After much research, I chose the TST systems. Glad I did
Not being a techno geek, I needed help in programming them (twice). They are always there when you call and will be happy to walk you through every step. With customer service like that, who could complain.

I just bought the EEZRV system which I saw at Quartzsite, good price and appears to be a good system. I liked the display on this system over the others. I have not used it yet I am having a little problem getting the sensors on the rear duals and tag axle, this is not the products fault. I can not get to the rear valve stems, I may have a tire shop install them.

Got a perfect spot in the new rig to permanently mount it now.

Nice! I just wired an inline switch on the wall of the battery compartment.
The negative to what I did is I have to remember to turn the switch on prior to departing. Which I did forget to do on my last trip. So now I move the moniter so as to not forget.

Safe travels.

With my EZZRV ones external sensors I can change the batteries my self. mine lasted a little over 2 years.

They've been using internal TPMS sensors on Corvettes for a long time, since they went to run flat tires with no spare. I've not heard of a dead battery in under 5 years and a lot of them last 8-9 years with no issues.

I've also got internal TPMS on a motorcycle and the life is much shorter for them. Mine are 3 years old and I have a low battery message. Unfortunately the sensor doesn't have a replaceable battery.

It could be the sensor is physically smaller on the motorcycle so the battery is smaller.

It's my understanding... the quality of an aftermarket TPMS sensor pales in comparison to the unit used in a Corvette... it should also be mentioned the price difference would likely support that summation..

I've been told by many of my Auto Technician friends to go with the external one due to this reason... As one person told me.. With all the things GM/Ford/Chrysler does wrong.. TPMS sensors and their reliability is actually very good... not so much with the aftermarket internal sensors..

I have this TPMS on my Victory Vegas Arlen Ness Edition Motorcycle. I absolutely love it plus it has easily replaceable batteries.

I usually get 2-3 years on the batteries.

If you buy any other system besides TST, I have to ask why? If enough people told me that the quality and service were the best, over and over again, I think that should be convincing enough. All I can say is you won't regret it. Give Debbie at TST a call at 770-889-9102. These are the friendliest most helpful people you'll ever deal with.

Here is a perfectly valid why:

I purchased a Pressure Pro in '03. I used it with ten sensors for 3 years and then on my full timing coach for 4 more years. The sensors were still working at that point but I replaced them before a cross country trip in 2010. I'm still using those sensors.

It saved me from a significant problem when I picked up a bolt in a drive tire. That one event payed for the system. My lack of any problem through 13 years of service is enough proof for me.

Is that a good enough "why".

I purchased the Doran TPMS which is similar to the Pressure Pro (but not as good) back in 2010. In the two years I had the TPMS I had multiple sensor problems which cost me two trailer tires in Calgary AB Canada on a trip up to Alaska plus LOTS of other headaches while using the POC.

Later that same trip I had 5 out of 10 sensors not reporting any information so that was the last straw. I dumped it on eBay and purchased a 10 Wheel Tire SafeGuard TPMS system. It has worked flawlessly from day one without any hassles or difficulties. So far it has alerted me to a slow leak in one trailer tire allowing me to get off of the freeway in plenty of time to get parked and call Coach-Net for them to install the spare.

Batteries are very easy to change out which I do every 2-3 years regardless of whether they need it or not. Batteries are $7-$8 for a set of 10.

As I had posted previously I have one on my motorcycle and another one on my wife's Saturn SW-2. The one in the coach gets placed in my Saturn Vue once we are parked for a spell.

I see no reason to dump my perfectly good TPMS just to purchase a highly over-rated TST TPMS.

Frankly, I believe every TPMS will have GOOD reviews and BAD reviews from people regardless of who makes them or whether they are knock-offs or what they are called.

The important point is that you HAVE one and USE IT plus you can TRUST the information that it is giving you while driving.

Make a decision on which brand, purchase and install it. If it doesn't perform to your expectations then dump it and try another one until you find one that you can trust and works for YOU.

Out of all of the different brands of TPMS's available today and after reading all of the comments, problems and various posts on the many forums throughout the Internet, I believe the top three brands in alphabetical order are Pressure Pro, Tire SafeGuard and TST. I don't think you can go wrong with any of those three.

BTW, this topic is probably THE most discussed topic right along with tires on RV forums. And the same information is posted over and over and over again. Will it ever stop? Probably not!

Thanks Cooperhawk, I will let you know the second it is ready.
