Tire Pressure systems

Wondering what people think about them. Opinions on which ones are real good, also not so good. Peoples experience with them. Wife and I are going to keep our trailer for a long time. Just want to be safe going down the road. Was thinking about some for the trailer and the truck. Later Ernie

I am using the TST system on my TT. http://www.tsttruck.com/Product_List.html
Have about 5000 miles on it one issue. One sensor was bad and they sent me a new one within a week. Great customer service.

I don't have a system except the old "eyeball", but I do use nitrogen in all my tires( cars, tv,& tt) and it seems to do as advertised, pressures do not change due to heat or cold which air will not do

Coming from a guy who works behind a tire sales counter most of his life, the systems work exactly as they're desinged to. If a tire goes low (or flat), the system tells you- if all your tires end up at different pressures, the system tells you- If you don't check your tire pressure ever (and your tires will eventually go low), the system will tell you.


All this technology can't replace five minutes and a good tire gauge.

I would agree that pressure checks need to made before a trip and regular checks and inspection. But I like the real time monitoring of a TPMS system. If I was not tapped out at the present, I would be getting one.

I like them a lot, it is just the price that gets me. I look at it and say...well if I am going to do the 4 TT tires then I might as well also do the 4 TV tires....then I look at the price tag and just cant get myself to do it.

Been thinking about going with those caps that pop out a different color when the pressure gets low. I know they wont help in the event of a rapid deflation while traveling, but look pretty neat.

We have the PressurePro Tire Monitor System. Works off the valve caps for us all ten tires. Monitors all tires pressure works like a champ. You can go thru the tire pressures one at a time to check. If you loose presure or gain pressure an alarm sounds.

I also use an infered red heat gun for tire temp.

The PressurePro Tire Monitor System was a little pricy but worth the money.

Thanx everyone, I knew that they would not be cheep, but if you can catch a tire before it blows then maybe the trailer or T.V. will be spared some damage. I spend about two days before we go on a trip to go over the trailer and truck with a fine tooth comb, but things do happen. Just wondering, if a brake hangs up a little bit I wonder if the heat from the brake would show up on the monitor. I guess that I will have to call and talk to people about it. Keep the comments coming. Ernie

I saw a monitor that also alerted to temp, but dont remember which one.

My folks had a blowout on their airstream and didnt know it. Tore off the water heater door, a rear jack, and tore up the wheel well. It ended up being enough to do an insurance clam and a drive to the factory for repairs. Has made me really want one.

A surge protector and TPM are on my short list to get real soon. Both can save a lot of money in their respective uses.

My MIL had a stroke 3 months ago and we haven't been camping this year as we have spend 4 days on and 4 days off sitting with her in Jacksonville, Fl at a rehab center but when we get back going I will have them both.
