tire pressure monitoring system

I have a 2018 Vegas and would like to add a tire pressure monitoring system.
Has anyone done so and what brand would you recommend?
TIA

There are a couple of threads out there on this already and you will get several response supporting about 3 of them. I have an EZE tire when I did my research I just liked this one, have had it for a year now and have had no issues with it. Very easy installation, set up and customer support was great the 2 times I called them on a question.

Ive used tire minder for the past 6 years with my 5th wheel. Never had a problem until i got the motorhome. Worked with customer service, Todd, and did an upgrade for cheap. Works great again. You cant go wrong with either of them

I use the Tire Minder and it has been reliable as an anvil. Does not report precise pressure but it is close and consistent so I can tell if there is a problem. Also the Tire Minder people seem awfully nice if you happen to have a question.

There are several good ones on the market. I've had the same system for several years. It has user changeable batteries and flow thru sensors. It has served me very well on 2 fivers and now on my Challenger.

IMHO it is about the most important piece of safety equipment you can have on an RV.

I use the EEZ TPMS and consider it one of the best purchases I've made for my Challenger. Very easy setup and install. Monitors pressure and tire temperatures and has user defined high and low alarms.

I bought the Doran with 10 sensors to cover my toad. Just after the warranty ran out (2 years) batteries started to fail. In fairness, they did replace one of them but I may be looking at replacing more here soon. The guy suggested a signal extender. Great, another expense and something else to wire in and have fail. NOT!
