Went to buy a new set of tire covers @ a Privately owned MH Dealer S of the City's yesterday,for my 82 PA and they wanted $35.00 for a set. Before I went I looked on line and they had a internet sale for the exact same set for $22.00 . They wouldn't give me the price in person so I left without any tire coversIt was a nice drive though. CW here I come.

Ron,

As noted in my previous post I HIGHLY recommend the Tire SafeGuard TPMS.

I have had mine since December 2012 and I have had ZERO problems. No lost signals, no screen or data freezes, It has been totally 100% reliable and consistent.

Change the batteries every two years and you will never have a problem.

It is extremely easy to program or change programs. Even changing out the batteries is easy. I plan to record a YouTube video with instructions on how to easily change out the batteries in the sensors. I have offered it to Tire SafeGuard so they can post it on their web site.

Just yesterday I purchased a Tire SafeGuard TPMS for my 2004 Arlen Ness Limited Signature Edition Victory motorcycle. That's how much I believe and trust in this TPMS.

As far as I am concerned it is the only TPMS that you will ever need to own.

Trust me you will NOT be disappointed.

They have great customer service however there is only one person that takes care of sales and technical service. His name is Dion. His mobile number is 818-400-9976.

The company is headed up by Steve Wong who pretty much works out of the company office. His focus is mainly working on worldwide sales & marketing plus future technology improvements.

You can use my name as a reference and referral, Richard Smith, but I want to be very clear that I have no monetary connection to this company other than I have complete and total faith in their TPMS versus all others.

Also, as with any type of electronic device, there could be an electrical glitch with any device. If there is they will take care of it for you.

As an example, when I first installed the signal booster it would not light up when power was applied to it. They sent me a new one immediately. Well, that one reacted the same. So then they thought it was the connector cable. Well, since Dion lives only a few miles away from where I am volunteering, he came over with a new cable and a new signal booster. As it turned out the third signal booster worked correctly and lit up when power was applied so it wasn't the cable as they had previously thought. However, they had never seen TWO signal boosters fail like that. But all is well now and the system is working flawlessly.

Thanks for the response. I looked on your link and as I see it there are three types of sensors. I was asking which type of their sensors are you using. Thanks again.

Sorry for the misunderstanding...

I use ALL Cap sensors for the coach and car/trailer.

The new Motorcycle TPMS that I just purchased also has Cap sensors but they are smaller than the ones for the RV and car/trailer.

They offer internal sensors but that an be expensive to install and to change out batteries.

They also offer the very popular Flow-Through sensors that some people like. However I don't like that extra size and bulk on the end of my valve stems. Besides, my philosophy is that to add or remove air using the Flow-Through sensors you have to remove a cap from the top of the sensor. No different than removing a Cap sensor. They both need to be unscrewed and screwed back on.

It's a personal choice that is up to each individual as to what type of sensor they want to use.

I completely agree with you Richard. Besides that, I initially had lots of problems with my flow through sensors, and NONE with the cap type. I switched over from flow-through to caps all the way around now--RV and the toad. Mine is the TST brand, and I choose not to use their theft-deterrent system from my caps too so that the caps fit more easily on my toad's after-market rims, and so that it's easier to remove them when adding or removing air. My RV is in locked storage or at an RV park 100% of the time, so cap theft is not something I worry about. If someone steals a cap from my Jeep, I'll buy another, but so far nobody's even taken a second look at them. My Jeep has black wheel rims anyway, and those black TST caps blend right in. In my book, the fewer deterrents there are to proper tire inflation, the better!

Three things were recently purchased for the coach:
1. re-skin & repaint
2. frameless windows
3. entry step that goes all the way to the ground

Go to 2015 Coach Upgrades - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery for pictures.

A "campfire in a can" for cold nights in places that don't allow wood fires and a Cuisinart "Chef Style" Propane tabletop grill.

Propane is my friend...

Richard,

I too have the Tire SafeGuard and I agree, it is a great unit. Mine is ten years old now.

I don't understand why you need a signal booster though, mine works fine without one. I store my RV at home and park my dingy well over 100' from my RV, yet my monitor easily picks up the signal my from my dingy's wheel sensors. No need for a booster with my unit.

Table top ice maker--$85 for remanufactured unit.

I pour about a saucepan of water into it daily, and it constantly makes ice. Makes enough for all our uses.
