I have a TST model TM-510RV with extra sensors on my Jeep. I checked my coach tires when we were traveling to WV each morning. My passenger front coach tire went down to under 80PSI while underway one day. The alarm went off and I was able to pull off. I found the valve stem extension was leaking and after I tightened it up I reinflated the tire back to 100PSI. Without the TST system I would have continued to drive on, ignorant of a bad situation that eventually would have caused a blow out. These systems are one of the best investments you can make. I'm sure all brands are going to give similar protection.

You'll find countless threads on this topic with a lot of great information. We use the Doran 360 and have for the past two years. We found we needed to add the RF signal booster in the back of the coach to avoid "lost sensor" false alarms. We've also had one sensor fail probably due to a dead battery. Replacement was around $35.

You'll find there are a lot of conflicting opinions on this topic but one thing is common... most who have them would never think of being without one again.

I use the Hawkshead System with power booster on the M/H (8 sensors) and Jeep (4 sensors). Provides PSI and Temp info with alarms for both. Tire sensors have replaceable batteries and power booster uses AA or AAA. Base unit is rechargable lithium. Easy to install and good tech support.

We've been using the Pressure Pro system for 3+ years now and like it a lot.

We use the TST system, and love it. It has "saved our bacon" two or three times for sure, and the daily peace of mind is wonderful. The customer service from TST is outstanding, you would do well to check them out. HarveyP

We use the Tire Safeguard system with the flow through sensors which gives us the ability to add air without removing the sensors. Sensors have both pressure and temp and support from HCI has been excellent.

Same here. We have a 39' Coach and no antenna is needed. Not sure of the actual range but it picks up the Toad tires when the wife is driving it. The flow thru sensors were the biggest factor in my decision on which brand to buy.

Thanks for all the inputs from a lot of experienced traveliers. I was looking for one with the alarms and would not have thought to look for the flow throughs. Your great help.
