So we are new owners of an Grand design Imagine XLS 21BHE. I would like to get a TPMS, but want a small footprint in the cab. I am thinking of the TireMinder Trailer TPMS (https://www.tireminder.com/products/tire........nitoring-systems/tireminder-trailer-tpms), but it lists the PSI range up to 70 PSI. My tires are 65 PSI...Is this too close to the upper limit?

I was also thinking of the TireMinder Smart TPMS (https://www.tireminder.com/products/tire........monitoring-systems/tireminder-smart-tpms). The PSI range is much better (up to 232PSI), but I like the dedicated display of the Trailer one.

There is also the topic of cost (Trailer - $146 and Smart - $356)

Thoughts?

Thank you.

Cant help with those. I have a TST system with the color monitor. The monitor is mall and should take up less room than a phone or GPS.

Perhaps the OP should go back to the TireMinder website and review both product descriptions. BOTH versions ( Trailer and Smart) monitor tire pressure up to 232 psi. for 22 tires.

I did review the TireMinder website and the first line of the Trailer TPMS states:

"The new TireMinder Trailer TPMS is TireMinder's newest Tire Pressure Monitoring System, designed specifically for dual or single axle trailers running 70 PSI or less." (my bold added)

For some reason the link is not working in my original post, but it is this system...

https://www.tireminder.com/products/tire-pressure-monitoring-systems/tireminder-trailer-tpms

Here is the correct link for Smart system (which does go to 232PSI as I stated):

Thank you.

I’ve had the Trailer version for about 3 years now and it has worked well with both 50psi and 65psi tires. It does have a limit of 70 psi, but I’ve never had a problem with that.
It does read about 3 to 4 psi lower than my air pressure gauges do.
My son has 65 psi tires and the same system. No problems, either.

AAAH! Comparing apples to oranges. [emoticon]

The Smart TPMS (Clicky) that you are referring to is a cell phone enabled deluxe version of the standard RV TPMS - TireMinder Model TM-77 (Clicky). Twenty-two tires, up to 232 psi., with repeater for standard long trailers (>30 ft.)

The Trailer TPMS (Clicky) that you are referring to is the new SOLAR POWERED TPMS designed for smaller (pop-up/utility/mini) trailers less than 25 ft long, not more than 4 tires, and not more than 70 psi. per tire. (TPMS warranty is void if the tires exceed 71 psi).

Sorry, I assumed that you were comparing the Smart unit with the standard RV trailer unit TM-77. I use and recommend the TM-77.

I've ran D tires on smaller equipment/cargo trailer carrying close to max axle loads and on hot 100+ temp days psi went to the 72-75 ranges. Sound like you need a real TPM system for full size trailers.
