Part number 201.0007N for $62.99. They have 12 in stock. Talk to Polly the manager if you have any questions.
IASM: This is much better price than Kevin Waite quoted me ($80)! Would they reprogram the unit as well? Thanks,

Doran was a rebadged Pressure Pro system. Doran no longer sells them.
Even though I was a Pressure Pro distributor/dealer I don't know if the Doran sensors could interface with the Silverleaf systems. You do have to buy a new interface unit too.

IIRC, when I last spoke to the folks at Silverleaf they told me they could reprogram my in-dash Silverleaf monitor to receive signals from several of the tire pressure monitoring systems.

My Smart Tire monitors seem to still be working at nearly 8 years of life. It is nice to have and certainly better than the TST system I had on my previous coach. Not sure what I will do when the wheel sensors start to fail.

Fleetpride only sells parts. I know they can re-program in junction city but am unsure of other locations around the country. Im going to call silverleaf tomorrow to get some clarification as to what can be done with there program.

Well, that is not surprising as Smart Tire (The system installed on our CCs) are not made anymore. I think we just lucked out that the sensors from the new system are still compatible with ours!

Did they say which system/sensors their systems will support? I understand Smart Tire is still in business for the OTR trucking industry but no longer supports the RV market. It would seem the same sensors that work on OTR trucks would work just fine on our rigs

I think the sensors are the same so the only missing link is the programing, I have the part number for the programmer unit so I will be checking the cost and availability tomorrow. Silverleaf said they are supporting the pressure pro.

Stay with Smartire or?

I am negotiating on an 05 CC Allure which I believe has the original Smartire system. The coach needs tires and, at 10yrs, the sensors need to be replaced. According to the seller, one sensor has just failed. The question is, stay with the Smartire sensors or go with a system such as EEZRV TPMS which I currently on my coach and toad? These sensors have replaceable batteries and are attached to the valve stems. My plan was to transfer the EEZRV system to the CC. Is there any good reason for Keeping the Smartire system which will mean buying 12 sensors for the coach and toad at $83 each or $1000 or staying?

I understand Smartire no longer supports their RV model which is another consideration. Also, I guess Silverleaf refers to the indash display or monitor?

I am sure what you mean when you say there is no other TPMS that can do what smart tire does? You may remember that Smart tire was in Camping World for a very short time before they were quickly removed, due to multiple problems. This was also before they owned by Bendix. I have heard to many horror stories of bands breaking inside the tire with Smart tire.

I think what I am saying is I currently have a system on my coach that works very well which includes the toad. The seller of the CC I am negotiating on is planning on replacing all sensors when the tires are changed out with Smartire. So, basically I will have a coach with the Smartire system and a toad with the EEZRV system or opt to spend $600 on Smartire sensors for the toad to be uniform. $600 was the quote I got from the Smartire vendor for sensors, bands, installation and programming. I would rather keep my EEZRV system on the toad and save some money. Just had to know more about the Smartire system to decide.

While I understand each installation maybe different, I can share my experience that is I just replaced all eight sensors in my tires and and the straps are all stainless steel and no need to be replaced. Just the sensors! There are a lot of "hear say" opinions and sometimes they maybe what they are, "hear say"!
All the best!
