Tire Pressure Monitors

Recommended Posts

There are so many brands of monitors and with the recent discussion (and confusion) on correct tire pressure seems a monitor is essential.
Do you use a monitor? 
What tire pressure monitor do you use/recommend.

Search doesn't do much usually, but in this case it gets a bunch of hits:

After more than four years I still like it. I "flick" each transmitter in the morning before I leave camp to wake them up, that way the monitor will show the current cold pressure, not the hot pressure from the last time it was on. This is not possible with internal automotive type sensors. They will show you the correct pressure as you drive away, after a minute or so. Be sure to add one to the spare tire also. Install a short spare tire extension air hose and you won't have to remove the tire to add air.

Definitely buy a TPMS, you will be much less stressed on the road, especially when you are far from services.

@Katjo I see you have a 2021 Ram.  With a quick Google search I see 2021 Rams can come equipped with the built in TMPS system for trailer tires.  Do you know if you have this feature on your truck…?

I have it with my 2021 Silverado tow package. I had Discount Tire install the sensors in my LEII and program them to the truck.  It works great and I monitor them on the dash LCD screen without having another gadget to deal with.

@tallmandan Thank you so much for that information. I will check with my husband on that. I love the idea of not having another gadget on the dash! I’m going to screenshot your comment and show it to him, if we do have it that’s the way to go! Really appreciate that info!

For those of us in the single axle Elite, having awareness of the health of your tire is imperative!  I encourage ALL Ollie owners to be aware of how your tires are doing at ALL times, not just when you check them from time to time.

I used my TST on my pop up trailer and it worked great.  In November I will use it on the Oliver when we pick it up.
