Has anyone added a tire pressure monitoring system that they like and would care to comment about or recommend?

Many of us have added a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) to our RVs and toads and tow vehicles too. If you use the Search function and scan for 'TPMS', you will find many previous discussions.

There are a lot of TPMS systems on the market now and the bugs have been worked out of most, if not all, of them. Pressure Pro was the first to gain wide usage by RVers, but now there are several good ones. I'm sure you will get plenty of suggestions. I have the Pressure Pro system on mine, covering 10 tires (coach and toad). It is now six+ years old and still on the original batteries.

+1 on the TST system. Check the other current thread Mike Canter referenced. Some fun reading there

I went cheap,,,$89... Accutire @ Tire Rack.com...works fine, just be sure to replace the rubber seal in the valve cap sending unit with a real "o" ring. Oh, and it comes with user replacable batteries, but only works for four tires. But works.

TPMS valve stems

I have read TireStat system requires metal valve stems why? And do all TPMS do?

All motorhome tires should have metal valve stems just for safety. Probably the reason their requirement is so the heat is transfered down the metal stem for more accurate temp readings and that the extra weight of the sensor on a rubber valve stem would cause the stem to bend due to centrifigal force as the wheels are spinning.

I use Tire-SafeGuard by GENCO Distributors for 10 tires. No repeater required and great customer service.

I would think mostly for strength reasons. You've got the extra weight of the sensor and don't want it flopping about on the end of a rubber valve stem. I don't think I'd want rubber valve stems on high pressure RV wheels anyway.

Another vote for the TST system. I've had it for two years for my rig and toad. Works great!
