We have an EEZ. I have no experience with any other TPMS, so have nothing to compare it to. It works. My only comment is that there's a slight variance in the pressure readings from each of our 6 tires. Two or 3 will be right on the mark. But, the rest will usually show a 2-3 lbs difference, and maybe that's standard for the industry and to be expected. I carefully fill each tire to the prescribed pressure and check them with the same gauge. All will read exactly the same on my pressure gauge but get different readings that are 2-3 lbs above or below what I've set the tires to. It hasn't caused any real problem for us, its just there. One of our tire sensors went bad and EEZ quickly sent a replacement at no charge. Only other observation I have is that they say the individual batteries in each sensor should last up to 2 years. Not so, in my experience. I've had to replace ours after about 9 months. Batteries are way cheaper ordering them off Internet and they are easy to change. I've seen others post that they change their's annually, which is probably a good idea.

Tire Minder use it on the coach, tow dolly and toad. Works great and they have great customer support if you have a question or problem.

I have a Tire Minder (TM 77) for my coach, tow dolly and toad. In my opinion, they provide outstanding support. Earlier this summer I had a sensor fault on a dolly sensor. I called them and they sent a replacement sensor, spare batteries, to the address of my next stop, free of charge. Swapped it out and sent the old one back postage prepaid. Just my 2 cents worth.

Just like oldchief, I have no experience with others but have been very pleased with EEZTire. Easy to install, always connects within a couple of minutes of startup, easy to read display, shows psi and temp of each tire. Worth every penny, to me.

Forgot to mention that TPMS systems offer repeaters(boosters), for coaches or trailers that are extra long. I can turn my EEZTIRE on while inside my house and get readings from 100' from the rv.

Dang - looks like the choices are tire minder and EEZ...

EEZ looks a bit more complicated but offers a solar option.
Tire minder looks easier to install...

Is the only difference with “pass thru” that you don’t need to remove them to add air?

Yes, that would be the only difference. For the record, I haven't needed to add an ounce of air since I put my tpms system on.

There is nothing complicated about EEZ Tire, in my opinion. The directions are very clear and you simply pair up each transponder to the base unit. Since the base unit has its own batteries, you can do this at each tire, rather than running back and forth to the cab. The longest part for me was dealing with the locking anti-theft gizmos on each unit. After hearing from enough people to soothe my nerves, I took them off. Now, they're a piece of cake to remove, if you need to.

I have the TST 507. Don't have experience with any other system to compare it to, but it seems to be very accurate and I like the color display.

I went with EEZ over 2 years ago. The most complicated part was installing the dash mount.

I use Tire Minder for RV tow dolly and rear toad tires. Have used it for a year now with no issues. When I first installed it I had some questions so I called them, they have great coustomer service and are here in Florida.

Really? You must live where temps are a lot more stable than in Michigan. I have to adjust my tire pressure at least twice a year as overnight temps vary from 40 to 90. I am wondering what pressure to set at when we head south in March since hopefully within a day or two we will see much higher temps.

I simply turn the ignition on about 10 minutes before we are about to move on. Five minutes later the 8 monitored tires are registering their respective pressures. If any are out of my desired range, I adjust the pressures. I find the ride and handling change is noticeable if the tire pressures are off by more than a little. I like to see my front tires exactly at 75 psi (Sumitomo 245/70-19.5, 14 ply), but I can except a much higher pressure than ideal pressures on the others.
Tire pressures are critical in the summer in south Texas as the pavement is black and pavement temperatures often reach 150 degrees. If the pressures are set at 85 psi on the inside rear in the morning in the 75 degree shade, I will see a 110 psi at 4 pm on a 100+ day.

I bought one this year and went with TST 507.

Easy to install & works great, even when I'm towing my Jeep.

I like our TST 507 on our S.O.B. too. Bought it on Amazon....
