External tire pressure monitoring

I'm looking into different types of tire pressure monitoring systems. Internal and external. The external seem less expensive ( doesn't require the tire to be broke down and remounted & balanced). Wondering what ya'll think about this.

Thanks in advance

I have been using the external EEZTIRE TPMS system for 3 years, and it has worked perfectly. The peace of mind knowing the pressure and temp of all the tires, and that it will alert when there is a problem, is well worth the price!

I have the TPMS mentioned in my signature line below. It is external. It seems to work fine. I especially like the fact that the monitor is solar powered and can sit on my dashboard without cluttering things up with a power cable. I charged it one time with the USB cable and the sun has kept it powered ever since.

I don't think the ZEEPIN TPMS Solar Power Wireless Tire Pressure Monitoring System will work for Leerich's FR3. It has 6 tires, and the unit you mentioned is only for cars and trucks with 4 wheels.

TST 507. It can handle any number of axles/wheels you throw at it. Included a signal booster, but I have yet to need it.

I use the TST 507 and advised my brother to get it as well. He has a 39' Holiday Rambler and tows a jeep. He has sensors on the MH and the Jeep for a total of 10 wheels and doesn't even need the repeater.

I use the TireMinder SMART TPMS. It is an external solution. The downside to the outside version is theft of sensors. I take mine off when the rig is in storage. Although I have not have a problem, the cost of replacement would be problematic.

Otherwise the system performance is good.

I have a Tire Minder system for all six tires. It is upgradeable for when you pull a toad. It has a device that looks similar to a cell phone that I keep on the dash in its out bracket. It comes with the bracket ,charger, signal booster,extra batteries, seals and six tire monitors. Works well and has signals for slow and rapid leaks.I only have to recharge it about every four months. You may also need valve extenders. The only problem I have had was with the guy at CW who installed it for me. But it saved me from driving on an under inflated tire.CW installed the valve extenders on the rear dual wheels. After camping for a week in a campground I turned on the system and got an alarm the inside tire on the rear was low on pressure. The guy at CW had not tightened the extender and the tire only had about 20lbs of pressure left. I highly recommend one of these. It also saves time and having to get down on the ground to check air pressure.

I had two diferent êxternal tpms - the last one was the ezz one. I have switched to the Gill internal one. I never had valve stem problems before nor after using the external ones. I put the ezz one on Ebay for $299+ if you want it. I had 3 valve stems fail while using external ones.
