2 Wheel/Single Axle TPMS

What does everyone use for their two wheel campers? What are the pros and cons to the one you're using? Thanks!

Two wheel or four wheel should make no difference when it comes to a TPMS. Just two less sensors to purchase and program.


I use a TST 507 on my trailer and it's been great. The thing I like is that it's 100% reliable and responds immediately to a loss of air as well as notifying when there's a slow leak. Responds so quickly that when I remove a sensor to double check pressure reading or add air, the alarm goes off as soon as the sensor is removed.

Other systems aren't as quick to respond.

Tymate

Most here seem to prefer the TST, but I use a Tymate that I bought from Amazon. Itís worked well for me and Iíve been very satisfied with it. Just last week I removed a sensor to add air, and the alarm immediately went off.
I bought the 4 sensor model and use LF and RF on my single axle Wolf Pup tires, and use the RR on my spare. Leaves me a spare sensor if needed.
It was about $60.

Favorite TPMS has been discussed many times.
I think the consensus on this site is the TST (mine as well)
They do a good job and are forum members. (or were at one time)
Doesn't matter whether you have a single axle or more.

As others have said, the most recommended in these forms is the TST system. But I went with this TireMinder system: https://smile.amazon.com/TireMinder-...573458&sr=8-20.

It's worked well for me, and I like having the app on my phone.

Does it have a setting for disabling the 4th sensor so it doesn't alarm or how does that work?

Exactly. I just set up the 3 sensors and the display only shows 3.

2 Wheel/Single Axle TPMS

Purchased TireMinder, Model TPMS-TRL-2. Designed for single axle; that is, comes with two transmitters, one affixed to each valve stem. Designed for trailers of max length of 25 and tires requiring less than 75 PSI. Minimal wiring. Transmitter on each tire contains button battery which sends signal to signal booster mounted on front, underside of trailer. Booster is connected to trailer battery (at tongue) with simple alligator clips which hold well. Display monitor is Solar Powered (without wires) and mounted just left of windshield rearview mirror. Note: The booster on trailer simply amplifies signal owing to other radio waves/air waves, etc. on the highway. System appears quite accurate. Allows for checking both temperature and PSI periodically as wished. Must decide which transmitters are best as one type is for rubber valve stems and other works well with metal stems. Customer service is patient and very helpful. TireMinder provides free battery replacement. Purchased on sale for $126 in 2020. Saved money, as competitors did not have a "two transmitter/single axle" kit, forcing purchase of four transmitters minimum. Mounted TPMS on Rpod 179 with Goodyear Endurance trailer tires.

2 Wheel/Single Axle TPMS

Tireminder has great customer service. My 2 year old tpms showed an error, did the troubleshooting and determined that one of the sensors went bad. Checked the price for a replacement and was disappointed how much it cost.
Gave them a call and they said I was entitled to one free replacement! A week later it arrived with 2 new batteries and return shipping label for defective sensor.
Very happy with the quality and service from Tireminder.
BTW, I have single axle TT. I bought it from Newegg. The receiver can handle 4 tires but only came with 2 sensors which is what was needed.

I had points with Chevrolet so I am trying the Trailer Tire Pressure Indicator Sensor package. I got it for a whole $17 after my discounts. It should work right through my Silverado's TPMS system.
