Tire Pressure Monitor System

Any recommendations on an aftermarket system?

I use the TireTraker system with 10 sensors, for several reasons:

1. Lowest cost I could find at the time for a system with 10 sensors

2. The sensors are the cap type, not the flowthrough, so there is less chance of air leaking from the valve stem.

3. The batteries are user-replaceable

4. It is easy to program


Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I got my Pressure Pro back in 08 at Quartzsite for our first motor home and toad. Since then, we've had two other toads and now a new motor home. Used the same system on all and still works just fine. I do suspect that the sensor batteries will be getting weak soon, so am planning on replacing them this year.

I don't know anything about other brands, but assume that they are just a good as my PP. I think the main point here is that your are being very wise in getting a TPMS. These units can save you mucho bucks, not to mention the safety factor. Having a blow out at speed can have disastrous effects.

Good luck

Ron

Been using that system for years. Works great. Great company to deal with.

Camping world has a 6 sensor TST system on sale for $244. Cheapest I found with a quick search so I just purchased it. Thanks for the input.

I had a really bad experience with TST and have heard that the EEZRV units are identical, so, at $289 for a 6 flow through system I'd try it if I were to trust another TPMS manufacturer

Hi jameshawk,
I use the Pressure Pro system. Had it since 05. It works as advertised and I would make the same purchase again. I have just started replacing the sensors due to the battery wearing out. It is a maintenance item one needs to plan for. The system saved me two times since 05. Both were on the toad. I guess it has paid for itself.

The technology is a commodity. All the different systems work. The key to your happiness is read the manufacturer's web site and purchase the systems that works the way you think and are comfortable with. For me, this is a one time purchase so cost is secondary to reliability, ease of installation and operation.

I've got a TST system with the 507 flow through sensors and replaceable batteries. I've had this system on my current MH for five years and it's still going strong. I replace the batteries once a year only as a precaution. $9.63/no tax/free shipping for 10 batteries from Amazon seems like cheap enough insurance.

The system works great, allows setting of separate lo/hi pressure and hi temp alarms for each axle. They have systems that can handle from 4 to 34 tires.

Highly recommended.

BTW, there is another identical thread in this same section you may want to check out as well.

I've been looking at the Tiretracker system, seems to be about the best priced and you can replace the batteries in it.

Hey neighbor, Silverhill here. While I have the TST system, IMO any of them are better than nothing. TST makes two types; one with replaceable batteries and one with 5-year batteries. I got the 5-year ones so I don't have to worry about when to replace them, or false readings when they start to lose voltage.
Check the ones you're looking at to see if they have a security feature that prevents removing them without a special tool.

X2. Bought on EBAY last spring. No major problems. Replacement batteries are cheap on Amazon vs one at a time in a drug store. I do not use the security device that was included. Pleased with purchase.
