Tire Pressure Monitoring System Troubleshooting

Tire blowouts are one of the leading causes of accidents. Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) are designed to alert drivers when a tire’s air pressure is low or high, providing both safety and convenience. However, RV owners should be aware that a TPMS can cause tires to develop leaks. This happens when the tire’s rubber stem valve gradually wears out from the centrifugal force of the system’s sensors. Learn more from Wandering America’s experience with this problem and learn how they fixed it in Togo RV’s latest installment of RV Mishaps.
