Also if this is the case which brand(s) are preferred, and why?

Thanks and my apologies if I missed this aspect of this topic in earlier discussions.

I have the RVi sensors and called them to get the batteries replaced (must be sent back, not user serviceable) and they quoted me $170 to $200 for 12 sensors, I don't remember the exact figure. The price is reasonable per sensor but they must go back.

The main reason I want to change my batteries on the road, no down time.

My concern is that on my rear dualies the outer tire stem is aimed back through one of the holes. It is a PIA to even check the pressure. I think they did it in case I need to swap the inner for the outer. I will never do this as my outer is aluminum and my inner is steel. I have considered when I change my tires I will have them put a short straight stem on it.

As far as I know all Dual Rear Wheels, the outer Stem always points towards the inside. That is why they make the Dual Foot Tire Gauge and Air Chuck. Working on Trucks in the early 70s they all came with the stems pointing that way and my 1995 MH also has the stems in. Not sure about Pick-up dual rear wheel stems. I just attached my TST sensors on the stem of the outer tire and the stem extensions of my inner rear tires and have no issues.

I went to a local tire dealer and asked them to rotate my outer valve stems 90 degrees. Then I put my TST sensor on the valve stem and I can get to them to add air no problem.

Neither of my Newmar MHs had the valve stem pointing toward the driveshaft. Both my Canyon Star (F53 chassis) and Ventana (Spartan chassis) have the inner wheel and outer stem facing out. Iíve only ever needed a regular chuck on them.

Yeah both mine point out 180* from each other. Very convenient for externals....

So......what did I do?

Went with EEZtire more because of the dimensions of the display than anything, and external sensors. Also went with anti-theft sensors, not for the anti-theft feature but because of the size and I don’t need flow-thru. My tires don’t loose any pressure between checks.

If I get internals when I get tires I’ll put these sensors on the toad. So all is well - got it done for under $400, Ca sales tax and shipping included, and I don’t have to wait til I get new tires, which is probably a good thing since I am now in the last year of the service life (as defined by me) of these tires.

I really appreciate all the opinions, experiences, ideas, comments, etc. I was pretty well set on internals and waiting till I buy new tires, but I think this is a better decision and this thread/forum changed my mind.

So thank you one and all. And keep those ideas and preferences coming - I enjoying hearing all the different views and experiences.

Life is good......

Internal are more expensive. If batteries fail then it will cost me
But less hassle than stem cap sensors.

Either way will work. If u can afford internal I think their less hassle

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

I think I get it....
