Still, if you follow TPMS threads, there is no doubt that TST is recommended more here on iRV2 than other brands.

FWIW, the poll is also skewed by the fact that the OP did not offer a choice for "Other" or "None"; thereby forcing readers to choose one of the five if they were interested in seeing the poll results.


I agree with this comment. I am a loyal TST 507 customer for the following reasons:

1. Their product is outstanding
2. Their customer service is so above and beyond that they create loyalty by how good they are.

I used a different TPMS before buying TST, product was just OK, and service was terrible. As for poll, call it what you want, if you read through several posts TST clearly wins on popularity because of my 2 points above.

You will find in most polls (TPMS, Tire Brands, RV Brands, etc) is what people own is the best. People don't want to admit that they own an inferior product or another product is best. I am happy with my TPMS and the service after the sale. I wasn't happy with my SurgeGuard and upgraded to what I think is a better product.

Just mu opinion, you are welcome to your own.

TPMS

I use TST. I had it on my Class C View and then moved it to my Class A. I found that the panel could not receive the tow car signals reliably with the longer MH. I just installed the booster TST has and everything seems to be working fine.

Here’s what you should be taking away from this “poll”.

1. Internet discussion board polls are not something you want to base buying decisions on. Never have been, never will be.

2. TST monitors this board. That is not a bad thing. Why don’t the others?

I went with EEZ after watching a Technomadia video. Chris said it would not display what he called STALE data like others. If a sensor quits working it will not display any reading at all. Others retain the last reading. He said others he had would display readings for his toad even though it was 30 miles away. If you were to lose a sensor you would have no way of knowing until you powered up again.

I have not installed my EEZ yet. Any thoughts?

It doesn’t bother me. I also know TST hangs out here. Had already decided on their product. Just need to gather the cash to make the purchase. Can’t ever seem to find a “deal”.

TST was my choice, read many reviews and studied all of them. I have had it a year now and it gives me such peace of mind as we travel. Customer service is the best too.

My point is that if the tire that had the bad sensor were to develop a problem you would not be warned because of the old stale reading.

YES!

And, PressurePro is a major player in TPMS. Why were they omitted from the poll?

So much for getting out the vote

Uh, thats a somewhat humorous statement considering that the forum takes paid advertisement as a funding source, as can be very easily seen. I would say that by definition it is part of a marketing effort.
