Add my vote for TPMS systems. I installed the Doran 360 about a year ago and love it. I had to add the signal booster in the rear of the coach to avoid "lost sensor" alerts but it's been fine since then.

I don't have a temp monitoring function but do have an "over pressure" feature which may be a poor man's way of getting the same information.

I second the recommendation for the Tire SafeGuard system. Prior to our purchase, we blew a tire on I-10 in Phoenix. It was on our toad and we had no idea that the tire had blown. If an 18-wheeler had not pulled beside our rig to inform us to pull over, we would have never known the tire failed. After a new tire, we purchased the Tire SafeGuard because it was easy to install and did not need any repeater to get temps/pressure from the toad. I reviewed six tire monitoring systems prior to deciding to purchase the Tire SafeGuard system at a rally. The faster you know you have a problem, the less damage occurs because you keep traveling. We have had the system for 6 months and just returned from a great trip to Alaska traveling about 8-9,000 miles. It’s a comfort to have a system that lets you know you have a problem as soon as it occurs.

we have a smarttire system (including the toad) and woudl definitely do it again.

Instead of looking @ pressures, there is an inetrface to the VMS computer we have that displays a single graphic indicating OK, warning, failure or not communicating. In addition, there is an audible alarm in case of a failure.

This interface doesn't take any more visual time than checking the engine/trans/oil temps/pressure which is on the same display.

Only if I want to see individual tires do I change the display to show PSI & temps by tire.

Thanks,everyone for your experiance's with TPMS. Sounds like very solid peace of mind for those that have installed them.

Techie; Since starting this thread I happened across VMS's introduction of the Pessure Pro "add on" to their software. This looks like a perfect addition for me as I was already drooling over the information their software can provide. What level system are you using? Is the single graghic display on a PC or rotating thru a VMS unit? Your discription very much address' my conceren about too much information. I would prefer to know the tires are being monitored and will get an alarm when there's a problem rather than constent monitoring by me.

Does any one else have experiance with this setup?

Tumbleweed, from your comment about not having to constantly view the monitor I think you might be missing some info. As far as I know the various systems discussed on this thread all have Audio Alarms to let you know you have a problem with a tire. From my experiance with the TST, it will sound the alarm as soon as there is rapid air loss and also sound off when the PSI drops to the low level you set. It also will show you on the screen the tire that has the problem by flashing. Don't know about the others, but I hear they do the same.
