TPMS

I did a search on Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems and the stuff I seem to have found is older info. With that being said I have a 2015 Newmar Canyon Star on order and was wondering what you all would recommend for a system?

I have TST 507 with flow through sensors on the rears and regular on the fronts (due to wheel cover clearance issue). Works very well.

TPMS

You'll get a variety of opinions, but the fact is that all the major brands seem to operate as advertised.

I decided on a TST 507 system two years ago, and have been very pleased. Works well, friendly and excellent customer service. I had some initial programming problems, and they instantly sent a new display unit. I would recommend the company unhesitatingly.

I have used the Tire Minder 10 wheel system for about a year. Works fine. Batteries are user changeable. Have not needed customer service.

I bought it on EBAY for about $350. Seems to be higher now.

I use Tire SafeGuard with 10 Cap Sensors and their booster for my trailer tires.

Do NOT buy the Doran TPMS, it's junk!

Our requirements were:

10 tire sensors

Cap-type sensors to reduce the chance of air leakage

User-replaceable batteries in the sensors

Range booster for the toad sensors

Least cost

Easy programming


We found that the TireTraker system met all our requirements!

Does anybody have experience with SECUTIRE TPMS? Very inexpensive, and maybe good for my truck and utility trailer.

I have the TST507 and learned a new value for them quickly. Got a new set of tires for the coach and after installing the TPMS, it became very apparent that one of the front tires was losing 10 pounds of air/day

Safety first, and learning this the easy way made the purchase price worthwhile.

I have the Pressure Pro 10 tire system that I purchased in 2008. Recently change to a tag axle coach and had to purchase a new 16 tire system plus two additional sensors.

Of the original 10 sensors, I'm still using them and have had no tire leakage at all.

The monitor is larger than any of the others I've seen so much easier to read while driving.

Yes, fully agree about their customer service being excellent. Where I commented that I had two regular sensors on the front originally I bought flow through sensors all around. Went to put them on, found a clearance issue, discussed with TST and they provided the solution and readily swapped the sensors out. Great service!

I have had the Tire Minder system on my coach and toad for over three years and think its fantastic .. Monitors pressure and temperature which are both critical ... Plus - you get life-time free batteries....

I've used customer service a couple of times to help me with things I couldn't remember how to do and they were always great ....

HIGHLY recommend this system - got mine plus the signal booster from Camping World....
