Air pressure monitors

Does anyone use these? I am curious as to their accuracy.

Thanks!

I should have titled this "Tire pressure monitors". Sorry.

After reading about tire blow-outs, we decided to buy a TPMS. We purchased the EEZTire 4-sensor system. Used it for the first time this past weekend and it worked as advertised. It gave us peace of mind looking over at the monitor which cycles from tire to tire every 5-6 seconds. It has a visual and audible alarm that goes off if tire pressure goes higher or lower than what we set. It also monitors tire temperature. The sensors take a CR1632 battery for when they need changing. The monitor has a rechargeable battery.

We bought the TST system this year and love it. Got the non flow thru sensors since they are lighter and easier to change batteries.

Mike Benson from TST frequents this forum and I know 4th of July weekend someone posted a problem with theirs. Mike responded with his cell number so they could call him and work through the issue. Also Chip from Great RV products is on here as well - they rep the TST systems.

Depending on overall length may need the repeater to ensure all sensor signals get to the monitor. Think that is the same with most systems though.

If you look at the TST see if it is the new color monitor they came out with. Can switch between trailers etc easily and much easier to see than the monochrome one.

Their customer service is top notch which is all too rare these days.

Just my thoughts.

I have an older set that I am looking to replace next year and they work well.

Just know that you should have metal valve stems installed if you are going to use the screw on type of sensors that are most popular.

I have been doing a bit of research on TPMS's recently because the new color screen TST is offering, trying to decide if I should upgrade. Anyway, the system you have, EEZTire is the only TPMS that I have found so far that supposedly solves the issue of an intermittent signal or lost signal. Have you driven away from your TT and ever noticed how long it takes for the Monitor to let you know there is no signal? I read a blog that it was very quick with the EEZTire TPMS. I actually read a manual for the TireTraker TT-500 and it stated 3hrs before it gave a warning that the signal was lost. The TST takes somewhere between 1/2 to 1 hour.

There are tons of threads on TPMS systems. Just put TPMS into the search field at the top of the page.

Here's one that's active right now:

the question should be not one of accuracy but do they alert me that I have a problem with low pressure or high temperature with a wheel/tire?

The answer to that question is yes. And they provide you some amount of safety to pull over after you see or hear the low pressure alert and possibly save you hundreds or thousands of dollars of damage to your trailer that happens when the damaged tire flays away at the under-carriage of the trailer as you continue to drive down the road without the knowledge that you have a flat.

I have the TST 507 RV kit now for 2 years with flo-thru sensors. Chip at Great RV Products has a good price and great service. Rare you can actually talk to a real person when you have a question these days.

I wrote a post to help those that need to change the battery here...

There's a TST rep posting, including his phone number, in the thread I linked to in Post #8 above.
