Tpms

Just curious what brand or make does everyone one use for their TPMS. Seems all the cheaper models arent for TTs and you need to spend $200 or more to get one that will work.

TST507, works great, no booster needed & user replaceable batteries.
You can buy cheaper, but you know the saying, "you get what you pay for"!

Second that. Ours came with a booster, but we haven't needed it. We have an Outback 272UFL which is about 30' overall but the receiver seems to pick up the sensors just fine.

I bought and have been using the TireMinder Smart TPMS system for the past two years. I recently bought a different Toy Hauler and two more sensors, since the new one is a triple axle and I now will monitor 6 tires instead of 4. No worries though, the TireMinder will monitor up to 22 transmitters. The big advantage for me is that the Smart TPMS does not have a dedicated monitor for putting on the dash/windshield of your truck....you use a phone app. The booster is mounted on the front of the trailer, and the Bluetooth adapter is suction cup mounted in the rear window of the truck and can either run on rechargeable lithium batteries, or plugged into a USB port. The B.T. adaptor also has a beeping alert built into it, just in case you want to open your phone app for monitoring, but let the phone go into sleep mode....you will still an alert. If you do, just wake up the phone and look to see what is going on. Lot's of good ones out there, it's just of matter of preference sometimes.

TST 507 works great and great customer service. I had a problem setting it up the first time, my fault, called the 800 number and they called right back and walked me through my setup mistake.

The TST 507 works great for me. If I were buying again, Id buy the same thing. I did get the flow-through sensors...Id save a few bucks and just get the caps...

With a dually truck the flo-thru sensors don't fit well on the rears, so save $$ & get the caps.

Went with the Bellacorp sensors -- 10 pack. Came preprogrammed for our dually and 5er. I haven't put many miles on with it yet, but so far so good -- it sends the signal from our 40' 3400RL up to our Ram 3500 just fine. I didn't need all the extras that TST comes with such as being able to program multiple trailers. I just need the one and this does that. Plus I like how when you aren't pulling the trailer, it's just a push of a button (well, two buttons -- hold one and push the other) to link/unlink the trailer from the monitor.

Eez RV TPMS has worked great for us for the last 3 seasons. Alerted us last year of a low pressure event on the rear drivers side trailer tire. By the time I stopped on the interstate, pressure had dropped to about 45 PSI...down from 80. 15 minute reset with the spare and we were on our way. Picked up a screw in the middle of the tread.

Thanks to all responding on the TPMS systems they use. After researching systems listed I decided to go with the TST-507 with color display. Again thanks to all for your help.
