Shorty,
Tire Minder gets good reviews and seemed to have the features that I wanted (plus user replaceable batteries). I have experienced a few false alarms and recently added the signal booster (that now comes standard) and I'm hoping that will cure the false alarms. I like being able to scroll through the tires and see the pressure and temperature of each. Before leaving the curb I can check the "cold" pressures from the cab and can take a quick look while underway.
I'm sure the major brands are all good (I would like the "flow-thru" sensors) but TM is the one I picked.

RedHorse1, Does the system require the metal type valve stems or will it work on the rubber valve stems. As I type this, I'm not sure which type my camper has. Old age I guess, can't remember "stuff"

Shorty,
I spoke with them directly about that and was told that rubber was OK, which is what I have. They are short stems so I don't expect them to flex much. If you have metal stems they will exchange the sensors for ones to match the metal if needed (apparently there are steel and aluminum stems).
They've been really nice folks to deal with - we've spoken 3 times and exchanged a couple of emails.

I ordered the TST 507 from Tweety's. They did give me a discount for mentioning JOF.

How much did you pay Sailor if you don't mind me asking? Best price I could get was $229 @ Vulcan Tire for 4 tires, non flow through.
