EK2 TPMS wireless tire pressure monitoring systems are based on the latest wireless sensor technology. Newly designed, flow through sensor technology (EK215G) allows users to add or remove air from tires without removing sensors.
We have our internal sensors in Beta testing currently, and we expect to begin marketing them in March.

Thank you for your inquiry!

Product Documentation and Description

I've read the numerous posts with interest and have spent time browsing the TST website. What seems to be missing are specifications, descriptions, and pictures of how the unit works and is programmed. For example, there is no image of the 507 screen "turned on." Nor can I find a description of how the unit "alarms." It would be great to have such info, either on the web site per se or as downloadable PDF support and description files, which are ubiquitous on the internet. It looks like TSP might be a better option than PressurePro, but PressurePro, and others, much more clearly describe and illustrate their product than TST.

Today I stopped at TST facility,on my way south...I suggest you call Dan, he can explain. They installed my unit and an hour later the alarm sounded! No big deal, just have to adjust the parameters .... I wish I read the manual before I left so I would have known how to adjust them on the fly. Ha ha. I think this product is a good value.

We just bought the TST 507 System two weeks ago.

We have it setup for our Truck and 5th Wheel.

Easy to setup and easy to read.

Used it for the first time on our move last Friday, from Orlando FL to Tallahassee FL, it worked great.

We head to Texas is a few weeks, glad we have the TST System for piece of mind while towing.

I want to make sure I understand the question clearly.. Please correct me if I have misunderstood something.

Our sensors are accurate within 1.5+/- PSI. Most digital gauges are accurate within 2+/- PSI.

Therefore, you could have an instance where your gauge is reading high and our sensor is reading low. If this is the case, so long as your system and your gauge are reading within 3.5-4 PSI of each other, this is acceptable.

Good question and thank you!

Our website is a perpetual "work in progress" and I hope you will forgive any unintentional oversights on our part. If you will click the link below it will take you to a video regarding our 510 system. You can also hit this video by clicking on the AmericanRver link on our homepage.

http://www.americanrver.com/tst.html

A little additional research on the site will also lead you to a video interview I gave myself pertaining to the 507 system.

Our frequently asked questions also provides some additional information, and if you will email me at dcovington@tsttruck.com I will happily send you owners manuals for both of our systems.

Thank you for your post and you will notice some improvements to our site and additions to our product line soon!

After running with one of the first TST systems I finally had to replace my old system with the 507 system. Really impressed with ease of set up and the fact that I'll be able to change out the batteries when needed, something I couldn't do on my old system. Really like the new on/off button on the monitor and the mounting features it has. Looking forward to moving on down the road with this new system. The new sensor mounting tool is a great improvement over the old one with the plastic handle. It was so bulky I couldn't use it to install the old theft deterent second generation sensors through the opening on my MH front wheel covers. I had to use the original sensors that I bought through the company prior to TST becoming the distributor. Those were heavier and could be hand installed.

How mant times did you have to replace the sensors on the old system due to low batteries?

My original sensors from SAF-TTE in CO are the ones I used on the front and they lasted about four years until the batteries went down. That system was one that most folks never saw. It could be installed and removed by hand. The ones I ran on the back 4 tires on the MH and on the Toad were the third generation Sensors that needed the tool to install and remove, originally supplied from SAF-TTE in CO who folded up business and then TST stepped in and worked a deal with the Manufacturer to honor the warranty for those of us who were left high and dry by the other company. I was one of the fortunate ones that TST covered even though I had not bought the originals from them. These third generation sensors are finally seeing the end of their battery life after 4 or 5 years of being installed constantly.

The batteries on these originals and 2nd and third generation sensors could not be changed out by the user.
Before I forget, the 2nd generation Sensors supplied to me from the old Company created a lot of problems, in that the threads were not deep enough to properly seat on the valve stem, thus causing air leaks as you drove down the road. They were also with the tool as they were the first theft deterent sensors.
These new 507 sensors and monitor really look great. I haven't seen any complaints other then the one were someone stated that they had to have their valve stems cut to get the sensors off so they could return them. Not sure if those were 507s. Not seeing this or knowing the individual who had this problem I can't comment as to why this happened. Perhaps he used Loctite when he installed them.

So after being long winded I'll answer your question. Some lasted 3 yrs, others lasted 4 or 5 yrs. I originally installed the first sensors the Jan before TST became the Dist. so it could have been 4 or 5 years.
