Tpms

I'm looking for input on TPMS I have a tt and do not need one that monitors more than 5 tires. I have done some research on the internet but it confuses me some what. I would like input from actual users if possible. My goal is to have a TPMS before we hit the road this spring. I have researched on this forum but the information on TPMS is kind of scattered, no fault of anybody.
Regards
Bob

OK here is a nickles worth of free advise. I have the EZEE system on my Precept and monitor 10 tires. However, almost ever brand has different size kits. All you want is four, so the cost will be less. I found this system to be easy to understand and easy to put on and take off. I remove it each time I store the motorhome for more than a month. I also remove it from my dingy vehicle when not towing it. I would certainly recommend it. But, ask five people and you'll get at least 3 different answers. Good luck

Bob

I also have the Eeze. It is expandable to something like 28 tires. You can show the tow and towed vehicles. It is easy to use and set up.
The only down side I have found is that when I opened the box I had a bad sensor. Usually not a huge deal, right? They want me to pay for shipping of the bad part back to them. Yeah, it's only $6 but it was bad out of the box. /soapbox

My guess is if one does not like his TPMS he would not be bragging about it. It's to important to go the inexpensive route.

Mine is made by TST Technologies.
Basic is 4 sensors but it can handle 24. They have a number of choices. Mine is the older RV510 with non user changeable sensor batteries . My first set of sensors lasted 5 years.

Tpms

I have the Tiretrakker & it works OK but if I was buying today I would look at the others - having to go thru 20 screens to look at 10 tires is crazy

TST 507SE. I have factory TPMS on my tow vehicle so I use 4 sensors for my 5er. Replaceable sensor batteries last 1 year. Works as designed and gives me peace of mind.

I too,have the TST 507 with 5 pass-through sensors( 4 on the ground and one on the spare) Thus for, it has done the job. I've had it several years and have yet to replace the batteries but plan to do so before next season.

I've got TireMinder. Their support is excellent, getting back to me whenever I have a question. The only exception was when they were locking things down and evacuating for Hurricane Irma. But even then, they called, explained what was happening and called me a few days later to help with a question I had. Some of the best customer service I've had in years.

They also will ship you batteries for the sensors at no charge for life on request.

TireMinder and TST seem to be the most popular. I have a TM and think it’s great. Like Norty says, it’s too important to go cheap on. Same thing with a surge suppressor or EMS.
