Be mounting new tires shortly and decided it would be worthwhile to upgrade to a TPMS system for monitoring. There seem to be hundreds of different types available. I'd prefer to have one that reads both pressure and temp if possible. Looking for recommendations from those of you who have one and like it.

Thanks for any input you can offer.

Good reading here.A smaller bunch.
Just a few more.

As you can see, there are differing opinions on which works well for everyone. But the overwhelming opinion is that a TPMS can save you some hassle.

See this article for suggestions:

Personally, I use the TST system.

This subject is discussed a lot. TST seems to be the most popular. But Tire Minder, Pressure Pro, EEZ, and a few others also have satisfied users.

It's too soon. Most RVers wait until they have a blowout that causes extensive damage to the stuff underneath [emoticon]

TST great company. Had a tire going down on a trip a few weeks ago, TST system saved me lots of trouble. Friends traveling behind us saw how great it worked and went home and ordered one.

I've been very happy with Tire Minder. They have good customer support also.

We've settled on TST. Seems to be suitable for our needs. I had hoped that Amazon would have it on sale during prime day, but that didn't happen! So, we'll pull the trigger next week at their current price of $297.

Thanks again for the tips and guidance!

TST saved me from trailer damage and a ruined tire. Had just purchased new tires and had a slow leak in the valve stem. During the trip I noticed the tire pressure going down on that one tire and by the time I got part way to my destination, I found a Discount Tire shop and they did find a bad valve stem. Saved me money and time finding out there was a leak before things blew up.
Paid for itself at that point.
