Jeep Wrangler as Toad TPMS question

We have a 2013 Wrangler with on board TPMS. Our coach has it's own TPMS. Is there a way to activate the Jeep TPMS while towing so I can monitor the Jeeps tire pressure while towing or do I need to purchase additional sensors for the coach system? Thanks in advance.

You can't activate, or read your Jeeps on board TPMS sensors. Your best option is to buy additional sensors for your coaches TPMS system, and install them on the jeep. That's what I had to do with our 2015 Cherokee Limited. We have the TST system. All 10 wheels are monitored. When the Cherokee won't be used as a toad for a while, I remove the sensors, and store them in the coach.

Yes you need to add sensors to the toad that match whats on the coach. Let me know if you have additional questions.
Thanks, Mike Benson TST
