TPMS valve stems not locked, any stolen?

Of those folks who do not use the locks on your TPMS pressure sensors have you had a sensor disappear from your rig?

Nope.

I used 8 valve stem sensors on my previous RV and never had a problem. But I removed the sensors whenever it went into our storage yard. We've had batteries, spare tires, breakaway cables and a license plate stolen in storage facilities.

I labels on each sender so I didn't have to reprogram the system every time.

No problem here. One year on the road. We are fulltime, so there's no storage issue.

After two years with the locks on, I took them off a year ago. Haven't lost one yet. Because it's so much easier getting them off and on, I check tire pressure more frequently.

18 months - 8 MH & 4 toad sensors...all accounted for.

I haven't ever removed my MH sensors. I remove my toad sensors if I plan to be parked for a few days or more since my toad goes places where curious folks are more likely to look for a souvenir.

On my MH, I am thinking I will remove the sensors more often just to save the batteries. I'll test that out this winter when I take my first shot at being a "Winter Texan".

I personally have not had any stolen. Although it would have been a blessing if someone would have stolen the Doran RV360 ones as they were absolutely useless in cold weather. Finally sold the system to an RVer located in Las Vegas where it is HOT most of the time so I guess I shouldn't complain.

I know of one friend who had four taken off of his toad while eating at a restaurant. They were the Pressure Pro sensors.

I always remove them if I plan to sit for awhile. It also saves battery life.

Richard. I'm curious... What's your TPMS of choice now ?

We've not had a problem, but we also remove them when the moho is in storage.

What kind of labels do you use that withstand the elements and travel motion?

The storage box for ours has a foam insert where the senders are placed. We just keep them in order in the box.

I use a set of ziplock baggies labeled with a sharpie. I remove the toad sensors anytime I'm not towing for more than a few days. The sensors stick out beyond the wheel rim and I had one damaged on a curb once.
