Winterize TPMS Valve Cps?

Just wondering what others due with their TPMS during cold winter storage. Pull the valve caps and remove batteries?

I just leave mine on and replace the batteries each year. Just don't want any surprises on the road.

I take the caps off while not using the RV or my toad. I store them in one of these and mark the bottom of the container (with a marker) with the position (LF, RF, RR, LR etc)

If the common TST brand, they can be left in place though I do remove mine. I remove the batteries but put new in every spring when the RV comes out of hibernation. The batteries will last several years but they are so cheap on eBay, just to make sure, they get renewed.

I leave them on only to keep debris out of the valve stems. I could put caps on but I always seem to lose them.

Great information, appreciate it. Always wondered how long those batteries might last.

Just as a note - the ones on my truck lasted 9 years when one died. The others a full 10 but new tires 'fixed' the others after 10
