She rides in backseat and alarms going off all the time would not be a good thing.
I have used TST 507s on my 25FB for two years. I have the external non-flow-thru version. I got the repeater to begin with, and normally use it (I have it mounted above the rear window on my SUV). With the repeater I always maintain contact with the tires. When I forget to plug in the repeater, I still read all the tires, but I don't know how reliable that is.

I did once leave the receiver turned on when I left my trailer at a campground and went on a day trip. The alarm for "lost contact" sounded 90 minutes later. I consider that useless.

The "lost contact" alarm always scares the crap out of me when going down the road. The one thing I do not like.

I added a repeater which resolved most situations.

Ted, You may have missed the earlier post where I, and a couple of others, wrote that we experienced a bad monitor with the TST 507 system. Contacting the company resulted in an immediate replacement, no questions asked.

Dill TPMS comparison

Do the users of the Dill 1504 TPMS or similar have the same connectivity problems? There are a few users on this website. The size if the antenna looks larger on the dill and it comes with a remote antenna. What are the differences between the TST internal and the Dill internal?

Even after adding the repeater I still occasionally lose contact with a sender. It will beep every time it cycles thru to the lost sender. It usually will pick the sender back up after a few minutes. Annoying for sure.
MikeB, is this considered normal operation or something that can be corrected?

The repeater seems to have solved my issues. The system was reliable for a four hour drive today. I only temp installed the repeater and at one point I lost a tire. My wife looked back and saw the repeater had lost power due to my makeshift temp install. We repowered it, the system found the lost tire and was solid for the east of the ride.

By "airstream guy" do you mean dealer or just some guy who owns an AS? My dealer's service manager did not recommend his stock. I forgot to ask what brand they sell after market. Does anybody know?

Without the repeater I was getting an interruption in the sending of the TST unit I have attached how I installed the repeater.

This may have been mentioned earlier but if the TST receiver is put to close to other electronic devices, in my case a Voyager backup camera monitor, it may have problems connecting. I put it on the dash, close to the driver side corner of the front window and don't have any issues with reception. GMC Sierra Duramax and 30ft Classic.

I have the repeater mounted in the back window of the truck but other than testing it haven't used it since moving the TST away from the Voyager. Same thing might happen with a GPS unit or similar.

As previously posted I was having trouble maintaining reception even after paying for and adding the repeater. Mike suggested I move the receiver to a different location, did that, no help. Next I moved the repeater from one side of the battery box to the other. I now have as far as I can tell perfect uninterrupted reception. Piece of mind restored.😎
