Again I have not tried the system yet as I am waiting for de-winterizing and getting new tires. Lucky for us Michellin has a massive recall on my tire code so I will be taking that opportunity to install the internal system.

Now my questions... Are the internal batteries deteriorating with their 7 year life counting down as the system sits on my shelf boxed waiting to be installed? It will be almost 2 years this spring since the UPS man delivered them. Is there a way to check with the serial number or a code to determine the date of battery manufacture? Perhaps I should request a "fresh" set of internal TPMS valves?

I would love to hear from anyone who has this internal system installed.
Hello All,

The internal sensors are equipped with a 7 year battery, and like our external sensors, they are pressure activated.

As with any inactive battery sitting on a shelf, some life will be compromised through sitting, however, the batteries are not actively engaged, and therefore, not consuming power in the box.

At a maximum, you may have exhausted 3-4 months of battery life through allowing your system to remain in the box for 2 years.

You will likely be replacing your tires before we need to address battery depletion.

Thank you for your inquiry!

Mike I see from your post that you are able to solve most problems with the TST system. I hope that you can give me some suggestions on the problem with my 507 flow thru system. I completed a 6,000 mile trip, I changed out the batteries in all the sensors to make sure if I had a problem with the sensors it wouldn’t be the batteries. The first 900 miles the system worked great, then one sensor or the other would drop off line. I had the repeater with me so I installed that to see if it would make a difference. There was no change I still had the problem with one sensor or the other dropping off line. The two inside dually sensors very seldom will come on line. Any suggestions on correcting this problem would be appreciated.

Sensors Dropping off line

It would seem that something else might have changed to cause problems "all of a sudden." I remember reading somewhere that wireless indoor/outdoor thermometers and/or "atomic clocks" with a remote sensor can cause such problems, depending upon the brand of thermometer. Some operate on frequencies that disrupt the signal from the tire sensors. Might you have added something new to the coach?

TST Is a great company

I got to say I may be having a couple of issues with the new system but Mike is great to deal with and the company as a hole is really concerned and want to make it right. I highly recommend them.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a 507 flow thru system, but have a couple of questions I couldn't find answers to in a search here.

How long are the flow thru sensors. I find weight, but not length.

My concern is on the front tire with the wheel covers. The stem ends right at the hole to the cover and I wonder if the sensor is going to stick out so far it might hit something in a campsite. Maybe not a worry, but if it sticks out a couple inches, that seems like a lot.

Opinions?

Thanks,
Greg

Greg, first welcome to the forum. The 507 will extend about 1 1/2" on the steer wheels. If you have aluminum rims ie, Accuride or similar. I really don't see that as an issue. At least for the year that we had the 507's. If your concern is justified simply put the 507 regular non flo thru as I use them on the toad. It's just simple to remove and air because you have to remove the valve cap on the flo thru's. No problems mate you'll love the system and customer service is SUPERB!
