Tire Pressure Monitor Systems

We have a 2015 View Winnebago motor home and are considering installing Tire Pressure Monitor System. I've done some checking and their are a lot out there. One brad EEZ TPM56 Real time - 6 (for 6 tires) had some good reviews. Also saw Schrader and Lippert Tire Linc I thought the EEZ would be the best since it has a little display that either fits on the dash or window. I'd rather not have one that you need a mobile phone. Any feedback out there?

I've used the TST 507 system for six years and it has worked flawlessly. You will get a variety of opinions on which is best so here's a ton of reading for you since this subject comes up all the time.

I've had a TST 507 for 11 years and I love it. It performs the way I want it to. It has a nice screen which is easy to read (no squinting). I upgraded to the color monitor 2 years ago and it is nice. It's a little more pricey but I think that the product coupled with excellent CS is worth the extras money.

A heads up!

Whichever one you purchase, take note.(I have TST 507 flow-thru system) Today I had a flat tire on the MH, didn't know until I raised the jacks. After investigation the reason for the flat I discovered the valve core was not tight in the TPMS sender unit. Tightened the core, aired up the tire and it is not leaking. I was glad I was home instead of on the road.

I then tested all the other TPMS valve cores and every one took a bit of tightening. I then tested the ones on the truck we tow, the rears were both loose but since they are low pressure the valve caps had prevented leaking.

I bought the TireTraker system for the following reasons:

1. Lowest cost at the time for a system with 10 sensors and a repeater.

2. User-replaceable low-cost sensor batteries.

3. Easy to program and use.

4. Lifetime warranty

5. Good customer support.

6. Cap-type sensors to prevent possible air loss.

Thank you everyone for your feedback, it's overwhelming with so many TPMS to choose from. This has helped make our decision. We are looking at either the EEZ TMPS or the T507. They both seem to be both reliable. Love this these blogs.

With the TST 507 or EEZ which do you recommend, metal or rubber value stems?

It seems by reading you can use either stem on either product.

I have the TST system and recommend it also.

As far as the sensor type goes, are you asking about in-line/flow-through versus cap? If so, the difference between them is that if you need to add air to your tires, you have to remove the cap-type sensor entirely. If you have an in-line/flow-through sensor, you can fill up "through" the sensor, without removing it.

Because the flow-through sensor style is bigger and heavier, you must have metal valve stems to use it. But that is a good idea anyway. I would recommend going to metal stems even if you opt for the cap-type sensor. So I wouldn't let the type of valve stems you have make the decision for you.

But if you did, in fact, mean the actual material that the sensors are made of, my car's mechanic does not like metal caps. He thinks they can react with stuff and corrode. He replaced all my BMW's OEM metal caps with rubber ones. I don't know; those metal caps had held up just fine for nearly 8 years without corroding. But that's what he said, and I'd lost one cap anyway. Maybe he only had rubber caps and felt he needed an excuse to justify replacing all four. (He didn't charge me for them, so I really only care that they match, which they do.) So take that for whatever it's worth.

If you use the EEZ system, with the non flow thru sensors, you can discard the anti theft housing and then they're no harder then any valve cap to remove to add air.....and no tool required....they really don't weigh much anyway......and the sensor batteries are easy to change....

I have the EEZ and it has worked great for 5 years without any problems. Easy to program and the batteries are easy to replace.
