TPMS

I am wanting to get a Tire Pressure Monitoring System for my new 5er. It is a 34 footer with two axels. I have replaced the chinabombs with new Goodyear G614's and now I want the TPMS. So I know all you out there will have some really good recommendations for a reliable TPMS and there are many brands, styles, etc. out there. I thank all of you in advance for taking time to help me with your advice. We have been on 4 short trips and now ready for longer ones.

Here's a good start.

They are running a sale too!

One quick tip. Using a TPMS is great but if your running for a period of time and have quick cool down (rain, etc.) and the pressure/temp drops, you'll get an alarm. Not to worry, you just need to be aware of cause and effect.

Good luck and a great investment.

TST 507 is a good choice. Many folks run it with no issues. You'll just need to find a place for the repeater. It needs 12 VDC.

Vote #2 for the TST unit, but I have a 34' Allegro Bay and I never installed the repeater and it works fine without it including picking up my toad sensors so you may or may not need the repeater (it comes with it so just try without it and if problems hook it up)

Great unit and includes temperature which is great for catching a problem such as sticky calipers etc.

Tst tpms

Any recommendations for anything other than TMS. I have had a 510 since 2017 & now they offer no support for it. Said they will give a 20% discount on a new system. Very generous!

X2 on the EEZTire system. We have it in our 2019 Montana fiver (and a Bullet before the Montana) and it has served us well.

I got my TST 507 from TechnoRV. It works well and I put the repeater in the front closet of my 5er. Wired to the closet light.

I have had a TST system since 2011. Over the years as we changed RVs I had to modify it a little, like add the number of sensors, etc. It has worked perfectly and we have been full time travelers the whole time except for 2 years of that.

The TST system has batteries the user can change, instead of some brands where you have to send the sensors back in for updates. Also, if you set your parameters correctly you won't ever get a false alarm like someone else initially stated.

IMHO it is the #1 piece of safety equipment every RVer should have.

TST

Hi all..
I have been running my 507's for about 3 years.. I have a 40 foot pusher and tow either my towed or a pontoon boat... Never have installed the repeater and have always had a solid signal... I have the newer model with the color screen.. Works terrific and wouldn't be without it..

I have had an EZ Tire for 3 years now. It keeps loosing signal to one of the tires every time I go. It may work for 10 minutes or 30. I shut it off and back on and it will do the same thing. This spring I put all new batteries in the sensors and that did not help. The batteries are a real pain to replace. The only contact info I am able to find is an email and I contacted them that way 6 weeks ago and have had no response as of yet. If I were to get another it would not be EZ tire. Evidently I just got a bad one as there are others that say they have had good luck with it. My coach is a 32 foot Winnebago.

I'd vote for the Pressure Pro. Ours uses our phone so one less thing for the cab. Note that the cap sensors are sealed so when the batteries eventually go they need to be replaced. PP is commercial grade equipment.
