Recommendation For TPMS Option For Trailers  


I have been looking at TPMS and find most do not work with trailers without a signal booster and tend to be expensive. I would be satisfied with a dust cap indicator that shows if a tire is low or over inflated. The ones I have found so far are poorly constructed and tend to leak or are not reliable. Do you sell a quality product or can you recommend one? I trust your products and have purchased several products with which I am totally satisfied!

I understand your concerns and most of the reliable TPMS options include a booster component. Depending on your tire setup, I recommend the TireMinder RV TPMS for Smartphone, Item # TPMS-APP-6.

The TireMinder system, Item # TPMS-APP-6, comes with 6 brass transmitters that check tire pressure and temperature. The sensors easily install onto your tire's valve stems, have a pressure range of 0-232 PSI, and the system can be expanded up to 22 tires. This system requires Bluetooth and interacts with iPad, iPhone, or Android devices.

If you only need 4 transmitters, a similar system by TireMinder with same features and expandability is Item # TPMS-APP-4. For more monitors, you will need Item # TM-2Brass.

Other TPMS options are available. Send me more information like how many tires and what type of towing rig you have and I will make a correct recommendation.

I am also attaching additional information and videos for you to check out.

Hi, I pull an off road trailer and would like a TPMS for it. I want internal sensors as external ones can get ripped off in tight situations. It is single axle and would need 3 sensors. I would also like the phone app variety. Does anything like this exist?Thanks in advance,Keith B.

The best option we have would be the Tuson # 335TPMS4WIVS, which includes 4 sensors (there isn't a kit with just 3 sensors) that mount inside the tire. The only drawback here for your desired setup is that it uses its own monitor display, which is included. We don't have an internal tire system available that's designed to be used with a smart phone.
