Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

I am looking to install one of the tire pressure monitoring systems on my 35' Monaco, anyone have one they would recommend? I looked at the Tyron system, seems a little on the high price side. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

We have had a Pressure Pro system (6 on mh + towd) since 2007 and have been very pleased with its performance. TST seems to be the most popular systems among posters on this forum (user replaceable batteries). If you do a search you can find a ton of postings here about TPMS systems.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

If you use the search feature on the forum, you will find tons of reading material on this subject.

I wouldn't be without a TPMS but we went with the Doran 360 and I would not recommend it. I've had far too many sensors fail in the five years I've had it.

Best of luck.

Rick

TireMinder Tire Pressure Monitoring System - Minder Research Inc TMG400C-4 - Tire Accessories - Camping World

Been running the above system the past year and a half and no problems, easy maintenance and very responsive system.

I recommend it based off my experience.

Good luck and whatever system you decide on, you'll be happy you have it. I check my tire pressure regularly (or rather have my co-pilot check it) on our trips, its interesting to see what the pressure and temperature is at different intervals during the day as you are driving.

I compared the TST and Pressure Pro, in the end I went with TST. Only because I liked their monitor better.

I haven't purchased yet, but I have decided that I'll go with TST TPMS.

I have used TST monitors for many years now and I have had no issues.

We have the TST 510 system and love it. So far we haven't had any tire problems, but like the comfort in knowing with the real status of our tires.

Thanks everyone! Your information is very helpful! Are these easy to install yourself?

Yep. You'll need to ensure you have clean, tight connections for each of the sensors which attach to the valve stems in most models. You can either have most monitors mounted as simply as velcro tape to the dash and plugged in to a 12v socket (lighter). I hard wired mine and made a small, angled bracket so I could see it better but it's not necessary.

Had a Pressure Pro but sold it with our 5'er to my BIL and sister, and have just gotten my new Tire Traker system, haven;t had a chance to use it yet. So can't report on it, but do like the way it is setup.

Should add that our PP never gave us any problem in the 6 years we used it. It would have cost the same to trade in the 4 old sensors and get 6 more, plus the repeater than a whole new Tire Traker system, which so far I've heard a lot of positive feedback on.

Should add that the best system is the one you have that works properly. I think there all fairly good.

I have used the Doran Pressure Pro for almost 3 years now. Like Rick O, I will not recommend it to anyone. The sensors are crap especially in cold weather. Recently on our last trip from Reno NV to Valencia CA, I had as many as 5 out of the ten sensors report Lost Signals constantly until we reached warmer weather after two days of driving. 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.
