If you’ve seen our videos about RV tires, you know that there’s a lot more to be aware of than with passenger car tires. In this video, we cover yet another important RV tire safety tip: the set-up and use of a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, or TPMS. To help keep you as safe as we are, we’re giving away the same model PressurePro TPMS monitor that we use, along with 10 tire sensors, an awesome prize worth over $700! The giveaway ends on March 22, 2015, so be sure to enter today.

Unlike a passenger car, you might not know if you have a flat tire on your RV. Since there are usually dual wheels on the drive axle, one tire can support the RV if the adjacent tire goes flat, or just gets low on air. And you almost certainly wouldn’t know about a flat on your toad, even with a backup camera.
A flat isn’t the only concern. Low tire pressure can make an RV difficult to control, cause uneven tread wear and even early tire failure, or at least a reduced lifespan. Since most blowouts are the result of slow leaks, we want to know as early as possible if the pressure drops in any tire.
Our PressurePro TPMS keep tabs on all of our tires at all times, providing an extra level of safety and peace of mind. Since our RV is over 40 feet long, we also use an echo repeater, installed in the rear of the coach, to make sure the signals from our rearmost sensors reach the monitor. We love the way the system operates, and we also appreciate the fact that PressurePro is made in the USA. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions, since we just provide an overview of the set-up and use of the system here.
