Motorhome accessory review: Michelin TPMS

85ec2f9e-e6ce-4571-89b6-88d48534392e

We all have checklists before setting off: rooflights down, gas off, fridge on 12V... however, there should be at least one other thing – tyre pressure check. There are devices that warn you when your tyre pressures get too low, rather than you having to check them. Built-in TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring systems) can be problematic when you try and adjust the pressures to suit the weight of your motorhome. However, good aftermarket systems allow you to set the ideal pressures and then it will alert you when it drops too low.

This system (suitable for pressures up to 86psi) has been around for a few years, but the new version now has a display that shows the tyre pressures (easier to check) rather than just an indication that the pressure has dropped. This LCD screen is solar powered too, so doesn’t need topping up with batteries.

You get four sensors and a display, then it’s just a matter of replacing your valve caps with the sensors. You can also add a further four sensors, allowing all six wheels of a tag axle or twin rear wheel, or those of a trailer to be monitored.

It costs £79.95 for the four-sensor kit, while the extra four sensors cost £44.95. Buy it at the website below or through Amazon, eBay or RoadPro.

 This was named Product of the Month in the June issue of MMM.
