TPMS for Dolly and TOAD

Anyone have a TPMS system for their dolly and TOAD?

2 sensors on the dolly wheels and two sensors on the rear TOAD wheels.

i.e. Acme dolly has tire pressure of 85psi, TOAD has tire pressure of 33 psi.

Many folks put TPMS on every tire rolling on the road. makes no difference if it's a toad or a dolly queen. Pressure doesn't make any difference, most systems I've seen you can set the parameters at the monitor screen on the dashboard.

On some systems all the "toad" tire pressures can only be set to the same PSI parameters. Having such a big difference between the dolly and rear toad tires might be a problem.
Still I would certainly do the research and find one that could be set to,the differences. At the very very least I would put them on the toad.

Since the display rotates through the sensors, you can set the low/high such that it won't alarm and just keep an eye on the actual values. I run them on my ACME EZE Tow but I also swapped out the valve stems for metal stems to prevent stem damage as the smaller diameter tires rotate much faster. Haven't installed the sensors on the rear tires of the car since I am fearful of valve stem damage and haven't come up with a good valve stem support yet.

There are a couple of threads on this topic and I have one on swapping the valve stems in this forum.

With the TST 507 tpms, pressures are set for each axle.
