I use it on my Toad, MH, and Trailers.

My toad is a pickup truck, so when I am not pulling it with the MH, I run the TPMS on the horse trailer and ATV Trailers behind the Truck..wouldn't be without it!

I have had 3 flats with early warning from the TPMS.

I have used the Tire SafeGuard for years and I am totally satisfied with their product and service. I like the Flow through design on the Coach for easy filling of tires and the battery replacement for the Toad. The Monitor has always worked without a repeater for the Toad.

I had a terrible time with mine, not because of the tpms, because my tires/stems weren't set up for easy access.

I had to buy valve extenders for the rear outside dually tires to get them out to where I could air up the tires without taking off the hub caps.

I had to take off the wheel covers (see pictures) to get to the valve stems to install the tpms monitors (Mine install on the end of the valve stems).

I had to figure out what kind of air compressor to buy to adjust the air pressure. The compressor I had wouldn't push air into the tires.

Anyway, all that being said, I did finally prevail and get it done!

Also, the one picture of the tire, you can see, (I just had the four rear dually's replaced in October....I was running 10 year old Goodyears ) I had them put both valve stems through the same hole for ease of access. I am very happy with that setup on the rear wheels.

Hope this helps!

TST 507 with their new flow through sensors. The easiest I've seen to program. No need to remove the sensors to air up the tires, my favorite feature.

Great customer service. THe owner Dan participates in the forums here.

This is my 2nd TST system. I had the 510 on the last coach. It performed flawlessly but decided I wanted the flow through sensors. Traded my 510 system in on the 507.

THe other feature I like is user replaceable batteries.

Go with either TST or Tire Minder. We went with tire minder after many forum searches!

And that was not the first time it has happened. The sensors are VERY susceptible to cold temperatures even though the company rep, Debbi Gerdes states that there are not. All they want you to do is to purchase replacements at $30 a pop.

I am replacing the Doran with the Tire-SafeGuard TPMS system. It has all of the same functions and more. It is the one system that OTR truck drivers use the most. It is also used my more buses and school buses than any other system.

Tire-SafeGuard

The company is located in Cerritos California. I happen to be located just one hour north and will be visiting their store very soon to pick up my new TPMS.

Looks like a good system

TST 507 works well for me even with the toad.

TireTraker from Lawrence is Our Choice

I was just writing about Daryl & Cheri at Lawrence Electronics Sales on FMCA. They are my top choice.

(Best, the recommended repeater unit is still in the box: for the time being, the unit senses all tires, even those 65 feet away on the toad.)

I am in the process of purchasing a monitor for my RV and toad but there are so many choices. Here is a question I hope someone can answer for me. On my toad (Toyota Matrix XR ) there is already a factory TPMS , my question is can I add another sensor to it or do I have to remove the factory first?

Wow I really love this site. I also was researching a tpms system today and came across this thread. I didn't even know they offered a flow through design, what a plus. Thanks to all for making my decision easy
