RV TPMS – Don’t Leave Home Without It! – Our EEZ Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Tire Pressure (& Temperature) Monitoring Systems are a must-have piece of safety gear on an RV. We wouldn’t leave home without ours! While we’ve always used a TPMS, we started having some issues with our old system, which led us to start looking for a new one.

It had been so long since we got our original system, we decided to look into what might be on the market that’s newer, potentially with more or better features or functionality.

We’ve spent the past 6 months testing our new system, and today we’re reporting on our experience. If you’ve been here with us for very long, you know we wouldn’t have made a video telling you about a piece of our RV gear unless we really like it. Spoiler alert – we love our EEZ Tire TPMS!

If you want to order an EEZ Tire system for your RV, it’s available with any number of sensors (we have a tag axle and tow a car, so we use 12 sensors). You also have the choice of the “anti-theft” sensors or “Flow Through” sensors, which allow the use of a regular air pressure gauge without removing them. But since you still have to unscrew the caps to use a gauge anyway, we went with the original anti-theft type, and are happy with our choice.

You can also opt for a signal booster. Since our RV is 43′ long, it was a given we’d want to add that extra range. But shorter RVs can also benefit from a booster, which can help overcome any electronic interference from your RV’s electrical system. We haven’t had one single tire drop-out in over 6 months of use & testing!

Hi, my wife Lauren and I just purchased our first pusher. It’s a Tiffin Phaeton, a little older but the interior was well maintained. One issue is the factory front tire TPMS gives an alarm, and the replacement is no longer available. Any suggestions for a stand alone system? Also if the factory unit can be shut off?

Hi Scott. The EEZ system that we mentioned in this post and video is still working perfectly to this day and we cannot recommend it highly enough. There are links right here in the post that you can use to buy one. As far as shutting off the factory system, sorry, but we don’t know about that one, but Tiffany can surely assist you.

Question on the tmps...We've got a Newmar Ventana and tow a GMC truck that came with the factory tpms. Would the EZ unit have any affect on that? Would I need to remove the sensors when I'm not towing it? Thanks!

Hi Daniel! Always great to hear from a fellow Newmar owner.???? First, we're not 100% certain, but we pretty sure we know the correct answer. Because factory TPMS systems on passenger vehicles are built into the wheel/tire assembly, there should be no conflict or problem whatsoever in adding a second, external aftermarket system that reports up to the RV. They're completely independent of each other, so you should be fine. We never bother to remove the sensors from our car. They're so light and small that they're barely noticeable.

Hello, Geeks. My wife and I have both followed your posts since before we purchased our Newmar Bay Star last year... great ideas and advice! Thank you.

My only issue with the EezTire (I bought a package shortly after buying the coach) is that the 'front' of the vehicle always faces the left side of the screen. Since I have the display mounted to my left side, the display is always 'driving' backwards. I called the tech guy and he explained that there is no way to reverse the display. Although I've had a few minor issues, this has been the only complaint they can't fix. Still, I'm pleased with the purchase and glad you guys are, too.

Safe travels!

That's an interesting issue, Alan! Never thought of that, as ours is mounted in the center between the driver & passenger, so it hasn't been an issue for us. But we can see how that could be "mind bending" looking at it and having it backwards!

Hey guys great video - thank you! Regarding mounting the booster in the rear closet of our Newmar Kountry Star DP ... how did you power up the booster? I don't think there's 12V power in this closet. Also, did you have any issues screwing on the monitors to the inside rear tires. On our rig the stem does not stick out through the hole in the wheel.

Hi Barry! Always great to hear from a fellow Newmar owner. We powered our booster off the 12-volt power that comes into the light in the ceiling of the closet, and mounted it on the back wall right up by the ceiling. As far as the inner duals, it sounds like you may need to replace your valve stem extenders with slightly longer ones. Hope this helps!

First off, my compliments on another fine informative video. We've been using the Eez system on out 15 Dutch Star since the day we left the factory. It's a great system and as you mentioned, very easy to use. It saved us from a potential fire as we had a right front wheel on our tow vehicle with a brake caliper that had locked up. Without the monitor, we would have never known perhaps until it was too late. The Eez did its job!

Thanks Richard! And thanks for sharing your story! That's a good reminder that it's not just the tire pressure that's important! Catching a temperature increase as a result of a stuck brake caliber is a great example of how a system like this can help catch a potentially dangerous and expensive problem BEFORE it becomes either. So glad you had the EEZ installed when that happened!
