I have the Tire-SafeGuard product sort of installed. My problem is with the drive wheels where the holes in the mag rims are a bit small so I can't install the flow thru sensors there. They are having a sale on right now.

I would install the internal in the rim type of sensor next tire change. The batteries last for 5 years, same as tires.

The other issue to consider is if you are using powder or beads to dynamically balance the tires, you will need to install special valve cores with screens, otherwise the beads/powder interfere with proper valve action.

I have the non flow thru on the toad and the rest the flow thru design. Am happy with the display of the pressure/temp on the steers and towed.

Dan if you were about to replace the tires on a motor home, would you recommend the internal sensors or the valve stem external sensor. Thanks for your input.

Thank you for taking the time to post.

The benefits of our internal sensors are a seven year battery, and there is no sensor removal required to add air.

Another benefit of our internal sensors is that they will work with our external sensors for towed applications. They utilize the 507 display, and perform the same functions as our external sensors.

I currently use our 507 system, however, I will be replacing tires on my rig later this year, and at that time, I will switch to the internal sensors.

Both are very reliable, and will serve your needs.

With the internal systems, they come with a 1", 2", or 3" valve stems. You can mix and match based upon your rim depths.

Please feel free to contact us for more information as we are eager to assist you in selecting the right system for your needs.

Thank you again, and travel in safety!

Is that for 6 internal sensors or does this apply only to the external valve stem sensors.

I'm surpised that PressurePo has not been mentioned. They have been in business for a long time and work with SilverLeaf VMS system.
I have had mine for about 6 years and I am very pleased.

TPMS beware of tech issues

I recently bought the TST 507 system primarily based on reviews. I am still tweaking it to make it work for me. One thing I ran into on my 10 month old Entegra tag axle RV with the 30 day old TST sensors was I had one (flow thru) sensor kept dropping to zero. I swapped sensors around and had the same problem. It appears one of the brand new valve stem extenders installed by Spartan on my duals has a bad Schraeder valve. I wonder if some of the user problems are of similar defects. It takes a while to install your system and debug the errors. Don't give up on the first alarm!

Actually, not a long while at all. When my system arrived last year I opened it immediately and jumped right in. I had difficulty programming the monitor unit. After about 45 minutes, I called TST, and Dan himself answered the phone. After a 5 minute troubleshoot, he overnighted me a new monitor unit that very afternoon, and by noon the next day my system was humming smooth. I'm good with TST.

Guess I'll give you a call in the morning! (I'm an ex-Pressure Pro distributor and dealer).
Are the sensors the ones with replaceable batteries? That was my complaint with the PP product.

We have Tire Minder and have been satisfied.

I have wondered, however, why in the world the MH manufacturers don't at least offer as an option a good tire pressure system integrated into the motor home at delivery? It could not be that expensive an option to have installed during construction of the coach, and it could be set up with the monitoring instrument as part of the dash. Who wouldn't pay for something good? I know I would.

I know that people want the systems they want, and there are now plenty of preferences in the marketplace, but there is no good reason I can see that the manufacturers can't offer this set up at the factory even with the several different tire pressure systems that are currently on the market. If they can offer Sony and Pioneer and Denon sound systems, they can sure offer tire pressure systems which do a heck of a lot more to directly impact safety of the whole coach than AV systems.

Just my two cents.

Deek,
Some of the manufacturers do offer "SilverLeaf" VMS system that monitors various guages, cruise control, Transmission, and many more along with "Smartire". I had a Country Coach Inspire that did not have the SilverLeaf but now have the CC Intrigue which has the SilverLeaf and Smartire but I moved my PressurePro monitoring system to the Intrigue and it interfaced nicely into the SilverLeaf dash display (at some additional cost for a receiver interface). I am very pleased with this system that now displays the car and motorhome tires on the in dash VMS display.

I plan to purchase a system prior to our next trip, and have a question. The outside rear dual valve stem faces inward, I have problems just putting the cap on now. With the additional length of the sensor how do you handle adding air or checking
Thanks

The question was asked, How can they monitor temperature? The temp is taken from the tire valve. Tires carrying more than 65 LBS are supposed to have metal valve stems. That's a given on MH's and all larger tires that the tire valve be metal (brass) instead of rubber.

Even if the temperature at the monitor is 10 to 30 degree different from the actual tire temp you are just looking for a change in temps not the actual temps. If your tires were all running around 90 degrees and one suddenly jumped to 120 you'd have a problem or at least a concern and time to stop and look at the tire.
