Newly installed TPSM system

I'm not sure if this should be posted here or underneath RV technology reviews but here goes…

We are a professional BBQ team and have a 34' concession trailer that we use like a camper attending 20 plus weekend events per year from PA to SC and will go as far west as Kansas City this year. It's a bumper pull and tows pretty well behind our 2015 F350 diesel.

After losing two tow master tires in less than year (changed to Goodyear G614's) I wanted a TPSM to keep track in what was happening in back.

We had to go with internal sensors because of the rim design and the fact that we are always getting really close to curbs.

I am thrilled so far with the TPMS setup but there were some learning curves. First, stay away from their older style valve stem mounts. One of their resellers sent me the older style bracket types that bolt on to the valve stems and two of five valve stem seals leaked because there really is no good way to hold the valve stem while your putting on the bracket. Having said that, the other three are holding just fine. TST recommends the bands which are rock solid and cheap at under $10 which is the same bands that Ford OEM's for $44.

I was losing signal and TST said that I was at the edge of where I possibly need a repeater so they sent me a new style high-powered repeater that made an instant difference. I however, would recommend this repeater with any length trailer. It makes that much of a difference.

TST's customer service is second to none as I will admit I'm not an easy customer to deal with and if somethings going to go wrong with an installation or product it's probably going to happen to me. Our set up now includes monitoring 5 tires ( four trailer tires and a spares ) Some of which are almost 40' behind the cab of the truck. My tire started out at 100 psi this morning and 68° now, two hours into our trip they are all 115 pounds and about 115° on a warm summer day driving through DC traffic. I wish my truck monitoring system at the same capabilities but with the set up, maybe I can order five more sensors and monitor those tires as well and not have it affect the OEM system.

Kudos for a good product, great customer service and have them just a little bit of patience when installing an aftermarket product.
