A link to the various TPM systems recommended would be helpful.

Nope...since air pressure and temperature are pretty much in direct relationship with each other, no need to know both. The unit will check pressure every few minutes and is adjustable to what hi/lo pressure points you want to set at alarm levels. You can reset the normal pressure point just by removing the sensor for a few seconds and then reinstall. My coach is 43' plus my toad is another 16' and no signal repeater has every been needed.


Downside: As mentioned, it does cost more and replaceable sensors are $35 each...

450 is for pulling the 5er (and some other trailers).

We tow an inTech stacker for the rest of the toys and the car.

My experience with two different systems TST and Pressure Pro is that neither is nearly as reliable as systems with internal sensors like cars have. We have a 13 Jeep and an 08 Acura both with car systems. They work perfectly. Both TST and PP not so much. PP does work and we do use it, but not nearly as trouble free as internal systems. The issue I had with the TST was the removable batteries. I found it very hard to get the tiny screws out to replace the batteries. I like the Pressure Pro monitor far better than TST. PP very easy to read.

If you want to spend the money for an internal system it will likely work very well. Just remember you have to dismount all of your tires to do this.

If I had it to do over again I would get another Pressure Pro system. It works well enough to be worth the money. I have a 42' motor home and tow car. I can read all the tires without a signal repeater.

Almost continuous readout means an almost continuous battery drain. So if you need up to the second updates, be prepared for very frequent battery changes.

I think what lenny-shawna is saying that the continuous updates only happen during an ALARM condition (not as a normal occurrence)

I.e. The alarm is triggered that pressure is below 20% of normal.....and then gives an almost realtime update of pressure so you know how fast the leak is progressing. An update minutes later isn't as useful information.

EezRV system for me. Replaceable batteries is a plus. We have had it about 1.5 years now with no dropped wheels. It reads as soon as we turn the key since we had it hard wired to the ignition. Super easy to add or drop a toad vehicle. Reads pressure and temps. Easy setup as a bonus. We have a 6 tire coach and 4 on the Jeep. We got a free repeater as part of a Fmca deal. Installed with an on/off switch in rear closet and most times I forget to turn that on. Great system!

Great topic - many posts on this forum re TPMS. I have had Pressure Pro since 08 and the system works but I have had false alarms. Also had to get a coax to extend my antenna when I put sensors on the toad. Will likely have to replace all my 10 sensors soon because I cannot replace the batteries. Looking at new systems that use bluetooth and can monitor with a smart phone app. Still researching this aspect. See this link for instance.

Here is another interesting bit of information about aluminum stem threads and brass fittings on the sensors. Good tips to prevent corrosion

Hope my input helps.

Hello BBOB,
I read your post and want you to know that I would be happy to send you new screws and outer shells if you are having a problem with them. If you put a dab of di-electric grease on the screws it will keep the screws in good condition. Please feel free to call anytime if you have any additional questions or would like new screws and shells for your sensors.
Thanks,
Mike Benson

If you buy any other system besides TST, I have to ask why? If enough people told me that the quality and service were the best, over and over again, I think that should be convincing enough. All I can say is you won't regret it. Give Debbie at TST a call at 770-889-9102. These are the friendliest most helpful people you'll ever deal with.
