2014 Jeep Wrangler question

I tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler. I also install Tire Monitors on the tires so I can keep tabs while I am driving my motorhome. When I am not towing the Jeep, the tire monitors come off. The problem is that the monitor system that is built in the Jeep will not work now. I took it to the dealership today and they said that the screw on monitors causes the built in monitors to not work. This sounds like B.S. to me. They can reset them under warranty but only a limited number of times.
Has anyone ever experienced this problem?

Thanks, Leo

I can't see how that could be correct. The tire monitor in the Jeep uses internal sensors. The sensors you added for the MH TPMS are external and should have no effect on the Jeeps TPMS. Separate system, separate sensors. Did the TPMS in the jeep go out completely, or just a single wheel?

We've had external monitors on our 2012 since we bought it. The internal ones still work (and have gone off a couple of times).

Your external add-on TPMS is completely separate and would have no interaction with the standard onboard system. The dealer is blowing smoke...

Engle, If your add on tire monitors are transmitting at the same frequency as the factory units it could cause problems. I would thing that after a couple of days the factory ones would reset after removing the add on. Just a note there is a recall on some 2014 Wrangler for the TPMS.

Curious on how to order.

After reading all of the feedback regarding TPMS I sure do want to get one and install it. The more I read the more I see I have to read. My 2014 Bounder has chrome wheels and because of that the valve stems are probably stainless steel. Upon reading the product reviews and understanding different metals deteriorate faster... So my first question is _ is this a concern I need to think about? My next question is what some say is centrifugal force and the weight. I would think it wouldn't mess up the balance of the wheel and I think what the concern is would be a valve stem issue. But I would think the safety of the TPMS outweighs the sensor weight. Last I had seen a forum regarding the tire monitor in the Toad. My Toad ( 2012 Jeep Liberty) also has a tire pressure sensor system. Some say they remove the RV's sensors when not towing and some say it does screw up the Jeep factory system. I'm just trying to get it right before I start looking at TPMS's. These forums have not steered me in the wrong direction in thinking and a lot of the people are extremely helpful.
