2019 Chevy TPM installed in their tires

Has anyone installed the TPM sensors that can come on the new Silverados in their trailer tires? My truck came with the TPM, and it will show the readings on the towing app page on the center screen. I have not had the TPM installed inside the tires yet on the trailer. I was seeing if others have used these, and if so how well do they work? I am not crazy having to take the tires apart, but may be worth it. I just put new Endurance on last year.

If you do the install, that would also be a good time to convert to metal valve stems on the tires if you still have rubber ones. That is another failure/leakage point (the rubber stems).

They were upgraded already with the new E rated tires.

I installed them on my old trailer. It works very well. America's tire couldn't program the sensors, but I just ended up buying a programming tool on Amazon that worked perfectly.

What is this towing app that you speak of? Will it work on a 2017 or is it a 2019 and newer type of thing? dward51 the stems are part of the sensor if you're using OEM GM sensors.

I installed them on my camper and boat this summer and they work great. I was replacing my tires (Endurance) and had just bought the new truck.

I took the old tires/rims and pressure monitors to Discount Tire and had them installed. I purchased this reset/activation tool:

It took a while to figure out, but I got them setup. The app on the truck basically walks you through it.

And there is no need to purchase metal valve stems. The sensors ARE metal valve stems.

The app is on the infotainment system. So no, it won't work on a '17.

But I believe the older trucks have the capability. Google and YouTube are your friends here.

2019 and newer GM pickups have the ability to monitor trailer tire air pressure and temperature and display the readings on the infotainment screen. There's much more to it than just an app. You need to have the advanced trailering system. 2018 and earlier models do not have it and only certain 2019 and 2020 models have it. So even if you have a 2019 or 2020, if it didn't come from the factory with the advanced trailering system, then you cannot utilize this function. If you're not sure if a GM pickup has the system, check the Monroney sticker. If you no longer have it, check behind your rear license plate. The module that reads the TPMS sensors is back there. If there is no module, you don't have it and it can't be retrofitted via a plug and play setup.

True. This is the standard GM TPMS sensor (ACDelco 13598772):

I have a 2015 Chevrolet 2500HD with the factory TMS and you monitor it on the infotainment screen. How many on here drive their tow vehicles with that showing on their screens constantly, I drive my truck with the speed showing.

2019 Chevy with TPMS

I would like to expand the conversation to Ford folks too. My new 2019 F350 has the capability on Sync but no one at Ford seems to know if you have to use Ford sensors on the trailer tires (fifth wheel). Did you have to have Chevy sensors to work on your system?

According to Fords website

Vehicle Notes: To add the Customer Placed Trailer Camera or TPMS kit to a vehicle as an accessory (post-delivery), the vehicle must be equipped with the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System (874).

TeachTexas - I have the option in my truck. Problem is no one at 2 Ford dealers can figure out the transmitter part. Ford or other, inside wheel or valve stem.
I even went so far as asking them if I buy the sensors like those that are in my truck's 6 wheels, will they work and they don't know.

Trailer tire TPMS displays on the infotainment screen, not the DIC. So if you want to keep your digital speedometer, you can keep your digital speedometer.

Yes, they are special trailer tire sensors. My 2019 Silverado came with four of them in the glove box.

That may be a truck tire sensor, but that will not work for trailer tires. Those are a different type of sensor.
