Looking to add an RV Tire Pressure Monitor System

Any recommendations, reviews, opinions?
Amazon lists many from $250 - $500.

This is the one I have. http://tsttruck.com/
I am completely happy with it. Since I bought mine 3 years ago they have come out with other models such as replaceable batteries and flow thru sensors.

My RV510 system has saved my bacon several times. I would not feel safe without it. I have 8 sensors. One on every tire.

I purchased the TST TPMS system last year for my HTT. 4 Sensors...all worked great, no drop out and I definitely felt more confident knowing I could see the tire temps/pressures.

Here are two other threads discussing TPMS.

I have the TST 507 system with 8 sensors as well. I love it, and it provides peace of mind and safety.

I did have a problem where the trailer sensors would eventually drop out on a long tow. I purchased the repeater to install on the front of the trailer, but i have not towed since getting the repeater. I really like that TST has the option to have a repeater.

Also remember that you want metal valve stems for mounting the sensors. A trip to Discount Tire and about $100 fixed this for me. I don't know if it was strictly required, but I paid a bit extra to rebalance the tires after installing the sensors.

I have the Tire Minder and have been pleased with it. User replaceable batteries, stem mount. It not only reports pressure but temperature as well. Flow-thru sensors would be a nice addition but I exist without it. I have short-ish rubber stems and have no problems.
It now comes with a signal repeater (booster) that I bought after the fact and it improves the signal hugely! I've made a couple of support calls to them and they've been very helpful. I think the same unit is available from other sources under a different brand (I think).

"Also remember that you want metal valve stems for mounting the sensors" OR "I have short-ish rubber stems and have no problems".


Either way, I'm unaware of this; clarification please?

It may depend on the type of sensor and how often/far you drive the trailer, etc. In the case of the TST sensors, they are somewhat heavy because they include a theft prevention outer shell. You can take this shell off to shave weight, but I like the idea of making the sensors harder to steal. Someone actually tried pulling mine not noticing that my wife was observing from in my truck at the time. The sensors are about $50 a piece.

Imagine a weight at the end of the rubber valve stem over the course of a long, bouncy ride. That is not the kind of stress a rubber valve stem is designed for. I have seen plenty of posts from people that use the system with rubber valve stems, but I would not suggest it. In one post, I saw a black ring on the wheel from the sensor bouncing around and rubbing on the wheel. That does not inspire confidence in long-term reliability.
