I see no reason not to leave them on overnight which is what I do. The sensor transmitter batteries are pressure activated so they are on even if the panel is off.

I just installed the TST 507 Repeater but I wasn't able to find a manual for it anywhere. The packaging had no instructions and I wasn't able to find a manual or any instructions on the TST website. I've spent 20 minutes searching the web for instructions on this device to no avail so I'm posting here for help.

My repeater has a button on it. Does anybody know what that button does? How do I know if the repeater is working? I realize it's a simple device but when I see a button, I'd like to know what it does.

Good morning, I'm sure Mike Benson will fill in the blanks or a quick call will answer your question but I'll offer my experience of installing the repeater for my 44' coach and toad. I went to the rear closet area and spliced power from the DC overhead light. Mounted and the "button" is a illuminated light that intermittingly "blinks" as receiving and transmitting signal to the monitor. It's been that way for three years w/o issues. Now that doesn't mean your repeater may be updated and different but that's how mine works. Hope this helps.

It turns out that although my "button" depresses and clicks like a button, it's actually just a light.

TST not only took over this great TPMS but those of us who had problems were made whole by TST. They sent us replacement systems at no cost. I have never heard of this type of Customer Service anywhere.
Great Company and fantastic product.
I too had ordered the system from the Colorado company which went out of business before I received anything. I figured I was just out of luck, and then Dan Covington called me and told me he was going to make it all right again. They sent me the system I had already paid for at his expense. Since then I have purchased several replacement sensors and now the 507 Flow Through System. I am now waiting for the color system that is said to be coming.

Great company and service!!

I am sure the OP has come to conclusion that TST is a good company and great service. I will join the choir about Dan the president. I purchased the 510 few years ago and was having problems with programing the systems. I sent them an e-mail asking about the problem I was having. On the next Saturday morning while returning to the lot to park my RV I got a phone call from Dan he walked me through the problem that I was having. How many president of the company will take the time on a weekend to call a customer and spend enough time to solve the customerís problem.
This is why I have purchase the 507 and 507 flow through system. I will always support a company that I feel they will take care of me if I have problems.

If you buy any other system besides TST, I have to ask why? If enough people told me that the quality and service were the best, over and over again, I think that should be convincing enough. All I can say is you won't regret it. Give Debbie at TST a call at 770-889-9102. These are the friendliest most helpful people you'll ever deal with.

I am look for additional 507 sensors and replacement batteries & O-rings for my existing units. No reply so far to message using 'contacts' from their website.

Coming into the Holidays, there may be a short delay in their response however O-Rings and screws are typically supplied by TST for little to no cost. You can get the batteries at Walmart or other convenient store such at "The Shack."

TST attended the recent FMCA Convention where their display space (TechnoRV) was mobbed by RV'ers. I saw Dan speaking to several folks and I had to wait my turn. Later during the rally, I saw him making a house calls out into the parking areas to check on different things.

TST exceeds my expectations once again. Just ordered sensors for the toad. Called Debbie at TST and she had them paired up with my system in 5 mins. I don't know what you pay her Dan, but make sure you keep her! Thank you TST for being a provider I can count on. 👍🏼

This has been a very long thread and I really have not read through it in entirety. So forgive me if this has been ask before. I tow a Chevy HHR that has it's own tire monitor system. My question is, if I were to install this system on our coach, can it read the tire monitor on the HHR when we are towing? Thanks. Chuck

It will read the tire pressure on the HHR valve stems. Not the HHR meter.
