Does anyone have any experience using the DILL Trailer TPMS system sold by TIRERACK or had a good/bad experience with any other vendors TPMS system for trailers?

Trailer TPMS
I have had TST monitors on my trailer for about a year now. They work fine, except one of them was leaking air until I used some teflon plumbers tape on the stem threads.

The DILL system looks interesting because it monitors both tire temperature and pressure. I am worried about the range of the system – a long bed with a long horse trailer. There is no OEM TPMS on a dually so interference is not an issue.

Thanks….

I have been looking at TPMS for my trailer for over a year now. I have looked at high priced ones, low priced ones and in-between. I love the idea and I like the idea of temp as well as pressure but really pressure is going up if temp goes up so not convinced you need it.

But the thing that really keeps me from pulling the trigger is I have yet to have anybody tell me that it saved their [email protected]# and I have asked that exact question. I have suffered 3 tire failures from tread separation and I would just like one person to step up and say my TPMS showed an over temperature or over pressure and sure enough I check the tires and found a tread starting to separate. But so far all I have heard is I love my ….. In the meantime I continue with my current ritual of zapping every tire and bearing on the trailer with a laser thermometer and giving the tread a quick once over at every gas stop.

I have the dill system on my triaxle fifth wheel. It was on it when I bought it but I'm not sure how accurate it is. Its a 38' trailer with a crew cab long bed in front of it. The dealer where I bought my trailer set it up for me, but I haven't been using it.

You need togo to one of the forums that campers use. Like Montana or such. You will find some stories in there. Mine alerted me to some low pressure, that can really destroy a tire.
