Yes it is. When I was ready to order I didn't see the flow through sensors so I just called them and they took the order by phone. Other than one issue with a sensor they are replacing it works great!

I purchased the 507 this spring with 6 flow through for the MH and 4 regular for the toad/boat trailer. Have had no issues and am pleased with the product.

I got the 507 flow through sensors recently. It sure is easy to check the air pressure now on my truck and trailer.

However, the sensors restrict the flow (when adding air) compared to not having them installed. The flow resistance is highly variable, ranging from 5 PSI "back pressure" when adding air to an extreme of 100+ PSI of "back pressure".

Is there a way to adjust the sensors to modify the resistance to air flow when filling tires with air?

Details on what I call the "back pressure": I have a 12V pump that has an air pressure gauge on it. When I add air to a 65 psi tire without the flow through sensor, the pressure gauge on my pump (while pumping) reads 66 or 67 psi. With the flow through sensor in place, the gauge reads (when adding air to a tire at 65 psi) from 70psi to 150 psi.

When I pump air through the flow through sensosr with my 12V pump - with the sensors not attached to the tire - my pump gauge reads 40, 50, 55 and 110 PSI on 4 different sensors.

Why not just remove them to put air in?

Problem solved.

Ed, Quite simply, your problem is the 12 volt pump and how many CFM it can deliver. I would suggest a 120V air compressor and I can "Guarantee" you will no longer have that problem. I have never met a 12 volt compressor that I have liked.

I carry a Sears tankless compressor and it inflates the tires through the 507 in line sensor like it's not even there.

If you have your monitor at your side, you can watch the pressure go up/down, and know your system is working.

I just bought my TST system, should arrive tomorrow.

I will use it on the way to the iRV2 rally next week and expect that it will truly provide me with some piece of mind. I already had one tire lose air due to a leaky steam. It was just lucky I found it before I had any issues, but I can imagine having a tire go empty when traveling for hundreds of miles and end up with a real issue when everything comes apart….

Richard, That defeats the benefits of the technology.

Technology is supposed to make things easier to deal with. In the case with flow-through sensors it may not be the case.

I chose the CAP sensors since I use the Borg Dually Valve Stems all the way around the coach. It is as easy to remove the CAP sensor to increase or decrease the air in the tire as it is to remove the valve stem cap.

I guess for those people with hard to reach valve stems, the flow-through probably makes more sense but it didn't make any sense for me.

Richard, In the case of the Model 507 FTVS, the only thing that needs to be removed to adjust the air pressure is a plastic valve cap. I am not a big fan of removing sensors to add pressure since most all of those have O rigs and I just don't like to disturb them if I don't have to. I chose to use metal valve stem extenders however they may not be necessary in all installations.

I have to admit I purchased the TST 507's today based solely on this discussion forum. It's so refreshing to see so many positive comments of the TST system and the support from TST in such a public forum. :-)
