I just installed a TST System on the coach with 2 sensors for the Dolly. Since I have had multiple tire issues this last year (see thread links below) I thought it's about time I knew what was happening. The coach is parked outside 15' from the house and the dolly is in the garage. The distance from the monitor to the farthest sensor on the dolly is about 55' through the side of the house and it works fine. As the batteries lose some power I expect to see drop off but for now it looks good. The system was real easy to program and I had no trouble adding air to the tires through the sensor. So now that I have a monitoring system I hope all my tire troubles will go away.

EEZ RV TPMS came in the mail today. Took me about an hour to read the manual and program everything from the kitchen table. Nice thing about it is the trailer (four tires) is set up so that just by hitting the link button I can suspend the trailer so that it stops looking for it when I run without it.

Having been a Pressure Pro distributor/dealer I quit using them when they fell behind the curve and went to TST system.
Then we bought the Magna and it has a SmarTire system which is no longer supported for RV use. Sensors are internal which I like but they cost $80 each and last about 7 years. So I have to add that into my tire change prices or use the TST 507 system I already own. Don't like the cap sensors on the 507 but the flow throughs are too long for our front and tag wheels. TST does have internal sensors but they go on the inside of the stems so the tire shop has to watch what they're doing to get it right. The SmarTire sensors strap to the inside of the wheel.
Still weighing my options since the DW's health has pretty much put a stop to our travel this year.

TST does that too, or at least the 507 I also have does it.

How does the mounting bracket fit on housing? Mine was such a sloppy fit that I can't use it.

Snapped right into place but I do not like the suction cup on the side glass because it blocks my (smallish) rear view mirror and I need all of that view that I can get. I am actually thinking about simply using some industrial velcro and mounting it in the bottom center of the dash. I can see that spot right through the steering wheel.
I am planning on installing an EGT so I need to plan ahead on where I will mount that as well.

Prayers lifter for DW's health! I considered some other systems with internal sensors but I was really trying to stay portable in case we flip this coach for something else. I tow a race car and the real reason for going with a system at all was due to the cat that you really cannot see the trailer tires that well so one could be back there smoking and you don't know it for a while.

Thanks.
I have the EZZTire system.

It was easy to set up.

You can get both cap and air through sensors.

If you need to contact them they are great.

One of the most important factors, in my opinion, that has been missed here is whether or not your system will measure pressures BEFORE you start driving. Many of the systems discussed here will only start measuring after the coach is driven several miles. I want to know the pressures before I start off. Two systems that will work without having to drive off are the TST and the EZZZ tire. This should be a deciding factor in purchasing a system.

The SmarTire system also does it now that I replaced the sensors. The old sensors didn't start broadcasting till you started driving, the new ones broadcast all the time. Dealer says they found very little difference in battery life between the two.

For those that sent good thoughts for the DW, she died in Aug 2016 after a liver transplant.

The Cons, just another thing on your valve stems or tires that can malfunction and leak.
Nothing, is a substitute for checking your tire pressure everyday Before you move.
Even if I did decide to buy one, I would still inspect my tires before I move. Just my 2.
