Glad to see it paid for itself.

I have to assume you meant $250. If not, please advise where to get a $25 tpms.

It really amazes me that more people don't run with this device, no matter what the price. It literally will save a tire ($300), the fiberglass surround ($1000) and possibly your life(priceless). The same folks who won't use a TPS will eagerly plop down hundreds for the latest flat screen TV.

I suspect that a single TPM sensor for one wheel is $25. Since they already have the receiver and sensor on the RV, they added monitors for the toad wheels as well.

I have sensors on both the RV and toad. The tires on the toad ($250) are almost as expensive as the RV tires ($300).

i have been using the older tst truck system for about 2 years. it works. there is a newer system available now with replaceable batteries in the sensors.

After having a flat and ruining the tire, and inner fender on our toad, I'm in the market for a system as well. Any suggestions besides the aforementioned TST?
