I received my new Smart Tire system from the Indiegogo campaign last week and I’m very disappointed with it. For starters, the biggest problem is that I got it for my camper tires and it doesn’t work. Apparently the range isn’t enough even though it’s only like 21 feet from my open truck window to the front tires on my trailer. I know Amazon sells a TPMS range extender for things like big long trucks, would this work with the ZUS system?
For some reason even though the green lights are flashing and the app reads 0.0 PSI because the range isn’t good enough, they seemed to receive a temperature signal at some point because after the trip home and the days heat, all four read between 84 and 90 degrees. It had only been in the 50’s early in the morning.
One cap already cracked after one days use.
The first time I tried to use it, one sensor had seemed to leak and one of my trailer tires had dropped to 18psi when we arrived at our destination. It was okay on the way home after I really super tightened them all.
I know for a fact they were all what I thought was tight enough before the trip where one leaked because I double checked them all right before I left.
