I’ve had TireTraker for several years, currently on the third motorhome. I like it. I use it to monitor the motorhome and the toad. Have never owned any other external TPMS. YMMV

I am also researching this. I've found many recommendations for the TST system.

Another one no one seems to mention is Bellacorp found at Amazon. I have had one of these going on 3 years and it has worked quite well. I have 10 sensors and the ones on the toad do not require a booster. It seems to be modeled after the EEZTire unit.

I bought the TireTraker system for the following reasons:

1. Best price at the time for a system with 10 sensors and a repeater.

2. Easy to program and use.

3. Low-cost user-replaceable sensor batteries

4. Cap-type sensor to prevent air loss through the valve stems.

5. Lifetime warranty

6. Great customer service

I was using a Tire Safe Guard for about 3 years. Worked great initially on the front 6. When I added 4 more for the dolly and toad the system went nuts. Never could get reading right out of any tires after that. No luck getting anyone to return my calls at the company so I trashed it.

I then bought the Bella Corp model and use it on the front 6. It consistently reads about 6 lbs lower than a hand held analogue truck gauge and a digital hand held gauge (those to seem to be in harmony). I emailed the company about the difference and they assured me theirs (the Bella Corp) is the more accurate. Not sure about that, but I am relatively happy with the unit. I may add the back toad and dolly 4 soon.

TST 507 with Color Screen

I upgraded the the color model when I gifted my old system to my nephew. Have always had excellent and fast support from TST. The color monitor was a huge improvement as it's much easier to read in sunlight.

My Bellacorp sensors are within 1-2 lbs of my analog JACO gauge. If I remember right, the sensors read just a little higher, so when I am adjusting the tire pressure I keep that in mind so that the sensors show the recommended pressure.

That's good info and gives me some comfort. As mine reads on the low side(5-7 lbs) , I am wondering if I have 2 gauges (1 digital truck and the other analogue truck) that are out of whack?

TST507 gets my vote. I have sensors on both the MH and toad. Very calming to know everything is being monitored. Exactly 10 less things to worry about, unless the alarm goes off.

Just don't screw the sensor on too tight...I smashed the valves doing this. It's a big surprise when you take off the sensor and air doesn't stop coming out the stuck valve...it's a panic to get the sensor back on as fast as possible. I now carry extra valve stems and the removal tool.

I have been using Pressure Pro for 10-12 years. Don't mention them any more because most people like cheaper ones. I tried cheaper ones in the beginning which ended up being the most expensive, cause I threw them away. Pressure Pro always works. I believe they are the only ones which can be intergrated into a Silver Leaf monitoring system.
