Pressure Pro TPS Sensor Replacement

I installed a Pressure Pro tire monitoring on my 2007 Airsream 25' FB and a 2006 GMC Sierra in 2007. I've removed the pressure monitors from the wheels to save the battery whenever I am not on a trip. As the units are 7 years old I'm looking into the replacement of the senssors as the batteries are getting old and don't want them failing on a trip. I was told when I purchased the system that replacemnet sensors would be sold for 1/2 the price of the new ones that were selling for $50. I just checked a few vendors online and saw replacement sensors being sold around $41 each. Not much of a discount! Has anyone replaced their Pressure Pro sensors and been able to get better pricing or are most folks buying a new system from another manufacturer with batteries that can replaced by the RV owner?

I've used Pressure Pro for years and have replaced several sensors. Just call Pressure Pro direct and they will send you new sensors at a discounted price. I think they are $35, maybe less. You'll get quick service directly from Pressure Pro.
Just checked--they were $35 each plus shipping; four ran me $148 total.

My Pressure Pro sensor batteries are user replaceable. Newer model I suppose?

Steve,
Is yours the "Advantage Pressure Pro"? I just checked their web site to see what I may have missed and ran across this info in their current catalog: "Sensor batteries are internal, non-rechargeable/not replaceable". I could find no info about any new models or sensors anywhere on their web site, so I'm confused by your statement.

Sorry guys, probably losing it here. I USED TO have a Pressure Pro. Got rid of it because I couldn't change the batteries. Now I have a Tire Minder.

I do it the old way,with a 18$ tire gauge, and when I stop every 2 hrs to walk my dog, I do a look see and feel my tires, it does work pretty well, I do the same thing with my large car which has 7 axles, never a tire failure on the road..

Just installed a TST from CW for a friend... really nice 6 sensor system for $300 all in... I also have a 7 year old PP and am thinking of the TST... it does temperature also.

FYI the new PP sensors also report temperature, but you have to "trade in" your original control panel for one that will accommodate the temperature readings. You can get cost info directly from PP.
Also, just a side note, some of my original PP sensor batteries lasted about 6 years before having to be replaced for failed batteries. I think a couple actually lasted 7 years.

When I had my LY moho, I used PressurePro monitors, and they worked fine. When I got the AS Excella, I went to TireMinders, as I wanted to be able to change the batteries. That did not work out - they were forever needing attention, requiring the spring terminals to be bent up, etc. When I had a tire failure and it didn't set off the Tireminder, I decided to remove them and go with something else. In the course of replacing my running gear (new axles, 16 Sendel wheels and Michelin LTX225/75R16(E) tires + Centramatics), I had the Dill sensors installed. So far, so good - it all works. There had been an issue with signal reception to the monitor, but using the external antenna with the magnetic base on the roof of the TV has solved that one.
