TPMS-tire pressure monitors question.

We have a 2014 Sunseeker built on a Ford E450.
Can I assume that all 6 tires have a tire pressure monitor?
How about the spare underneath?
Anyone? Thanks!

I don't think it has any.

There is a tire pressure warning light on the front panel.
I should have asked if there were individual tire "sensors".

We have a set of 6 TST 507 Flow-Through sensors and wouldn't do without them. They work great, wireless monitor is perfect, and their customer service is outstanding. I had an issue with one sensor last year and they talked me through the fix on the first call. I feel such a sense of comfort knowing the status of each tire as we travel. As soon as my new Legacy comes in I will install them before leaving the dealership!

If your RV is equipped with that system then yes, each tire will have it's own sensor. With only having a light on the front panel you will not be able to tell which tire is low when the light comes on. It would also be good to know what the factory settings are.

thanks, Campin. The standard line is the light comes on "25% below the door post value". So I've been told. Ford E450 manual is typically vague. I can deal with knowing if 1-of-6 is low. Can't see the cost and complexity of a full-on monitoring system. Maybe I haven't heard enough horror stories.

No problem Standup, you can maybe look into some type of programmer that would allow you to set the low and high PSI to a certain pressure. That way you would know that if the light came on its time to stop and check pressure before the tire blows out.

We have a 2014 Sunseeker on the E450 and there are no sensors. We went with TST and the version with the user replaceable batteries.

lower the pressure on one tire in the back and you will know if system works or not.
