Truck and Trailer TPMS

Tire Pressure Monitoring for Trailers, RVs, Automobiles, and Trucks up to 10 wheels


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Can this system be used on a passenger car?
•Yes


Can this system be used on a 6-wheel pickup?
•Yes


Can this system be used on an RV?
•Yes


Can this system be used on a 2-wheel motorcycle?
•No


Can this system be used on an ATV or UTV?
•The answer is dependent on the application's recommended tire pressure. We do not recommend installing this system on any application that requires a cold inflation tire pressure of less than 25psi.


Can I install the Dill Trailer TPMS kit myself with a basic set of hand tools?
•It is not recommended. While the Dill Trailer TPMS tire pressure display unit can be installed in a vehicle with no tools, the process required to install the internally-mounted tire pressure sensors should be performed by a trained tire technician using tire servicing equipment.


Can my trusted tire shop install your system?
•Most likely, yes. If your tire shop is familiar with factory Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems on 2008+ model year vehicles, then installing the Dill tire pressure sensors will not be a challenge.


Can the Dill Trailer TPMS monitor the original factory sensors on my tow vehicle?
•No, the tire pressure display unit can only be used to monitor the Dill Trailer TPMS tire pressure sensors included in the kit. Dill Trailer TPMS tire pressure sensors, however, can be mounted in your tow vehicle's wheel if tire pressure monitoring is desired.


Will the Dill Trailer TPMS kit cause problems with my vehicles factory TPMS?
•No


Can my vehicle's factory TPMS read the Dill Trailer TPMS tire pressure sensors?
•No


Can the Dill tire pressure display monitor multiple tires that require different recommended cold inflation pressures?
•Yes. During the initial setup of the system, each Dill Trailer TPMS tire pressure sensor-equipped position can be programmed to monitor a different baseline cold inflation pressure. For example, the Dill system can accurately monitor the front and rear tires of a tow vehicle (60psi front, 75psi rear) and the tires on a trailer (50psi).


Are the pressure warning levels adjustable?
•No. The Low Tire Pressure Warning is preset to 20% below the user-set baseline tire pressure. The High Tire Pressure Warning is preset to 30% above the user-set baseline tire pressure.


Are the tire pressures monitored while the vehicle/trailer is parked?
•Yes


Can I monitor a spare tire?
•Yes, but keep in mind the tire pressure display unit only shows an even number of tire positions (2, 4, 6, 8, or 10). If you add a single spare, there will be one position that will not be used and when the display unit cycles to that position "Err" will display, but there will not be an audible warning.


Can the Dill Trailer TPMS detect a tire blowout?
•No. Tire pressure sensors can only transmit freely when they are under pressure.


Will I need the long magnetic antenna?
•The Dill Trailer TPMS has a radio frequency range of 40ft line-of-sight. With various materials in between the monitored tire and dash-mounted display unit, interference is possible. If reception is intermittent when using the short antenna, we recommend installing the long magnetic antenna or purchasing the Dill Trailer TPMS Signal Booster.


Where should the long magnetic antenna be installed if my application requires it?
•We recommend attaching the magnetic antenna to the bottom of the rear bumper hitch which would keep it in line with the sensors/tires.


Can I use the system with two different trailers?
•Yes, but the process of setting up the display unit to work on multiple trailers will depend on several factors. Please call us if this is a requirement.
