I have the TST 510 system, works great. Tire pressure reported within 1 pound of my Snap-On digital gauge.

Pros:
Easy to configure
Accurate tire pressure
Easy to read monitor
No need for range extender (on 40' coach)

Cons
Sensor batteries are not user replaceable (they are on the 507)

There are several threads on here dealing with this topic, use the search feature and you should find comments on most brands of TPMS.

Purchased the Tire Tracker system with 8 tires - sensors have replaceable batteries...reports pressure and temp of each tire...so far has worked great!

Pressure Pro tire sensors do not have user replaceable batteries.

I think these screw on monitors all are prone to causing leaks. Zero truckers use
them. Better is to check your pressures from time to time, and use an infrared
laser thermometer to check tire temps when you stop. A low tire will run hot, and
thus alert you to a problem. Temps will be higher on the sunny side of the coach, and will vary according to ambient temps. You'll see higher readings on hot summer days. Your tire manufacturer can advise you on the temp range for
your set up. This is a quick, easy way to safely monitor tires. I've been doing it for 3 years and 31,000 miles and no problems.

The monitors are used for while I'm driving so we can be safe. I still check them manually when we're parked before leaving

Forstpoet, good call. That is what I use my PressurePro system for. Checking tire pressure only tells you what the pressure is when you check it, not going down the road 20 minutes later. I have heard lots of tales about the first time someone noticed a toad tire was bad was when they saw smoke in the mirrors!

Using the TPMS for peace of mind is a good call. As far as leaks, I have 10 installed (MH and toad) and have had no problems with them. Others may have had different experience. Now that I have a TPMS, I would not go with out one.

Easily the best MH "upgrade" I have done in the last 20 years.

Have had a Pressure Pro system on 6 mh tires and 4 towd tires since Nov 2007. Never remove them even when motorhome is in remote storage during the winter. Always works. Never a problem.

My TST system has never caused a leak.

I keep the monitor on the dash next to my GPS. This allows me to easily hear the audible alarm should the tire pressure/temperature move outside my preset limits. I set it to alarm at 10% below and 15% above my desired pressure and at 157 degrees.
