Juzplanekrazy So nobody has just tried the TPMS Sensors only? I get the package has a booster of sorts. But can't see it has to be used. Heck if my old TPMS from TST worked with out a booster, these in tire stems sure should at $60-$80 bucks each. I just can't see paying $500 bucks +/- for all that wiring and not need it.

Juzplanekrazy I see the threads a year old. I didn't see a end result.
I'm wanting to install TPMS sensors for my trailer tires as well. I have a 2 axle.
Everything I can find shows you I just have to buy 4 ea part number TPMS47. Install them/Pair them using dash controls and thats it.
I'm not sure what would be need in the cam,tpms set up for the tires.

Anybody just done tires for trailer with only using TPMS sensors.

Jesus_man I think the factory TPMS system will monitor up to 3 extra axles IIRC.

mcintoshjr Me too but did not have this as an option, If anyone has a broken tail light I need it to get the camera/sensor out and install in my flatbed.
Is there any technical bulletin or info explaining the system and its parts?

User Name I'd like to add this too. But I have 3 axle trailer. Not sure they support this ?

Phillippeterson Hmmm. Me thinks the TPMS sensor is part of the cable. So, you'd need to install the cable. And you don't have to install the camera. I'm not using the TPMS but am using the camera.

Just don't plug in the camera and wrap the extra cable into a loop and zip tie it out of the way.

The cable carries the camera info (which you don't want, so don't plug in the camera) and it carries the TPMS info.

You do need to install the pigtail so the info will get to the truck instrument information.

skypilot Phillippeterson: I've got the camera and TPMS sensors still in the box. Please excuse my lack of mechanical skills, but as I recall the instructions, you have to install the cable for the camera for the TPMS to work. I don't need the camera so I've not researched it further. So, my question, do you have to run the pigtail into the truck bed and the transmitter to the pin box, or are the sensors powerful enough to work without those things?

Phillippeterson Even if you ordered the trailer TPMS when you bought the truck it would still be an "after the fact" option. It comes in a box and you install it. Pretty easy to install. It's plug and play.

Adding trailer TPMS after the fact

I didn't get the trailer TPMS when I ordered the truck, but kinda want it now. Is it as simple as just getting the sensors and pairing them to the truck or is there additional hardware that the truck needs?
