor.

No need to remove them. Just loosen them so the pressure is relieved. When ready to go, just spin them back on tight and hit the road.
