  • TPMS for 27-5L

    We have the TPMS on our F350 Superduty 6.7 SRW 4x4 KR and thought it could be added to the Arctic Fox but find that is not true, too short and not mods available. If any of you have this configuration, what, if any, type of TPMS have you used?

    We have the Ford trailer camera & trailer TPMS on our 27-5L. We had to buy aftermarket parts from Nichols Manufacturing and Welding to make it work with a fifth wheel.

        We purchased the Nichols Straight Harness & Mounting Box Kit. If you want to be able to use the TPMS with any type of trailer, you need to buy the Nichols Y-Harness & Mounting Box Kit and a second 7/12-Pin Connector Plug. We also bought enough Harness Spiral Wrap to bundle the 7 pin and 12 pin harnesses together.

        We mounted the TPMS receiver under the batteries. There are holes in that area that are perfect for this. We then used screw down wiring harness clips to run the harness up the front of the fifth wheel using the screws in the frame of the front compartment. We used adhesive wiring harness clips to run the wiring harness from the top of the compartment to the king pin box. The clips were purchased at a hardware store.

        We had Les Schwab install the TPMS sensors. They also checked the tire balance at the same time.

          Thanks for all your information. Just heard that Nichols might be out of business-is that true?

            I found a post on Ford Truck Enthusiasts from yesterday from a person who ordered from Nichols and was expecting the delivery from them today.

                The stems that came with the Ford TPMS and camera kit fit the factory wheels on our 2018 27-5L.

                          I have used Tireminder which monitors tire pressure and temperatures systems for 9 years with great satisfaction on my previous trailers. When I got the 2018 Arctic Fox 27.5 5th wheel my wife insisted I get a newer system. I got their TM-77 with a booster as I was getting interference from other wireless systems. The new system works better than I expected and now allows me to monitor the tires on the three trailers I own with out having to change sensors from trailer to trailer( it only took more sensors). The old Tireminder has been retired to my 1999 Miata.

                          I have also installed a wireless four camera back up system from Tadi Bros. Two cameras are on the back. One is for the rear hitch area and the second is for approaching traffic. The other two cameras are for each side of the trailer which truly eliminates a blindside while backing.
