It's time to replace all 6 of my motorhome's tires. I have the Smart Tire system and one of the sensors is bad. Bendix is the company that makes the replacement sensors. They are $83 a piece.
My other 5 oem sensors are working just fine, but I'm on the fence as to whether I should purchase 6 new sensors with the 6 new tires…?
Is there a common school of thought on this?
It's hard to go against the old "if it ain't broke don't fix it" school of thought, but it's also a bit of a pain to replace a bad sensor, as I have to ship the receiver up to a shop in Oregon to reprogram it each time I install a new sensor. I don't know if these Smart Tire sensors are known to have a limited shelf life or if anyone has any insight on this….?
Any thoughts are much appreciated
