Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems?

Hi all,
I'm at the FMCA "Wanted in Wyoming" convention and I'd like to hear your thoughts. There are 3 systems being sold and discounted here: TST, TireTraker and Pressure Pros. I am leaning towards TST, I like the flow through valves, eas of battery change out, display and cost. Any comments on these or any other systems you may have. Hoping to purchase these today, last day of show. Sorry to be sending this out at the last minute.

I like the TST system even though I don't use it. Rig I now have come with the SmartTire system.

I have TST and it functions well. Your points are all accurate. If you donít already have them get metal stems installed.

I've had the Tiretraker and I now have the TST. I prefer the TST for it's ease of use and reliability. It also will read out the tire pressures and temps while cold, i.e. you don't have to drive twenty minutes down the road to activate the sensors. I don't see the need for the flow-thru sensors. They are just extra weight on the valve stems and I don't have to add air to my tires very often.
Just one person's opinion.

I have been using the TST system on my MH and toad for 9 years. Other than batteries everything has been great. It works like it's supposed to.
Just changed to the new color monitor and it is wonderful. Even with the sun shining directly on it you can still read the display.

I had a different tire pressure monitoring system and on every trip I would get false alarms. I did a quick web search and I didn't find it so I assume that they are out of business or they have changed their name.

I switched to TST about ten years ago and found it to be very reliable. I added a signal repeater to my system because of tire sensor signals not making it to the control module. It has worked fine since.

My gray scale control module is working fine but I have scratched the screen so I'm thinking about a color replacement control module for my Christmas wish list.

TST has been very helpful and they are very responsive when I call with a problem.

Safe travels. JD

I concur on the TST, but I would not get the flow through sensors. It's just another possibility of a leak and I find I rarely have to take mine off to adjust pressure. I did remove the theft proof shell which makes them easier to take on and off.

Ditto on TST, easy to air tires and replace batteries.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I like the cap type sensors so there's no possibility of air leaks!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

TireTraker 10 sensors & booster works great on our Diesel Pusher and toad.

I have the display velcroed to the dash and can see the tire pressures and temperatures before I start up and check them whenever I want rolling down the road.

It also has several audible alarms so you donít even have to look at the screen. Rapid pressure loss alarm, high temperature alarm, etc make a loud noise that will get your attention.

I purchased a TST signal repeater at Camping World in their sale area at a very reasonable price. I bought it because my rear TPMS sensors would drop out from time to time. The signal repeater didn't solve my problem so I called TST. They said that the repeater would not work with my system. TST mailed me the correct repeater and a I sent TST the repeater that I purchased at Camping World.

This was over nine years ago just after I installed my TST TPMS. I haven't had a problem since.

TST has always been very responsive if I called with problems or questions.

Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems?

Just to add a little bit on TST. What other company would give you a personal cell phone # and actually answer it when you call.

I bought the color monitor a few months back, call Mike on a Sunday afternoon and he spent an hour with me helping to set up the entire system. Thatís service.
