Secutire Monitoring system

Purchased these off EBAY, Secutire Monitoring system, for the coach and the towed.
After more than 1K miles they are still doing okay.
In the beginning I tested them by lowering and raising the tire pressure. Seemed to work well.
They have two systems: one for 90psi and above and one for 28 psi+.
All together I paid $52.00 plus shipping.
My computer freezes if I try to make Secutire a clicky.
This is just info, nothing else.

Kerry

Kerry,
The Secutire Monitoring System has not received rave reviews on several RV sites. The price you quoted for a complete system will not buy two tire monitors from the well known and highly evaluated TPMS on the market. I would say "Buyer Beware"!

ChiefJohn:
I learned about these on another forum (RV N-T) and all the replies were positive.
The monitors only sound off when the tire pressure drop below 90 psi(coach) and 28psi (towed). No other information.
Secutire TPMS is OLD technology. Batteries are $.99 on Ebay and takes 5 to 10 seconds to change. The batteries are not used until pressure drops which allows long battery life (3 years).
It was worth the money to me. I am "bewared"

I have Secutire monitors for the toad. I use TST on the coach. The only problem I have with Secutire is they give no indication when everything's OK. I drove out of range and nothing changed. On the TST system the readings go blank when out of range. So if a Secutire module falls off or the battery runs down then there is no way to tell, all looks good. I just test them before I leave. All I have to do is remove them and the light lights.
I found mine on E-Bay for $14.99 and they work fine.
SECUTIRE WIRELESS TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM TPMS : eBay Motors (item 370299370412 end time Dec-30-09 08:09:16 PST)
At that price I don't need to be very aware.

Dick

I just wanted to know when the towed's tires are low. Not have somebody passing me and waving/pointing to the towed vehicle. It's too late then.
Betting your life is when green tracers go through the plexiglass. RVing is just RVing.

Howdy,
I am 75 years-old, on fixed income, physically handicapped AND need a way
to check my tires on my '97 Georgie Boy 34'... The wireless systems I've found
are way out of my budget....any suggestions...

The Secutire system isn't a monitor as such, It only warns you when the pressure gets low. The expensive ones tell you the pressure of the tires at all times and sound an alarm when they go below a programmable level. I have the TST system on my MH but even though it's the least expensive one I could find it's still $299
http://www.tsttruck.com/Product_List.html
Thatís a pretty penny, I don't regret buying my TST system and I'd do it again, but I drove for years without on and thatís back when flats were more common. So it's a personal call for sure. For some reason RV Tires are a target for FEAR Marketing. People are changing tires every 5 years if they need it or not and a TPMS is a must or you'll die. Perhaps I'm just reckless but I feel if a person acquires some knowledge and applies it regularly than these things the tire manufactures are pounding into our heads aren't necessary. It's real good for tire manufactures if they can convince us to replace tires sooner than necessary, they then have good cores for retreads and are relieved of some liability because they did warn us.
Use your best judgment, but there isn't a Monitoring System at a real good price out there and perhaps you have need for three hundred dollars elsewhere in your life.

Stay Safe and enjoy
Dick

Thanks Dick, well said! IMO, tires will last longer than "5-years" with routine maintenance and monitoring -- unfortunately, the majority of folks ignore these tires until they have a problem. The cost of a good TPMS is well worth the security of knowing the status of each of my tires at a glance -- not just a beep or alarm when there is a problem. Maintaining the correct pressure, covered when parked, and suitable pads beneath the tires when stored. Nitrogen (?), I'm not sure of the benefits -- someone else can chime in on that as a preventive measure.

when you have the dreadful bosch brakes on a workhorse w20 or w22 chassis, the tst system with temperature readouts as well as pressure readouts is a valuable resource.
