I only travel two or three times a year, so I remove them from the toad after each trip. If the trips are less than a month apart, they stay on. I'm less concerned about battery life than breaking one, although extending battery life is worthwhile (in my opinion).

I also have summer and winter wheel/tire sets for the toad, so at a minimum they'd be moved twice a year, anyway.

I have them on my TOAD all the time whether it is being towed or driven daily. I have a monitor that stays in the TOAD all the time and one in the coach all the time.

The only time when the TPMS sensors are removed from the TOAD is when I am towing the cargo trailer with the TOAD inside. Then they are on the trailer tires.

Once we are at our destination, I remove the sensors from the coach and store them in a box. I turn on the TPMS in the car and it stays on until which time the TOAD is put back inside the trailer and sensors installed back onto the trailer or the TOAD is being towed.

I totally trust the Tire SafeGuard TPMS and use it ALL the time when I am driving anyone of my vehicles.

I have one on my motorcycle, one on my coach, one on my wife's car and one on my daily driver.

I want to know what the tire psi conditions are and the tire temps as my life is riding on them.

I have the TST 12-sensor and just switched from the flow-through sensors to the cap sensors. With the flow-through sensors, I removed the 4 toad sensors if our stay was longer than a few nights mainly because they stuck out so darn far. I was concerned about theft as well as forgetting to remove them if I drove through a car wash.

The new cap sensors are a much lower profile design, and also much more secure. I will probably only remove them when the motorhome is in storage, and make a habit of changing batteries once a year. I don't know yet how long the batteries last (TST recommends replacing them annually) but the sensors will not transmit if they are not under pressure.
