Tymate TPMS for 6 wheels ??

Has anyone used a Tymate TPMS monitor designed for 6 wheels on either 4 or 5 wheels?

Might be helpful if you explained what the 'heck' you're talking about.

I was running my four wheel version on two wheels only for awhile, worked fine, the unused channels just don't show any reading.

Do you recall if you had to take the sensor batteries out? I'm concerned about the alarm going off because the sensor could be reading zero pressure? Thanks.

No this is not necessary, if a sensor is not transmitting the receiver have no information about this channel, the display for this sensor is going to be blank. I noticed when powering up the receiver after the trailer did not move for a while, the display is blank until the sensors wake up and start transmitting.

I also noticed that the sensors start transmitting as they get attached to the wheels, probably because of the sudden pressure.
