Tire air pressure monitoring system.

Greetings fellow travelers and tax payers.

I have inherited a complete 'Pressure Pro, Tire Pressure Monitoring System.' Hand writing inside the box, "Tire Trak Sys. P/N RV6 $470.00." The system does not show evidence of use.

Is this a reliable monitoring system? I am assuming the Sensors are battery powered. How long would these sensor batteries last sitting in the box. I don't see anyway to install new batteries.

Is it a good idea to have this system installed or is this just another gadget? I have done without it this long, but it was free and I have plenty time to work with it.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

That's a pretty nice freebie. Pressure Pro has been a well respected brand of TPMS for some time now and a lot of members here are very happy with theirs.

I don't believe you can replace the batteries in the sensors you have. You'll have to buy new ones at something like $30 to $40 a pop.

However, IMHO it is well worth the investment. Many of us wouldn't feel at all comfortable driving without one. You can install it yourself very easily. If the manual isn't included, just download it and do some reading.

Good luck.

Rick

I installed the TST TPMS a couple three months ago. While great to have some pre-warning while running down the road. It's also great being able to do the pre-flight tire pressure check by just looking at a screen.

I got almost 8 years from the batteries in my Pressure Pro sensors and they were on the RV nearly all that time and sending a signal every 5 minutes. Just sitting in the box they are dormant, so ought to last fine.

Thank you for those replies. I'll put the installation on my work schedule (What work schedule?).
