TPMS on 2014 CRV

I have a 2014 CRV and I do have a TST TPMS on the coach. I have extra sensors (previous TOAD), but I'm told I can't use the external TST sensors on the CRV because of the sensors inside the tires

I'm pretty sure the internal CRV sensors are/were standard equipment, so anyone out there with a 2014 (or maybe a 12 or '13) CRV using external mounted sensors?

We use TST external sensors our 2013 CRV without any problems...can't see why it would be a problem for a 2014.

I have the Tire Safeguard TPMS on my coach and 2014 CRV toad and have had no problems. Due to the CRV's rubber stems I can only use the cap style sensors instead of the larger/heavier flow through style. Apparently some folks encounter interference between the OEM transmitters and the aftermarket TPMS's. The only explanation I can come up with is that there must be multiple frequency's that these systems (OEM and aftermarket) use and perhaps the aftermarket TPMS system's frequency is in some cases too close to the OEM's and that causes the problem. I could very well be wrong, but it seems a logical explanation.

I have the tst on my 2014 CRV and they work fine. Just came back from Roseau Mn 6 miles from the Canadian Boarder and they worked fine all the way.

I'm guessing that the person who informed you of that may have been thinking that you wanted to use the TST (or other external) sensors instead of your OEM ones.. I haven't read anywhere that these external sensors can be integrated into a CAR's computer, but I doubt there'd be interference with you using TST (or other) valve-stem sensors to monitor your Honda's tire pressure from the driver's seat of your RV. In fact... if there's an issue, you might already see that issue because you already have the TST system in your RV. If you would have interference from the Honda's OEM sensors, wouldn't you already be seeing that?

In other words... the Honda can't really know that the TST sensors on you RV tires are "something I should ignore," but TST sensors that you twist onto the valve cap of the Honda are "something I should get confused about."

We have a 2013 CRV and use the TireTraker system which has the cap-type sensors.

Only problem is, you MUST remove the sensors before going through a car wash!!!!! The brushes can hang the sensors and break off the aluminum valve stem! Finding out cost me $248 !

Thanks you all for responding. I think Dan hit it on the head because the guy that told me that, saw the flow through valves on the coach. I have the smaller/lighter valves for the CRV, but he didn't see them when we had the conversation. I think I'll try them.

Be interesting to see if I"ll need a repeater to pick up the rear tires of the CRV.

2014 Honda CVR TPMS monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each wheel to determine if one or more tires are under inflated/Honda Owners Manual. Actual tire pressures are not being transmitted so I would think that other pressure monitors should not cause a problem.

Exactly Correct.....per owners manual. We run 507 non flow through and have had no problems. I mounted my receiver with the suction cup mount just in front of the drivers side sliding window when open, and below the line of sight for the side mirror. Don't even need a repeater for the toad.
