Considering Tire Pressure Monitoring System

We tow a Jeep Wrangler behind our Greyhawk 31SS. I've been looking at several TPMS brands and am a little hesitant to jump. I'll probably go for one that includes enough sensors to cover all the wheels on the Greyhawk and the Jeep. I need some input from all you folks who have a system before I make a final decision. Thanks.

My TST system can monitor pressure and temp on 22 tires. You purchase how many sending units you need.

I use the tireminder system. They also have multiple tire applications. The only issue that we had was the booster was needed on both the trailer we had as well as the 5th wheel we have now. The right rear tire was very slow to register without the booster. With the booster, it works great. They also give you batteries for 7 years. Like TST, you can add more or less units as needed. I bought it in 2010. The folks that sell and service are very helpful.

X2 except we have been fine without the booster. Wouldn't leave home without them.

Agree that a working TPMS is important; when I had first installed my TST system, it detected a slow leak in a brand new tire and gave me time to pull off in a safe area and put on the spare.

The leaky tire tread had been punctured by a 1/4 x 20 1" long bolt and could be repaired. Saved me much time and aggravation and possibly damage to my trailer caused by a disintegrating tire.

Another tireminder vote. The booster is now included in the kit I think. I had 2 tire failures in abt 75 mi on the last trip. The TM woke up abt a second after the first failure threw 1/3 of the tread in one piece. The second failure was a big hole and TM told me I had a flat. No damage to the wheel wells! It also monitors the temperatures. It's amazing how much damage a disintegrating tire can do (ask my neighbor).
Loads of folks cover 10's of thousands of miles without but as for me and my family, we trust in the Lord and keep an eye on the instruments.

2x on TST. .. outstanding customer service and technical support. Order directly from them and get enhanced warranty. Oh yes, outstanding customer service -- by that I mean, thT I hand an issues just before a trip and they advanced me the replacemet part overnight and I returned the defective part.

TST 507 system for 4 years now. You replace your own batteries vs sending the sensors in.

On the tireminder, you don't send the sensors in. You send in the batteries and they replace them.
