2. You have one tire lose most of its air and your TMPS alarm may not trip. I am not sure if the check valve closes whether there will still be pressure from the good tire at the valve stem.

3. You can't monitor the pressure in both tires to make sure the Crossfire is working properly.

4. You can't monitor the temperature of each tire in case one is overheating and possibly close to a failure.

It was worth it to me to purchase the Crossfire with the TPMS option so I could still monitor the pressure and temperatures of all 6 tires.
That is my thought exactly also. I'm going to get the crossfire but need to decide if I'm going to resurrect my EEZtire system or go with the RVi system and reduce my dash clutter.

You can get the Crossfire valve and they offer ss hoses for the addition of two TPMS transmitters and they will monitor each tire. I have a Tireminder TPMS system and have been thinking about adding the Crossfire equalizers.

2nd trip with the crossfire installed and I think it needs some wheel balancing help. Around 65 there is an occasional light vibration in the seat/frame indicative of rear balancing problems. I'm not surprised because even though each tire is individually balanced, the whole assembly can't, and now that assembly has the crossfire and tpms on it. When I had my DP I put on Centramatics and was very satisfied with them. I don't think the front needs them so just the rear. I need to rotate the outer tire 1 lug position in order to get the hoses positioned so they don't rub the rim. At that time I'll put on the centramatic balancers. In the interim I got some clear plastic hose, 1/2"ID, spiral cut it and slipped on the braided hoses. Held in place with zip ties.
