never had repeater on my 36' HR diesel with the stretched dolly and car, mounted the external antenna as high as I could on side window Im betting it was 16-18 feet to the rear tires on the car, the repeater is just added insurance.

I have used Pressure Pro for years and have had a few friends use them as well. We all have been happy with them. Only draw back I have experienced is the need to change any rubber valve stems to steel as the rubber fails due to the extra weight/stress.

Progressive is what we have used for over 5 years and the same unit on two coaches. Has worked fine. Would buy another one if it ever became necessary and have 3 friends using them now, without a hitch.

I have a question for any of you. How do the tire monitoring systems do when the tires have that balancing sand in them?

Not good at all unless you also have the proper valve stems installed that prevent the sand from clogging the stem.

Please call me regarding your system, I did not receive your email, but will happy to get your system up and running correctly. 770-889-9102 my name is Mike

TST get's my vote - used two other systems, both were good, TST get's the nod for longer lasting batteries in the sensors, easy to set up and use display.

I know two people who had his TST sensors seize on them, one cranked them on as tight as possible, something the manual (and commonsense) says not to do. The other stripped the tread when he put it on and kept cranking down on it. Both of these were user errors and not TST's fault - just something to think about.

Good luck.

For those using beads or sand for dynamic balancing you need special valve cores that have a screen to keep the sand out otherwise they leak. Best solution is to install the ones that fit inside the tire cavity/rim. Batteries are supposed to last 5 years which might correspond with a tire change. I have the aluminum rims and can't fit the ones on the stem.

IMHO the above response is exactly why we sold our Tiretracker system and went with TST. Thanks Mike for taking care of a fellow IRV2 forum member.

Closure

I bought the TST system. rvupgrades.com had the flow through 507 TPMS with 6 senders for $274. Campers World price was $90 more...

I also got 4 sending units for my trailer and the repeater just in case there were connectivity issues.

If there is a weather window we head out Monday February 3rd for the Keys via Pensacola (Naval Air Museum), Ocala (to visit with a retired buddy) and possibly Vero Beach. Just a zig zagging through FL. We will RON at the Miccosukee Casino at the top of the Over Seas Highway and then the 146 miles to KW the next morning.

Thank you all for your input.

Ralph and Barb Ledger

I've used a TST system for the last four years. Calling them is the best user experience I've had in some time. Add my name to the list of people recommending them.

I have personally posted in so many different threads from people asking "what is the BEST tire pressure monitor". So after reading most of the responses and hundreds of posts, I think the correct answer is the following.

The best TPMS is one that you will use 100% of the time and will have complete trust and faith in the system to be reliable when needed.

None of them have the accuracy of a calibrated tire psi gauge BUT that's not what they are intended for. They are used to make sure your tires maintain the Cold Inflation Pressure that you had set them at. This comes from weighing your RV and reviewing the tire manufacturer psi tables.

If the CIP is not maintained you risk tire failure plus possibly more damage to your RV than you could ever imagine.
