How to Install the TireMinder RV and Trailer i10 TPMS on a 2018 Coachmen Leprechaun Motorhome


Hey, everyone. Shane here with etrailer.com. Today I have a 2018 Coachmen Leprechaun Motorhome. I'm gonna walk through how to install a TireMinder Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Adding a tire pressure monitor system on your RV, in my opinion, is essential. So let's face it.

RVs are heavy. You know, it may come a time when you may blow a tire while you're traveling and it's too late. Maybe you don't know until the tire actually blows. Adding a tire pressure monitor system allows you to monitor the air pressure, so hopefully you can get the tire fixed before you actually get a blowout. So you're going to monitor high leaks, slow leaks, high pressure, low pressure, and high temperature.

For instance, these tires, the maximum PSI is 80. Let's say if somebody who's driving this keeps them at about 70 PSI, 71 PSI on a normal basis. With the tire monitoring system in place, if the tire pressure drops or raises, once you have it set at that 70 PSI, if it raises or drops within 6 PSI, it's going to alert you. Nice thing about having the alert is, hopefully, you can catch it before you actually get a blowout and potentially hurt yourself or somebody else on the road. These are what our sensors look like.

There's actually a single battery on the inside and the batteries are replaceable. It actually is going to come with a few extra batteries if you need to replace them, but you can find extra ones here at etrailer. And when I hooked it up, it already alerted me. But what I did is I turned it off. I had the minimum tire pressure or the tire pressure set at 70.

So I'm going to do is I'm gonna turn it back on 'cause I know these tires are low and I'm going to show you what it actually does when it alerts you. So you can see it's beeping low tire pressure and it puts a red ring around what tires are low. Now, as far as some of the alarms you will get. For your high pressure leaks, if you have a high pressure leak and the pressure in the tire drops 3 PSI within two minutes, it's automatically gonna alert you. It'll say high pressure leak and it'll tell you which tire it is or it will put a ring around which tire it is. For your low pressure leak. If you have a low pressure leak, if you lose 6 PSI within 2 to 10 minutes, it's gonna alert you, again, and tell you which tire. For our low pressure setting. So if we have our tire, each one of our tires, set at 70 PSI as a baseline, if that tire pressure has dropped because it could be weather, it could be anything, has dropped 15% or more below that baseline pressure, it's going to alert you, which is what these two right here are showing us right now. We have 15% less air in her tires than what we need. For high pressure. If our tire, we have our baseline set, if our tire raises 20% or more above that baseline pressure we have set, it's going to alert us, again, tell us which tire. It also will alert us if the temperature rises. So for monitoring mode, we push the center button. It's going to show you what we set up these tires for our baseline pressure. You'll notice a PSI is flashing. If we press the center button again. It's going to switch over to the Fahrenheit. Now, we can change this to PSI or bar. We got it switched over to Fahrenheit. We press the center button and we can toggle through there and we can change our air pressure to, if we want to raise air pressure, a minimum air pressure, or whatever it may be, per the tire. Switch to bar by pushing one of the arrows. Fahrenheit and Celsius. This kit is going to come with a charger, a 12-volt charger. It's also going to come with a suction cup window mount or dash mount. Color screen. Very easy to see. You can see the light's pretty bright on it. For our suction cup, it just mounts right in the back. We'll take it, slide it in like that. And then we can mount our suction cup wherever we feel necessary or feel safe with it being mounted on her dash or on our glass. There's also 4 sensor kits and 10 sensor kits. However, you can buy sensors separately. It's going to monitor up to 20 tires, all at one time, and allow you to swap between four different vehicles. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's walk you through how to get it installed. First thing you gonna to do is locate your house batteries. Now, most RVs like this, they're going to be right under your second step. Then we need to determine where to mount our signal booster. The idea is to try to get this as far back as possible. And we want it outside underneath the vehicle. 'Cause what it does, it actually receives a signal as it bounces off the ground. So what we're going to do is this box actually drops down. I'm going to mount this right on the side of the box, right here on this side, on the bottom. I'm going to route the two alligator clips. There's a little opening right here. I'm going to run them right inside. And then we can make our connections later on with that. To mount this, we can use self-tappers. They don't come with mounting hardware. I'm just going to use some little self-tappers to install it. So I want to mount this just like this. And if we look right up in here is where that hole is. We'll take our self-tapper, and we can route the two alligator clips, right up through this hole, into our battery box. That'll keep our wires up, out of the way, protected. And then what I'll do later on is I'll come back where that wires touching that metal edge, I'll just come back and put something on it, so it doesn't potentially wear a spot in there and cause a short. We're gonna take our two alligator clips. We're going to hook one to the positive post. And one to negative. What you're looking for is that green light to come on your signal booster. Now, as far as the alligator clips, it's really up to you, you can cut the wires, they are pretty thin, and add a ring terminal and add them to each post. Keep in mind, even though you shut your power off, or your battery power off, to the camper, you're still running these directly to the battery. So it's always going to be on. It's not going to draw a whole lot of power but let's say you leave it sitting for several months on end. It could potentially run it down enough where you may have an issue When you go to start it. Having them like this with the alligator clips, once you're done for the winter or something, you can go in and just pull off one of the clips and disconnect it from the battery. Once you have your signal booster installed and it's powered up, you're gonna come, you can start on either side of the vehicle, I like to start at the front. You're gonna to have a nut that comes in the kit for each valve stem. We're going to thread that nut on. We're gonna take all of our sensors and we're going to insert one of the batteries that comes with it. We're gonna thread it onto the end of the valve stem and then we're going to tighten the nut up against it. It's going to come with a little wrench so you can do that. We're going to turn on our screen, by pushing the center button. The left and right arrow, we're going to push them at the same time. We're going to hold them and basically it goes in when you see the L in the middle, it's in learn mode. Once you're in learn mode, if you choose your position, which we're the front left driver's side, we'll screw on the first transmitter. It automatically brings it up. We'll use our arrows and now we'll go over and do the passenger side. And we'll just keep repeating that until we get all of our sensors in place. And you can set it up however you want. This particular motor home has six wheels. So now I'm going to go back over to the driver's side, we'll do the outside wheel and then we'll do the inside wheel. And we can go over and do the same thing on the passenger side. Once you have all your sensors installed, you're going to press the left and right arrow to switch you back to monitoring mode. Once you get to monitoring mode, we can set a tire minimum or maximum pressure. Hold down the center button. It'll toggle over to your first tire. It allows you to change tire pressure. So we're going to set it at the maximum of 80 PSI. Hit our square button and it'll move over to the next one. And do that same thing with all of our tires. You want to make sure you read the rear tires to make sure they're not a different pressure or the maximum pressure is not different. Now with her maximum pressure or tire pressure is set at 80, the low pressure sensor came on to tell us that our tires are low and you can see it has a red square that surrounds it to tell us which ones are low. So now that we have the towed vehicle or the flat towed vehicle behind our motor home hooked up to our system, it's going to automatically toggle between the two, so it will monitor both. once you've got all your sensors installed, you're basically ready to go. You can switch this from front to back to where you can do the front wheels and the back wheels. We're actually adding another vehicle. So I left every wheel or tire on this vehicle for the front. And when I add to the second vehicle, I'm going to put those on the back. Once you've added all those, you're really ready to go. That's gonna to do it for look at and installation on the TireMinder Tire Pressure Monitor System on a 2018 Coachmen Leprechaun Motorhome..
