Dan;

I also have a question. I recently purchased your system and I plan on seeing you at Louisville in July. How long do you feel the o-ring seals will last in the sensors if they have to be removed and replaced while adding air? Are replacement o-rings available and would it be advisable to stock some? I have had problems getting the right valve stems on my Saturn. I have had to remove and reinstall them several times.

Don
Petro posted this back in June, '10 and I haven't been able to find an answer in this thread. One of my sensors has a torn seal and I'm wondering if replacements are available, or if anyone has found an alternate seal that fits the bill?

Some of my o-rings tore when removing and replacing the sending units. I think that I was probably tightening them too tight.

I called TST and they sent me several to have on hand, at no charge.

I will eventually check one of the stores like ACE hardware to see if they have the o-rings in that size, just for emergency purposes. Many hardware stores have bulk hardware in metal drawers, and usually have a large selection of rubber o-rings. However, maybe not that small.

Automotive parts retailers like NAPA, etc. will have just about any size O-Ring that you might need.

Good Morning Gentlemen,

To answer your questions, yes, the O rings are easily replaceable and we typically send them free of charge to those in need.

The O rings are durable, however, excessive heat and chronic sensor removal will cause them to wear at a faster rate than normal.

If you need more O rings, we always have them on hand and you are more than welcome to email a request for them at : info@tsttruck.com

You may also phone in your request to us at (770) 889-9102.

Thank you and please let us know if we may be of further assistance!

My experince with TST

I purchased a TST TPMS two years ago. It's the older style and I bought six sensors for the motor home and four for the Toad. In this time we have put about 17k miles on the MH. I have had multiple sensors fail and TST has always been very good about replacing them. After our last 8k trip I contacted TST and they exchanged all 10 sensors. Upon receiving them and their instillation, two never worked. During our trip to the coast a third one failed. I contacted Dan via the web, received a reply, and responded on 3/4/2011. I have yet to receive a follow-up. TST has in the past been very responsive but................. It's not a question of instillation or programming.
On my old 5th wheel and truck I installed Tiresafe and only had one failure in four years.
I guess I'll have to chalk this experience to lessons learned!!

Hal-3,

I see you were a helicopter gunner. Thanks for your service. I flew Hueys in Vietnam for Lighthorse Air Cavalry.

Your experience with lack of follow-up from TST was similar to mine. I sent it back for a refund and got the Pressure Pro system.

Boy that sure hasn't been our experience but I sure am sorry to see you are having such trouble. That's a real bummer. I'd hate to put out that kind of money and not be a happy camper for sure. Diana

Reading stuff like this was the main reason I invested in the Doran Pressure Pro System. When I purchased my system, I have only had one defective sensor which they replaced after I arrived in Alaska and have had ZERO problems and complaints with the system or its performance since then and have driven almost 10,000 miles later.

I will not leave home without it running on my coach while on the road.

It 's the same as wearing seat-belts, except for the tires.

I have the TST 510 system and have been very satisfied with it. I have 12 sensors and they all work fine. I find it interesting that there are complaints that occur after the end of a warrenty period area. If it is made by man it will break or wear out. If it didn't I would not have to spend so much time working on little issues with my coach.

The did have a problem with the seals they were using for a short time on the 510 system. Just spend them back and they give you the ones with the newer seals. Great company to do business with. When I had an issue they wanted to know if I wanted them to overnight it to me. On their dime! I was home so it wasn't a problem but that kind of concern is very important to me. Best advice anyone can give is to use some system that works. I like the comment earlier from Richard...
They are seatbelts for your tires! Great line that I'll use when someone asks why I spent the money. You put on your seatbelt and hope you NEVER HAVE TO USE IT!

Dan

Thanks for the note. I have a Smart System which is now not supported for RV's, as is my understanding. Can you change batteries in the tire sensors when changing tires or do I need to look at a new system.

Very Much so!! Thank you for asking!! We just got back from Spring Break with my children on Hilton Head Island and we had a blast.

The motor home is going in for some minor warranty related repairs, however, we LOVE it and wouldn't take anything for the memories we have made as a family there in.

How are you and your travels??

Dan

Sir,

I have read your post on here, however, I NEVER received an email from you.

If I had, you would have been responded to.

In terms of your replacement sensors, they were on my personal rig and car for nearly one week to ensure that we would not have a repeat experience pertaining to your system or its performance.

I cannot assist you if I am unaware of your attempt at contacting me.

The sensors we sent you worked flawlessly, and based upon my personal experience with your sensors, compounded by the statistical performance models we sustain within our organization relative to quality and performance standards, your claims of failure are questionable.

It seems to me that there are other factors impeding system performance.

Are you using any kind of a "flow through" valve cap?

Your valve cores may be recessed to the point that your sensor is not making contact with them thus allowing full depression of the shrader valve which would certainly not allow the sensor to operate.

Are you using any kind of braided hose extenders?

Please bear in mind that we are speaking depression distances of milimeters, and as such, a simple and minor valve core adustment will likely repair the problem.

We take these matters EXTREMELY seriously, and we look upon circumstances such as these to demonstrate our true nature in business.

We are eager to get this matter resolved and I invite you to call me at the office on Monday to get to the bottom of this and troubleshoot your unit.

We are sorry about your frustration, and please know that we share in it too.

We want you to be satisfied with both, your treatment by our staff, and the performance of your system. To those ends, we remain committed.

Sincerely,

Daniel Covington
