The display appears to show only the MH and not the toad. At least at the same time. Check out TST and EEZTire displays as they show MH and toad at the same time.

We've been using the Tire Safeguard for about a year and a half and like it a lot. Unlike what another poster said, it does show both motorhome and toad. It constantly cycles through each tire in turn. On the forums, a lot of people using other brands seem to need a booster to pick up signals from their toad. We have a 43' diesel pusher and have always been able to pick up the toad signals just fine without a booster.
When I first installed it, I had a question and called the company. They were very helpful.
If you get one, there is no need to use the little set screws. They're just a theft prevention device but make it harder to get them on and off so I leave them off.

Both I and iRV2 member "Dr4Film" have the Tire-SafeGuard (T-SG) system. I have flow-throughs on the duallies, cap-type on the fronts and the toad. I'm considering going cap-type for the duallies, in hopes that they work reliably with the valve stem extensions that came on the coach (and/or, may replace the extensions before trading out the flow-throughs). This is more a comment about the valve stem extensions than the T-SG sensors.

As "lucyh" says, the display cycles between coach and toad tires, completing a cycle about every 30 seconds. Problems display immediately.

I do turn on the display unit an hour before "takeoff," as the sensors take time to report in.

You can replace the batteries yourself. I was advised to replace the tiny o-rings at the same time. I replaced the batteries at the two-year mark, before any failed.

I like the fact that I can enter an offset between my manual pressure gauge and what the T-SG system reads, so that I see the pressures closer to what I'd find with the gauge.

I have only dealt with one person (Dion) at the company that sells T-SG. Often he responds quickly; sometimes I have to pester him (Sorry, Dion!). That's the biggest drawback to having the T-SG system, in my opinion.

If you can, you (or the moderator) may want to correct the spelling of the title of this thread, from "Tire SafeGauard" to "Tire SafeGuard" or "Tire-SafeGuard." This would help the search engine, maybe.

If you have other T-SG questions better answered by that method, feel free to send me a private message.

I have the Tire-Safe Guard and have been using it for about 5 months and one trip across the USA from Washington to Florida and had zero problems with it. It actually paid for itself the first month as I had an inside dual going flat and did not feel it.
The unit comes pre-programmed with however many sensors you order, the labelling is very easy to understand. They are a breeze to install.
I purchased this unit as I have a 40ft DP and di not want to spend more money or go to the hassle of wiring a booster. Every other unit I looked at stated I had to have a booster. Some say it is very easy, but I thought why would I want to waste time doing that when I can get a unit that does not need a booster?
The range on the unit is amazing my wife was behind me in the toad, at least 100 feet and it was still reading the toad.
Yes it does not display both the toad and the RV on the same screen but it scrolls through.
You can also change it so you do not have to display the toad or the RV if you so choose. If you take the RV w/o the toad you change it so it only shows the toad.
I like the unit a lot and highly recommend it.

I've had the Tire-Safeguard on my last 3 motor homes and decided to buy another popular brand and save a little money on my present coach (they leak air, won't work with many/most valve extenders, not accurate). After 10 years 3 motor homes with the Tire-Safeguard I only had two problems that was quickly taken care of. The cheaper popular system was a big mistake, as soon as funds are available I will go buy what I know works the best for me, the Tire-Safeguard System...
