I have a couple of TMS in vehicles no need for me to buy one Belfert I still think you could get a false sense of security depending on the system they are electronic, with all the problems you have every year I can see your point about the TMS

Hell, I'm with all the above, have the Pressure Pro setup, took about a year before I got a working system (non leaking) out of them, was informed by the P-P customer rep that I simply was too stupid to screw them on.  Well after I urchased the new seal kit with the little sawed off nut driver tool, I have not had any more problems.  Think P-P finally got a seal that works.
Ever since, they have been acting very good, just installed a new set of Michelin 275/80R22.5 LRH  XZE-3+ and hoping hey will be my last go around for tires.  By the time they age out, I will be 79, so you get the picture.

Question on installing the PP on your toad.  The instructions say you need metal valve stems.  Do you have new metal stems installed on your toad tires?

The best we came up with for the toad was the high pressure stems, mostlt metal but some rubber.  Point. Is, they have worked good on my F150 for 35,000+ miles.

I tow a trailer with the bus.  I had metal stems put on the trailer wheels for about $38 for all four.

How many here use the valve stem stabilizer for the inside dual where the valve stem comes through the outside wheel using the Pressure Pro ?

The one area I found to be a weak area is using the extensions for the inside dual.
I ordered the 8" stems with the nut on the outside of steel rim, Outter is the Alcoa and I use the rubber snubber to hold the 8" stem securely so the screw on sensor does not flop arund.  My problem with the screw on externsions, they tended to leak sometimes.  Why I went with the one piece 8" stems, no more issues YET.
The 8"stems are hard to find, once you find them, they are plentiful and most any length you like.

Tire pressure monitoring systems TPMS are ubiquitous these days. Nearly all are the same or very similar. I like the systems that show both pressure and temperature - although the temp sensor is typically on the end of the valve stem. Better placement obviously would be inside the tire. I find them useful information although I've had a few false positives on temperature. In one year I had one sensor fail and deflate a tire while parked. I still do a walk around a few times each day on the road. I would avoid the 'through the sensor' type sensors that allow you to fill the tire w/o removing the sensor. My experience is that they do not always allow enough air to pass through. I usually just unscrew the sensor to fill.
