Have txt non flow thru on 36' fifth wheel and Dodge dually. Have worked fine for a year, no repeater, no real problems. Trading for 28' flying cloud and they will go on as soon as valve stems get changed to metal. Probably need to reset new pressures as I got confused when done originally!

Good luck and safe travels.

Just finishing a 3400 mile trip to Nebraska and return with our new TST system. Both my wife and I really like this system. Continual feedback from the sensors is really helpful. Much better than the TM system we had.

Well, I broke down and purchased a system yesterday. After getting a first hand review from an Airstream buddy in our club and doing on-line research, I went with the TireTraker TT-400C. It also had excellent reviews, was less expensive, and came with a 3 year warranty.

Again, thanks for all the input to my original question.

Has anyone installed the internal TST TPMS? Does that work well? I think I would prefer that but I have 2 main questions. 1. Will it fit my 16 inch rims that came on my 25FB Eddie Bauer without any issues? 2. Is there a set with only 4 internal TPMS sensors - the only one listed for sale is $474 from TST with 6 internal sensors is too expensive. If it could be purchased for $158 less (the cost of 2 sensors) I would likely go for it.

I have the internal TST TPMS for my trailer but I still have 15" rims. I can't imagine why they wouldn't fit your 16" wheels but TST would be best to answer that question.

I honestly don't remember what I paid for it but I thought it was in the $400 range for just the 4 sensors and monitor kit.

This is our 3rd season with it - still no need to change batteries (the only downside w/internals - you have to dismount the tire to remove the sensor and send it back to them).

When I scrubbed the curbside Michelins on some road work (just a year old - crap!) I took the trailer in for replacements. I forgot I left the monitor on in my truck and when they broke the seal on the tire, the alarm went off - just as advertised.

No problems with it - very happy to have it and very happy with their level of customer service.

Good luck!

Hello, Please call me regarding the 507 Internal TST TPMS. Yes it will work with your size wheels, and yes the price for a 4 sensor kit is $319.00, you will probably want to talk about adding a repeater also. Please call me at 770-889-9102 Thanks, Mike Benson TST

Our 34' with 2500 crew cab needed the repeater for reliability. Now we rarely "lose" a sensor signal. Sensor signal loss usually occurs in metro areas where you are trapped in traffic of 18wheelers.

Best Customer Service

The TST TMPS system is great and you won't find any better customer service than that provided by Mike and his team. Just returned from a 5900 mile trip to Wyoming. Mike responded promptly to a question I had while on the trip.

I installed the TST 507 system with a 30 foot Airstream and my Ford Excursion. We have had quite a few issues trying to establish a connection with some of the tires and also keep that connection once underway. I bought a repeater and I'm trying it out, I plugged it in last night and I found that the repeater did not help in the amount of time it takes to establish a connection with the tires. I am assuming that all the repeater does is help solidify the signal, I'll try it out this weekend and see how it goes.

When parked in my shop I get a connection to all of the tires in less than five minutes, however when out on the road that's where we have these ongoing issues.

I bought a TST ssystem but it's still in the box. Waiting on our 2016 Airstream to be built and delivered this month hopefully. Questions for you guys in the know. When the system loses signal when underway does the alarm sound? I watched the video on the TST website and that beep drove my dog nuts. She rides in backseat and alarms going off all the time would not be a good thing.
