Tire pressure monitors

:) I'm brand new on this forum. I have been looking at tire pressure monitors for my Bus and toad and I was looking to get feedback from those of you that have purchased one. I don't even know if I am on the right post area but I would sure like some info on the good ones and the bad ones.

Thanx

We have the Doran 360 and it has been very reliable for us. Helped us locate a slow leak in one of the rear duals (tire stem problem). Also saved our buns when a tire on our old coach developed a fast leak from road hazard.

I think you will find these are all good, will save you big bucks and give you some piece of mind. We have the TST also and it already paid for itself.

I have a year old pressure pro that works well. I have to admit though that I mainly use it to check cold pressure every few days. I know that this will not protect me if I get a fast leak, but I just got tired of trying to figure out how to program the thing.

Bob, if it's that fast chances are the tire isn't salvagable anyway. I had what I'd consider a fast leak where I lost 25lbs in 20 miles and the warning came on, pulled over and tightened the extender and refilled the tire. I do pay attention to the pressures as I drive from time to time just to make sure nothing strange is happening.

I've had my Doran 360 for nearly 3 years and would probably buy another brand if I had to do it again. It's saved my bacon once but I've already had two sensors go bad and get too many "lost sensor" alarms even though I have the booster installed.

If reports on the performance of other systems are accurate I'd probably opt for one of those instead.

My Pressure Pro sensors are now 6 years and 3 months old.
Still working.

I haven't needed to replace them twice by your 3 year's.
Is your 3 years from a test, report from users or just a guess?

Also your price is way off.
Monitor($190) & 6 sensors($50 each) Total $490

Doran

I have Doran, which do give pressure, but to check each tire you have to scroll thru the mini compter.

Must be careful in putting on sensors. Too loose and they don't work. Too tight, and you ruin the seal, and they MAY leak down slowly.

I"ve used them for 5 years- but 4 weeks one leaked, and it was $290 to get the tire "repaired" though it was not leaking after completely flat (off the rim) - repair tore down tire put it back together - did not put on sensor, and in the past 4 weeks the tire has not leaked.

I think they need a harder seal, so the sensors can be put on tight without worry.

Tire-SafeGuard has flow thru sensors so you can add air without removing the sensors. It also doesn't require a repeater.
