TST saved my bacon with the original Chinese tires.. Any of the major brands would do the same. Most common seem to be Pressure Pro and TST. Great investment.

TST
  • Sensors always on. (No need to roll first to wake them up.)
  • Can easily drop/add the trailer
  • Terrific Customer Support.

PressurePro is the asnswer for people that get it and want reliability. TST is the China alternive. Canada and the USA don't produce much but the PP is American made if you care.

What brand requires rolling first to wake them up? Never heard of this before.

I believe Smartire does or did.

Hard to go wrong with either TST (I have the 510) or Pressure Pro. Plenty of happy users here.

Hummmm, interesting. When "asleep", is there any drain on the batteries? I can see where that could be useful.

I unscrew my pressure pro sending units (sensors) when the coach is stationary for any period of time to help save the batteries.

However, once screwed back in, they will reset themselves to the current pressure, so I always have to check the tires with my gauge to make sure they are up to the correct level.

Ron

I do the same thing when parked for extended periods and I'm on my 5th year with the same sensors with my PP.
I don't know if Smartire batteries are "asleep" before they roll or not, probably are but personally, I want to know my tire pressure before I leave, rather than get notified a quarter mile down the road that I should have adjusted pressure or have one leaking. Also, if you have an issue with one of their sensors, you or someone is breaking that tire down to get to it.

To the OP, do a search for Pressure Pro and TST. Those are the two most popular brands and you get enough info to read for hours.
