Hello RMB..

Are you referring to tire pressure sensors?

I have Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems from both Doran and PressurePro and both work well for me.

See more more about them and why I have both in my "TPMS update", History Safari Express, Airstream Life Online Community.

Hi all. I too am interested in a TPMS. Went to CW in So. Cal and they wanted to sell me Tire Minders for $218.00. Anyone know about them, and they did not carry Pressure Pro. How much is Pressure Pro, and where can it be purchased?

Thanks everyone.

After using both systems for a while, what would be the pros/cons of each? Do you prefer one over the other?

I know Sean at ProPride has the Pressure Pro monitors. That's who I ordered mine from.

I bought my PressurePro tire monitor for $170 from tirepressuremonitor.com last January. The price today on their website is $190. Each sensor currently costs $50. (Therefore, a PressurePro monitor and 4 sensors today would total $390.)

About two and a half years ago I purchased the Doran monitor and 4 sensors for a total of $399 from doranmfgstore.com. As of this posting today, their price for a 4 wheel tire pressure monitoring system is $299.99.

In my "TPMS - Update" article I explained why I now have both systems. Since I have only used the PressurePro on one camping trip last month (to see the desert wildflowers), it is too soon to really give a fair comparison, listing pros and cons, of the two systems.

Both systems worked flawlessly on our last trip. There are a few differences that I can comment on. I like the smaller size of the Doran monitor, which easily fits in one of the F-250 pull-out compartment drawers and attaches with the supplied self-mating fastener tape. See more details on how I installed this system here.

I found that I like the different 3-digit serial numbers found on the top of each Doran sensor, which helps in getting each sensor back on to its assigned tire location at the beginning of each trip. (I remove the sensors after each trip to conserve their batteries.) PressurePro sensors have no distinguishing marks on them, so I store them in separately marked ziplock bags.

See more pros and cons of these and other systems here on this AirForums thread: Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.

I am installing the Tire Sentry system by Fleet Specialties on my TV and trailer.

Has anyone got a comment on the valve stem defection after putting these caps on their rigs. I ask this because I did see one individual that had sensors on his traielr and after the first trip the sensors had deflected enough to mark his aluminum wheels.

I really don't want to invest in demounting, metal stems and rebalancing 10 wheels if this was a single incident.

I like the Doran. You'll need steel valve stems, which add to the expense. After lots of trials, I settled on the Bracketron mount. It looks good, has a low profile, and is easily removable for mounting in another vehicle or for stowing when you aren't towing. I don't need a signal amplifier with my 31 footer. You'll have to take off your Maui Jims to read each tire's pressure but the green light is very comforting when all is well. The red light and the alarm will save a tire and maybe big time trailer damage. Put this at the top of the essential accessory list.

If you're running "d" rated tires or greater, you should have metal valve stems anyway, due to higher pressures required.
