I use the TST 507 system and have had very good luck with them. Do a search on our site for tire pressure monitoring. There is a lot of info on the different brands.

I also now use the TST 507 system, I use to have the Smart Tire system that have sensors inside the tires.
After 8 years of use the inside tire sensor batteries became weak so I purchased the TST 507 system cheaper then the replacement sensors for my old system.

I actually purchased two TST 507 systems and will be selling one of the systems, if you are going to the National Rally in Klamath Ca. I will have it with me.
It is the TST 507 system with four flow through sensors and Repeater antenna, all items are new and never taken from the box will sell for $250.00.

We have the TST 507 flow through and have been pleased. Last year we picked up a nail and saw a low tire pressure in a tire and added air before a problem. Nice being able to monitor as you drive :thumbrt:

Mike, sounds good they are yours and I will have them with me in when I see you at the Klamath Rally.
I have a box of extra new RV items from cords to pin box locks and any thing you can think of I am bringing with me.
I do this every few years, Julie says I have a buying problem and always buy two or more of everything just if I will need it someday.

I have basically put the trailer away for the winter and removed the pass through stems!
Since I only purchased the system this year my question is do you only remove the battery from the monitor only or do you remove the batteries from both the monitor and the pass through devices as well?

I have had mine for a couple of years and never removed the batteries, I did change one this Fall. I do disconnect the monitor after setting up camp, I think that helps with battery life :?:

Mine is also the TST 507. I don't think the monitor has removable batteries. I just remove the sensors and put them in the box with the monitor.

I am looking at tire pressure monitors and was wondering if someone can tell me if the TST 507 will alarm or at least indicate if a signal is lost from one of the tires. The reason I ask is that we had a wheel come off and didn't know about it until someone pulled alongside and pointed at our trailer.
