TPMS Systems

We have a 2016 Entegra Aspire 40P. Very interested in a TPMS for coach and toad.

There seems to be a ton of them out there, varying in cost and features.

Can anyone share their experiences and product lines or dislikes.

Thanks
Dwayne

Dwayne-

This is a popular question on iRV2, and there are many threads and posts that you can find by using the "Search" feature. In addition, here is a link to a Google search of iRV2 posts for the last year that have the abbreviation "TPMS" in them.

I just bought the Tire Tracker at the FMCA Rally in Indio Ca. What sold me on that one it has a lifetime guarantee and others are 1-3 years. Its a family business and I think 2 sons and a daughter work there too so they should be around for a while. So far it works really good and real simple to set up.

Pressure Pro is probably the best on the market today....also probably the most expensive.

Used to be a Pressure Pro distributor/dealer. Gave up on it when the batteries in the sensors went dead and bought a TST 507 system which has replaceable batteris.
The present rig has a SmarTire system which is no longer made for RV's although parts are still available.

I've been using the TST507 for several years and it works great. The batteries are easy to change, flow thru valves, plus great customer service.

Another vote for TST. The 507 system is more reliable than the 510 system I started with. Batteries are easy to replace and cheap if bought on Amazon. Customer service is great.

Today for $39 I bought a TST monitor to use on my toad when we're driving around unhooked from the MH. Our 2014 CR-V has an absolutely worthless TPMS system which false alarms a lot and can't tell you which tire has low pressure only that one "might"! Twice today I stopped to check the tire pressures after an "alert" and both times they were totally normal. Since I already had the TST sensors on the wheels, by investing a few $$ I now have a TPMS as good as the one my 2009 Malibu had which reported the pressure in each tire!

For those who wonder why I couldn't do the same thing with my existing monitor, the TST system is designed to allow you to stop displaying the toad's sensors so you don't get alert beeps when the car is disconnected from the MH, but there's no simple way to stop displaying the MH sensors so you can use the monitor in the toad without the MH being connected.

I have a TST507 with flow through sensors.
I like the interface.
i would not get flow through next time, i remove them to add air anyway.
Had to get a repeater because of the toad.
one thing i notice is tgat all 6 sensors read 4lbs low.
Using my reference air gauge on my truck and the truck reads exactly the same as my air gauge. I am suspecting that the TST head is not translating the value received from the sender into the correct PSI.

But my main interest is the alarms.

Regards,
Dan

X2 on the TST 507. Had them on our Aspire and moved them to the Anthem. Never a problem.

I had flow through sensors on my MH and traded them in for the "old" version at no cost to me. I couldn't add air well with them in place either.

As for the sensors reading low, I think that it's intentional because there is more chance of a tire failure with too low a pressure. This way TST knows that everyone will end up with a few extra pounds in their tires which is far less of a risk than running them on the low side.

The Tire-SafeGuard system I have allows you to offset the tire pressure readings to compensate for known difference between measured (reference gauge) and reported tire pressures. It's discussed on page 8 of the user's manual at this link. While this is done on a gross basis (that is, for all sensors, rather than individual), it worked well for me. The range is plus or minus 9 psi.

Not to knock the TST system- just noting this in case this would be important to someone evaluating his options for a TPMS.

My Pressure Pro Monitor is now 11 years 6 months old. Way past any warranty on it.
I did replace the sensors after 9 years 6 months because I had started to get some lost signals from some of them(10 installed)

No problems with it being + - 1-2 PSI within my uncalculated air gauges.
Never have needed to add any air during my 5 month summer trips.

Toad tires are NITROGEN filled, any issues with using an external TPMS?
