I have no intention of going without TPMS on my coach. Too much at stake. Very expensive tires and a low tire undetected could be disastrous. Yes, you can always hit something in the road and have a sudden blowout. No preventing that. Not sure I can see a TPMS system doing damage. Just be sure you screw the sensors on tightly, be sure you have metal valve stems.

I think the non-flow through sensors are small enough that you don't have to worry about the forces on your valve stems. It is not an issue on the coach because it should have metal stems. But on the toad, I wouldn't use a flow through because of the force on the rubber valve stems.

I have 4000 miles on my coach and toad with the sensors on all wheels. Absolutely no problems.

I have the EEZTIRE 515 TPMS and been satisfied with it. Here's the web site for a 10 tire monitor system:

TPMS SYSTEM (10 SENSOR)

The EEZTIRE system is fairly easy to set up, I maybe spent an hour from box opening to finish. I then had a local RV Tech mount the bracket to the dash & hardwired the unit to the ignition. Looks good & works well.

I haven't seen any "do not buy" stories on any of the TPMS, so you might just look around for sales on the internet.

Happy camping y'all!

Dave

EEZRV very happy with the system, I have it on a 40' diesel pusher with a tag, also tow a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I have flow through sensors on the coach and non flow through on the Jeep. I got and extender with the system however I don't need it, works fine without extender. One of the features I liked most about this system is the screen is easy to read and understand.

Our tireminder TM66 is doing great with our 12 tires. I did get the sensors designed for a Towed vehicle for my toad vehicle, and I did install the booster in the very back.

So, is the general concensus that there are no issues using the TST non-flow thru sensors on rubber valve stems of your toad? I am looking to do this with a Wrangler Unlimited.

Add me to the EEZRV TPMS users. I had the TireMinder, but like the EEZ MUCH better.

That's what I have on my Wrangler. They look like big valve stem caps. You really don't notice them.

ONE OTHER THING....before you buy make sure you like the display. The EEZTIRE T515 is very read able. It just cycles thru each tire on the screen & displays temp and pressure in large readable numbers .

"EEZRV Products" is the company, EEZTIRE T515 is one of their TPMSs.

I'm monitoring the Toad and Acme dolly only (4 wheels). I have transmitters in the 2 rear wheels of my Camry and the two wheels of the Acme dolly.

I'm using a Schrader TPMS retrofit kit (the wired version)
