Howdy!
I would like to install a TPMS on the old girl (coach...NOT the DW ). However on my rear tires there is only one air filler hose for both tires. How would it work?

I think it would work the same except you wouldn't know what
rear i/o is going low.

TPMS is a great investment IMHO.

You'll need to be more specific on your dual set up. Do you have a "Cats Eye" type of set up which connects both valve stems to a single filler stem and balances the PSI between the two tires? Are you sure the two are connected together or is the stem for your inner dual just not accessible?

I've often wondered if a TPMS would work on a set up designed to balance the PSI on duals. My understanding is that a "Cats Eye" type of balancing device will close off one of the tires if it senses a rapid loss of pressure to avoid causing both duals to go flat. If that's the case I don't see how using a single TPMS sensor on the single valve stem would do much good.

Hopefully we'll hear from someone who has tackled this.

Sounds like your current stem is connected to both tires and therefore maintains even pressure between the two at all times. So if one tire gets a leak they both deflate? If this is true it's a bit risky as you loose air in both tires if one is compromised. If you are happy with this stem and no leaks then you only need one sensor per side. I would personally change to individual stems but that is your choice. Obviously you would then need two sensors per side and new valve stems.

Well just got back from dropping the old girl off for some Spring maintenance. Found out that each tire does have its own stem. However the stem for the outer tire is just about inaccessible. So I'm having stainless extenders installed. Thanks for all your help. As usual irv2 comes through again!
