I have the EEZ with 10 tires total (incl. my toad - CRV). Works like a champ...have had it for over a year. It was just out after 5 months in winter storage and all worked just fine on startup. Highly recommend them. I've spoken with their people prior to purchasing and they were/are awesome...great folks. I didn't have any dead senders, but it can happen...they will get replacements right out if you need one.

Personally I prefer and bought external TPMS with Lifetime warranty and with early warning "rapid air loss" feature that warns when your pressure drops quickly from the hot pressure and does not wait till you are 15% below the cold set temperature as I believe some systems do. At that point you may have already damaged the leaking tire.

For those that don't Monitor the toad I had a issue over the winter where my braking system in the toad applied the brakes. I only noticed it because the temp on the tires went up and sounded the alarm. I stopped ASAP and disabled the brake but damage was done. That fast new pads and rotors on a new car. Without the TPMS on the toad I have no doubt it would have caught fire.

I know I would be awfully worried if I had to leave without my tire monitoring system.
Modern technology is great for making things safer than they have been in the past.

TPMS is a no brainer. Should come standard on all motorhomes with an option to add for the toad.

Phil that sucks. Did you ever determined what actually happened ? Faulty braking system ?

Not really. It wasn't the system I usually us. It was a RV1 that I borrowed from a friend. It works just fine on his. We tested it several times.
