The right rear tire consistently gives me erratic signals on my TST TMPS. Sometimes it works. Often it's a "no show." I haven't figured out any rhyme or reason to it. It's just erratic.

I had a different brand monitor on my Classic 28. I had an occasional dropout of the right rear tandem wheel, particularly in a long left turn such as in freeway exits. It always came back alive when I straightened out.

Mine is the right outer rear, but it has not shown any signs of life. I cleaned the battery contacts, no luck, so tomorrow am going to autozone and get a stem core remover and give that a try. Appreciate all the input and suggestions.

Dalwyn, if you bring the monitor to the sensor, does it work? I took all of my sensors and established a range for each. The monitor will work without being plugged in. So, I set the monitor and sensors on a table, then I walked each sensor away. When the monitor stops reading, you move back slowly until it registers again. That is max "line of sight" signal for that sensor. Each sensor should read at least 40' or further with no obstruction. And you need to know the range of each to inform Mike of your results.

On our 34' there was intermittent signal loss, especially on interstate or major highways with big rigs or crowded with cages. When I added the repeater, I placed it under the left bumper of the truck and tied it to the "running lights" on the driver side. That gave better reception. I added a second repeater in the rear truck window.. that fixed the dropouts for a couple years.

I now plan on repositioning the bumper repeater inside the AS, on a switched power source... hope that keeps things working.

Our AS really are hard to transmit around and the sensors do not have high power to conserve the tiny battery...

AStreamNerds: I love your Repeater installation. Can you provide Make/Model of your REPEATER? That way, I'll know it'll work with the TST sensors..... Thanks.

TST was provider of the repeater... Mike and team assisted debug. One sensor of 6 failed and quickly replaced.

What cwf said. It is a TST repeater. I read up before I bought the TST system and I decided to buy the repeater at the same time as the rest of the system. Just took my time getting to the install. Thanks for the compliment

Just wanted to update everyone on my issue with the right rear outer tire sensor. I tried everything, replaced the battery, replaced the stem core, removed all sensors and re-programmed and called TST. After discussing the issue and all that I had done to resolve, Jim ask what battery I had used when replacing? I had bought one from Battery Plus, he said they had seen previously problems with Walmart and Battery Plus CR1632's not reaching the correct voltage. So last resort I went and got an Energizer CR1632 and immediately the sensor coded properly. So, lesson learned - make sure to use brand name batteries.

Hi Mike - thanks for update. I've had my TST TPMS now for over three years with no performance issues.
