If one of the receivers had a backup battery, I would be OK, but I don't see that. Have I missed something; does one brand have a back-up system when all power is off?
All you would need to do is take the monitor and 12V charger cord with you on a trip in your car, every few weeks or so, to keep it charged up. It will be out of range of course but will remember the settings and work fine as soon as you take it with you on a trip in the RV. That's what I do.


Just think of it as another portable device that needs regular recharging, like your cell phone, laptop, camera, cordless mouse, etc. I have an entire gadget bag full of that stuff whenever I travel, complete with chargers, usb cables, etc.... what's one more thing, right?

I can't comment on what to do if you need a repeater; I don't have one.

I'm replacing my PressurePro with it. The PressurePro works great. I'm replacing it because you have to replace the sensors when the batteries run down. It's five years old and the batteries are still ok. I don't know how much longer they will last. If anyone is interested I'll sell it cheap. Send me a private email.

Great posts Rveer,
Thanks for all the info.
But here is the thing, checking tires have been a PITA all around for me, I got 3 tire check gauges and none seem to do the job right or easy at all. I got a simple one, a dual foot 45 degrees one and I guess I need one that is dual foot but not 45 degree. Access to the valves are ok not perfect but doable, I wonder it there will be enough room to install the monitors sensors. Do you have pix of them after installation?
On the front wheels not sure it will fit with the chrome thingy, by the way I got a Kodiak chassis.
Thanks again for your posts.
Mo

I know what you mean about checking the air on the inner tires, mine is a pain also. I used to have braided flexible valve extensions on the inner wheels but they were alway leaking, and I mean all the way down to zero. I used to have to pump them up for every trip but they would go flat overnight. I removed them, put the sensors on and haven't had to adjust the air pressure (on any of the tires) since installation. I still need to use the extension on the inner valves because I can't get any of the three pressure gauges I own on the valve for a proper reading, nor can I get my air pump nozzle on them. I couldn't even get my hand in the hole in the wheel to screw on the sensor, I had to have my g/f do it, with her smaller hands.

I can't tell you for sure if the sensors will fit your wheels but they aren't all that huge, so probably. I'll take some photos this weekend of mine on the wheels and post 'em for you.

I got my system delivered last week and put the sensors on my Jeep to test things out last night. Set up was very easy.

With 2+ feet of snow on the ground, putting them on the MH will have to wait a few weeks...

Well while at the Houston RV Show spoke with a gentlemen with bestrvstuff and he ran down the system to me very nice, I had found the basic system thru one of my overseas vendors so ordering mine from overseas but pretty sure the same system. Will keep everyone posted on how it works out since ordering overseas is about half price.

Unit is nice and compact.

Ok, here's pics of mine "on the hoof". I forgot to mention (because I forgot I did this ) that I put the braided valve extensions back on for the outer rear wheels. Only the inner ones leaked, on both sides... go figure. I'll yank the outer ones if they start leaking, but so far so good.

So, you can see on the front wheel the sensor peeks out from hole in the wheel cover. I would have to pull the cover to remove the sensor & attach an air pump, obviously.

On the rear wheels, I've provided a photo of the whole setup, after pulling the wheel cover. You can see there's plenty of clearance for the inner wheel for the sensor, just not enough for my ham-hand to get in there to screw it on. And you can see the bracket still attached to one of the bolts on the hub, for the removed valve extension. And then, of course, you can see the sensor attached to the end of the valve extension for the outer wheel.

Hope this helps you decide.

Bob

When I purchased my system the seller told me that I probalbly would not need the signal booster but if I did he would ship it to me just for the cost of the booster. I'm in a 40 foot motor home. I don't need the signal booster for my tow car.

I too didn't like the window mount, but a piece of velcrow worked just fine.
