I use this one Tire-SafeGuard and am very happy with it. No repeater is necessary and customer service has been outstanding. I bought it because it is the only system I found that has the flow thru sensors. I can add or remove air without removing the sensors.

Interesting, but the website makes no mention of where one can buy the sysatem or how much it costs. Also no mention of service, sensor cost, battery life, or battery replacement.

Any more details on this system?

Here is a real important tip. Make sure that you buy a system with sensors that you can change the batteries on yourself. If not you are going to have to buy new sensors everytime the batteries run out. That can be $40-$60 a sensor.

This is the one below I have and they now selling it at Camping World. It is great and you can replace the batteries yourself. Removing the sensor to inflate the tires is just the same as unscrewing the stem cap it is simple to do. While travelling I just do a quick check on all the tire pressure on the monitor in the morning and I am ready to roll. Don't have to check the tires with a gauge anymore

Whatever system you end up with (we use the Hawkshead) you'll wonder what you did without it!

Hal, that TPMS sold by Camping World is identical to my Hawkshead. I don't understand it but take a close look and see what you think.

I started with the Hoskins and was very disappointed with it. Constantly lost signal from tires and alarmed. Didn't want to buy additional repeater. Ended up with the Truck System Technologies TPM and have been very happy with it. No repeater needed on my 37' MH and it has been very reliable. $300 for 6 tire setup and your choice of replacable batteries or replacable sensor.

This is the one I have. It was a simple setup .. 3yr warranty and a couple hundred less, and a longer warranty than the others I compared it to.

I, like Hal and Mike have a Hawkshead TPMS. It has worked fairly well although last trip we had some problems with losing the signal. For the next trip I will replace all batteries and see what happens. If only used once in a while, I think the batteries don't last, even if you remove them and reprogram each time.
Mike I agree that the one at Camping World looks the same as Hawkshead.

Have either of you had NOS signals? I get them usually on the rear inner wheels, where the sensor is mounted closest to the outside. Also I have had problems with after stopping and the tires have a chance to cool the alarm goes off for leaking tire, even though I have the tires set at 95 lbs cold and they are now at 105 lbs, down from 110 or so.

I bought the tire pressure monitor system from Truck System Technologies. They have the kit available with replaceable batteries in the sensors, and also available with non-replaceable batteries in the sensors. I chose the kit with non-replaceable batteries in the sensors. I based that decision only on price. Time will tell if that was the right decision.

The system was easy to install and easier to learn. I can't explain the peace of mind I've had ever since I installed that system.

The sensors require the use of a special tool for installation, and for removal to put air in the tires. I understand that this was provided for security reasons, but it's a bit of a pain.

If you are concerned with proper tire inflation, a TPMS is a necessity. I have the Doran system for several years, and my only complaint was the sensor batteries didn't last as long as I would have liked. Doran's will replace sensors for 1/2 price, sure eases the pain.

I went with Doran based on the unit operation, and display.

I just bought the Tire-Safeguard. Total cost depends on, of course, how many wheels and whether you are adding your toad. I called Dion Elrod 818-400-9976. Very helpful, answered all of my questions, received my order in just a few days. Plus, told me to call him 7 days a week at this number if I had problems. Good luck !
