Good idea!

Remember to use the silicone grease on the o-ring for the cap and on the washer to the stem.

Just came back from a 360 mile trip and everything worked great. I was having sensors with infrequent connects. I replaced all the batteries, battery o-rings (w silicon), and valve stem gaskets (w silicon). It will now be a yearly maintenance item.

I've used my TST system for 2 years. It has always seemed that it took quite a while - sometimes up to 20 miles before all the sensors were working. I always get everything ready to go, get in the truck to take off then turn on the system. This trip on the first stop I got the truck running and turned on the system then finalized for leaving. Got in the truck and all the sensors were working (maybe 4-5 minutes). The rest of the times I turned on the system first before leaving and it hooked up quickly. I determined that the receiver must have a harder time trying to connect to the stems when they are spinning at 65 mph - so going forward I'm going to just turn it on first.

TST507 for me as well. 6 sending units on a 33ft Keyston passport.

Four for the trailer, one for the trailer spare, one on the truck spare. All work perfectly. REALLY worth the peace of mind.

It's my understanding that our TST 507 sending units need to be on the tire, i.e. under pressure for the battery to be engaged and the units transmitting. I take our sending units off if we're not traveling for a couple of weeks or more to save the batteries; then reinstall as part of the get ready process.
We'll see next spring if this works over the winter.

I am very happy with our TST 507 system that we have been using for the last three seasons.

Recently, I had another reason to be happy with my choice. On our last couple of outings this last season, the display would intermittently shut off unless plugged into the 12Vdc socket even with the battery indicator suggesting a full charge. I returned the display to be checked after our season was over, and TST is sending a replacement no questions asked and are even covering shipping back to Canada. TST knows how to treat a customer right.

Thumbs up Eez tpms

I use the EEZ TPMS 10 sensor kit with non flow thru sensors. I do not use the locks either don't really see the need for them. I procrastinated on getting a TPMS for a long time as I am meticulous on checking tire pressure every day before I travel. I finally decided to bite the bullet and I have not been disappointed in getting one. Within the first few days this alerted me when I had a tire failing which allowed me to slow down and get off the road before a tire failure could do any damage to my TH. The last time I had a tire blow it did over $1500 worth of damage to the outside of my TH! Over the first 6 months this has saved me a few more times. I am so glad I spent the money on this system. I have a RAM dually and a 35' TH and do not need the repeater to get a good quality signal on my rig, any longer and you may need one.

Yeap a TPMS is a must have and mine has saved me a few times. I have chosen the Tire Minder system and have used it now going on 6 years. Pick the system that meets your taste. See previous posts on this subject, plan on spending at least a day reading

Hello folks,

Appreciate all the input and insight provided on this thread regarding TPMS. Based on what was provided here, I figured I couldn't go wrong with either the TST 507 or the EezTire T515.

It was a toss up until I got a price that I couldn't pass up on the TST 507 RV 4 Sensor Anti-Theft Caps w/ replacement batteries...$219 shipped to my door.

If anyone is interested, I got it from Great RV Products: http://shop.greatrvproducts.com/prod...&categoryId=44

They have the anti-theft sensor system for $239, and the Flow Thru sensor system for $219. I called and asked if they would extend the discounted price from the Flow Thru also to the anti-theft caps, and they did! So for $219 I pulled the trigger.

Will be putting them on the new Maxxis M8008's delivered last week. Getting ready for our trip latter next month...heading south!!!

Regards,
Mike

I've used the flow through 507 system for several years now with great results.

Only issue with them has been the o-ring. Just change it out every year as a maintenance item (batteries as well).
