Maybe a dumb question, something I specialize in. If you're not pulling the toad does the display ask you about it once or anoy you with constant "hey, where's the TOAD"?

The only reason I can think of is a leak where the tires get low enough to cause the wheel baskets to get loose but since they aren't on the road I wouldn't expect that to happen.
Being more concerned about what a tire might pick up while rolling down the road to cause the tire to go flat I would not run them on the front tires that are on the dolly.

Buying TPMS - What are top two to consider

Pressure settings may be different from the toad tires and the dolly tires you'll just need to come up with a parameter your happy with. That group of 4 tires will have their own parameters, however you will still have independent psi readings for each.

It does until you tell it, "Hey, we didn't bring the TOAD this time"! J/K, it is easy to turn off (and back on) the toad readings at the readout so this doesn't occur.

I ran a TST system for almost a year and had so many problems that I returned the unit. I have now run a Tire Traker system for several years and it has worked very well. I understand the Tire Minder is the same system as Tire Traker. As someone mentioned, Tire Tracker sometimes does not give me a new reading immediately on starting out if nothing has significantly changed. When I am not towing I see a "no signal" indication for those "missing" sensors, but no annoying alarms, etc. I like the smaller, lighter, replaceable battery sensors that Tire Traker has.

Thanks John and Paul, (no Ringo and George?) I hoped that would be the case. I too like the Tire Tracker system and plan to buy it for my coach. I also like the lifetime guarantee!

FWIW I would not use a TPMS on any wheel without metal valve stems, flow through or otherwise, but especially flow through. That may be my own hyper-tendencies about tires and pressures, but I think adding anything to a rubber stem is a bad idea. Rotational forces can be very large, and having a tire shop fit metal stems is cheap insurance.

It does take my TST system a few minutes to initialize and "find" all the tires, but it always does and I like the display. Easy to read and understand from the driver's seat with just a glance.

I still say checking pressures with a quality, verified manual gauge is the best method, and then use your TPMS for monitoring changes not absolute pressures. It's the change that will bite you.

  1. I have been happy with my EEZTIRE systems.
  2. I do not have any experience with their customer service because the systems have been trouble-free
  3. I do not "double-check" with manual pressure gauges. If I wanted to do that I wouldn't spend ~$300 on a tire pressure system.

With the Tireminder it will beep once an hour to say the trailer is not there. Just a beep and then it is quiet.

I also have the EEZ and am very happy with the product and the service.

I've only had this coach about a month. It came with the Pressure Pro. Out of 6 sensors, 4 were dead. Of the two that worked, one caused my tire to go from 98 lbs to 45 lbs in a day. I took the entire system off and will be using manual checks for the time being.

I contacted my local Pressure Pro dealer, and he said he only sells new, complete systems and will not perform the sensor exchange. These have batteries that are non-replaceable. New sensors are $50 each, but there's supposed to be a discount when you are replacing them. $500 to replace batteries (RV plus trailer or Toad) is pretty steep.

You can purchase a brand new 10 wheel Tire SafeGuard TPMS for $479 that comes with replaceable batteries and it works right out of the box with no need to call customer service unless you have a defective sensor.

Exactly. That's why I went ahead and took the Pressure Pro off my dash.

We have been using EEZTire for about a year. No issues and it came with a extender which I put in the closet and tapped into the closet light for power. Display is large enough to read easily. Batteries are replaceable and should last about three years. Sections can be turned off when not towing.
