I’ve used several TPMS systems and the best so far is TST (Truck System Technologies). The one problem is the minuscule screws that hold the cover over the battery can be extremely hard to remove. You can send them back and they say they will get them off, and they don’t seem to charge for that, but they will offer to put in a new battery and O-ring for about ten bucks a sensor. The system tells tire temperature and pressure.

I have the TST with color monitor and cap sensors. Model TST-507-RV-4-C. Purchased from etrailer. I also changed to metal valve stems. Very happy with product and the worry about the tires it eliminated.

I used the dill tpms for 5 years before the sensors went south. The dill work well and lasted but I didnít like all the wires. I now have Blu tpms I opted for the internal sensors itís a Bluetooth system. I use an old iPhone 5 with no cellular service as my monitor.

I have the tst 507.....the screw on cap, NOT the flow through.

One word of caution though, there is a tiny o-ring in that screw on cap, and if that comes out when you screw the cap off what happens you ask?

Well, when you screw that cap back on without that o-ring in there, your tire will slowly go flat....just sayin'.

+1 for the TST 507. I removed the "anti theft" covers to reduce weight on the valve stems. Our trailer has "hybrid" stems (part aluminum, part rubber). Have not had any issues with the sensor hitting the rim. I did purchase extra "O" rings for peace of mind.

I recall that TST enclosed a bunch of O-rings in the box.

My requirements were a system that didn't require the use of a screen doing double duty, and I didn't want anything mounted on the windshield. I also hated the monochrome screen from TST because of the (to me) ugly graphic obviously designed to represent a semi-tractor and trailer.
I think the manufacturers should include an overlay of a semi, or truck, or RV or gooseneck trailer...and let you pick.
I picked the TST based on their fine reputation for customer service, and with the color monitor. I installed all metal valve stems myself. (what was I thinking?)

I am totally satisfied. Maybe the best investment in peace of mind.
I have a Ram arm with the monitor at eye level.

I have also used the TST system for several years and have been very happy with them. On a previous trailer, a 38ft Mobile Suites, I got a heat warning on one of my trailer tires. Pulled over and found it was delaminating and about to throw the tread. Wire sticking out all around the outside of the tread. Pressure was holding normal so the temp warning really saved our bacon. The TST paid for themselves right then and there.

A vote for Dill internal system here.

Upside internal tire temp monitoring. Downside requires removing tire to install transmitter. Iím on my 2nd system. Sold first with 15ís when I got 16ís.

Iím sold on them.

TST 507 works great! I have over 10K miles now on my Goodyear Endurance with rubber/metal valve stems and the TST system. No issues.

I sent 3 sensors I could not open—first time I haven't been able to get a stuck screw out of anything—to TST to open them, put in new batteries and O-rings. They called me to tell me they fixed them and are giving me a special screwdriver that fits the very small screws and should work better than the miniature screwdriver set I have. I suggest removing the caps every year just to make sure you can and then clean everything to make sure the screws don't get stuck.
