If a caliper starts dragging (not a very common occurrence), the heat will increase the air pressure within the tire. With a PressurePro system, once that increase reaches 30%, the high pressure alarm will go off, the alert level is user adjustable if you need a narrower or larger warning range. You won't need to check anything, the alert is automatic.

the tst system offers both high/low pressure, and temp settings. if a caliper is dragging the temp is going to show up alot faster than the tire pressure increase will.   I guess the thread is like the difference between gas/diesel. everyone will have their own op's.  With that said, I'll stick with mine, you stick with yours, and we can Imagine that ours is the best ;D or cheapest ;D

Just became a TST dealer first of June.

Sounds like you might have a vested interest in promoting TST products. If so, I'd refer you to our forum rules (click the Rules button above). Neither Pressure Pro nor any of their dealers has come close to crossing the line.

You won't need to check anything, the alert is automatic.

Sounds like it is very similar to the TST, though the TST gives you an automatic alarm either by tire air pressure or tire air temperature. If it wasn't due to my concern with the calipers hanging up on my MH, I'm sure any system available would work perfectly. I felt at the time I decided to buy a TMPS that the tire air temperature was an important feature, though for most, the air pressure alarm probably suits them perfectly.

Myself, I don't rep or sell any TMPS, so my only purpose is to simply recommend the use of any brand of TMPS's on RV's for safety reasons; I just happend to choose TST. (Guess I'm a little behind; just did a Google and found federal law that starting with the 2008 model-year, 'light vehicles' are required to have a TMPS.)

As to calipers not dragging very often, when I dropped off my MH today at Workhorse (intermittent problem with the fuel sending unit; quoted $1,700 to replace the sending unit and fuel pump, which is two separate parts in one unit, so WH recommends replacing both at the same time due to the labor costs), the service writer told me that WCC is having to replace the calipers on approximately 4,000 chassis, times 4 calipers per MH... that's a lot of Bosch calipers. And he said even worse, all the calipers that WCC has already replaced and refunds issued, all those calipers will have to be replaced with the new design. He told me, hopefully tongue in cheek, that some owners might be another two-years out getting replacements due to parts availbility and the required shop time.

Tom, I have had a certain Pressure Pro salesman on this site send me a personal message promoting his product. He also questioned me about why I would want to go with TST. I was only too glad to fill him in. I for one do not have a vested interest in TST. I simply compared for my own purpose and liked what I saw in TST.

Vested interest? not really, If you've read most of my post, I'm also a super steer dealer too, and a interstate battery dealer too. I have never sold any of these to anyone on the internet.  I become dealers for many things, that get me a better deal on products. If I have a good customer(locally) and they ask about it, I will sell to them.  So please don't assume that you know what my interest are.  I believe as stated before that the tst system is better, and depending on the package you choose, even cheaper, and offers more info, which I also believe more info the better.

So as far as crossing a line If free speech is a problem here on the friendliest place on the web, please let me know and I will move on. kevin

Thanks for the clarification Kevin.
