TST Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Considering a TST 507 tire monitoring system for my rig. I have a couple of questions:
1) Any negative feedback on the TST system?
2) How difficult is it to set up?
3) Considering the non flow through system. Is this OK, or should I get the flow through system?
4) Is the repeater necessary to get the signal from the trailer to the tow vehicle?
5) Any problem with loss or theft of the sensors?

Thanks in advance for any input or experience you can share.

1. Now that I have the repeater, no issues
2. Very easy to set up, instructions are pretty clear.
3. I have the non flow thru sender, they work fine for me.
4. I needed the repeater, but you may not. No way to know before hand.
5. Still have all mine.

Installed today

Just installed mine this afternoon. Read the instructions a couple of time, watch a couple videos on YouTube (not very helpful) and then started the process to configure the system. After several attempts, gave TST a call and they assisted me with the setup. They are very helpful, explained in detail the process, even walked through the setup. Their customer service, IMHO, is outstanding. Tomorrow will be our first trip and I'll follow up with the results of it performance.

I'm 1,300 miles into a Colorado trip and I'm very happy with the performance of my TST 507 flow through sensors. I like the convenience of being able to double check the tire pressures with a hand held digital gauge without having to remove the sensors.
I have a 25 ft. AS and didn't need a repeater.

What's interesting is we're camped at 8,000 ft. Elevation and as the night temperatures start dropping, the tire pressure starts dropping. I have the low pressure alarm set at a close 5 psi, and one by one, each tire will go into alarm (sometimes after I've gone to bed).

I hope you will also be happy with your TPM system.
Mine has given me a peace of mine while traveling through the beautiful mountain passes.

Cheers

I have the TST 507 and need a repeater with my 30' trailer. Otherwise it seems to work good. Repeater just showed up, will install this weekend.

I would go with the flow thru sensors, we just did 5700 miles and it was a pleasure to manually check and adjust tire pressure periodically.

Ditto to all the above. Non Flow Thru sensors but the more robust SCE which have a brass body. No repeater with my Sierra 2500 and 30ft Classic. Very quick to remove a sensor for adding air or checking pressure.

I found mine to be a challenge to set up initially. Bought mine through an Airstream guy and he was great to walk me through it and other follow up questions I had. Price was very competitive.

We haul a 30' FC with a Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab and no repeater has been necessary.

The security feature integrated into the sensors has worked fine for me. No issues with theft, etc.

I use them on my 30' and my SUV. I need the repeater because of metalized insulation and window tint on the car. They work fine. I converted trailer tire stems to all metal to overcome valve stem flexing. I remove them during long periods of storage to conserve batteries, but no one has ever tampered with them. Just don't go through the car wash tire scrubber without removing them.

1) Any negative feedback on the TST system?
We have that exact system and love it. Manual tire pressure readings usually run 3-4 psi higher than the TST readings, but we use the monitors to watch for slow or rapid loss of pressure, not an exact reading.

2) How difficult is it to set up?
It was a little bit of a challenge. Just read the enclosed info and take your time. It was doable with time and patience. We did not need to call for help.

3) Considering the non flow through system. Is this OK, or should I get the flow through system?
We are glad we chose the flow through system. They are much easier to monitor pressures and add air than sensors that would have to be removed.

4) Is the repeater necessary to get the signal from the trailer to the tow vehicle? We have a 25' and did not need a repeater. it works consistently well for us.

5) Any problem with loss or theft of the sensors? We have not experienced any problem with loss or theft to date, but have only been using them eight months. We do cover our tires while in storage.

We still visually check the tires at every stop, but this gave us peace of mind that if something happened we might know about it before extensive damage was done to the coach. We did have trouble with one of the tires not holding air once the sensor was on (no matter how tight we turned it), but customer service was available and helpful. The issue was resolved with their first suggestion to use a dremel to remove just a very small amount of the end of sensor fitting. This allowed it to fit snugly and put an end to the air loss. They were willing to send a new sensor to where we were staying at the time, but that was not needed. Good luck with your decision. I don't think you can go wrong with this system.
