RVIA Economic Impact Study

The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association commissioned an Economic Impact Study on the RV industry, released on June 7, 2016. The study found that the RV industry contributes about $49.7 billion in economic output or 0.28 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. Through its production and distribution linkages, the industry impacts firms in 426 of the 440 sectors of the United States economy.

Nationwide, the industry is responsible for 216,170 jobs, both directly and inderectly, creating an economic impact of $37.5 billion. The full study results, along with each individual state and congressional district's economic impact is available on the website by clicking here .

Advantage PressurePro Announces New Dynamic Sensor

Fri Jul 21, 2017

150064804987217.jpgAdvantage PressurePro has announced the new Dynamic Sensor, the first sensor-based release to the company's TPMS+ platform, that was debuted in 2015.

"At PressurePro, we’re proud of our standing as the originators of commercial and aftermarket Tire Performance Management Solutions," Advantage PressurePro Chief Operations Officer Vanessa Hargrave said in an email. "More, we honor our hard-earned standing as the pioneers of our industry. Since 1991, we’ve lead the innovation of TPMS technology, continuously advancing our offerings and expanding markets across the globe, while remaining firmly rooted to our family-owned values and American Made standards. (This product) helps us further our mission to revolutionize tire maintenance practices."

The Dynamic Sensor builds upon PressurePro’s market leading Sensor options, arming users with a full range of improved capabilities. The first of these is enhanced accuracy across pressure ranges, utilizing cutting-edge technology to tighten pressure report precision to within 1-2 percent, even during high-pressure situations. More, Dynamic Sensors unlock higher temperature resolution, giving RVers the ability to add real time tire temperature readings in variances of less than 2.5 degrees.

PressurePro’s Dynamic Sensor also presents users with increased reporting during periods of rigorous use. Recognizing demanding working conditions as tires breach 150 degrees, Sensors will automatically trigger increased sampling and reporting rates, ensuring unmatched reliability and safety when tires are being worked their hardest.

The Dynamic Sensors also feature never-before-seen and patent pending ‘smart reference pressure logic’. While historical TPMS technology was handcuffed by the necessity to use static baselines to set alert parameters, PressurePro unlocks those restraints with a sensing method allowing the company to continuously fine-tune alert limits based on unique working pressures.

Traditional TPMS logic presents users with a stationary baseline pressure that is used to set alarms. This method, while sometimes adequate, left users wanting due to its rigidity. When at work, tires warm and pressures rise. A tire with optimal cold inflation of 100 PSI can easily reach 130 during operation. If a problem arose during this working period, large gaps in time and losses of pressure could occur before alerts were triggered. With the same example, the working tire (not at 130 PSI) would have to drop all the way to 90 PSI to trigger a low pressure alert set at just a 10 percent deviation.

While still providing traditional ‘ceiling’ and ‘floor’ alerts, PressurePro’s Dynamic Sensors give users an added layer of protection with its smart reference pressure logic, analyzing and adapting alert parameters based on the tire performance data recorded in the last five minutes. This translates to the market’s tightest warnings, delivering alerts up to three times faster.
