Doran TPMS

Doran Manufacturing LLC. announced in the recent March issue of FMCA that they are now monitoring the temperature of tires, which would include wheels and bearings. Their software will display a big HOT message with RED alert Signal on the master unit.

The software version in your master control unit has to be 1.3 or higher.

Richard did the article have any additional info? The Doran web site make no mention of this new feature. I would also presume the individual sensors would have to be changed also.

Here's a copy of the article taken from the FMCA web-site.




Tire Pressure Monitoring System The 360RV Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) from Doran Manufacturing LLC now includes a high-temperature alarm to alert drivers to a potential blowout situation.

The 360RV TPMS continuously monitors the temperature of each tire. When the temperature of a tire exceeds 248 degrees Fahrenheit, an alarm sounds and the word “HOT” and the tire position appear on the unit’s screen. The unit also monitors the pressure of each tire and sends separate warnings when a pressure drops 12.5 percent and 25 percent below the programmed baseline pressure. It also includes a fast leak alarm if a tire’s pressure drops 2.8 psi in less than 12 seconds.

The 360RV TPMS includes valve stem sensors and an LCD monitor with multiple mounting options. Systems are available to accommodate any motorhome, trailer, and towed vehicle combination. Manufacturer’s suggested retail prices begin at $299.99 (four wheels).

I spoke with the Doran Mfg. RV Customer Sales Representative, Debbi, who has now stated that the correct version number for the temperature sensing software is Version 1.03 and higher, NOT Version 1.30 as I had stated in the original post.

I purchased my unit last fall and it has software Version 1.07 so I have the temperature sensing software already in my unit. I haven't completed the entire installation as yet. I have the signal repeater installed in my rear closet with an On/Off switch. The master control is installed using my very old Monaco navigation system mount. All I have left to do is mount each tire sensor to the valves stems. I need to purchase 6 new tires first as my rear ones are 10 years old and the fronts are 6 years old.

We are leaving for Alaska in 6 weeks so I do NOT want to have any tire problems going up or back. I plan to use one of the newer front tires as a spare tire to carry along for the ride just in case I have a problem with one of the new tires. When you are out in the Boonies, it never hurts to have a spare rubber.

248F is too late, isn't it?
This needs to be around 180F for alarm

If 248F is detected at the tire valves (location of sensor) and the cause is (say) bearings, the temp of bearings are much higher (likely around 300F) due to their location at the center of the wheel. I have read somewhere that tires ignite around that temperature.
