I use the TireMinder 66 and love it. It supports 22 different tires and you can set them at different pressures. There is a new TireMinder 77, sold only through Camping World, that can be moved among three different vehicles. Which makes the investment more worth while because when your not using your rv you can use it on your daily driver.

You are correct the toad can only have one high and one low pressure setting. Not sure how many axles your coach has, but if you were a 8 tire coach (no tag) you could use the back axle of your coach as your dolly as it has a separate setting for high and low pressure.

I tried this, only issue I ran into is you can't disconnect the dolly with the "Link" function. I eventually set the dolly as the trailer and if the car sensors are included set the lows and highs appropriately to cover both. I check mine once in a while while driving so a slow leak would be detected by observation rather than the alarm.

I think this is an area of improvement for this system or any that works in a similar manner, at least for those of us towing a dolly.

That's exactly what I did when I towed on a dolly. Worked fine, but I never had a reason to de-link the MH from the toad. The system works awesome!

I can't speak to ALL TPMS's but I would think that most of them will only allow one LOW or HIGH alarm setting for the towed vehicle assuming that the vehicle you are towing does not have dually wheels like your coach generally has.

My Tire SafeGuard TPMS is like that.

Simple logic. The reason for different alarm settings for the front and rear axles on the coach is the rear axle has four tires usually set at a lower psi than your front axle where there are only two tires.

Using a compromise for the two different psi's on your dolly and toad is a good solution. Remember that you are more interested in being alerted to under-inflated tires than over-inflated tires. Under-inflation does more harm than over-inflated.

I just installed an EEZ tpms. It is set for each axle. I run 100 psi on the coach, 50 psi on the dolly and 32 psi on the rear tires of the car. Works like a charm.

This is a problem because we frequently go on weekend trips without the toad. I'll check out the tire minder.
