Correct and industry wide standard is for the inner dual stems to point outward and the outer duals to point inward. This is to facilitate tire changes and repairs since the fronts and rears use the same wheels, just turned as needed.
But, if you have aluminum wheels only the wheels showing are alum. the inner rears are steel in 99+% of the cases.

I don't have the name with me on the road, but you can get a valve stem for the outside dual so that it faces out instead of in. Very easy to use the tire monitors.

I have the TST system as well. I recently upgraded to the 507 unit with the replacable batteries, but I stuck with the cap type monitor instead of the flow through style, I rarely need to add air. I use the extender, but it is not always necessary. With the extender I was able to read the toad pressures when it was being driven a ways behind the coach! I just wired it to simply plug into the cigarette lighter on the Honda. No permanent mounting.

The system is not cheap, but well worth it for the convenience and peace of mind. Very accurate. The unit reads the pressure to the pound as my digital tire pressure guage.

Yep, I use the TPMS from TST as well. Set the alarm parameters and let them do the work for you.
