Bought a TireTracker system and have a total of 10 sensors to cover the truck and camper. Also got the booster with it as part of a package but have had no problems with range. Once you set it up and program it it works great.

I bought one for use on our last rip to FL. Worked flawlessly with the exception of the temps. The right side had temps continuously at least 5 degrees higher than left. Was concerned at first that I had a hub getting hot, then realized the exhaust from my truck was the culprit.

Wow that's sensitive.. Thinking it to be a good idea,cause I could have a prob with new tires too,n would not now it. The oem tires may be ok, but I'll have less lines on my forehead,during trip.
I see QC has tire tracker, what u got?

What package,did u get n from whom ? Looks like bout $150 or so to add for trk Usually would not worry bout trk,but might be good with extra # of trailer
Normally a $ 350-400 investment is a nobrainer,just burn'n through $ tryn to do too much too fast, now it's get'n down to choices So thanks for weigh'n in.

Bought from tpms works great and being able to see whats going on in the tires on your tt in your truck is very reassuring.. Have factory installed in my truck as well.. I love the thought of being able to monitor and be notified sooner than later .....prevention is the best medicine

Thanks Pony! More n more sounds like, I'll find a way to get some. Prevention is key,it's not so much chang'n tire in rain or what ever,think it is worth it to try and prevent $500 deductible,and potential down time. I've seen some nasty pics of aftermath!
