I use this system on my DP. Install is straight forward. I lose the RR inner signal occasionally. Exchanging sensors confirmed it is a location issue so I will need the booster.

When the batteries die, you must purchase new sensors (@$50. ea) rather than install new batteries yourself @ $1. each.

I've had mine for about 3 years now. Ten sensors and the booster.

If I were to do it again I would go with another brand. I've had to replace 7 of the 10 sensors due to failures. Doran acknowledged the problem by extending the warranty to two years but I still needed to send the bad sensor in to them so they could verify the failure before sending me a replacement.

Replacement sensors retail for $39.

Their customer service folks have been nice enough but I've had to talk with them far too often for what they charge for these things.

I too have a Doran system with amplifier to receive sensors on toad. I have sent 4 sensors back and 3 another time. 2 were repeats from the first 4. Their story is that I tighten them too tight. When they leak, and you loose 30 lbs overnight; what would you do? I have 5 out of 10 bad now. Pricey system to throw away, but I am ready to do just that. I requested spare seals and they would not sell them to me. They say that only they can install seals.

I've had this sysytem for four years now. I just replaced the sensors and they cost me $29.99 ea. (I bought 10) System has been good and while I wish you could just replace the battries I haven't seen any system out there that would cause me to want to change. I just chalk it up to just part of owning a MH....

I find that the three cup suction mount does not hold well. I am thinking of getting a new mount from RAM, but can't determine which connecting head to buy for holding the Duran 360 to the RAM suction base and arm.

Anyone using a RAM mount for their Doran 360? If so, which component did you go with to grip the TPMS?

I made an angled bracket out of sheet metal, drilled a hole in the dash to hard wire it... and attached the TPMS to the bracket with Velcro. It's mounted at about knee level but is angled upward so I can easily read it while driving.

I went with the Tire Tracker system because I can replace the batteries myself. I had to add the booster since we are so far back to the rear wheels on the trailer.
