TPMS help
« on: September 25, 2017, 09:05:41 am »
Well I lost a tire on my boat trailer this weekend and before I noticed it had shredded and torn up my $1200 fender and rear light. So I'm starting the search for a good reliable system that will do at least 8 tires (5er and boat). Keep in mind that my boat trailer tires are about 70' from the cab of the truck where the monitor would be. I known they have signal amplifiers but how well do they work? My first camera system was wireless and was supposed to be good for 50' but the signal was marginal at best from the back of a 38' 5er. It worked great picking up wireless camera systems going through towns like seeing in baby cribs and front doors on peoples front porches but behind the camper it sucked.

What are some good systems out there and do they make a system where a receiver can be mounted on the back of the camper and hard wired to the monitor?

I've lost 4 tires in two years. Two blew and two I felt separating and got stopped before they blew. The boat tire is the only one that has caused damage and that is because I couldn't tell that it had went down. I seen it throwing debris is how I knew it was gone. I had been on the road for about 2 hours when it happened. No they are not China bombs.

My only experience is with TST. I'm happy, good customer service. I would call and ask about the length, they will know. And a live person answers the phone too.

i've got TST flow through sensors....and i have a repeater so the jeep tires read out....

but lately i've been having trouble with them....i am considering going back to TST conventional sensors.....i have been getting water intrusion into the seals around the batteries on the flow throughs.....the seal on the conventional sensors is better....

but a vote for TST anyhow...
