Are you using a TPMS system for your TT - A Poll

I've been snooping around for an aftermarket Tire Pressure Monitoring System for the new trailer and wondering what the opinions of the differrent brands and types are on this forum. I currently have 2 PU's with the factory systems which I like, but no experience with the aftermarket stuff.

Only 3 votes and no replies. Hmmm, maybe should've started a thread on Beer or Wine. ;-hap

Re: Are you using a TPMS system for your TT - A Poll

I've thought about the aftermarket tire monitor. I always want to check the tires before we take off, but that is sometimes very inconvienient. I have also thought of the filling with nitrogen. I am a member of an organization that has a large cargo trailer and in December, we had the tires of that trailer nitrogenized (how about that for a word?) and so far the results have been very positive.

My towing vehicle also has the tire pressure sensors and I have really appreciated that option.

Yes I bought a after market TPMS after a bad experiance with tire failures. I would not tow a rv 5th wheel or TT without one. I bought one from EEZ RV for a lot less money than what TST sells one for.

Yes we have them. on the four tires on the trailer and the dualies on the truck. Going to get a set for the front soon. It is a cheap insurance policy for your rig. it is great, for us anyway, to be able to moniter the pressure and temperature of the tires. However I still go around when ever we stop checking the tires for heat, pressure and pointy things that may have worked its way into the tread.

I don't have much faith in an aftermarket one.

It was a recalled item in my Mazda 6, replaced by the local dealer, and worked correctly for 2 days.

While it did work correctly on our TV recently, I am in the same situation as Cooper.

I just got a flat on my new Denali, TPMS would have been nice. I was lucky and didn't damage my tire. As for options, I saw somewhere else someone mentioned internal monitors. Sounds good, less chance they will be damaged, but how do you change the batteries? Now, if you buy 4 for the trailer, and decide later to add the truck, do you have to change the monitor? An last question to you grump010, how many screens do you have on your dashboard already? I know mine is starting to look like a sportsbar.
