You should consider doing a Search for TPMS. I'm guessing we have 50+ threads on the subject.

So we are supposed to recreate the effort because it is too much work for you?

I read many reviews but most of them are on autos. I was thinking that the distance from the tires to the i side of my tv may affect the operation of the tpms.

Rude and lazy? All your questions are answered out there. I’m not sure what you mean by ‘autos’.

We have the eeztire by eez rv products. Has worked fine on 3 previous campers without a repeater. I have changed the batteries every year and as of now, no problems.

I don't think you read any TPMS installed on autos reviews on this forum...

As indicated in this thread above there are easily dozens of threads on RV TPMS systems in the past couple of years on this forum... any search for TPMS will attest to that. There is NO SINGLE best unit, and everyone has an opinion that has one.

I have had my TST 507 on my trailer now for about 2.5 years... I have the color monitor but started out with the mono monitor... I like the color better. Once charged for a couple of hours it requires no additional power for at least a couple of 8 hour days.

If you have a LONG trailer and you lose signal to the tow vehicle, then a repeater antenna is available for the TST

A TST rep named Benson usually hangs out on this forum and will answer questions. Again, you can find him in regularly commenting in TPMS threads.

Affordable is relative... saving a deflating tire from damaging your trailer while at freeway speeds just once will pay for most units.

I got my unit from Chip at https://www.greatrvproducts.com/

TST 507 as well. Mike Benson is a big help to us on this forum for questions about TST products.
If you really think Mr. Dan's answer was rude , you are far too thin skinned to last on this forum. Don't get butt hurt, just get all the info you can...there's plenty here.

Please. I have just spent an hour looking at the things on the internet. I thought "I will just ask the people on frf what they think." And I got told to seach the forum. Really, If I read something on here and dont know about it or dont feel like commenting on, I just dont post. I assume that everyone knows how to search. I thought well this guy thinks I am d. a. There are a pile of posts on tpms systems some are old. I was just hoping to get a few good recomendations thats all. I really cant spend 400-500 dollars on this I was hoping that some of the 100-150 dollar systems would work for me. Thanks for all of the info that has been provided.

Take a look at the classified area. Sometimes members have units for sale as they have gone a different direction. That way you are still getting a quality unit.

You can get the TST 507 4 monitor system with monocrome display for $224. at the website in post #12. That's close to your budget and way under $400-$500.
Here's a direct link:

TST 507 six sensor system for me. I have a 37' fiver, double tow a 15' squirt boat, and don't use a repeater. Use metal valve stems as it is recommended due to the little lollipop screwing on to the valve stem. You're not going to get a reliable tire monitor system for $100 … you'll pay near $250 no matter what popular brand you decide upon, peace of mind comes at some cost. Pointing out many threads on the topic of tire monitors was by no means rude. It was just meant to guide you into doing your own footwork by reading volumes of opinions readily available on this topic. You'll find RVer's are a friendly family spread out from coast to coast. You'll also find most all assume a responsibility whether it be driving, setting up, navigation, food prep, maintenance, and … research.
