Looking at purchasing a tire pressure monitoring system for our travel trailer. Any suggestions regarding manufacturers and models would be appreciated. Leaning toward the Tymate brand but would appreciate suggestions. Thank you.

I like the TST system. Have it for my MH and toad. Works great and doesn’t drop out when you use the repeater (which is necessary).

Another vote for the TST 507 had mine for several years and its caught a few leaks which may have saved me a more serious problem.

Another TST vote. Bought system for MH and toad and works flawlessly. I had operator question about compatibility between the 2 valve sensors and called them. "Leave a message.."and **** if a very nice guy didn't call me back in 10 minutes and tell me to call anytime.
BTW, never needed booster. Picks up toad sensors everytime.

I have no experience with anything but my current Tireminder, and I really am liking it.

Didn't read all the responses but I would suggest staying away from the sensors that are built into the tires because, at one time, not every tire shop could or would deal with the sensors when they repaired a tire. That may have changed but we have the kind where the sensor is installed on the metal valves so don't have the problem

I just bought the TST 507 with flow through valves. I tested it last weekend with good results. There are several good TPMS on the market. I liked the idea of the flow-through valves where you don't have to remove the monitors to add air. However, you'll need to have metal valve stems to use that model. On the trip, it cycled through each tire showing pressure and temperature. Seemed to work well.

I could use some ideas from the group on the best way to install the signal repeater. It looks like it could get attached on or near the battery box. But, it would be nice to have a shutoff to prevent draining the battery. How did you install it?

Mine is installed on the rear wall of my last storage compartment (class A). I just remove the fuse when it’s not in use.
