Which TPMS System

We put a TST system on ours when we bought it two years ago. When I spoke with their sales lady, she recommended OEM style internally mounted sensors, that mount to the drop center of the wheel with metal bands. This sensor type leaves the valve stems alone.
We used 6 of these on the Sunseeker MH and the dolly. Discount Tire had a small charge to break each tire down, install and balance and we have had two trouble free years and 21k miles. The batteries on these last up to 7 years, which should be about when we are ready to replace the tires. TST charges a core charge when you buy the replacements and then issues a refund when you send in the old sensors.
For the TOAD we used screw on cap sensors and replace the batteries every year. The system alarmed once on loop 285 South of Atlanta and we were able to cross several lanes of traffic and were slowing to a stop when the drivers side dolly tire went completely flat and the bead broke. Something had punctured the tire. No Drama. Without the TPMS we would not have noticed it until the tire started coming apart.
We have gone to flat towing recently due to replacing the TOAD with an AWD that can't be dollied and will pick up two more cap sensors for these added tires. We also replaced their original B/W monitor with their new, much easier to read, color monitor. Their customer service has been "over the top" when I have called them.

Add me to the fan club of EEZ TPMS, yesterday while on I-20 heading toward Sweetwater TX the monitor sounded the alarm. I saw that the PSI was down to 88 PSI we were heading toward our campground so I continued on toward the campground. On arrival the PSI was down to 83 PSI. After setting up I tried to find the leak, sprayed the stem and around the tire with soapy water but couldn't find the leak. Called Coach Net when through the drill with them, they were very good about trying to help. They called back to let us know that it would be in the morning before they could get a tire to us. So we are sitting around waiting for the tire to show up

If you don't have a TPMS, I would highly recommend getting one, I feel that it saved me from a big problem

Agreed! May not be as important for short trips, but my TireMinder TPMS saved my bacon a couple of weeks ago. Alarm started going off as we were turning onto the entrance ramp to I95 at Fredericksburg VA - left rear trailer tire was losing pressure fast. So instead of getting on I95 and accelerating to highway speeds, which would have ripped the tire apart and almost certainly would have damaged the trailer, I was able to pull off safely and get the spare tire mounted before we continued. Yay!!

The moral of this story: Get a TPMS and use it. And it doesn't matter much which brand you get, just get one!

As a side note, I keep thinking of all the "China bomb" tire pictures we see, shredded tires, damaged trailers, etc. Then I wonder how many of them were using a TPMS, and how many would have saved themselves a lot of damage and hassle if they had been using a TPMS.

I have used the TST brand for over 9 years and have been very pleased. It saved us when we picked up a piece of metal in the toad. We were able to watch the pressure and determined we could make it to the campground. We were then able to put enough air in the tire to make it back to a tire place.

They have always been helpful on the phone. We started with the 510 system and upgraded to the 507 Flow Through for the coach and 50 RV cap sensors for the car. We also added a repeater (4 years ago) when we found an occasional sensor dropping out. We also found that our Indoor/Outdoor thermometer was on the same frequency as the TST system, so we changed that out. It has been a strong system. They just came out with a new color display. It is larger and has text on the screen to tell you what the tire issue may be. This is in addition to the blinking and audible alarms.

All the new systems come with a repeater as part of the kit and they recommend everyone use it.

I really recommend TST.
