Three years ago, I purchased a "NVision" TPMS from a local RV dealer. ($500)
It too used four sensors, one for each wheel, that had to be 'introduced' to each tire position.
For the first year it worked ok, giving me tire pressures and a green light saying 'everything is good'.
The second year, I would get an orange light occasionally on the RT. FRONT tire, then it would go to green for awhile, then orange.
I swapped sensors, to see if the 'snag' followed the sensor, but no; it showed RH. FWD. all the time.
I then purchased a new set of two sensors, ($190) and tried one on the RH/FWD tire.
STILL got orange light, occasionally changing to green when underway.
I stayed with this unit, reasoning that as long as it didn't show Red, I could live with it.
This year, I got a RED light, (tire checked OK) then after awhile green/orange/green when underway. PHOOEY!
At a local speed shop, I purchased ANOTHER 'NVision' TPM. ($429), and after an hour with the tech rep in Kansas, was able to get the machine to accept the sensors. This, after using one of the spare sensors, that I had previously purchased.
I wanted the security of knowing my tire condition, because of a planned trip to Sudbury; a long way away.
The next day, when underway, the 'NVision' did not work at all, showing me no tire information. That was enough! So..........
Upon return to Blenheim, it took me two weeks to get a refund from the store for the second set, and I sent the original one back to the Mfgr. so the Engineers can figure it out.
I'm now using a set of tire pressure valve caps from Amazon, that show green band at 50 PSI, and red lower.
I now have an excuse to do an occasional 'walk-around'.
They will be tested out this weekend on another trip.

Curious statement
Yes, I do have a travel trailer, but......
I thought that the Forum was about ALL Airstreams.

Hi Mel, there are actually several forums under the general heading "Air Forums" This forum is called "Sprinter and "B" Van Forum" which is a sub-category of the "Airstream Motorhome Forum". Of course anyone is allowed to participate but you will find a lot of discussion here that is not relative to the trailers.

I have the Doran system..... No complaints at all.

I was a bit concerned about sensor battery life but after three years in heat and cold - they still function fine.

It was easy to set up and its easy to mothball.

Cheers
