I left the monitor on overnight to see if I have any leakage with them but haven't checked yet this morning.

Oh, one more thing, I got the flow thru sensors, I couldn't see needing to use the allen wrench and take the sensor off everytime I needed to add air.

The best price I could find was Vulcan Tire Sales, $229 with a 3 year warranty and the signal repeater included.
Great, thanks for the info.
Was that including the usual bundle of 6 sensors ?
My 5er is a dual axle, so only need 4 for that, but thought that maybe I'd get an extra pair to cover the truck too (since the F-250 doesn't have a true TPMS), since I read that you can set the unit to have different specs for each sensor

Found some organizational mini totes on sale and did some tool and accessories organization in the basement.
Looked @ how I'm going to run a 20amp supply line for a non prewired 2nd a/c.

It was 4 sensors I did my trailer only. It will support up to 22 sensors so you could do you whole TV as well.

It allows you to set different specs for each axle for up to 3 axles on you TV but on a trailer the specs are set for all axles on the trailer the same. It makes sense to me, you might have different PSI/temp needs on your TV front vs rear axles but I've not seen a trailer with different PSI/temp needs per axle.

Replaced my 1st Generation Furinon backup camera. This one works half way around the Goshen fairgrounds. I can see my back area by the Tiki Hut from the 200 section.

Was Nashville the limit for one 13,500 AC? I know we were hot in ours.

I think you will find you will definitely need the all metal valve stems. I tried using new high pressure rubber stems and they lasted about 1,000 miles before one started leaking. Took the tires off, installed the all steel stems, rebalanced the tires WITH THE Flow Thru Sensors ON. The sensors will change the balance by about 0.5 oz. is what we found on all 5 tires. (Spare included).

Thanks OC. I have a short trip this weekend, about 100 miles round trip and no speed limits over 50mph. I'm guessing I should be alright for this one.

I have a trip coming up to Asheville, NC for Labor day week. That's 1200 miles round trip, mostly all highway. I guess I'll need to get them done before then.

I don't think you will regret it, even tho' it is a hassle to dismount them and go thru all the trouble again.
