I apologize is this has been covered but I want to buy a tire pressure monitoring system that will cover the coach and toad. I want the valve stem type.

I bought the Tire-Safe Guard system. It monitors all of the tires on the RV and Toad. I chose it because it has "flow thru" sensors that allow me to add air without removing the sensors.

If you mean the ones you have to look at the tire stem to check your pressure, I would save your money and buy a good pressure gauge...I would also reco. that you look into the ones that can be monitored inside while driving..such as Pressure Pro or the like..

I've just installed the new Doran RV360 and love it. It's a big load off my mind to be able to monitor the tires from the driver's seat.

I had hoped to get away without buying the signal repeater but I've been getting a few "lost sensor" errors which means that the unit loses contact temporarily with one of the sensors on the valve stems. I'm going to purchase the repeater and I think that should solve the problem.

Good Luck.

I have been using the Pressure Pro system for about 5 years now with no complaints. The company is very good to work with. This system has saved me many problem by alerting me well in advance of pending problems. I would definity buy the Pressure Pro system again.

Doran Pressure Pro system. If you are longer than 38' I would suggest the repeater to ensure a good signal from the toad.

I chose the Tire-Safe Guard because of the flow thru stems as well. Not having to remove a sensor to add air to a tire is a huge benefit. It is the on and off motion that wears the gaskets that seal the senders from leaking.

My system also came with all the necessary antenna and recievers to monitor the toad without buying additional parts.

Eddie,
I use the system from http://www.tsttruck.com/ it is half the price of the Doran or Pressure Pro system and monitors both tire pressure and tire temperature. I have been using it for almost a year now and it has been very reliable and accurate.

Just curious if anyone has used these or not? Bought a set for my pickup and it's a handy thing to glance and see it it's been tripped or not. Can always easily verify it's working by removing it and letting it trip. http://www.accu-pressure.com/cgi-bin/Store/index.cgi?ca...3759133.56035&pid=16

Thought about getting a set for the R.V. , but haven't read any good of bad reviews about them yet.

Of course it doesn't replace my gauge, but it's a nice cheap way to check all tires between gauge checks.

Edit: and I say cheap because the 4 I bought for the pickup were at wally world for $6 for the set. $10 Each might not be so cheap, but I would imagine they are a better grade than what I bought.

Not sure if it was the same brand, but I had a set of the same type. Threw them in the trash after having 2 flat tires. I doubt that any of the plastic ones will really hold up under the high pressure on MH tires.
I'm currently saving my money up for a set of Pressure Pros by Dorian.

I've been using the Advantage Pressure-Pro for over three years. The reason I bought it was it was the only stem mounted unit available at that time. I'm happy with it and will continue to use it.

I have had this system on my rig for almost 8 months and find it to be easy to use and accurate, plus much less in cost than the other comparable systems.
