I have had the Doran system for about 3 years now. I added the option antenna underneath and to the rear of the motorhome and have had no signal trouble.

While it is a bit of a bother, when parked at home or at a camp ground, I always remove the sensors from the valve stems. This saves or extends the life of the internal batteries and prevents someone from stealing them.

I have never lost a sensor or had one stolen - and THAT was a concern of mine when I bought the Pressure Pro.

I added their extended antenna, mounting the antenna just ahead of the rear axle and that took care of ALL the dropped signals from the duals AND the toad.

I like the portability of the Pressure Pro as I can use it on the motor home or move it to my truck/trailer, car, etc.

I've had the system 4-5 years now and it's still going like the Energizer Bunny!!

I just returned from the rally in Yucaipa and all wheels are now working most of the time but the inside rear and the toad loses signal occasionally.
Has anyone tried to extend the wire to the antenna by splicing, adding wire and mounting the antenna in the middle of the coach as to not drop the signal from the toad and inside rear wheels?

Jim- It was great to see you at Yucaipa. I have the Doran unit and sometimes loose readings from the passenger side rear. Where, EXACTLY, have you mounted the antenna for your set-up? Could it be mounted in the battery compartment? How and where is the wire connector from the antenna run, and to what?

Thanks, Rick

Hi Rick
We too had a great time at the rally and it was nice seeing you again. I have the antenna on the dash and not really mounted as of yet. This unit just started to work correctly with all sensors sending signal. On the way home I lost signal on 2 right wheels of the toad and right inside wheel. I have been playing around with the antenna while it's parked and the signal is better when I move it to the rear of the coach. If I can maintain a signal there I would like to mount it center coach. It will require extending the antenna wire. I do not want to cut the wire to the antenna before I know if it would have a negative effect and no longer work at all.
