Tire Pressure & Temp Monitor Info

Trying to sort through the many TPTM units on the market and would like any info anyone has using these systems. I've very interested in the unit put out by Hawkshead as it appears to be user friendly to install/operate, moderately priced and has replaceable batteries. Anything would help and since I am new to the MH world(pulled TTs for 20+ yrs), do anyone think these systems are a scam as I never had a problem pulling my TT across country. Thanks for help...

Welcome Easyrider-6
I have always used a Pressure Pro on my coach and toad. It only measures pressurebut thats all I need. I have never had a tire problem in 70,000 miles. It was easy to install and easy to read. Thats only my opinion. I am sure you will be getting all kinds of information on the many different ones out there. For me the Pressure Pro is tops.

I decided on the TST system two years ago mostly because of price but I did like the temperature read out. It's performed very well and paid for itself already since I nearly had an inside tire go flat in the very beginning and was able to pull over in time to find a nail and repair it.

There are a few threads on this so if you search you can also get a lot of information.

I've had the TST system for over a year now and love it. Easy to install and easy to read. MANY GOOD SYSTEMS OUT THERE, THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO GET ONE!!!! It only has to work once to make it a wise choice. After all RV's don't get flats too often. Once the tire pressure is too low you get a blow out. Not fun doing 65 MPH! The first two items I would put on any rig I bought would be a TPMS and a surge guard. Many happy miles and smiles

TST has a new RV system Truck System Technologies, Inc out now that we purchased about a month ago. Monitors pressure and temperature, replaceable batteries, 2 year warranty, and is easy to install. So far it works as it's supposed to.

We've been using the Hawkshead Monitor... Love it!!!! Best, it is very easy to use but most importantly, it monitors Tire Temperature also. Temperature can help see a problem, Before it is a Problem!!

I narrowed my choices to Hawkshead and TST.
I bought a TST TPMS 4 sensor system for our 5er July 1, and immediately left on a 6 week trip. Programming the receiver was very easy (I actually read and followed directions). It alerted me to low pressure once, tire picked up a nail. A week later it alerted me to elevated temperatures in all 4 tires! I thought it went bad, actually_ all four tires were failing from ply separation! The tires were distorted and worn bare in patches. The truck tire shop where I stopped said it was the first time they had ever seen all 4 fail at once.
BTW I'll never buy Triangle ST tires again.
