My EEZ system does that too. I can drive away from the trailer at the storage yard and still have nice pressures being reported by the monitor when I get home.

I have been pleased with the TireMinder tpms. It shows the 6 motorhome tires on one screen and the 4 toad on another screen and cycles through the two screens.

Just bought this same one

How hard was it to change the pressure to PSI (one I bought was Bar and I couldn't get it to switch). Also was it easy to put the sensors on the dually wheels? I might just have to take the beauty rings off to reach outside tire stem since it's inside this small circle and can't really reach it.

I just bought one. Any tips or tricks you can share? Any youtube video you found for it?

Thanks
Brad

I'm satisfied for the cost, around $70 IIRC.

So when driving tires heat up, what is the proper temp and was I right to set pressure when cold? Or should I adjust them after driving?

This may be one of the small points to avoid on the cheaper options out there!

Consider WHY we want the TPMS and then think of what happens if something goes wrong. Say you hit a rock on the road and it knocks the sensor off the inside dual and you drive away with the sensor laying on the road and you are a half mile away and the system still says all is fine? Assume the valve stem is also gone!

A better system alerts you when it stops getting a signal from any of the sensors and you know to go look.

Basic point is that not all systems are the same and it is like lots of other stuff we shop for. Cheap is always good until it is no good at all!

Changing the sensor to PSI was easy once I figured out the right button to push on the side.
There was a sequence I think and I know the directions are vague at best. I just kept trying things till I figured it out. Sorry I don't have it anymore, got sold with theRV. And yes to get good access to the inner rear wheels I got some stiff not flexible extensions and then had to cut away from the beauty ring/wheel cover about an inch square just off one of the holes.

My TireMinder kit arrived today. One word----WOWZA! This kit is built in a SERIOUSLY deluxe way. As a purchaser of way too much electronic stuff over the years, I can say without doubt this is one of the most impressive (appearing) products I've ever bought.

Every part of the kit (and there are quite a few) is built to a gorgeous standard of quality and function. From the huge screen to the heavy duty mount, to the clever 12V/120V charger adapter, to the cords, cables, gauges, and other accessories, this has been seriously engineered. In my original post I was bemoaning what I considered a lack of up-to-date technology in many of the offerings I saw. This has surpassed my expectations for a well engineered product.

Well now, I hope it performs as well as it looks to be built!

Took me some time to get this installed as my rv was getting new upholstery and flooring.

Installation was fairly simple. The separate transmitter booster got bolted underneath the rear to the frame of my spare tire rack. That took about an hour to drill a few holes and tap into the wiring harness. Setting up the receiver and tire senders took another half hour. The software is well designed and easy to use. The receiver is mounted with Velcro on my dash and shows all 6 tires for either pressure or temperature.

Now, I'm worried about theft of my tire monitors!
