Lasted for a few years, gave up on it, went to TST, so far much better.

Tire monitor

I also love the TST 507. Have had them 1 1/2 years and few thousand miles with no issue. I have a 28í and require no repeater.
I went with the valve stem flow through design. I did this because when u need to change a battery you donít need to remove the tire, & break the bead to access the sensors.
I just replaced the batteries on all 4 tires - easy.
I believe that Airstream puts high pressure heavy duty valve stems on their wheels. I believe these valve stems will flex if something hits them versus bending or breaking.
I have had no issue with the high pressure valve stems.
The customer service with the TSTís is outstanding.
Good luck.

TPMS Concernt

What follows is a warning from the TireMinder web site:
quote
Brass vs Aluminum Tire Sensors

TireMinder Sensors

Your vehicle's tires will have either rubber or metal valve stems. RVs, motorhomes, 5th wheels, and trailers will generally have rubber stems with brass valve cores or metal stems with steel, chrome, or nickel valve cores - all of which work with the TireMinder brass sensors. This TireMinder kit comes with 6 brass sensors. You will only need aluminum sensors (TM-2ALUM - sold separately) if you're towing a car or light truck with built-in TPMS and aluminum valve stems.


It's important to choose the correct TPMS sensor for your vehicle. Pairing the wrong metals together may lead to galvanic corrosion, which makes it impossible to remove the sensors from the valve stem. If this happens, you will need to replace the valve stem or, in some cases, the whole tire. Matching the sensors to the construction of your valve stems will ensure the sensors won't corrode.

I have metal valve stems on my tires, but I can't tell if they are steel or aluminum. If they are aluminum I guess there could be an issue with corrosion unless the TPMS is also made of aluminum. Or am I misunderstanding something /

Sometimes you can tell what the metal is, but if you can't, maybe just removing the sensors when not traveling would solve any potential problems. Corrosion does not happen in a few days or weeks.

I've been happy with my TST system. Installed about 16 months ago, and just now needing to replace the batteries. Pretty straightforward - CR1632 batteries. Small screwdriver required.

Yep, we still like the TST pass-thru sensors and repeater we mounted on our trailer early in 2014, after adding metal valve stems. We weren't happy with sensor performance on our 27FB until we added the repeater on the tongue, inside and at the bottom of the enclosure for the propane tanks. Sure, we've replaced the sensor batteries, but that was easy enough. We have their old boring old black & white monitor that's the size of an old-school beeper, but it still works great, no reason to replace it. Of course, Rocinante has been inside a building in storage since mid-November, but we hope to find everything still works fine when we pull her out again later this month and start loading her up for summer travels to Down East, in Acadia National Park.
