Tire Monitor Question

I have read where some systems send a signal to the monitor every 2 or 3 minutes. A lot can happen between signals. Is there any that sends a signal the second there is a problem?

With a slow leak, that might be fine but if your toad has a quick blowout, a considerable amount of damage can happen in that delay.

Thanks, Leo

Tire SafeGuard TPMS.

Tire-SafeGuard

I had Doran 360RV for 3 years with LOTS of problems. Finally dumped it on eBay.

I love the Tire SafeGuard and after numerous trips without experiencing any problems I won't use anything else except TSG.

If I remove a sensor from my TST TPMS, it immediately alarms.

Hi Engle,
There may be different time spans a sensor reports to the control station. If nothing is happening, every few minutes should be fine. If the environment changes an immediate signal is sent. That's how my Pressure Pro works. This is a battery saving feature. I can remove a sensor from a tire and the control panel sounds the alarm immediately.

Gary is correct. Pressure Pro will alert you to a blow out immediately. Typically, if you have a blow out on your toad, you will not know about it until someone pulls up beside you and starts honking. You may not even know about an inside dual...kinda doubtful, but possible I suppose.

In any event, PP will let you know real quick.

I have used both TST and Tire Tracker. Both systems will immediately alarm when there is any departure from the set psi/temps OR in event of a fast or even a slow leak. As long as things are within norms, the "reporting" is at the normal interval. When something unusual may be happening, they let you know immediately.

We have the TST and have not had a problem yet (knock on wood). Our biggest complaint is the monitor alarms when the batteries are old and cold signaling that they are "close" to needing replaced. It drives our dog crazy!

Which system do you feel is the better of the two?

I used to have TST. The Tire Tracker system I have now has been more reliable for me, and no flats whike parked due to sensors coming loose.The Tire Tracker sensors are smaller and lighter (so less centrifigul force on the valve stems), and I have had zero failed sensors compared with I believe it was 8 in 10 months with TST.
