TyrePal https://www.tyrepal.co.uk/home/ have kindly agreed to a 20% discount across their whole range for Fun & RVOC members with code MFRVOC19TP (y)
We wouldn’t be without TyrePal TPMS fitted on both our car & motorhome (even though they have already have the Ford & Citroen factory fitted version) as the display makes checking all the tyre pressures easy (including the spare with an extra sensor) & the early warning it can give could help avoid an accident. Our motive for negotiating the discount & posting about this accessory regularly is to encourage Funsters to fit some form of TPMS & hopefully travel safer as a result.
Other benefits of keeping a close check on tyre pressures include better fuel economy & road handling plus some insurers (including C&CC & Caravanguard) now offer a 5% discount for motorhomes fitted with TyrePal. There are cheaper versions available but mixed reviews on these online & we have had TyrePal fitted for several years now & always found it a reliable safety product & there is good back up technical support if it's ever needed.

This is a brilliant kit I fitted it about 3 months ago, and also had already puncture control injected in my tyres.
The instructions say not to use tyrepal with the goo but I’ve had no problems.

We were coming home from North Wales last week when I noticed the front drivers tyre was down to 56 psi then within seconds was down to 53 psi and alarm sounded, but the puncture control sealed at 53 psi and got us home safely.
I’ve checked the tyre and found where the puncture was, reinflated the tyre to 65 psi and holding good.

If not for the tyrepal system I wouldn’t have known that I’d had a puncture at all.

Tyrepal confirmed the sensors were not compatible with aluminium valve stems but didn’t say why. Any ideas ?
Strength of the stem,conductivity ?

Nice one. How does the solar powered unit fit on the dash and do you need the o rings and locking nuts?
The display unit comes with a removable \ reusable sticky mount. The "O" rings are the seals for the sensors on the valve stems and the locking nut makes it a bit more difficult, but not impossible, to remove the sensor from the tyre.

It's to stop galvanic corrosion where the different metals induce increased corrosion of the most reactive metal, ie aluminium in this case.

Just a point, the o rings are spare incase you need new ones when replacing batteries.

Just thinking of getting a TypePAL system as it makes sense to monitor the tyre pressures. However I was looking at the manual and come across this


. ▪ Do not fit sensors to tyres that have been treated with internal tyre sealant. The sealant may damage the sensor or impair its functions. ▪ To avoid danger of damaging the sensors, check that sensor valve caps will not protrude excessively beyond the outside profile of the tyres when fitted.

Has anyone had problems with tyrepal and sealant as I was thinking of fitting both.

Have they definitely extended the discount? I just tried to order the range repeater and their website would not accept the discount code.
Hi - yes it was extended & currently works on the TPMS units but unfortunately not on add on accessories like the repeater - checking their email it is off all of their "systems" which I optimistically worded as off their whole range! Other clubs have just been offered discount off the Solar 4 model only before whereas our discount code applies to all TPMS models as many of the more expensive units are popular with RVOC members. Sorry about that but decent savings to be made on the TPMS units & the most that they offer any club as far as we understand.

I emailed TyrePal and got the response below.

Good morning



Unfortunately we do not recommend using our sensors with tyre sealant. This is due to the fact that the sensors actually open up the valve, so the sealant could actually get into the sensor and damage it



You could of course try using it, but this would be at your own risk

Just had our Tyrepal alert as leaving motorway services - well before the Citroen TPMS - tyre is hissing so now awaiting recovery. So pleased that this product kept us safe - had fitted on both car & motorhome for 5 years now & first time major problem.

£72 for Solar model today without code (doesn't apply to sale items).

Has anyone used with metal valve stems?
I thought it was quite common for metal valve stems on higher pressure C tyres?

Thank you for the heads up on their Sale (y) Although the Fun discount code won't work with discounted prices it might be worth trying the Caravan Club one (if anyone is a member) as that has worked in the past.

Job done.
Good to know that works too! (y) Perhaps you can PM me with the code so that others that want to do this can benefit too or they could PM you direct?

I was initially fascinated by the tyrepal screen - both temperature and pressure. Rear normal pressure 78psi which then on a motorway on a very warm day went up to 91 and the temperature to 41c. Front @ 64 also increased but to 75. I had not realised the pressure would have increased that much but I know not a lot.

Thanks to Wombles and all For the Tyrepal sale info.
Went onto CMC member offers found discount code, then linked through to Tyrepal Sale website, placed order for the solar set, entered CMC code as well and got a further 10% discount, ended up paying £66.95:).
Just hope they are easy to set up when they arrive, and that the solar side of things doesn't need too much sun to keep them fully charged, as we all know about the UK lack of sunshine for too much of the year.
I haven't read any details as yet but if there is a USB option to remotely charge that will be useful also.
Hopefully will feel a lot safer on long runs now.
Cheers everyone, happy safe travels to all.

Yes, it's a bit of an eye-opener when you can see what is happening. My tyres are set to 3.5 and 4.5 bar on Continental's recommendations for my axle weights. Motorway running in hot temps, ie in Spain, pressures can go up to about 3.9 and 5.5 bar respectively. It begs the question that those who just go by the door sticker showing 5.5 bar/79.5 psi all round must be subjecting their tyres to some unnecessary stress?
