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

TheRVgeeks RV Tires 37 Comments

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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. Great to read about your choice and use of the EEZ TPMS. After much research, I too chose the EEZ TPMS for my motorhome about 2-1/2 years ago. Since then I’ve been to all 10 Canadian Provinces and 39 states including two trips to the east coast from California (one North and one South) and have experienced no problems with their system. I’ve had to replace the batteries but that’s normal (best prices seem to be on Amazon with a 12-pak). My coach is a 35′ Holiday Rambler diesel pusher and I tow a Jeep Wrangler, all of which have the EEZ TPMS to monitor the tires. I need no booster with this set up. It’s great peace of mind to turn that on while I’m packing up and before I leave I can see where the pressures and temperatures are at and, if necessary, add some air to ensure we’re all good. Sure beats running around with a gauge every day. Thanks for another great read.

  4. Thanks for posting a new video about your TPMS. I am about to purchase one tomorrow, and up until this moment I was set on the TST 507. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FKVZ8XS/ Aside from price, is there a reason you didn’t go with this unit. The EEZTire TPMS seems like it would cover all that I need, so now I’m SMH because I’m not really sure which one to get. We don’t have a toad, so we would only need 8 sensors in either case.

      Hi Carl! We don’t have direct experience with the TST system… but we’ve read lots about it during our research and it’s very well reviewed & liked by plenty of people. And honestly, the two systems are very similar, so we don’t think you can go wrong with either choice. That said, the reasons we went with EEZ over the TST system were the price (EEZ is just slightly less expensive than TST… or at least it was 6 months ago, LOL! And saving a little bit of money never hurts) and because we had seen some reviews of the TST that indicated that the pressures reported by the sensors were 5-10psi lower than what owners had read using their dedicated tire pressure gauge. We didn’t see that kind of report on the EEZ, so went with it. We also were aware of a glowing review of the EEZ from dear & trusted friends of ours, Cherie & Chris of Technomadia, and that sealed the deal for us. Hope this helps!

      1. It really does. Thank you…. Lastly, is it safe to assume that the options are anti-theft or flow-through….. not both?

          Great! Glad to be of help, Carl. And on the anti-theft/flow-through question… nope! You can get kits with a mix of flow-through (for the RV) and anti-theft (for the towed). So, for instance, our 12-sensor kit, if we’d gotten the “Mix” version, would have had 8 flow-through sensors for on the RV, and 4 anti-theft sensors for the car. They do that because the flow-through sensors are bigger & heavier… and so they can cause problems with the rubber/flexible valve stems typically installed on cars. If your car has rigid valve stems, you could go with all flow-through. You can check out all the options EEZ offers on Amazon: https://amzn.to/324rwkz

  5. 1. Are the sensors smaller than PressurePro?
    2. PressorPro gave constant erratic results with airbags on Class C. Would go high then low. Any comments?

      Hi Gene! The sensors are indeed smaller, and lighter, than PressurePro. The marks on our Honda’s wheel that we showed in the video were from the larger, heavier PressurPro sensors. The EEZ sensors actually LOOK larger than they are when you see them in photos, because they always show them with the “anti-theft” caps on. We don’t bother with those, as you can use them or not, as desired. As far as the erratic results, we didn’t have that issue with ours. Our primary issue was tire drop-outs, with no apparent rhyme or reason as to which tires would report and which wouldn’t.

      1. The pressure pro sensor is 1” long. Any idea about the EEZ sensor? My class c front tire stem holes are extremely small. The Pressor Pro sensor is right to the top when first starting to thread on.
        By the way, I have labeled each PressorPro sensor base with a lead pencil identifier. The pencil label identifier has never rubbed off on the sensor black coating in over 6 years.

  6. Have had TPMS systems on the motorcycles for last 15 years, the cars since new and my RV since I got it (came built in). The TPMS have alerted me a few times – once after a leak started, twice for extreme temperature.

    They are worth every dollar.

    Of course when the RVgeeks upgrade to their 2022 NewAire (ha ha) the standard package includes the TPMS system ‘for free’.

  7. Like your review but I’ll stick to and recommend the RViBrake’s Tire Patrol. Their newest system of integrating the TPMS, toad battery manager/monitor, braking system, and leveler, plus a handy trip checklist all on one display has been serving us very well for the past 3 years. We started with the TPMS only and as our other systems aged out or we found we wanted a bit more, we were able to add the other features seamlessly. The android based display with wifi communications make for easy software updates and nothing, I mean nothing, beats having all 10 (for us) tires show up on the screen at one time with an easy toggle between psi, temperature, and signal strength. We have yet to find a system as easy to set up.

      Hi Dennis! Great to hear that you’re so happy with your system. If all of our other towing/braking needs weren’t already covered by our Roadmaster system, we’d have considered RViBrake for TPMS. But the cost for TPMS alone was far less expensive for those of us not already using RVi to go with an alternate system. Obviously, we’re very happy with our EEZ, too. Great to know there are good choices out there. Safe travels!

    2. The problem with RVi is when the command center quits working you loose everything.My command center lasted just out of the warranty period.The replacements cost $100.00 + The usb cords are real flimsy and didn’t last too long.

      We used to use those before we got our TPMS… and they work great. We considered using them with the flow-through sensors, but since the flow-through sensors are fairly long/tall… and these inflate-through caps are tall, too… we thought it might be too much. Glad to hear it’s working for you, though! Thanks for sharing!

  8. As far as the numbers on the monitors I coated mine with the wife’s clear nail polish. Has held up thru high power washers and commercial detailers for a good 3 yrs.
