Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

I just love good customer service and Truck system Technology Systems  has provided it.

If you remember, we purchased a Tire Pressure Monitoring  System from Camping World about a month ago.  I had done some research online and liked the TST system, mainly because of the good reviews and the fact that it monitors not only tire pressure, but temperature.

The problem was when we got the TPMS they only had one available and it only had 6 sensors.  We needed 10 for the Motorhome and tow vehicle, but we figured 6 would be better than nothing.  The system was easy to set up and the directions were in English!

We had been trying to get the additional 4 sensors for a while now.  Camping World had them on sale for $74.99 for two, but were out of stock.  I checked their online site again today and now they don't even show these sensors.

I called TST to order them, but they were listed at $100 for two sensors, but they said they would honor CW price, even though they were no longer doing business with Camping World.  Anyway, I ordered them and my total cost was $ tax and free shipping!  They are to be shipped today, so we'll have them by the end of the week

Having those sensors gives you one less thing to do at the last minute before you take a trip. The tire pressure is constantly being checked, so you don't have to worry about that.  I feel much more secure driving that big motorhome knowing the shape of the tires.  Sometimes the peace of mind is worth the cost.

That is one more thing to check off of my list of things we want/need when we start full timing.
