I'm not sure my system is working right....

With a repeater in the back closet my toad, and PS duals, and sometimes the inside DS dual never update. On my last trip I left the monitor laying on the bed and checked it after 20 minutes; it did update all my rear duals but I don't think it got the toad tires.

I'm going to replace the sensor batteries & see what happens.

I left a MSG for the Tire Traker folks on their web site but never heard back. So now I'm not even sure I like their support (or lack of).

I never had this problem on my truck and 5th wheel.

I figure if this goes on I'll be shopping for a Pressure Pro system. I bought this system for peace of mind but lost that a few trips ago.

Not sure what you are saying ...it had a reading, but did not seem to change as you thought it should be doing? ...A few times when I wondered, I took the monitor outside and unscewed the sensor and it would immediately alarm ...that tells me it definitely is doing the job.

Thanks for starting this thread. I've been looking for a system to replace the TST when I had to get the sensors cut off my valve stems after they corroded and siezed on. $250.00 to have all six 122.5" wheels dismounter and remounted to replace the stems. Dan at TST will replace a faulty sensor or "four" as was the case when I first installed it but nothing but arrogant when confronted with a real issue.

I installed a crossfire on the rear duals to make it easy to visually monitor the and top off the pressure from a single point and I'm looking to put a single sensor on each of those, the two front tires and the tow dolly and the rear wheels of the toad.

Thanks again for the thread I'll look into this system.

I called them earlier today and we had a real good conversation. Daryle is taking care of me quite well (better than I would have ever guessed).

It is good to find companies who do such good follow-up and customer support.

I'll give an update on the fix after we get things in place. Most likely all my troubles are self-induced and I need to change batteries more often. Of course, that is one of the primary reasons I got the Tire Traker; it's just my fault for not changing them sooner.

i thought I'd follow-up with one more post on this....

I ended up having to replace the repeater I had in the rear closet of the motorhome. Now everything is fine. Daryle took real good care of me and we communicated a number of times while investigating the intermittent service. I'd recommend TireTraker to anyone looking for a good system with outstanding service and support.

Hi guy's. I am one of those people who bought this system based on this specific thread, It works good for me so far, however I had a problem with one of my sensors not responding after the winter storage. I have replaced the battery in that sensor still No5 on NoS show up on the monitor ( I have a 6 sensor set up, all other 5 are fine). I have sent Laurence RV a question about warranty, now I however wonder does that sensor after being dead for a few month or so need to be somehow re calibrated? Any help appreciated.

I know this thread is a few months old, so I apologize for bringing it back to life. I'm getting ready to purchase this system for my RV, and have a question. Is the weight of the sensor hanging off the extension for the inner rear wheel a concern? My RV has the plastic tube extensions, and I just wouldn't want resonance to set up going down the road and rip it off.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I have not heard of/seen plastic extensions ... scarey thought ...I would not use a plastic extension ...how long is the extension? While the TireTracker sensors are I believe the lightest on the market, I would not put them on anything except solid metal extensions/valve stems or on very short rubber stems perhaps on a toad.

I used TireTrakker sensors on rubber valve stems for several thousand miles with no problems, but that said I changed out to metal stems when I had the tires replaced. For obvious reasons metal stems are vastly superior in this application and I'd install them at the earliest reasonable opportunity.

My extensions are definitely plastic. They look to be 4" or 5", but I need to pull the wheel cover to see exactly what is going on there. I do not know if they are on a rubber or metal stem.

I'm going to wait on the tire pressure monitoring system until I determine what I need to do with the valve stems. Metal seems the way to go, so I may wait until we're not on the road in our RV to have them changed over. For the moment, we're over 2000 miles away from home and it's inconvenient to get work done while trying to live in the RV.

Thanks for all of the input!
