I love my Doran and wouldn't be on the road without it!
I've had the Doran TPMS for over a year but it has only been installed since last May before leaving for Alaska. Had a problem with one sensor on installation but Debbi of RV Customer Service was great and was able to resolve my problem over the phone. I installed the repeater as my rig is very long and didn't want any signal problems. On the 4000 mile trip up to Alaska, we had one "Lost Signal" alarm on a trailer tire. Stopped and checked the tire, it was okay and reseated the sensor. No more problems with that sensor until we made a side trip with the Toad behind us over to Seward and Homer. That specific sensor lost the signal again and never recovered so Debbi sent a new one to my Alaska address for a replacement free of charge. On our trip back to CA, we never had any more sensor problems but did have one tire blow-out on the trailer just outside of Whitehorse, Yukon. Didn't really realize it was our tire immediately until a second later the Doran is sounding off with a BIG picture of a Flat Tire on the screen. We pulled over with no damage to the trailer. If we had traveled on we would have surely damaged the wheel well and ruined the other tire on that side of the trailer.
The version of software, 1.07 and higher, has the High Temp alert only if you turn it on during setup. It will alert you to a very high temp in your wheel well before the sensor is damaged beyond use.
I also remove the sensors if I am going to be located in one spot for longer than a couple of weeks or so. Many users have gotten 6-7 years or even longer with them always on so I should be able to go 10 or more having them removed when not in use and saving battery life. Besides, taking them off of the trailer or Toad prevents them from growing "Legs".
In addition to the TPMS, I carry and use a laser IR Temperature gun to read the temps of all tires and wheels. I am looking for one tire or wheel that is WAY higher in temps versus ones on the same side of the rig. You are NOT interested in actual temps only in very large variances.
Whatever system you decide on, the most important one is to have a TPMS installed before you get on the road. Tire blowouts are the number one insurance claims in the country for RV's.
