Ford 2019 super duty ome Tpms

Has anyone had an issue with using ford ome Tpms system for a fifth wheeler ?
Iím Iím wondering if there is enough cable length/slack for the cable that runs from the bumper cable plug to the king pin area .
Im also thinking to run the trailer end of the cable from where the kingpin is thru to the forward storage compartment then down through the propane storage then along the frame .
Any better ideas or suggestions.
Much appreciated.

You will find the vast majority on here use TST tire pressure system. I am not familiar with Ford’s system. Is it hardwired all the way to the axle? Also, does the Ford TPMS do temperature and pressure? I personally think you need both. I am sure someone will chime in with more info, but the TST has been so successful that it has become the most recommended brand. Keystone now adds TST standard on new Montana’s.

Yes itís hard wired to the axle where the receiver is then mounted .
A camera is also able to be plugged in from there ..
No it does not measure the tire temperature.
The tst system sounds goo too .
I just like the idea that tire info come up in my dash display.
Ahh what to do .

We had considered the ford tpms also in the beginning, but it is not cost effective and every ford dealership we talked to had never even heard of it much less installed one. In my opinion you are better off going wireless like most of us, and as mentioned it does not monitor temp, only pressure.

I looked at the Ford system for my 2019 F250 when I purchased the truck. I was hoping that it was a wireless system, but no. I decided to continue using my eezRV wireless system from my trailering days. Works well, reliably providing warning when necessary. I recommend wireless always. My unit does not require a repeater, although one is available.

The Ford system does monitor temperature. At least my 2022 does. Mine plugs into the 12 pin plug that’s in the bed. This connection also includes the camera and the yaw sensor for the pro trailer backup system. The TPMS portion of this system is only a short wire that locates the sensor in the front of the camper. It doesn’t go to the axle. I replaced a TST system with the Ford system. I would be happy with either but I like not having to have an extra monitor in the cab. I’ll probably use the TST for another trailer.
