Tire monitor

I am considering purchasing tire monitors for my 2009 tiffin. Need opinions of what type to get, thanks.

I also have TST.

Good system.
I do not recommend the flow-thru sensors because they are fairly large.
You should also use metal valve stems.

I just installed an EEZ RV T515 system today on coach and two, 12 sensors. Programmed all sensors sitting in the house, took them out installed them on coach and tow, turned system on, and in less than 5 minutes all were working and monitoring correctly. Could not ask for an easier set up. beyond that, can't tell you how well they will hold up. But the system appears to be pretty good.

I'm a big fan of TST.

Had one on both coaches.

Really like their flow through sensors. They are a few $ more than their standard sensors but worth it to me.

They have the best customer support/service going.

Same here. I like this system for a couple of reasons. First, it actually has text on the screen rather than icons for problems. Secondly, I like the fact it doesn't use a large rubber antenna. I had an issue with my monitor not long after installing and Tom replaced it immediately. I couldn't ask for better response. I used the standard sensors.

Just picked up EEZ Rv tpms and installing them was a breeze, taking 2wks trip this week we'll find out how they do. Good luck

Love the EEZRV tire monitor system. Super easy to set up and super easy to remove or add the toad. I hard wired mine and it starts reading almost immediately when I turn the ignition key on. Some systems won't read until the wheels are turning on down the road. I have had mine for a year and it works like a charm. I got the repeater as part of the deal but I forget a lot of times to turn it on (I added an on/off switch to the repeater) and it still reads the toad without issue.

QUESTION: When the display shows psi, we all know what it means.

When it shows Temperature, is that internal tire temp, or ambient air temp?

If you are refering to the EEZ system it is measuring the air temp in the tire as it heats up due to rotational friction of the rubber heating up......I think.......
