I am a 32 year technician and RVDA Master Certified. I've seen a variety of TPMS's and this is the only one I've seen/sold that actually works. The wireless range is excellent. I've had this system show the tire pressure on a tow dinghy vehicle that was over 1/4 mile away from the base in the RV. I recommend the flow through sensors because they allow the tires to be inflated without removing the sensors. These also allow using the actual Tire Safeguard monitor wirelessly as a pressure gauge while inflating. There may be additional tire valve extenders needed in order to get the sensors where they need to be. The flow through sensors are rather large and must be installed where there is enough space. I recommend either a solid valve extender or high quality hoses with good mounting brackets. Most gas coaches need a 4" solid inside rear wheel extension and a 45º solid outside rear wheel extender. Most diesel coaches work as is. The 1 star deduction is because I feel the base unit (monitor) set up is not intuitive. The tires sensors must be acclimated to the base and the directions are weak. Please note, the sensors are slow to read and send the pressure to the monitor when inflating. You must allow enough time for the sensor to get the actual tire pressure, not the inflating pressure.

I did a lot of research before buying this item. I pull a 30ft trailer with 2 axels behind a full size pickup. On my last trip I had a flat on the trailer. Before I was aware there was problem I destroyed 2 tires and a wheel, as well as doing body damage to the trailer. I wanted a unit that didn't need a signal booster for the trailer tire sensors. I could not get the first unit to work. I worked with tech. support (they were great and easy to work with) and they ended up sending a new unit. The second unit worked great. I just finished a 1500 mile trip with the truck and trailer. The system was great. I was able to monitor temp and pressure on all 4 trailer tires and the 2 back tires on the truck instead of worrying about them. I never lost signal to any of the tires. Nice not worrying about trailer tires. If you pull a trailer and cant see the tires in you mirrors while on the road get this unit, you will be glad you did. The only complaint I have is the directions that come with the unit are a little weak. But like I said there tech. support is great and they got all set up.

As a new owner of a 24ft class C motorhome, I followed several message boards trying to find out as much information as I could. Several people recommended TPMS (I wish they were standard/required like in cars). I did some online research and decided on the HCI Flow Through System. Just following the online videos and instruction book, they were easy to install. In my case, the flow through sensors had enough clearance on the rear dualllies but the clearance on the front wheel simulator would only allow the cap type sensor. I contacted the supplier and they quickly exchanged the two flow through for cap type sensors. It was easy to program.. On a previous RV, I had an inside right rear tire blowout after exiting some curvy mountain roads. I am glad that it happened after the mountain but it Is not something I want to experience again. Hopefully the TPMS will give me plenty of advance warning on any air losses.

Problem #1 12 volt charger does not work. Had to use replacement. Main problem, readings erratic from sensors. Pressure reading not consistent. Temperature reading very wrong. About half the sensors show tire temperature below outside temperature. We all know how important temperature is. Sensor 6 worked for about 2 hours then died. Pulled battery to reset. Same issue after 1 hour. Problem 3. Pressure readings no where close at actual tire pressure. Emailed seller for RMA. They want to replace unit with another. So I have to pay for return shipping on this product and again when the next one fails. I sent an email to Amazon for assistance. I bought this hoping it would be an item you could trust. No one wants a blown tire on there RV. I can't trust the readings and I do not believe this is an isolated failure with this product. Too many things wrong with unit.

On an overcast day (no sun on the tires) I set all my duals to the exact same pressure using a digital pressure gauge. These units reported pressure variations on all tires. Some up near 6 or 7 lbs. difference. I realize they probably won't display the exact same pressure as the guage I was using but they all should have reported the tires being at equal pressure.

I kept checking and rechecking pressures to try to get things to make sense but could not.

I called the factory to see if there was a way to calibrate the units so at least they indicate equal pressure on all 4 tires.

Individual units cannot be calibrated.

I found this to be very discouraging as dual tires have to be kept at very close tolerances or tire wear and failure can happen.

Great value, much cheaper than replacing one tire. Easy to install and operate! I wish that i had purchased this unit sooner.

This product is much better than the TST system so far. First, there was no programming of individual tires (not sure what happens if one of them breaks). Second, the valve system design activated all of my tires without hassle where as the TST system did not activate all of my tires. Third, the battery cap is 100 times more substantial than TST. Time will tell if the bodies hold up better.

Great tire monitor for the RV. Has worked fine and tells you when a tire is low with an alarm. The pass through air is a great feature.

Very easy to install and really enjoy being able to watch pressures and temperatures while I drive. The pressures agree with my tire gauge.

I friend of mine bought another brand and we found that my TPMS was much easier to set up than his.
