I am going to purchase a tpms very soon. What is the best brand in durability and has replaceable batteries. I tow a Montana 3475 and hope not to have to purchase a signal booster. Any advice is appreciated.

Like Tom said, its worth it for the damage it prevents. I have the tiretraker system but I dont think there is really much difference between brands. Just buy one you like and enjoy.

For previous posts search this Forum for `tpms' or `pressure pro' etc.

Do yourself a favor and call TST direct and talk to them about a system that will fill your needs. TST tire Monitor systems I love mine and think their service after the sale is great.

I have the TST 507RV flow-thru valve system. It works for me. Others recommended it and I have no regrets. I pull a 37' Montana with a 8' bed dually and don't need the booster. Not cheap, but any monitoring system will give you peace of mind. Glad I did it.

We've been using our TST 510 for over 4 years and wouldn't be without it. Saved us big time when a brake caliper stuck and it alerted us to sky high temps. This alert allowed us to save the rotor, tire and potential 5th wheel damage. Having the system monitor the PSI as well as temp is what made us purchase in the 1st place. We have a 38' Carriage and tow with a 2014 Dodge Ram dually and we do not need a repeater,even with our beloved 1996 Dodge Ram 3500. I did have to move my monitor to another spot because of all the electronics in our new truck but that was a simple fix. Di

No one can really tell you the BEST, just what works for them. For us, its the TST 510-RV system. After years of "going to get one", we had a blowout that caused damage. Ended up getting the TST system and put sensors on the fiver and the TV - the peace of mind is WELL worth the money spent. Very happy with it - and even use it w/ out the trailer when taking long trips. Haven't had a problem that required warranty or support, so can't say good or bad there.

I put mine on yesterday ,when I went out this morning the alarm was going off, took the monitors off the wheels and checked my tire pressure and each wheel had lost up to 10 pounds of pressure, did I put them on the valve stem to tight, to loses, I put them on what I felt was firm, why did this happen??

Too tight...should not cause this......My system came with a Guage....you set the
Valve cores at....too high, you can get leaks....too low, bad readings.

Did you have an extreme temp change,in any of this??......It should not change 10 lbs, but if you put them on hot tires, and the rig sat,and had a big tempersture drop....Could cause this.
Use a soap and water solution on stems,monitors and look for bubbles....


TO Origanial poster...I have the doran pressure pro.....made in U S A.......main reason....USA Workers. Made in Cincinatti, easy turnaround,for warrenty, repairs....had for about 6...7 years, on my second set of valve monitors...

.
VERY HAPPY saved my tires..... rig year ago.....
