That's a good looking system. I like the fact that the baseline pressure can be programed completely from the monitor without having to re-install the sensor. The "sleep mode" is nice also. But the BEST thing is that they've got the motorhome headed in the correct direction in the display (facing to the right). On the PP system, it's backwards, which drives me nuts because I have the monitor mounted under the driver's side window.

I talked to Doran sales yesterday, and it will be out the 1st week of March. The MSRP is only $9 more than the current model, ($499 vs $490)but you sure get a lot more. I see places should be dropping the prices on the old model real quick. but i am ging to wait for the new model.

I sure like the "look" of this one much better and the mounting bracket. It sure makes for a cleaner installation. Price is good too. This one is going to top of my list.

Scott, did you buy the additional antenna to extend the signal?

Yes. Some will tell you that they just put the repeater in the toad and all is fine. Did not work for me. I had to install a 12v outlet in the cabinet above the toilet which is about 2/3rds of the way back in the coach. I plugged the repeater into it. Works great.

You can go to Wal-Mart or Radio Shack to get the receptacle and ends. I had a couple of unused slots in the fuse block so it is dedicated.

Others have just cut into a 12v line in the rear closet or rear bedroom.

What size fuse did you put in the block? Did you try just using the external antenna under the coach before you purchased the repeater? If I don't tap into the fuse block, can i just use scotch locks and tap into a wire for the closet lighting?

Jerry,

I bought the repeater as a kit. To be honest, I didn't know there was an antenna option. As I mentioned, first tried the repeater on the dash of the toad. Sometimes worked sometimes didn't.

I don't remember what size fuse I used and I don't have access to the coach. I think it was a 2 or 2.5 amp.

I store the repeater in the cabinet when parked. When driving, I pull it out and hang it from the towel bar using the power cord. I haven't taken the time to mount it yet. I would probably use Velcro above the stool.

Pressure Pro did say it was better for the repeater to be vertical instead of laying flat and for the antennas to be across the vehicle instead of parallel w/the long side.
