I use pressure pro. It did its job when I had a valve stem extender start leaking rolling down the highway. All good.

Most systems also allow you to split the tow from the towed so you just push a button and it won't think all your tires went flat when you drive out of camp leaving trailer where it's set up.

PressurePro does not have user replaceable batteries, but they shut down during inactivity if you remove them from the stem. I use an egg tray/thingy so each unit has a home during off season (they are programmable by position, and once programmed is easier to leave that way than redo it every time)

I understand other systems have user replaceable batteries. Mine are 8 years old though, and all work fine.

I bought the Tireminder system but think most all of them are good. It seems Tireminder and TST are the most popular. I couldn't decide which to buy after researching both and just decided on the Tireminder solely based on the fact that I liked the display better. I really like having a TPMS while towing and it's well worth the money I my opinion. It's just nice to be able to constantly see the temps and pressure of the tires and be alerted if either fluctuate out of the set range.

I put this on a different TPMS posting/thread but thought it might interest subscribers to this thread. I too use an egg tray to store when coach and toad car is not in toad mode. Have an egg hole marked for each sensor. Works for me. Anyway here is a copy of the post I put in another thread:

Great topic - many posts on this forum re TPMS. I have had Pressure Pro since 08 and the system works but I have had false alarms. Also had to get a coax to extend my antenna when I put sensors on the toad. Will likely have to replace all 10 sensors soon because I cannot replace the batteries. Looking at new systems that use bluetooth and can monitor with a smart phone app. Still researching this aspect. See this link for instance.

http://www.gizmag.com/fobo-bluetooth...-system/33754/

Here is another interesting bit of information about aluminum stem threads and brass fittings on the sensors. Good tips to prevent corrosion

Hope my input helps.

Libero refers to another active thread concerning TPMS systems from another forum on iRV2. Here's the URL for that thread:

Quality TPMS

I use the EEZRV system on both tow rig and trailer ( up to 22 tires) which does display both pressures and temp. I put fresh batteries in which lets you be mobile during a walk around, but when on the road I use 12v. Besides most systems have a low battery alarm along with the other pressure and temp alarms.
One of the things I watch a little closer when I start a trip is my rear tow rig TP to make I got it right when I get carried away loading it . I usually stay around 10lbs all around TT and Tr.
Oop one of the best thing is a little money output in the first but you save in body work damage and wheels not to mention personal energy and the systems are expandable (add on sensors )

The link above is more imfo. but their mostly class A with toads

Here is an interesting video of a TPMS using RFID technology - no need for those pesky battery changes.

I would be more than happy to discuss the TST TPMS with you. I am available at 770-889-9102. TST offers a wide array of sensors, from Internal Sensors with 7 year battery, to a 5 year Military Grade Battery External Sensor, TST was also the 1st to come out with the Flow Through System with user replaceable batteries, and the 507 Cap Sensor with user replaceable batteries. Look forward to hearing from you
Thanks,
Mike Benson

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.

I've been using a TST 507 for several years and I've found it to be excellent. I did a lot of research on TPMS when I was looking and TTST won hands down. They are very innovative, and most OTR truckers use them. I have a 43' MH and I don't even need the repeater.

That, of course, depends on how your MH is constructed. Our 41' Dutch Star required a repeater as Newmar added reinforcing to the frame near/around the rear axle and it cut down on the signal strength.

Yep, just get the TST. I have one with the repeater in the front storage of my TT so I never loose the signal.
