Smart Tire TMPS

I have a 2008 Alpine Coach with the Smart Tire system on it. I want to add it to my Toad but find that Smart Tire has stopped building or supporting the system on motor homes. Does anyone have a source for the Toad portion of the system or know of an alternative compatible system other than Smart Tire.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thanks for the info! Thinking back, I bought our coach from Guaranty RV in Junction City and a guy at Les Schwab worked on the Smart Tire system which wasn't working properly. He claimed to be the world expert on Smart Tire and said that the dealership was one of only a few who were experts in the system. I'll give them a call.

Dickman bought all the remaining stock of that design and holds exclusive rights as well.

I installed new tire sensors on the coach last year when I replaced the tires. I have a set of new sensors for the Buick Enclave we bought this year so I am good to go until the sensor batteries go dead in maybe 5 years. Then what? Maybe I won't care or remember.

When Dickman/Schwab replaced our tires a couple years ago they checked the sensors and at that time they said they should last 10 years, not 5. Ours are 5 years old and doing fine.

My theory is if one fails and you can't get the warning light/buzzer to go off, you can just check the air pressure manually then pull the power to the thing until you get some place when you replace the sensor. I've learned that works well when warning buzzers get too annoying.
