I like the idea of those balance plates mentioned above, but after swallowing about $7K in the last year on repairs/service/etc, I can't pop for another $1000 in balancers right now. It's on the list for future though.

Dyna Beads do not need special stems as they are too big to clog the valve stem, while the powdery type (Equal) has an identifying cap to alert the tire guy when he removes the valve stem the powder will shoot out. A lot of the time when you check tire pressures the valve stem will clog and when you come back in a few hours you've got a low or flat tire. You've got to put air back in after checking the pressures to clean the valve stem out.

What is the cost of the TST system with 12 sensors, and does it require a signal booster Also, how long do the batteries last?

Counteract balancing beads are great also. It is what most of the big truckers use. I have them in my RV with the TST 507 TPMS

Question for TST. I have the 510 system for six tires. Recently, both inside dual tires suddenly report low pressure one first and the other shortly after. The sensors each report 88 PSI. When I stop to Check the tires with a gauge, they read the expected 114 PSI For. A 100 degree day and tire temperature. After reinstalling the sensors, everything reads as expected but, after a few miles, each inside dual sensors again reports 88 PSI in the same order. It is like "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." 100 miles after shutting the 510 monitor down, the right front tire blew a few miles out of Las Vegas. A very fast decompression so, pretty sure the TPMS wouldn't have helped. However, it would be better if it worked right.

I have had the TST system for over 2 years.. in April I had the first real 'fallout' of a sensor due to a weak battery.

Replaced all batteries... but a different one 'acted up'... failed to reliably transmit.. Following good diagnostics, it was determined the problem was with the SENSOR itself.

I phoned for 'support' and within a few days, received my REPLACEMENT sensor AND new 'seals' for all of the sensors...

Excellent service and support!!!! THANK YOU! (with 3 axles, 6 tires on the ground and 34' of aluminum to contend with, the system still performs flawlessly!

Thanks for the quick offer of assistance Mike! We are traveling now with our 11 year old grandson. When we get settled a little more, I will contact you.

I have actually begun to rethink the TPMS on our rig. I had opted for the external sensors but they have taken a beating due to the blow out and due to our flexible valve stem extenders. The sensors seem too heavy for those. I am considering going to the internal sensors. Only have four working sensors left now. I also have a hard time seeing the display on the monitor. The LCD does not show up for me when it is in a shadow. The driver compartment of out class A is often in a shadow. The LCD only shows up for me when the sun or other bright light is shining directly on it. The back light doesn't seem to do the trick for me. This is due to my particular aging eyeballs. I also have a hard time reading the speedometer in the daytime. I use the speed marker from our GPS to keep on the straight and slow path.
