Today we are going to show you the Hopkins wireless tire pressure monitoring system, part number HM30100VA. The system displays and continuously checks the pressure of each tire in the system. The system can monitor up to 24 tires. The Hopkins tire pressure monitor system, or TPMS, is compatible with all sizes of tires for cars, trucks, trailers and RVs. The sensors work on all sizes of tires up to 150 psi. And additional sensors are sold separately. The sensors simply install on the valve stems of each tire on the rig. Once installed for the first time, the sensor will take a reading and establish that as the baseline pressure. So make sure before you install any of the sensors that all of your tires are inflated to their proper pressure. Now we will move inside and we will show you the monitor. 0:51
Once you have your sensors in place, take the receiver inside the truck or RV and plug it in to the cigarette lighter port. When you first start up the system, the receiver is going to run through and check each sensor. We have ours set up for a dual rear wheel axle RV. On the face of the monitor are three indicator lights, green, yellow and red. The yellow warning light indicates that we have lost enough pressure that we could be compromising fuel economy or adding extra wear and tear to our tire. So, at the next convenience, we should get off of the road and add pressure to the tire. After 60 seconds, the sensor will clear itself and the next time it is installed it will establish that pressure as the new baseline. Once we do that, our yellow light will quick flashing and will go back to green. So, make sure that you have your tire filled all of the way up before you reinstall the sensor. Now, if we have lost 25 percent or more air pressure the red light will come on indicating that we need to stop immediately and add pressure to the tire or else we could risk a blowout. 2:00
On the face of the monitor, we have our power button and our mute button for silencing alarms. With the screen open, we have access to the rest of the control buttons for adjusting our configuration or making any other changes to the system. We can close the lid to reduce driver distractions. Should one of the tires lose pressure, our yellow light will come on and then we can flip open the screen and gather the information to figure out which tire has lost pressure. There you have it for the Hopkins wireless tire pressure monitoring system, part number HM30100VA.
