could be some thing to think about

Never thought of this, will try to take note the next time my alarms go off.

To the original poster, check out my post and the problems I've had, still have no solution.

Answer, as they pass, at some point their sensor will be much "Stronger" and will "Capture" your receiver, setting off the low pressure alarm.

Based on the behavior I am seeing (sudden drop of pressure to a specific value (50 psi or 30 psi versus the actual 85), then return to the correct value I would tend to believe this reasoning. HOWEVER - I have been acting under the belief that the sensors had unique ID codes to identify them to the receiver so as to preclude interference (they certainly have unique serial numbers). Is that not the case, and there are actually a limited number of broadcast ID codes for the sensors, so that interference from a passing sensor would then be possible????

This was on a 36 ft Tiffin Red. I have now installed the same Tire Safeguard on our New 2014 Phaeton and in 1,500 miles no such alarms.
I was reading this post and see you have a 2014 Phaeton, and you have a tire safeguard system. We are in the process of buying both. Please tell me about your Phaeton, how you like it or don't like it. If it is not too personal, give me an idea what you paid before taxes for the unit? Anything you can tell me would be appreciated.
