Big Trip and several questions.


We will be heading out West next spring on a 8 month tour of the National Parks.In the process we expect to rack up a lot of road miles both on our tow vehicle and our 5th wheel. Till now we have gotten along fine with out a monitoring system but feel it's the right time to get this in place before we go. First question; Do you have a tire pressure monitoring system? and what system do you have and why. Second question; Do you have a roadside assistance plan? Which plan(s) do you have and why did you choose that particular plan? We have a 2014 F450 dully with hauler body and a 2014 New Horizon fiver. Any and all help and suggestions are appreciated.

We have the TST 507 tire monitoring system, which we have been happy with. We found that we needed their repeater; I know others that use the same tire monitoring system without the need for a repeater.

Regarding road side assistance, we have Coachnet. For us, given our size, weight and that we are full-timers, we would not consider going without a service. Not only for the potential cost saving reasons, but they also have a network of mobile techs they can contact if you have an issue ... although you will need to be very clear on your size and weight, if you ever need towing assistance. The only time we have used their services in two years, was when we were locked out of the RV (due to an issue with our door lock). It was very helpful to have Coachnet -- we initially tried to find a mobile locksmith on our own (asking at the campground, performing google searches, making phone calls, etc.) and were unsuccessful --- once we contacted Coachnet, they had a mobile locksmith headed to us shortly after we contacted them (although the mobile lock smith did not have experience working on RVs, he solved our problem) and the cost was fully covered by our Coachnet plan.

Another thing you might consider is an auxiliary fuel tank for the truck, if you do not have one already and have the weight capacity. We find ours invaluable, particularly when we are traveling multiple days in a row and/or in more remote areas.

We also have the TST 507 flow thru monitoring system. Would not travel without a TP and Temp monitoring system. We has Good Sam's Roadside Assistance and have used it once and while expensive it was OK.

We also used Coachnet and had to call them several times. For Tows and tires. We were very pleased.

We have TPMS ...sorry not sure what brand. My husband swears by it. We had Good Sam and have used them twice. It takes a long time for them to get someone to you but when the people do come they have been competent.
