Pressure Pro TPMS Sensor

Thinking about ordering the system and was wondering if anyone had the problem of someone taking off the sensors (stealing)?

Hello - I have had mine on for 11 years with no problems. You can get a locking nut that requires a small ignition wrench to remove the sensor if you like.

We have also had them for 11 years and never lost one to theft. Coach or toad. I'm sure it has happened to someone, somewhere, but it's not something we worry about. There isn't much market for used PP sensors, so the only likely thief would be another camper who lost one somehow and decided to take a shortcut on replacement. Few RV parks have that sort of problem, though.

I have also had them a long time without problem - except when I got a front wheel to close to a log in a rural area in Alaska and that was my problem. I broke a valve stem and the end with the sensor flew off into the brush. Had to pull that big wheel and get it into the car and take it to a town to have the stem replaced. First time I ever used the torque multiplier I carry & kind of hope that's that last time.

Since PP tire sensor batteries are not replaceable, stealing one off of a tire would not guarantee the thief a usable unit. However, a person with malicious mischief in mind could make it a problem for you.

That said, I've had mine now for seven years and have never lost one yet. Many times I leave them on the toad for quite a while before remembering to pull them off....none lost there either.

I just installed my 507 set and I am very happy with the product and support. I received mine pre programmed for the coach and toad. Flow thru on the coach. I had another system and threw it out.

Ditto on all the above re long-time, no swipes. AND, due to my CRS affliction that flares up more and more frequently, sometimes I leave the sensors on the toad for awhile after returning from trips.

My concern is 100%, "Awwww man, I wasted some battery life," vs. "oh good, they didn't get swiped."

To some of the above folks - I have had mine about 7 years now. Been pondering doing the swap, but I think I saw $39 if you swap, and $50 new.
1. Gary, and str8six, are you on the originals still? Did yours quit, if so about when? did you remove during off season?
2. Know of anyone who took them apart to see what battery # is in there (PressurePro would not be manufacturing batteries, so....) For the $11 difference, I am going to keep 2 back for autopsy, but not just yet, since they are all still fine.

If you only have CRS you are doing good. I also have CSS and CHS. DW tells me the CHS is not new. Supposedly I've had it for as long as we have been married.

I've had the PP system for about 6 mths. Mine is integrated with VMSPC. 9 out of 10 sensors work flawlessly. I have not been able, nor has "Smart Systems Technology", figured out why the 10th position doesn't work. Very disappointing. This is not a cheap system and I don't think it unreasonable of me to expect it to work. When I last spoke to Mark Overholt, from SST, I left it with them to figure out, it's been a few months now and I have yet to receive a call back or solution. I have been unable to be more aggressive in seeking a solution as I'm dealing with my own significant health issues and frankly while not happy about the kit it's way way down on my list of important things.
