TPMS Recommendations?

Planning for our new 23RLSW, and really thinking about adding a TPMS since we're planning several longer trips during the coming year. Looked in general at several, tentatively thinking about the Doran 360RV4. Any reasons not to go there, or a better recommendation in that same price range (or lower)? I'd rather not have to replace the valve stems with metal if it's not necessary.

Thanks!

Roger

Only one I have ever had is the TST RV-510 system. It works like a dream without needing a signal booster for the far tires.

I would not have one without metal valve stems no matter the brand or what the manufacturer says. If you have any weight rotating on that stem it will be a potential problem that I want to avoid.

I've been using the TST RV-507 system for a couple of years. I like that the it's a flow through system (don't have to take the sensor off to air the tires) and I can change the batteries myself. Amazon has the 6 sensor system for around $310.

The TST's are super popular and get great reviews. I went with a system from Minder Research. I've had 2 tire failures and it warned me of both before any damage was done. I have rubber stems and have no problems. The TM will probably need a signal booster but I believe the kit comes with it. TM also has user replaceable batteries in the sensors. I think the TST doesn't need a booster. Both report pressure and temperature.
I don't think you'd be sorry with either.

I have the TST 507 and it's been great. Use it with the OEM rubber valve stems and have never had an issue with pressure loss

TST 507 8 sensor system here. No booster needed in my application. User replaceable batteries are nice. When I was getting ready for my most recent trip (I arrived at Ft. Wilderness yesterday for a week from my home base) I installed the 4 sensors on my 5'er a couple of days early. The next morning one battery showed low so I changed it.

Great system.

I just purchased a system from TireMinder. They have a sale on now at their website. I only needed a system for the RV with a booster. It was $189.00. They had it went to me in less than a week.

Rob, are you using the flow-through sensors with replaceable batteries? TST looks like it's more widely used than the Doran, but I was concerned about the mass of the the sensor on the existing valve stems. No problems there for you?

Thanks!

Roger

I don't see the resistance to metal valve stems. Once changed over, they last as long as the rim and eliminate any possibility of a stress leak on the rubber.

TST suggests they be added. I didn't and had one start leaking after a few months. Changed them all out and 4 years later no problems.

The 510 sensors may be a little heaver than the 507 sensors. Not sure but the weights are listed on their website.
