TPMS systems

I am about to buy new tires for my RV and would like to install TPMS sensors inside the tires as are done with most newer cars. Does anyone know if these sensors will work with aftermarket receivers? They seem to work at the same RF frequencies.

I have 3 questions.



1) Are you talking about chassis manufacturer TPMS sensors, such as Freightliner, or some aftermarket type?



2) Why would you be replacing tires on a 2021 model coach?


3) What's wrong with the valve stem screw on aftermarket TPMS systems that are readily available?

1) I am talking about aftermarket types frequently used in cars but I imagine same or similar technology would apply to non factory equipped truck or RV chassis.



2) I don't like the brand that is on the RV.


3) I prefer those installed on the inside of the wheel. Don't like the hassle of removing the screw on's to check tire pressure.

You have 3 options:

1. Ask the TPMS manufacturer if they if these sensors will work with aftermarket receivers and go with their recommendation. If yes, you are on to option 2, and if not then option 3.

2. Buy and install the sensors and purchase an aftermarket receiver to see if it works. If it does not then you are on the option 3.

3. Buy and install sensor manufacture's receiver.

What is the need to remove the sensor to check the pressure? I like checking the pressure with the monitor on the dash. If you want more convenience to add pressure, get the flow thru sensor.

Ken, I bought the internal sensors from TST, they will work fine with the color TST monitor that I have. I have not had them installed yet, but I have talked to the Tire shop that I purchased my Toyo's from. The installer said that he could installed them but if you have to replace the tire to let the person doing the tire replace know that you have internal sensors installed on the rim.

You realize you don't have to remove the sensor to check the pressure, that is what the sensor is doing. To check the pressure, you just look at the display. You do this every morning in the cab of your rig wearing your jammies with a hot cup of coffee in your hand. If any adjustment is needed, then you remove the sensor like you remove a valve cap. My TST unit also checks the pressures on my toad or trailer, again, from my cab while I'm in my jammies with a cup of coffee in my hand and a bad case of bed-head. Checking all my pressures takes about 30 seconds.

TPMS Systems

The valve stem on my Ford inside dual tire broke with the OEM TPMS. I was told by La Mesa RV and a local tire store this is common on my 2021 Ford Transit. They installed new long valve stems but without a inside TPMS. I want a TPMS so I tried the screw on type. It turns out that the diameter of the screw on sensors are too big and hit the rim next to the inside stem. I therefore need a TPMS with an inside sensor so this won’t be a problem. I had them remove my other 3 rear sensors since the breaking valve stems cause a flat tire and the front ones don’t appear to be a problem.

I second the TST internals, have been using them for three years with no issues. The battery life is “5 years” so we’ll see whether I need to get valve stem models in 2024.

I went with internals as there is no leak path which in theory can happen with the external screw ons.

We have a 2015 37 pa red and purchased an rvi tpms and was never happy with it. Seemed like the 10 threaded on steams always had 1 or 2 that never gave correct reading, and in order to replace the batteries you had to buy a new set. Thier are othe types that batteries are a lift time warranty. Wish i new that in advance.

TST has an internal system.
