TPMS for Berkshire or similar sized motor homes

I have a Berkshire 390BH and am putting 6 new tires on it next week. For safety, as well as tire longevity, I am thinking of using a TPMS with the new tires. The owner of the tire dealer where I'm going said the aftermarket TPMS systems are trouble-prone, and he does not recommend any of them.

Question: does anyone have a TPMS on their 40' or larger coach that they can recommend with no reservations? You've had no unexplained signal drops, no false readings, no dead transmitter batteries multiple times in the same season, they don't leak...

Anyone disagree with my tire guy? If so, what system did you install?

Thanks!

Have TST tire monitors on motorhome and toad, no air leaks, get reading. Had to put a repeater on back cabinet to ensure we get the toad readings. Really simple to sit in drivers seat and look at presure when we pullout. Would recommend it without doubt.

Would recommend ones on toad becuase you won't even know until too late if tire goes.

Question are you using the external or internal ones?

I have the tire minder system on my 390bh and my toad. I do have a repeater mounted in the storage bay. The only issue I have is the on occasion I get a no signal from one or two of the sensors. Batteries very easy to change and typically last 1 year. The company also has an exchange policy to replace all the worn out batteries. The company had great customer service.

I would not be without it as it makes it easy to check the pressure every day before heading out. I have compared readings with my tire pressure gauges and they are right on.

I have the TST system with repeater. Works excellent and discovered a leak in my toad wheel ( nail ) prior to any problems. Excellent customer service too.

Using the external ones. Have the 507 model and they sent me a free repeater once we noticed it wasn't picking up the toads sensors all the time.

I ordered the EEZ RV tpms system (10 tire) a few weeks ago but haven't even taken them out of the box yet. Will put it to the test in a few weeks.
