I believe they are a good add on but they do have problems. Both inside dual extensions corroded on the sensors $100 in the trash plus new extensions, one tire was way low on air after storage removed sensor hasn't lost a pound since (another $50.00 in the trash),batteries on my model are $25.00 a piece 3 only lasted 3 years.

Sounds like you need to dump whatever you purchased and buy yourself a TPMS system that really works and is reputable.

Also get rid of the extensions and purchase a complete set of Borg Solid Valve Stems for your coach. Trust me you will not have any more leaks or corrosion problems.

Yikes! Batteries for my TireTracker system are CR1632 "watch" batteries available just about anywhere. My inside duals have been on solid metal extensions with no corrosion problems.

I bought the coach back in 12/2003 with 42,000 clicks on the odometer. The two front tires were scalloped so they needed to be replaced immediately which I did and also had the front end aligned because it was bad right from the factory. The original owners never took the time to have it done.

Over the following 7 years it was mostly stationary while living in it prior to finishing my career. I put maybe 2000 miles on it during that 7 years and most of that was having repairs and service done.

I finally retired in January 2009 and by May 2010 I had the coach ready for travel with new tires, shocks, TPMS, GPS, Auto Fire Extinguisher systems, toliet, etc.

Since then I have put on another 35,000 miles, been across the country twice, as far south as Key West Florida and as far north as Fairbanks Alaska. I've been up and back from Alaska twice.

I've been sitting in the Los Angeles area for the past 18 months to finalize some business but by May of next year I will be heading back to Alaska for the third time and then over to the Atlantic side of the country to spend a number of years wintering in Florida and summering both in Canada and upstate New York.

So that's the deal!
