Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System-TPMS

Does anyone have a system which they like? I figure a TPMS is cheaper than the insurance deductible for the tire blowout damage.

We've used the EEZTire system for a few years, now, and highly recommend them. Even with an Max Crew Cab Tundra and 32 foot trailer it doesn't need a repeater.

I had a zero deductible for my blowout coverage.

I also have the EEZTire system and am very pleased with it. The sensors work without a repeater on my F250 & 24 Car Trailer combination. I need a repeater for the system to communicate reliably on my F250 & 35 Windjammer TT combination.

I swap the wheel sensors back and forth all the time between trailers and have changed the sensor batteries once in the three years Ive had the system. I remove the sensors from the wheels when not using either trailer so that the sensors go into the low power drain mode.

My sensors are the non-flow through kind. I inflate the tires 1 psi high figuring I lose a psi when mounting the sensors. The correlation between EEZ sensor readings, electronic pressure gauge and expensive analog gauge (for my race car) is perfect.

This will solve the financial portion of the issue, but will not salvage the ruined vacation due to the loss of the waste plumbing caused by driving with a shredded tire.

With dozens upon dozens of systems out there, how do you really decide on what's best ?

TST has the color display which I recently upgraded to. Very easy to see. Also they have great customer support. One of their reps, Mike Benson, is on the forum. If you buy directly from him and provide the setting he will program and label for you.

I have been in the market for a system for months, trying to decide which one to get. I just picked up the King Auto RV TPMS ($204.90 on Amazon). Haven't set it up yet but plan to in the next couple of days. I'll take it out for a test drive and report back.

Just purchased and installed the TST507. Drove 3k miles and it worked very well. I like the color monitor and read out.

Do a Search for TPMS and read threads/opinions/recommendations the rest of the afternoon!

I am in the market for a TPMS system also and yesterday's thread resulted in me spending several hours researching. I ended up making this matrix for myself. Got most of the info from the mfgs. website and some from the Q&A's for each product on Amazon. Some info for each is still unknown to me.

To me it looks like the Tire Traker and the Tire Minder are clones of each other. Their owners manuals are virtually identical with the same pictures and verbage. Based on features and price, I am leaning towards the EEZRV (typo in the matrix) but I am open to changing my mind with corrected info..

If any of you owners of the different systems could/would fill in the question marks I would be very appreciative.

Prices are the lowest I could find, whether from Amazon or the mfg..

Just finishing up 20000 with my TPMS system. Very reliable and I would recommend.

Trailer life likes Tireminder, Hawkshead, and TST in that order.

I had a non-flow through then went to a flow through. I had valve stem problems with both. I am now using an internal one and I like it lot. We are full timers with 70,000 miles in 2 1/2 years so the tires have rotated a lot. This last one was much more expensive but so is waiting for a repair person to replace a valve stem in a hot place.

The new one is made by Dill. They have models based on your vehicle.
