Does anyone have a TPMS that they have had on their RV that they are happy with? We would like one but would like some recommendations first. Thank you.

Try searching this Forum for TPMS and read on. It has been discussed at length. We have Pressure Pro.

My tire traker seems to work ok. Does both temp & psi. Only down side is taking sensor off to make pressure adjustment. If doing it again I would drill a hole in each rim and add a second valve.

Love my Pressure Pro, had it about 8 years now, batteries still fine. Like it so much we added a monitor in daily driver and use sensors from TT on it when not towing. Works great.

We have been using a TST TM-510 unit that we purchased about 3 years ago at Camping World. It has performed very well. The only issue we noticed is that it seems to monitor at about 2 pounds less than our compressor or tire garage pressure. If we want to register 80# on the monitor we need 82# of pressure via the compressor and messured with a quality tire gauge. Not a difficult adjustment. It gives a great sense of comfort to be able to monitor while traveling and to have a unit that gives you warning if a slow or fast leak is developing while driving. Too many horror stories of blown tires at 70 mph in a motor home!

Pressure Pro for us too.... going on 5 years now. No issues, except the sticky tape they provide to mount monitor on dash would melt in the sun. Bought one of those table lamps that have the flexible stem and removed the base and light and mounted the monitor to one end and the other to a hole I drilled in the side of my dash and bolted it from under the dash. Now I can move the monitor right over close to me so that I don't have to take my eyes off the road for more than a second. A quick glance and can see all is well.

PP once alerted me to a "0" pressure reading on my right rear tire of the toad. Allowed me to immediately pull off without the blown tire doing any damage to the toad.

Great invention...wouldn't be without it.

I have the SmarTire syetem. The sensors mount inside the tires for true temp readings, unlike the valve stem mount sensors.

Last month I had a front caliper sticking-I could smell the brake pads burning.
I was able to monitor the tire cavity temps, the left side was 160F and the right side was 109F.

Four years on my 10 sensor TST 510 system without any problems.
