I've used a basic Pressure Pro system since just after they started and have been very happy with it. Replaced sensors over the years as the batteries died, but that's it. With 14 tires it's well worth the investment compared to manually checking pressures every morning.

Whatever you get, ensure you get flow-thru sensors so you can check (and adjust) your tire pressure every morning prior to departing for the day.


I just turn on our TST monitor an hour or so before departure to get the current readings. Some TPMS sensors stay in a sleep mode until the wheels start turning, but the TST sensors updatte every ~5 minutes even while sitting still. A visual tire inspection is part of my normal pre-departure walk around routine. I prefer the smaller valve cap style sensors that are lighter and as easy to remove for airing up as standard valve caps once you remove the useless rotating security covers.

Thanks to all who responded. Appears there are several recommended but TST seems to lead the pack. Again, thanks!

I do the same before we depart for the day. It checks all mh and toad tires for me. I still do a walk around to check that nothing got “placed” under the tires or vehicles.

very good practice, I once found a 4 oz. tire weight sticking out of the tread, ready to be pushed into the tire at next rotation.
We stopped at a over look on the way to Homer Ak. hears a sssssssssscoming from the right rear tire of the trailer, added a can of tire goo and drove it to homer to get it fixed.
