The monitor draws 60mA to 125 mA of power when it is under power and fully functional. The monitor could drain vehicle's battery over an extended period of time. Hooking the monitor up to enable the patented "sleep mode" will drastically reduce the power consumption over a long period. If storing for over 3 months, you might consider unplugging the monitor and removing the sensors for storage. (TIP: Clean egg cartons or plastic bags work well for storing the sensors.) Each sensor has its own serial number laser etched into the cover. Be sure to record the sensor ID numbers so the sensors can be replaced on the same tire location when re-installing them, eliminating the need for reprogramming. If a low-pressure alert is given while in storage, the sensor will alert until the pressure is corrected and could dramatically affect the battery life of the sensors. Sensor will shut down and stop transmitting when less than 5 lbs of air pressure are present. When putting system back on, power the monitor first, and then screw the sensors onto their original wheel locations. Pressure readings will display within a few minutes on the monitor. Your Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system will now be active.
Yes, the 12-volt plug adapter that is included on the Doran 360RV™ enables the system to be transferred to a tow vehicle.
Placing the Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring systems' 0.83-ounce sensor on a typical large vehicle will not normally necessitate re-balancing tires.
Doran monitors are patented with a "sleep mode" so that data transmissions from tire pressure sensors are received while the ignition is keyed off. Active tire pressures and alarm conditions are immediately visible on the Doran monitor/display when the ignition is keyed on.
Yes, this system works well with the majority of tow vehicles: auto, truck, fifth wheel, boat trailer, horse trailer and others. The monitor on the Doran 360RV™ tire pressure monitoring system is extremely flexible for a variety of applications.
The monitor and LCD display is similar in size to a standard chalkboard eraser or dollar bill. The dimensions are width (5.75") x height (2.25") x depth (1.00").
Active tire pressure readings are visible on the Doran display. Simply tap a button to scroll through each individual tire/wheel position.
Tap any button on the Doran monitor/display to silence the audible alert.
In addition to our internal quality tests, the Doran 360™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System has been approved by the FCC and tested to SAE standards for temperature, vibration and chemical/water resistance at an independent a2La accredited testing facility.
The Doran 360RV™ 360HD™ and 360OTR™ systems monitor up to 36 wheel positions (9 axles with 4 positions per axle)
The Doran 360 SmartLink™ system monitors up to 38 wheel positions with10 wheel positions on a truck (3 axles with 2 steer tires and 8 drive tires) and 28 wheel positions (7 axles with 4 positions per axle) on a trailer
The Doran 360OC™ One-Click™ system will monitor up to 20 wheel positions (5 axles with 4 positions per axle)
The Doran 360MT™ Multi-Trailer system will monitor up to 160 wheel positions with 8 hubs monitoring 20 wheel positions (5 axles with 4 positions per axle)
Make sure to leave the sensors off of the valve stem until the system is fully programmed. Once you have all of the sensor codes programmed into the correct locations, exit out of program mode and then screw on the sensors. The sensors won't signal the monitor otherwise.
If that doesn't work, make sure the valve stems are releasing air properly. You should hear a hiss of air when screwing on the sensors. If you don't hear it, your valve stem needs to be fixed or replaced in order for the sensor to be able to properly read air pressure.
Yes it can. You can move the monitor to a new vehicle and reprogram the Doran 360™ Tire Pressure Monitoring System to the new tires and you are on your way.
The Doran 360RV™ only works with 12VDC but all other Doran tire monitoring systems work in both 12VDC and 24VDC voltage.
There are multiple reasons for an alarm to be triggered on a Doran tire pressure monitoring system:
- Air pressure has dropped 12.5% of your baseline tire pressure. This alert will continuously transmit once per second until low pressure is corrected or a button is pressed to place Monitor in Quiet Mode.
- Air pressure has dropped to the second alert level, 25% below the programmed baseline tire pressure.
- A rapid loss of air pressure (4.5psi in under 16 seconds) has occurred and the Fast Leak! alarm is triggered.
- The optional High Pressure Alarm is activated, and tire pressure is 25% above the programmed baseline pressure.
- The tire pressure sensor has captured a temperature reading of 175deg F (80deg C)
- The Doran monitor has not received a transmission from a programmed tire pressure sensor for over 60 minutes.
NSP= No Sensors Programmed
You'll seee this until the system is programmed with the sensor codes and the monitor has received a signal from the sensors.
It is recommended that tire pressures be checked regularly using a high-quality pressure gauge when the tires are at ambient temperatures, in addition to the use of a tire pressure monitoring system. Remove the sensor, check pressure, and inflate if necessary. When you return the sensor to the valve stem, the sensor will begin to read the current pressure and return to its normal operation.
Immediately pull over and check low tire. Physically check the tire and repair, if necessary. Be sure to check valve stem for damage. Soap the valve stem to identify any leaks.

They both essentially work the same way; by boosting the signal of the sensor for a more consistent tire pressure reading. While the Remote Antenna Kit is the preferred and less expensive method, it is more difficult to install.
The Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system was designed with a "Green Means Good™" indicator light, which lets the driver know all of the tire pressures are within the specified range. The operator can see each tire's pressure by using the four-way navigational buttons. In addition, there are multiple alarm types that are built-in to the system to make the driver aware of any tire pressure issues.
