Yes. TST here.

Not only the safety aspect but the convenience as well of being able to check your tire pressure from an easy chair. I was without one for many years. After getting one realized I should have done it way earlier.

Interesting...I was just researching it when this post appeared. Can anyone recommend a particular brand? Flow through or no flow through??

If you do not want a flow thru model this is the best bang for the buck I have found. Open link and select "view e-bay web site"

I'll see if I can find them locally and install them Monday after I get my new tires.

I believe they are a must, I read several posts where the TMS alarmed and prevented a catastrophe, plus the roadside downtime. You will get a lot of opinions on brand favorites making it hard to choose so I suggest read all you can to make your choice. I like the Tire-SafeGuard - Products .

X2 for us - we have flow through.

Not suggesting others aren't as good; the key is to get something. We've had no issues with the flow through al though I think I have seen that a few others have not cared for them.

We also had no issue with installing them. Again I had seen that some folks found an issue with enough room around the valve stem.

There is also a "T valve" that allows filling air without removing your non-flowthrough sensors. TPMS, TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEMS - T-VALVES, VALVES TPMS ADAPTERS

I have the TireTech On Ė TP7002 system TomTall posted on EBAY. I have used it for 3 years and still have not replaced the batteries. I will have to buy 2 more senders, as my new Aspire has 2 more tires!!! I also have them on my Jeep. I see no need for a pass through. You remove it just like removing a cap if you need to air up. A pass through is just another place to leak air IMHO!!

I suppose I will give a semi-cryptic answer...

WHY NOT?

I really haven't heard a cogent argument against TPMSs.

Now, that being said keep in mind that they are a supplement to regular tire inspection by the owner. There is nothing wrong with using a temp gun to check tires during stops and thumping them if it makes you feel good.

They are not perfect but provide good tread information. My TPMS seems to read about 2 PSI low compared to my high quality tire pressure gauge. That isn't a big deal I just know that and work with it. I also can see that all tires are seeing higher pressure as they warm up. On a really hot, sunny day I can even see a slight increase in tire temps on the sunny side of the coach. Most important is that the system has been very fast to detect a quick leak. Once had one due to a valve stem extension that wasn't seated correctly and the system warned me immediately.

I also suggest TPMS for the toad. You will not feel the tires going flat on your toad. BTW...you will also know what side your exhaust is if it comes out the back side because the toad tire behind the exhaust will run 10-15* hotter than the rest.

Why used? I can say that the customer service from TST is OUTSTANDING and well worth the direct purchase of a new system.

Well...been there, done that, got the pass throughs.

Now, I am speaking specifically about the TST brand and frankly, I didn't like using the little tool needed to remove the [edit for clarity] non-pass throughs. I also like the ability to change batteries on the pass through version.

YMMV.
