Doran 360 RV Pressure Monitoring System

I have a Doran 360 RV Pressure Monitoring System which is a little over 2 years old. I started having pressure sensors going bad. I sent one to Doran to have it checked out and they said the sensor seal had failed. They stated this was not unusual for this to happen, even after 2 years. Their solution was to purchase replacement sensors for $30 each plus shipping as the warrnty was only good for 2 years. Replacing all 8 sensors will cost over $250. Doesn't sound like a good investment for something with a 2 year life.
Any thoughts or similar experiences?

You bet I have thoughts and similar experiences!

Mine is also just over two years old and I've now had three fail. I've quit recommending this unit because of this.

Have had this system for a little over two years. Two sensors replaced under warranty, failed seals. They claim the seals fail if you tighten them too much.

I have replaced 3 sensors after 2 years, 2 units would not connect to the monitor, the other leaked. I concluded that if any more fail I will be going to another system.

Back when Doran sold the Pressure Pro system I bought from them. Their service was so bad I started going directly to Pressure Pro. For me, I will purchase nothing from Doran.

Similiar experience. 2-yrs old in April 11, 2-sensors failed, replaced by warranty,overtightening blammed. Frustrating to have failed sensors or lost sensor and not know if tire is failing. On the good side, customer service is always available and very helpful. Experience is about the same with all other products for my MH which is another story.

Doran update

I just heard from Doran. They have decided to replace my bad sensor at no cost and check my others which are acting up and replace if needed.
Guess they figured it was best to stand behind their product.

Ed,

I just knew they would stand behind their product when the rubber hits the road. Two years and failed sensors due to seal failures is a but much to accept.

Hopefully, Debbi, the RV Sales Associate, was the one that stepped up to the plate to offer you the free sensor and to check the others.

She has always come through for me even though the technical people claimed that my failed sensor was within spec's. I don't think so, as the one that Debbi had sent to me for a replacement has worked flawlessly for the last 4000 miles coming back from Alaska without a "lost signal" or no signal at all, which is what my old one was giving me for the first 4000 miles going up to Alaska.

Same experience with Doran 360 here. Two sensors died just after two years, cost $50 to get just one shipped. Took the other off the towed. Disappointed in sensor life and the fact that battery can not be replaced or switched off. Two other sensors are likely near their end of life after three years, as they were intermitent while traveling in the Fall. Doran wants the user to remove the sensors when stored, not an easy job for ten sensors with 3 set screws each. Display also has no way to adjust contrast so off-angle, even by a few degrees, means dim LCD viewing.

In my opinion removing the sensors is not the answer I wanted to hear, we use out unit off and on year around, so we are out of luck. Like I said in an earlier posting, if sensors continue to fail, and I am sure they will, goodbye Doran.

Happy Cutomer. I have had my Pressure Pro for over four years without any problems. I had one sensor fail and it was replaced free of charge. I bought mine from the dealer in Wickengurg, AZ. It coild be that I have had such good luck with the sensors is that he has a fresh stock of sensors. I also understand that Camping World sells sensors with relaceable batteries that are compatible with the Pressure Pro. I have not verified that but when I have a sensor fail I will buy one and see if it works.
