Checking Tire Pressure

We just purchased a 2018 32ds and I am curious what everyone is using to check the tire pressure. Just getting to the valves seems like a pain. I知 thinking I just need to drop valve extenders on all the tires and call it a day.

The BEST thing you could do is install a TPMS system like the TST 507 Color system. It'll monitor the pressures AND temperatures, and if you have any questions, Mike Bensen from TST is a FREQUENT poster here and will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Wasnt hearing good ownership experiences using external temperature/ pressure sensors. Too many reporting loss of sensors in any number of different conditions.

Prefer an OEM style air system monitoring.

Had excellent experience with a DILL TPMS, bought through Americas Tire.

A 10 sensor system was reasonably priced, and you can put it on your Americas Tire card with 6 months no interest.

Being inside the rim, sensor longevity is closer to OEM style ie your cars.

Absolutely zero issues or loss from our TST all last season. Always monitoring and alerting as it should have.

OEM is basically internal which you can buy from a number of aftermarket vendors and I believe TST has them as well.

Depending on overall length may need the repeater to ensure a good signal to the monitor.

I had TPMS on my last rig. I値l most likely put them on this one. For those that have the external systems I知 assuming you used valve extenders? I just can稚 see a way to get air into the tires without them due to their location.

2018ds has extenders for the inside rears but that is it. Just getting to front and outside rear is extremely difficult though.

Semi-truck air chuck is helpful, but not a necessity.

Any truck stop would sell one in a pinch.

I put 90 degree valve extenders to the outside rears . I use a blue point digital tire pressure gauge . Works good for me .
