You won't frigging believe this, but I just found my valve stem tool in the most unlikely spot. I have a tomato sauce can that I keep stainless steel nuts and bolts in. I needed a SS nut for my home built Genturi and sure enough it was in the can. I would have never of thought to look there. I'll put a yet undecided one in my motor home tool box.

So in other words you put it where you would not forget it at the time? I really hate when I do that.

It has probably been discussed but can someone update me on the use of the in tire units? I have the posted truck and trailer and a second trailer I use locally. Is there less overall hassle with the in tire units or is general consensus just to get the screw on?
Thank you, Bill

I usually store it on a cow magnet on the underside of my tool box lid. There is no rime or reason for me to put it in the SS bolt can. It's an 8 oz can with a spray can top for a lid.

I wouldn't bother with sensors on the second trailer. If it is just used on surface streets, it won't do as much damage as it would on a freeway.

So is it worth getting the in the tire stem units or just the screw on sensors?

I like the screw on because I can change the batteries and if the sensor goes bad, I don't have to have the tire broken down to replace it.

How do you keep a cow under the lid of your tool box and where does one get said cow magnet? The price of beef is going up and I could use a good cow magnet!
Does it also provide milk?

I believe cow magnets only attract the cows. It won't milk them for you.

And the best part, cows rarely have tire failures, so the TPMS is quite unnecessary.

I'm going to type this real slow as I know some of you can not read real fast. A cow magnet is about 3 inches long and about one half inch square. Dairy farmers somehow insert it into cows stomachs. Maybe they coat it with peanut butter to get the cows to swallow them. The purpose is to attract any bailing wire or nails stupid cows like to swallow. In doing so, metal does not go into the cows intestines and do damage. Was that slow enough?

Which stomach? They have more than one. Let's see a picture and by the way, what are you doing with a cow magnet?
You know that Cliff is a Dingo magnet!

With our DSDP we (and others) have had problems with Pressure Pro senders on the rear axle. Seems Newmar adds extra bracing and it blocks the signals. Might have the same problem with the TST unit.
Have you tried the wired in repeater unit? Contact Dan and get it taken care of!

I used to be a Pressure Pro distributor/dealer so I do have a little knowledge of what may be the problem.

The interesting things we learn here.
To stay on topic, Dan would a cow magnet disrupt TPMS readings?
My 507's are still working great after 2 years (original batteries).

What line was Ron in when they were handing out common sense . Common sense would tell a person that the first stomach would be a logical place to catch foreign steel objects from further ingestion into the second and third stomach. Besides that how would they even get a magnet into the other stomaches?

He**, I have no real idea how all that works. I'm just guessing. My late neighbor worked at a dairy farm and gave me the magnet(s).

Don't even get a magnet near my TST sensors.
