We have been thinking of getting a tire pressure monitoring system and have questions, internal or screw on senders? What brand of unit? I am also concerned about keeping tires up to proper pressure. We have the factory china tires that are about 2 years old with 3,000 miles or so. Any help would be appreciated.

Fill to 65 psi cold and go for it. Nothing will happen. Filled mine to 50 psi cold at a temp of 42 degrees in the mountains of Northern New Mexico and drove home to Texas. Checked them in the early morning at home after sitting overnight. Still 50 psi at an air temp of 58 degrees.

TST 507 with flow thru sensors. If you can balance the tires with the sensors on, all the better.

Bottom line is if you make it a habit to check and fill if necessary each tire before you start your trip you will be fine. If you have a flat/low tire you will know it by poor handling. I have remote fill valves on my dual wheels and they are nice but they also create a leak point. A tire will not loose that much air during a trip unless you have a leak. I get into a habit to visually look (kick the tires) before each leg of the trip, no problems. The monitors are good but something else to worry about working right, what did we all do before monitors?

Cold PSI for tires

What did we all do before indoor plumbing? Made it work. But why not use the tools available to us now?

They aren't a cure all and I can't be sure I would have had issues, but I feel like my TPMS saved me from damage on a recent drive. On a tire that I suspected had issues, I hit a bad pot hole, and my TPMS immediately informed that that I was losing pressure. In just a couple of minutes, my 80psi tire was down to 34 and falling. Once I was pulled over, it kept dropping and within another few minutes it was in the teens. Had I kept driving, my bet is that my tire would have torn itself up and made a mess of the camper.

In the summer you set to 65 cold and I bet hot they are above 70 or more so I really don't believe this time of year they will exceed the same even when you go further south. Might go up if the temp goes from 20 to 85 outside but not that much and if you are concerned make a noon time stop and ck them after you've had lunch and they have set for a bit.
