I would look at the Tire SafeGuard System. They offer all types of sensors including internal wheel sensors.

I have had a pleasurable experience with the TSG system after a horrible disaster trying to use the Doran RV360 TPMS for three years.

Sprinter tire valve and pressure issues

I own a 2013 Winnebago View with a Sprinter Chassis. I could not measure the tire pressure following the manual instructions even after removing the liners. Hard to believe they sell this vehicle this way. I had Mercedes Benz install valve extenders. The back right outer valve failed at 15,000 miles. Ruined the tire and the trip. I went on the internet and found out about the Tire-Man who sold me a metal valve kit for the View. Finding someone to install the kit was the problem. I asked Fretz RV in Souderton, Pa if they would install the kit. They referred me to Ken Belli of Souderton Truck Center (2157231900). It took them about 3hours to install the kit and it cost me $300. They did an excellent job. Truck specialists know al lot about this issue. What L learned

The factory equipped model is impossible to check tire pressure or fill air

Rubber tire valves should be replaced with metal valves

Rubber tire valves will fail if you add valve extenders

Call the tire man and find a truck specialist to install metal valves

Small world. I have Souderton Truck Center work on my MH and my Diesel truck. They are excellent mechanics and do great work.
