It wouldn't make any sense to have the system tell you of a flat/blow out 5 minutes after it occurred.
Make sense or not sensors transmits every 5 minutes UNLESS you have a leak or blowout. Go to page 1 of your 507 manual and look under "Sensor Features"
"Sensors transmit pressure and temperature data every 5 minutes"

As I understand If you have a leak or blowout it transmitts data immediately. Your monitor simply displays the best value untill the sensor updates it. The monitor does not talk to the sensors, only monitors its output.

The sensors either transmitt every 5 minutes(if all is ok) or transmitt when it discovers a significant pressure or temp change so if something happens your monitor will pick up the change.

In my case when the toad leaves the park it simply displays last value since the monitor has no way of detecting it.

.....I think?????

athuddriver, Without digging through the book, is sounds right to me.

All 4 times I lost the left side outer. I will install a repeater this winter in preparation for adding a toad and 4 more sensors.
I had the exact same problem except it was the right side inner. I also was going to go the repeater route. However I swapped that sensor with one of my front sensors, and I haven't had a problem since.

Now, that's thinking along the same lines I do. athuddriver, if it works for you, tip the man 10% of what that repeater would have cost.

I didn't have my book with me but now that you reminded me...YEP...5 minutes except for sudden changes.

Still...I would think the driving the toad away would resemble a lost connection to a sensor. Next spring when I get my toad set up...I will see.

Remember, it takes 5 minutes for each one. I've seen mine show a reading for what I thought was longer than 5 minutes.

I bet you will already know about any Blow Out. way before the system can tell you.

What will hopefully happen prior to a blow out is a detectable release prior to the blow out. This would give you few valuable seconds notice prior to the main event, rather than just being caught totally unawares.
Frankly, I hope to never use the system for this purpose.

Yep, they're difinitely funny. Mine as always read the toad fine, even when it was parked in the garage a good 75' away. It was just that one inner right rear. So far everything has been working fine since I moved that one sensor.

If you just removed a sensor it would alarm as if you had a leak or blowout. But what if it just stops transmitting? It does not cause a problem with me as long as I know this. I am still satisfied with the way the system works.

5 minutes does seem like a long time.

I thought 5 minutes was a long time too, but if there is a sudden change in anything, it alarms right away. You can program the % of change in # and .

Hello All,

Let me clarify a few items for you. Regrettably, there are some older manuals in circulation which publish a five minute interval between reports from the sensors.

This is a typographical error. Under a NON AIR LOSS EVENT, the sensors will report tire PSI and tire temperature every two minutes.

In the event that 2 PSI or greater is lost in under two minutes, the system will immediately alert and allow you plenty of time to get off of the road before it is too late.

In the event of a PSI loss of 1-2 PSI per hour, you will still be alerted when your PSI hits your low alert parameter yet again, keeping you off of the side of the road and able to address your tire issue.

Thankfully, our systems have kept hundreds of fellow RV owners out of peril from hazards ranging from tread separation, nails in tires, belts within tires breaking, and even sudden failures.

Our systems are safely designed, operational, and they do what we say they will do.

TST has just been named the official and exclusive tire pressure monitoring system of Daimler Trucks North America (Which includes Freightliner, Western Star, Sterling, and Thomasville Buses).

I know many of you are owners of Freightliner chasis, and you can appreciate the quality of design that goes into your product.

Here is a recent endorsement from Freightliners Team Run Smart:

https://www.teamrunsmart.com/article...-tire-blowouts

This is a Freightliner professional trucking site commenting about our system and the good it has done, and continues to do for the commercial user.

Our product is professional grade and it provides all the protection you will ever need.

Thank you for your comments, and we do apologize to those with manuals bearing this misprinted information.

While competitor systems do exist that provide no information until the vehicle is in motion, or longer times between sensor check in, these are not our products and bear no electronic significance in design, alert frequency, or market penetration to our own.

Thank you for your comments and travel in safety from one RVer to another!

Sincerely,

Dan Covington
President
Truck System Technologies, Inc

TY Dan!

Could you comment on the toad issue? I would think that a toad with sensors that is driven away from the monitor system would look like a loss of signal. The user would receive a loss of signal beep for each of the toad's sensors until the monitor is reset. I would also think that the monitor would NOT retain the last PSI/TEMP readings in such a case.

Conversely, once the toad got into range, the monitor would reacquire the sensor and return to normal ops.

That being said, on a few occasions I have lost signal but for reasons unknown they did not reacquire there own. I had to reset the monitor and without fail, signal was re-established.
