Jeep Towing

Is anyone towing a new vehicle using Pressure Pro sensors on the valve stems? We tow a 2012 Jeep Wrangler and want to install the Pressure Pro sensors on the valve stems (as we have on other vehicles). The problem is the jeep has rubber valve stems with the onboard pressure sensors attached and the tire shops advise they can't install metal valve stems. Question (1): Is anyone towing a vehicle with the OEM rubber stems...if so, what is your experience? (2): If you switched the rubber stems to metal, how did you accomplish this? Any suggestions...

Thanks
Paul

Just out of curiousity, why would you NEED a system when the Jeep already comes equipped with a TPMS (or at least mine did)?

I had rubber stems on my trailer with the sendors installed. After one trip I could see that the sensors were boucing around and hitting the rim enough the mark the paint. I replaced them with metal stems before the next trip.

Rubber stems on toad with sensors. No problems in 1 1/2 years.

You can't read the Jeep TPMS from the driver's seat of the moho.

Paul, is that the Doran sensors? You might just call them and see what they say. It seems like I contacted them before we bought ours to discuss the rubber vs metal valve stems, but I have slept since then. (Duh)

I was asking about our motorhome not the Jeep ... and the motorhome had metal stems anyhow.

And...I believe most tire mounting places can replace the stems if you go that route.
