Today I received my tire pressure monitoring system from TST. This article is about the installation process. I ordered extra tire monitors for the tow dolly. I did not order monitors for the car.
Part of my pre-departure inspection is to check tire pressure. I wanted to add the TPMS to make sure we were aware of issues that happen while driving. Granted I will be able to cut this one step out of the inspection, but the TPMS will add a level of comfort knowing that if there is a problem with the tires we should be made aware of it prior to a major issue.
I chose the TST model for a few reasons. Our rig came with a TPMS from another company that did not have replaceable batteries and you had to remove them to check the pressure or fill the tires. I wanted a unit that had replaceable batteries and that you could add air without removing the monitors. In addition, I wanted to be able to monitor the tire temperature as this is often an indication of a problem before the tire blows. I ordered my from Amazon as they had the best prices and I am a Prime member so shipping was free.
