many of the new vehicles come equipped now with tpms...

i don't think the new mandate for this includes the bigger trucks.

for multi axle trailers the real value of tpms is in preventing damage TO wheel well area...

since the low pressure tire or flat is seldom noticed by the driver...

i think there are a couple of threads here on this issue (not being aware) of towing with a lame trailer tire.

lots of creative uses for surplus sensor/sending units...

flatulence is on 'over pressure' event, and some models do have this potential...

but i'm not gonna be the one installing those sensors

and would the manufacturer accept returns if used that way?

GEORGE: (Not sure what the answer should be) What do you want to hear?

GEORGE: They made me buy it..
A hundred bucks this thing cost me. (Gesturing to the book) How dare they?!
I got news for you, if it wasn't for the toilet, there would be no books.
JERRY: (Sarcastic) Yeah. I understand Guttenberg used to spend a lot of time in there.
GEORGE: They're selling coffee, bran muffins.. you're surrounded by reading material. It's entrapment!... "



"Cashier: I'm sorry, we can't take this book back.
George: Why not?
Cashier: It's been flagged.
George: Flagged?
Cashier: It's been in the bathroom.
George: It says that on the computer?

Doran 360 installed. Easy to set monitor, easy to install sensors. The locking part has 3 allen screws that seat against the metal part of the valve stem. One will lock it pretty well, 2 better. They gave an allen wrench for each locking device so I can lose 3 of them. It'll be a pain when it comes time to take it off. It tells me low and high pressure and reads the pressure in each tire. It takes more time to read the manual than to install all the items. The monitor will handle up to 36 tires if you want to buy that many sensors. Everything worked, will drive away in a few days.

Doran 360RV Tire Pressure Monitoring System

There are many more options for mounting without an extra charge for them. The suction cup option has three suction cups and seems to provide extra stability compared to one cup. I'm trying it on the windshield. If you want to stick it on a flat empty place on the dashboard, they provided 6 pieces of Velcro with sticky backs, but all of them were for only one side of the Velcro; there should have been three fuzzy ones to match the ones that look like miniature beds of plastic nails...

The "Velcro" is actually a self-mating, dual-lock fastener tape like this. It worked great for me in mounting my new Doran 360RV Tire Pressure Monitoring System in the perfect location in our F-250 truck.

Full story of how well this monitoring system works and why it is important to use it can be read here: Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

I found out later the new style velcro is different and all of it looks the same. I actually used a few pieces on the propane cover as a buffer to keep it from getting scratched on the assembly for the equalizer hitch. It sticks really well.

The suction cups stick well too as they have been on the windshield since last spring and haven't slipped or come off. The monitor sags a little and ends up resting on the wire and the wire wears a small space on the dashboard. I couldn't use the velcro because Toyota uses some amazing material on the dash that almost nothing will stick to.

The important part is the system works very well and was easy to set up. Though the locking things that come with the sensors have very, very small allen screws in them and one or two of those screws seem to have worn and are hard to turn. Doran has said they will replace them, but I haven't gotten around to it.

What about customer service? Costco won't be able to help you.

I bought the Doran 360 directly from Doran and the customer service is good. I couldn't find any discounts. The price was the same as Pressure Pro—$400 for monitor and four sensors.

The Doran had more mounting options and I like the monitor better.

Metal Value Stems?

I just purchased the Pressure Pros from the manufacturer and he suggested on the phone, I swap out the original values stems to a metal stem. I have read the entire thread, I do not see anyone mentioning replacement of their original stems.

Can I install them on my Marathon tires as is and not worry? That's what it sounds like everyone is doing?

Any suggestions or thoughts on the metal stems if or when this must be done and a brand if possible.

Thanks

Rubber valve stems aren't rated for the maximum pressure used in Marathon tires. On top of that, there was a whole bunch (30 million) of chinese rubber valve stems that were recalled for cracks.

If your rubber valve stem fails, you will lose your new pressure sensor. Although it will beep like crazy to let you know its gone AWOL.

Thanks for the clarification I have marathon tires

Does that mean I have metal stems on the Marathon tires?
