Trying to decide on Tire Minder 65psi vs 199 psi

Needing a new tire pressure monitor for my 40' coach with tag towing a Jeep Wrangler. One system with 10 sensors (I'll have to order 2 additional sensors) is for valve stem pressure to 65 psi but my coach uses 85 to 110 psi.

The other system is for valve stem pressure to 199 psi but can those be used on my Wrangler with 32 psi? This system also has Blue Tooth which I have no interest in nor have any idea on how to use it, also is about $200 higher than the above system on 65 psi.

Trying to read all the options on the Tire Minder but the more I read the more questions I have and getting more confused. My old Pressure Pro is crapping out on me so rather get a new system than replace everything on the Pressure Pro.

Any suggestions, actual experience, or advice will be greatly appreciated.

If your information is correct about the systems you are evaluating, you certainly do no want a system that has a 65psi max capability. I use the Tire Minder i10 with 10 sensors on my RV and toad with capability to monitor pressures from from 0-199 psi. Works just fine. I'm not pushing one model vs another, but just make sure you buy a system that can handle the inflations you use on your tires. Probably the best thing to do is just call them and speak with them about the various models they sell. I'm sure they will be very helpful for your full understanding.

Thanks, I guess that will be my only approach to this matter as much as I hate talking to a salesman over the phone. They seem to always hit me with a statement or question I wasn't prepared for and I don't think on my feet very well.
I just don't want the AlAS model TM79FR that they show is for 199 psi cause it includes Blue Tooth at a much higher price.

Guess I’m not understanding the issue. If the 1 system only goes to 65, but your rv is 85 on up, I dont see that system as an option

Yeah I agree you want the big boy...you'd be surprised how much hot tires pressurize. Even my trailer tires will go from 65 cold to 75 on a hot day.

Agree. The TireMinder i10 would do everything the OP wants to do. The 10 tire kit is $480 on Amazon.

I'm just trying to find out if there is a system that goes to 199 psi without including the Blue Tooth, which I have no use for nor any idea how it works and adds about $200 to the price. etrailer has several systems but can't tell from their descriptions which one I need. Maybe a phone call will settle it. Thank you.

There is only one that I know of that uses Bluetooth to your phone. The rest are more "traditional" TPMS systems. They list them all on their website with good explanations of them all.

Tst 507

Just installed the TST 507, 10 tire on my Renegade. Works great, easy install and comes with a repeater. During my 30 day trip, woke up one morning turned on the system and it warned me one of my tires, an inner dual, had gone from 100 pounds down to 60 over night, due to large nail. Had it not been for the TPMS, I would have lost that tire going down the road.

I can't believe what they charge for these systems. I bought a Chinese one from Amazon-- with six sensors-- for a little over $100 three years ago. I have no experience with the more expensive systems, so perhaps they work better, and they do seem to have nicer displays, but the system I use has worked fine for me so far. It takes a few minutes in the morning for all the sensors to update, but it notifies me immediately of a loss of pressure.

I have used a Tireminder TM77 for many years now. 6 sensors on the RV monitoring the 90 psi on those tires and 4 sensors on the Jeep Rubicon with pressures of 37 each. The TM77 reads all pressures just fine and I am very happy with the unit.

According to the Question/Answer section by experts on eTrailer the i10 unit is for 65 psi and if higher valve stem pressure is desired the suggested unit is A1AS for up to 199 psi, an upgrade to i10, and includes a Blue Tooth.

Tire Minder.com doesn't give much detailed information which still leaves me pulling what hair I do have.

Recently ordered a propane detector for my motorhome from eTrailer and got real good service and information from them.
Do I dare trust them about which Tire Minder will monitor up to 199 psi when other sites say the i10 is the correct unit.

Have been using EEZ RV Tire TPMS, on motorhome & toad for many years ... does have old display (a little hard to read, not bright enough). They now have a better colour display model.
When RV is in outside storage, do disconnect display sensor (USB) in motorhome & remove from tires to save on battery life; sensors have removeable batteries. Did not add any flow thru or locking devices.
Excellent customer service.
