I have used this one for years and found it quite reliable. Also they support the forum.

Never heard of the one and you are considering. That TST truck systems is a very popular one.

Not going to work:

"Pressure display range: 0-8Bar / 0-99psi "

99 psi isn't high enough.

Looks like passenger or pick-up truck system. Warning pressure too low.

I bought and use Tire Traker on my current and previous motorhome. It has a "Morning reset" feature that allows me to get AM readings without getting out of RV.

Not enough sensors. You want to do the toad also.

Do not waste your $200 on that TPMS. It will not provide you with the quality and reliability of proven TPMS systems that widely used by RVer's today.

I highly recommend the Tire SafeGuard TPMS for $279 which is a reliable 6 wheel RV system that can be expanded in the future by purchasing additional sensors or you can choose a complete 10 or 12 wheel system (depending on your specific setup with RV and Toad) at a slightly higher cost also available on Amazon.

Whatever you choose, do NOT purchase one made by Doran, it is JUNK!

I just bought the TST system, installing it today. The kicker with the toad is you really need metal valve stems. If you have stock rubber stems they won't support the sensors. So figure that expense into the price.

Stay away from the flow thru sensors, they are problematic with weak signals and moisutre leaks on their seals). TST replaced my flow thrus with standard caps, and now fine. Have standard rubber valve stems on toad and dolly, not an issue. TST is a great company to do business with, EXCELLENT customer service.

I purchased the tire safeguard last month over the tst system, based on not needing a repeater. It has already paid for itself. I would highly recommend either of them. The tire safeguard works on rubber valve stems. By a good one, it will pay for itself. Good luck.

TST suggested my daughter send her flow thru system back for a free exchange to the 507 cap system rather than use them with her valve stems when she was ordering two more after going from a single axle TT to tandem axle.

Now I'll mention her system was two years old but never used, now how's that for customer service they even set the system up for her before shipping.
