TPMS - Tire-SafeGuard

We purchased Tire-SafeGuard Model TTPM-12R8R4N from Intelligent Vehicle Products Inc (Norwalk, CA) on 8/11/2020 for our RV and tow vehicle. Intelligent Vehicle Products was very helpful on any questions and issues with the sensors. Currently, we have one sensor on the left rear dually that reads 7# and one on the tow vehicle that reads extremely high numbers or does not read at all. We have attempted several times to contact Intelligent Vehicle Products on the office phone number and the salesperson's phone number. Both are still good numbers, however; we get no response from messages left at either number. Does anyone have information on this company, know where we can get replacement sensors or how to reprogram these? Thank you.

I finally reached Dion at Tire-Safeguard about replacement sensors and he told me they are out of business and they sold all of their remaining stock. I am looking at replacing my entire system.

Ok I bought an eeztire with the color screen (E618) and 10 sensors. 6 flow thru and 4 anti theft. The same configuration as I had on my old tire safeguard.

First impression:

The screen is huge. I'm 63 years old and wear glasses to read. The pressure and temperature numbers are about 1 inch tall. The angle you look at the screen matters. Looking down at the screen seems to give me the brightest view. This will effect where I mount it in the RV. Will not be mounting it above my head.

It was easy enough to program each sensor. Although I don't have clear finger nail polish lying about. The polish is for covering the position stickers.

Simple uncluttered display of data. Some people like all the tires to be display at once, I do not. To much information for me to take in while driving. Eyes on the road. I want a red indicator and audio alert when something is wrong.

I like how it is powered, a common usb-c connector. I can charge it by plugging it in to a USB port on my dash or wire it directly to 12v. Comes with both. I think I am going with hard wiring.

* When I first programmed and installed the sensors on the toad, they were each about 4 psi low. Not good, but tolerable. I got to playing around with it a hit the button combo "Link and Code" at the same time. This showed me a screen that looked this "000 0ft". The + and - key would change the 000 to 100, 200, 300 up to 900 and then start over. It took me awhile but I figured out it was not 000 I was looking at but 0000 ft. This is an altitude adjustment. I set it to my current altitude and the sensors now show the correct psi. I did not find this is in the manual.

I have programmed and install the sensors on the RV, but won't be traveling till next month on the way to Michigan. There is a spot on I-25 going thru Denver that would always give me a fault alarm on my old tire-safeguard. I am looking forward to see if this one does the same.

Enough for now, will try to update later.
