And I send a big thanks to Abby Crump.

I sent an e-mail detailing what my system was doing, droping sensor signals. Abby knew what my problem was, an old model repeater that did not work well with the 507 system. As soon as she received my old repeater she mailed one that is working well.

Thanks Abby for such great service.

Safe Travels.

JD

If you fill your tires to 85 and in a few days they go to 82 cold but still go over the 85 when heated up, do I need to add air?

We are here to help and we take these matters extremely seriously.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to get your system working correctly.

I have your 510 system and I exchanged the pass-thru sensors for the regular ones because they would not fit through the holes on the wheels. Then I got smart and bought valve extenders which could use the pass through. Live and learn as a newbie I guess. My question is; if I air up my tires to 85 lbs. as recommended, and they go to 81 cold in a few days but still go over the 85 when hot, do I need to add air?

Thanks much, Stormy 1

For me, I try to keep my tires at 85 PSI. That is the pressure recommended by my coach manufacturer. But the load tables, put out by my tire manufacturer, says I can safely go down to 80 PSI with the weight being carried on each corner of my RV. Knowing this I don't worry till my pressure is below 80 PSI.

Thanks for the response. Another thing I did not consider was the difference in altitude which I guess can make a few pound difference too. We are in Fairbanks up from Seattle two weeks into five weeks up and back.
Thanks again...

Dan, I was wondering if you had a better way to secure the valve extensions. One of my supports has broken due to the increased vibration because of the weight of the 510 sensor and filling Tee. I was looking at the Alcoa site, I don't have Alcoa rims, and was thinking that the supports they sell may work, despite that I only have Stainless liners.
Your thoughts please.

Thank you,
Stewart

Hello Stormy,

Your tire PSI is sensitive to variances in temperature. You can expect to see a change in your PSI at a rate of 2 PSI per 10 degrees Fahrenheit. As the temperature climbs (while stationary), for every 10 degrees of increase, your PSI will also increase at a rate of 2 PSI.

The same holds true for drops in temperature as well.

For me, if you are parked, and you are seeing modest fluctuations in temperature and PSI, I would let it be. If you are continuing to see your PSI go down, I would suggest a soapy water test. Occasionally, the nuts will loosen on metal valve stems allowing a very gradual air loss.

Your system will alarm under gradual conditions when the PSI hits your low threshold.

I hope this is helpful and thank you for being one of our customers.

Travel in Safety!

Hi- our towed vehicle has "in tire" pressure monitors - will the external monitors conflict with them? Thank you for your response

The PP system set up that way would not be transferable to the towed as it's tied to the SilverLeaf.
I used to be a PP dealer/distributor and didn't bother the buy the somewhat expensive interface.
Personally I think the independent monitor panel is better overall unless your towed has it's own TPMS.

My CR-V also has factory sensors and I have had no problem with the TST sensors conflicting with them.

I have a Saturn Vue with GM sensors and there has not been any conflict with them and the TST sensors.

08 MKX and the sensors do not interfere with each other.
