Does anyone have tire pressure monitors that they have been happy with. Thinking of buying them and need some advice on which ones to and not to look at beforeI make that decision

I have had the TST system for about 6 months. No problems, just works. I have the 4 tire (expandable to 18) since the truck has it's own system. Peace of mind going down the road. Reasonably priced.

I made up a little dollar store storage bin for it. I can post a picture later tonight about that. Holds all the sensors and controller in a bin.

I have the Hawkshead and like everyone else, no issue. Things I like are the easily changed batteries. If you have the option, a tee fill valve would be nice so you don't have to remove the sensor to check/adjust tire pressure.

I have Hawks Head and like them. I think what ever you get it's good insurance, I check mine all the time.

Based on other RV forums I've really not heard of anyone being unhappy with any of the major brands. I have had a TST system for 3 years and really like the way it works. I've had some problems with the battery life in several sensors. The owner of the company has been more than generous in replacing the sensors under warranty and even out of warranty. These folks really go out of their way to support their product.

If I were buying again, I think I would go with sensors that I could change the batteries.

I purchased the tst this year and have made one long trip with them. I like the system and the company has good customer service.

We have TST. I'll be honest the batteries did not last as long as advertised. 3 years old and 6 dead sensors.They will fix them at $20.00 a pop which includes a total refurb. I tried to e-mail them when the 1ST one died after a year and a half I never got a response. They were at the Yuma show this year and I had my Father in Lawstop and talk with them. I ordered 2 extra sensorswith the information he got for me.These sensors were back orderedfor delivery around a month, just about the amount of time the original system was back ordered as well. I will have the6 dead ones refurbished as it is cheaper than getting a new system for now.
On the positive side when this system works and it works well. We do not have a booster and when I walk around and loosen the sensor to inspect, the monitorpicks up the pressure loss quickly so far. After our blowout we were constantly checking tires in the mirror (to much it was a distraction to driving). Now I only occasionally look at tiresand my tow mirrors are set a little higher to view traffic and tires instead of looking right at the trailer front axle.
