EZ Tire TPMS
 
I did a search, but can't find the information I'm looking for and have not found an on-line manual for the system.

I watched a you tube video showing how to set the EZ Tire TPMS receiver for each axle and it showed setting the same pressure on all axles for the towed unit. This would work great for a trailer, but can you set each axle of the towed unit to a different value if you are pulling a car on a dolly? I run 50 PSI on my dolly tires and 40 PSI on the car we tow.

One other question, can you use these if you have one of those steel braided hose valve extenders?

Go EEZ RV PRODUCTS - RV And Outdoor Recreational Equipment, Eeztire Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems then click on downloads. The manual is there.
Great product. Will never own a mh and toad without it.

I use the system and tow a PT Cruiser on a dolly.

Like you I also typically ran the dolly tires higher than the car. I thought I did my homework but found I had not realized it expects the same parameters for all of the towed axles. ?? :mad:

My solution has been to run the car around 38 psi, the dolly about 42, and set the low limit for the alarm around 32. The PT Cruiser is a light car so the dolly could probably run lower without issue.

During use, because the display cycles on its own, it is easy to glance at it occasionally and see the pressures from each tire. It's just the alarms that are constrained on the towed section. Plus it has high loss alerts and slow leak alerts. I think those are effective even if the pressures have not dropped to the low limits. In any case, this is how I dealt with it.

The entire system was still cheaper than just getting the replacement pressure pro sensors due to non-replaceable batteries. So I gave my pressure pro system to son in law and went this route for user serviceable batteries. I like it better in general as well.

Not sure why the above website is not working correctly. Just search eezrv and then click downloads.

I read the instructions and it appears you can't set the towed vehicle axles for different pressures. Is there a system out there where you can do that?

I also didn't see where you tell the monitor what sensors are are on what axle.

Yeah it looks like all the axles have to be set up the same

The pressures are set for each position individually, monitored individually, and displayed individually.

Coding sensors to the unit for each position is very straightforward and easy either from comfort of couch, or on the unit.

The limit alarms for the towed items are the only things grouped as 1 set of limits.

As Rick (Crabb E) commented above, it is a great system. Having used pressure pro for years, and now using EZ Tire, I prefer the EZ Tire.

If having a common-set low limit alarm for both your car and dolly is a show stopper for you, then you may have to keep shopping.

TireMinder allows separate pressure settings for the dolly and toad.

Just purchased a EEZ rv system. Set each individual tire on my coach and toad. I have some coach tires set at 120# and some at 85# and the toad is set at 28#. No issues setting each tire. I have the model TM-515T22/SP. The EEZ doesn't know what tire the sensor is place on. It just shows a location.

I think you need to read through the manual again. I have my trailer tires set up differently than the coach tires. EEZ RV TPMS is a great system. I really like mine.

I think you guys are misunderstanding what I'm saying. From reading the manual, you can set the coach tires different from the toad, but all the toad tires have to be the same. I have coach tires, dolly tires and toad tires. From reading the instructions all toad tires are set to the same pressure by default. that would be okay if I was towing four down, but the dolly tire pressure is different than the tires on the car.

Here's what the manual says:

"Setting High Pressure Alarm Parameter - Tow Vehicle

9. Now all three axles should be flashing with the High Pressure showing
on the bottom of the screen. Press the + or – keys to make the
pressure scroll up and down. Once you reach the High Pressure setting
you desire press the SET button and release.
