It might be a good Idea for those that have new camper to check the date codes on there tires that came with your rig that way you will know how new your tires are, if they are more then a year by date code I would be seeking replacement by the camper manufacture and do this while you are still under warrenty.....If I remember correctly a tire that was manufacture and placed on a shelf and was stored for 5 years is now no good, this tire could be a danger.

I bought mine when not too many campers were being sold.

Those frames could have been there a long time before they got built into my particular camper.

I bought my tires from The Tire Rack online and had them shipped. Then had them mounted and balanced locally of course.

I checked at local tire dealer and his quote was around $400 cheaper than the local RV dealer for same Maxxis tire. Pays to call.

What kind of TPMS? Does it just show at stem or is there some that you can monitor from your TV?

ONLY get the ones you can monitor at the RV. I have never heard of one you can only read at the tire. Why not get a 10 dollar gauge?

This is the system I am looking at for our camper. Just too much stuff ahead of it (like teeth )

tst systems

I just looked at my tires, Karrier Loadstar ST175/80/13 Radials they are dated 3810. My TT is a 2012 Microlite, is it possable they put two year old tires on when they built the TT?

You should look at your build date of your trailer. But sometimes they have the frames with the tires on them waiting to be built or dependingon if you ordered it or bought it off the dealer lot. Because your 2012 could have been built in 2011 and sat on the dealers lot
