The system will check for the following alerts every 6 seconds (please note, if no issue is found, the transmitters will provide updated tire data every 4 minutes):
- Rapid Leak - Pressure loss of 3 PSI or more in less than 2 minutes.
- Slow Leak - Pressure loss of 6 PSI or more in 2 to 10 minutes.
- Low Pressure - Pressure loss of 15% or more of the baseline pressure.
- High Pressure - Pressure increase of 20% or more of the baseline pressure.
- High Temperature - Internal tire temperature at or above 167°F (75°C).
- High Temperature - Internal tire temperature that exceeds 185°F (85°C).
In the event of a tire issue, the appropriate alert will be displayed in both the app and a push notification on your phone. Also, the Bluetooth Adapter will blink red and beep.
If an alert occurs, don’t panic.
If an alert does appear on your display, please remain calm. Remember, DO NOT PANIC! Also, the DRIVER SHOULD NEVER try to figure out what the problem is. Let your husband (or wife), co-pilot, navigator, partner, etc., look at the monitor and try to determine the cause of the alert.
What to do if an alert occurs.
If you receive a leaking alert, please note how much air is left in your tire. If you are running 110 psi (normal) and the alert has come on at 95 psi, you may decide to drive to the next rest stop. If the pressure drops significantly or more rapidly, cautiously bring the vehicle to a safe, off-road location to check the offending tire.
If you receive a high pressure alert, cautiously bring the vehicle to a stop and check the offending tire. If the high pressure is “within reason” you may need to adjust your baseline pressures. Not sure what to do, call us!
If you receive a high temperature alert, cautiously “get off the road” & determine the cause of the overheating. In most cases, this will be due to a brake caliper that is sticking or a bearing which has overheated.
