TST 507 Internal TPM system

Hi all.... Has anyone have experiences to share with the new TST 507 Internal TPM system from TST? I have 6 Michelin LTX M/S on our 2012 Winnebago Aspect that are on recall (LT 225/75 R16... check if your date code qualifies!) and would consider installing when I get the tires changed over this fall. Thanks!

I just installed the 510 system on my 2007 Winnnie Voyage & 1994 Saturn SW2 toad. The outer duals on the Ford F53 chassis have Alcoa wheels and the valve stems point inward through a 2 inch??? hole in the wheel. It's difficult to even remove the valve cap, without dropping it, yet alone try to mount a 1 inch sensor. I bought 2 180 degree extensions from CW where I purchased the monitor. This brought the valve stem back out from the hole, facing outward for easy access. The extensions touched the wheel and I was afraid of wearing through so I took vicegrips and gently squeezed the u-shape tighter and then bent the end slightly away from the other side to give room to screw the sensor on. The inner duals already had braided extensions which were easy to mount the sensors. I haven't replaced the rubber valve stems on the Saturn, as recommended, since the wheel covers limit the movement caused by centrifugal force. I haven't traveled yet with this setup so problems could occur.

510 new battery

Original batteries lasted almost three years and were never removed when not being used. Got some replacement sensors (used I think but new battery) as original batteries died and they are lasting less than a year. I have even been removing them when not being used. Anyone else having same problem?

I just installed a 507 system.

One problem I have is that the display is too bright for me at night. I don't see any way to set the brightness. I think that if I could get something similar to a sunglass lens I could set up a flip down cover to tone it down some. The only idea I have so far is to go to the local motorcycle or ski shop and look for a goggle lens that may do the trick. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I was wondering, since the antenna screws in, can the antenna be located in the rear of the tow vehicle via a cable for better reception (vs a repeater)?

I have aluminum rims with a recessed hole for the valve stem. I've read about people not being able to find metal valve stems that work. Here's a photo of mine:

I wanted to add a TMPS and generally wanted to convert to metal valve stems.

I found these:

Here's a photo showing that the sensor (TST 507 with anti-theft still attached) is well inside the sidewalls in this application:

They seem like they will work well in my case. These are Haltec N-1600 valve stems. Here's their description:

Ford “F" Series Trucks with Dual Wheels
Alcoa Aluminum 16"
Front & Rear Wheels
Chrome Finish
The metal washer/spacer od is ~1.5 cm.
The height from the rubber grommet to the top of the valve stem is 3~.3 cm.
The diameter of the end that goes inside the tire is ~1.7 cm.

I torqued to 25 INCH lbs and that seemed to hold air on the 1st try.

Hopefully this will help others who are having problems finding metal valve stems.

Just wanted to say that I purchased my TST system primarily on the basis of the reviews and comments about "Great customer service". My system has worked flawlessly for 26 months. I am 2 months out of warranty. I had a problem with a sending unit (caused solely by my carelessness) and called to order a replacement. Even though it was my own fault and I was out of warranty they took care of the problem. Now I fully understand what "customer service" is supposed to mean. Great job TST!! Thank you and I will recommend you to all!

Ordered my TST 507 and Internal Sensors Today Yea!

Just got off the phone with Mike at TST and he helped me decide on a TPMS system. Since I am replacing all 4 tires on my 40ft Open Range I ordered the 507 with 4 internal monitor stems. Will add monitors my dually later with the external flow throughs. I am TOTALLY impressed with Dan's involvement with his customers and the people he hires. I had two tires go out on me on our maiden voyage on my 2013 OR. Fortunately no damage to trailer, and hopefully this will give me the piece of mind I need. Plus it's a new toy?

You will be totally happy and satisfied with the TST System. I have ran it for perhaps the longest of most folks since I had it before Dan took it over and made it what is not only the best tire monitoring system but one of the best Customer Service companies out there. I would put there customer service equal to Fantastic Fan.

TST Systems will be appearing at the National Rally. They donated a Model 507 for our Grand Prize drawing on Thursday.

Stop by and see Mike Benson at his vendor table and make plans to attend his seminar.
