After I ordered on-line I called them just to MAKE SURE they really had one in stock (hard schooling from Campers World). Yep, they had it in stock, but the orders had already been run over to the Post office, so mine wont go out till tomorrow. However he offered to run it over today! I said "no rush"..

X3. Had mine since March. Customer service is excellent. Some points to be aware of. There units sometimes operate on the same freq as atomic self setting clocks and or wether stations and wireless thermometers. Those devices compete for signal and can make it impossible for the tire mounted sensors to send a signal to the base on the dash.

Even after removing those devices I had problems picking up the 7th and 8th tires or our motorcycle trailer because they were so far back from the front. Customer service replaced my entire system and its has worked ever since. Plus I needed to add a repeated to bounce the signal.

If you have any problems call them. They will make it right.

I run my tires cold at 88. This device gives me piece of mind!

I've had a Talon TPMS for two summers now. It's made for 18 wheelers and can handle something like 22 tires, but works well for motorhomes. In general I like this system, but it does have some issues.

I've tested the accuracy with two tire pressure guages and it's dead on. No problem there. Every now and then I will lose a signal from one or two tires. After a short period the signal has always returned.

The system I use has the pressure sensor in a large cap that screws onto the end of the valve stem. They also have sensors that mount onto the inside of the rim, more like a traditional sensor.

What I like best is the peace of mind this give me. I've heard of people blowing inside rear tires (or having very low pressure) and not knowing about it until someone told them or it was too late. It's also interesting seeing how heat effects the pressure. It's not uncommon for the tires to increase in pressure by 10+ lbs as the tires heat up. It's also great to check the pressure in the tires while in the coach before I leave the campground. I've seen statistics that very few people check their tire pressure, including RVers. This system makes it a no-brainer and a no-effort exercise.
