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.
Don't know about other brands, but the TST 507 system provides air pressure and tire temp anytime the sensors are installed. Air pressure turns them on. The monitor in the truck can be set to display only your truck or your truck and trailer so when I am parked and remove the sensors I change the monitor to display only the truck since I leave them on all the time. I do put my trailer sensors back on a couple of days prior to travel to see if I have a low sensor battery which is easy to replace and to check the tire pressure with a gauge. After the sensors are installed you can then see the difference in your gauge vs the sensor pressure so daily checking of the tires with a gauge isn't necessary.

Tire Pressure Monitors

Lots of good information here, thank you....another question...what is the advantage to flow through as opposed to non-flow through...are they difficult to remove to add air?

It is an improvement. I do have to remove mine once or twice a year but otherwise they stay put.
If buying today, I would get the flow thrus.

We are heading South to start our first full-time RV trip. We depart Canada on the 1st of November.
Went to check my tire pressure before traveling and the four of them come in low around 55 to 58 PSI. When I look at the tag from Jayco on the street side of the 5er it reads 80 PSI Cold. I note the the Towmax STR Powerking, ST 235/80 R16 state max PSI is 80.
Should I be filling my tires to the MAX 80 PSI???

RowMatt- I have Towmax 235/80/16's on my 5'er, the manufacture tells you to run 80 lbs. max cold psi because they know that if they are used as advertised weight load vs air psi they will be fine. I always run 80 lbs. and always check before leaving and returning, and as far as over the winter, I checked the Towmax owners manual and it states if not putting trailer on jack stands to fill the 80lb. max tires to 100lbs. while it sits over the winter especially if your not able to rotate them over the winter. I bought my Jayco Eagle 31.5 RLTS in Nov. 2013, and now have towed it for 9,730 miles and have seen no bulges on the tread or sidewalls and have not seen any tread beginning to come apart anywhere, but from what I've seen on this forum, I will be keeping a very close eye on them, but hey, who wouldn't when you've spent this kind of money on a nice 5th wheel, why would anyone be so lazy as not to check their tires often, not only the damages you may be keeping from happening but your family in the TV at highway speeds the possible consequences that may occur if you don't take the time!!!

Thank you everyone for your comments. Our trip to Florida Panhandle was good. I did purchase a TM66 with two extra sensors (4 for the truck and 4 for the trailer). Easy to install and seem to work good. I will now travel with a piece of mind but will still watch my speed on those tires. I still see RV running at 70-75 mph. Not me any more. Thanks again.

My wife and I were on the interstate 75 in our auto recently going to south Georgia. My cruise control was set on 79. We had no less than three 5th wheeler combinations go by us like we were stopped. And then they wonder why they had a blowout and all that damage!

X2 and also a hazard to everyone on the road when they have to stop.

Iv'e always checked and set right t the sidewall max cold psi of 80 lbs. but be sure they are cold. I have Tomax 285/ 16/ 75 and have 9,075 miles on them and are wearing great, but have been watching for bubbles but none so far, crossed fingers and eyes, lol.

Just don't cross your eyes while you're inspecting them! I could barely see that my Towmax had a broken tread while it was mounted to the trailer. Once I got it off the trailer, it was big as day though. The only reason I caught it was because I didn't trust the tires, so I was watching them VERY CLOSELY, and one just didn't look right in the mirror going down the road. Just be really careful with your inspections, those tires aren't trustworthy IMO.
