If your question is directed at me it's from Minder Research. Lots of good votes for TST monitor system too. IMHO, getting one is more important than which one you get. The Minder needs a signal booster and I think the TST does not. The Minder reports temperature as well as pressure but I think TST does as well.

I had tread separation on all four of my Tomax Powerkings. Upgraded to 17.5 inch wheels and H rated tires from Trailertiresandwheels.com.so far so good.

I did the factory upgrade to G rated tires but spare tire in on a cheap 80 psi rim and e rated tire. I thought the upgrade would include the spare also

I put a G614 as a spare. On second thought I wish I had just kept the best E rated tire for a spare.
I may never need it and I don't rotate the spare.
I could have saved some money that way.

Inflate them to the max pressure and check the tires and the pressure everyday before departure , it takes only 5mn ;-)

Tire Pressure Monitor

Our kids want to buy my husband a pressure monitoring system for our not yet ordered Pinnacle RSQS..can someone please recommend which TST system is adequate...I'm guessing you can add additional sensors at a later date? Is the 4 sensor model a good starting point? Thanks!

Yes, I agree. Fill it to the max PSI on OEM tires.

The tire are sized for the load, and nothing more. Lower tire pressure, puts heat into the tire, which shortens their life.

I have the TST 507 system with standard non-flow through sensors. I originally bought the kit with 4 sensors for the trailer and after the first trip I ordered 4 more sensors for my truck. I leave the truck sensors on 24/7/365, but remove the trailer sensors when I am going to be at a site for longer than a few days. The sensors are turned off when pressure is removed so the batteries last longer. I always travel with spare batteries, 0-ring, and valve stem gaskets for the sensors. I can change a battery and both gaskets in minutes and only change one when the monitor alerts me to a low battery. Since my sensors are approaching 5 years old I also carry a spare set (2) of sensors. I am so used to having this system that I will not travel without it.

Would I buy this system again? You Bet!

My question is: do the sensors and monitoring system tell you the PSI of your tires while parked at a campsite? Or, do your tires have to be turning in order for you to know the air pressure in each one? If this system can provide accurate air pressure while static, then I would get one. Because I normally check air pressure in my trailer tires (and refill the air, if needed) before I hook it up and tow it home.

My TST indicates both. I turn it on before leaving or the day before and get a readout.
Only time I have to adjust is after large temp changes.
