Jimer, there are a lot of Forest River divisions/brands and a lot of models within those divisions/brands. You're going to need to be more specific.

Then that would include Rockwood's twin brand Flagstaff, since they are made in the same factory and on the same assembly line.

Just took delivery on a Rockwood Ultralight 5er (2020) 2888WS

Came with a built in TST tire monitor system. It had Castle rocks but they are load range "E" 225/75/15 I think Forest River is finally understanding tire issue.

Interesting.
I've not seen any reference to a tire monitoring system from the factory.

And what does 'built in' refer to?
Are the sensors inside the wheels?
You still need a monitor in your tow vehicle.

It wasn't added by the dealer by chance?

You receive a monitor kit. The repeater is already mounted by battery and the monitor is strapped inside tire on rim. When i get a moment i will check it out and get back to you. I did not order, came standard.
