They are well documented in many threads here on JOF. I have the TST (Truck system technologies) version. It has one monitor and can monitor 22 tires.

I have all tires on my truck and 5th wheel on it. You may need the optional repeater for adding the boat tires due to the distance but many use it successfully.

There are others that are also well suited to monitoring and I'm sure you will hear from them.

click on the link in my sig to Jayco owners forum custom google search and enter TPMS and it will give you many threads on the subject on JOF.

I also have the TST (507)

Mine says it can have up to 24 monitors at once. And you can set multiple trucks up as well as multiple trailers.

It came with a booster/repeater but have not needed it.

Good system!

Just out of curiosity I have about 40 ft from the dashboard of my truck to the wheels on the camper. Will the TST system work that far without a booster?

My trailer rear axle is just about 41í from my dash. I did not need the booster. It comes with it so if you need it you have it.

It does take a minute or two for all the sensors to connect on startup. It runs for days on a full charge. You donít need to plug it in on the dash. I usually turn it on as I near completing hook up and it has all sensors reading.

Do the sensors throw the wheels out of balance? Even a small lead weight on a tire can change the balancing of a tire.

TST from TechnoRV https://www.technorv.com/tst-cap-sys...to-12-sensors/

I only put them on when towing. You can move them to your boat. Unless you are double towing then yes you will need more.
I've been using them for a long time on 4 different sets of tires with no balance problems.

So far has only had to save me one time.

I called TST with this question. They said they were unaware of any balance issues. The sensors weigh grams.

I have not noticed any balance issues but probably wouldnít unless it was severe.

My TPMS is from Minder Research and has alerted me to 2 tire failures (the dreaded Tow Max) and I wouldn’t travel without it. I haven’t measured the distance from dash to tires but I need the booster. I’ve not noticed any issues with tire balance. I have metal valve stems and feel they’re a good idea but probably not mandatory.

That was my next question. My valve stems are rubber at the bottom, then all brass from there and I made sure they're rated to 80 psi. They seem pretty stout but I don't want the sensors to actually cause a blowout due to the forces of rotation/wear on a non metal valve stem.

Anybody have any thoughts on this system? Seems like a good price.

What sensors are the best to have? I have not camped in any high theft areas so just the standard sensors would probable work ok or would you get the ones that you can air the tire with. I will have DRW on the TV.

Thanks

I have been running the tire minder for 2 years. It can accept up to 22 sensors. Mine came with the booster so my connection is never in question. The transmitters weigh in grams so there’s never been an out of balance issues and yes, I run them on the rubber valve stems. Have not had an issue so far but I do check their condition periodically. The only warning I have received so far was for a loss of signal from a low sensor battery. The in-cab unit lasts a long time on a battery charge. Tire minder will also send you sensor batteries for free. When we first bought our camper this forum touted TPMS and I would never travel without it, thanks to this forum.

I have this unit, over two years now. Works great. I have a 355w, which is 41' long and do not need a booster.

Nashville I have heard of rubber valve stems failing on a trailer that has TPMS. I switched my trailer over to Steel valve stems to now worry about that issue. My dash to trailer tires is over 40' I have a TireMinder A1A system which comes with a booster that they recommend mounting towards the back of your RV. Requires a 12v connection. Mine works like a champ. Very happy with it. So easy to program. Takes just minutes to set up.

I am not impressed with the Tire Minder system. I installed it on my F450 (6) and trailer (4). The baseline pressure is not adjustable to calibrate the system and the sensors all read wrong. This doesnít prevent it from alerting to a leak but it would be easy to update the app to do this. I had one sensor fail early on. Found the cheap plastic cap cracked. They sent me a replacement for free so that was good. Then I had two others sensors stop reporting multiple occasions on trips (I have the range booster installed). After changing the batteries they still continued to fail so I replaced them. Now another reports zero pressure 45 minutes after we start driving like clockwork every time. The manual also says it can take up to 20 minutes of driving for the sensor to start reporting correctly.

Looking for another system but after spending a lot of money on this I have a sour taste in my mouth.

If it works great.

Not all of us can afford a $400 tire checker.
