I have 3 inch valve stems on the two outer rear tires and they are turned in and slightly down toward the slots in the rim. When I try to install the transmitters on these two tires the transmitters hit the rim inside the slots and prevent me from screwing onto the valve stem straight(see attached photo of valve step position). Have any of you had this problem and is their a way to solve it other than installing new stems and facing them out away from the rim toward the outside of the tire? Any help or thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Hello Sir and Thank you for joining the ranks of our customerbase!

You have a couple of options to solve this problem...

A) You could apply a couple of drops of Gorilla Glue to the base of your sensors that install on these tires. This will cause the sensor shell to rigidly affix to the sensor base. This will allow you to install those sensors with your fingers.. -OR-

B) They make 90 degree valve extenders that would redirect your valve and allow for an easy installation. (This solution may require the use of a valve extender as well). We have a distributor that sells both our systems and valve extenders etc. They are "Always Shiny Wheels and RV". You can check out their site at: always shiny wheels and rv — Valve Stems and Valve Stem Extensions
You can reach them via telephone at (714) 749-7560. You will find them very knowledgeable and helpful.

Thank you for your post!

Call Dan Covington but I don't think they are.

As a TST user and dealer, I can answer your question. Unfortunately they are not interchangeable. They really are 2 different systems. Diana

Just a thought. TST claims to match all advertised prices but when I called they would not match the price by PLUGITRIGHT. Quite a price difference. Why?

Plugitright advertised price on their website for the six sensor 510 is $359. I paid $299 from tst last year. What prices are you getting?

They are advertising the 507 system with 10 sensors for $499. TST wants $659 for the same system.

I have a 12 sensor TST system. Six on the coach, four on the toad, one on the toad spare and one as a backup. I had a problem with a couple of sensors, but you took care of the issue and I have used the system for about 4,000 miles with no issues. I love to start up the system and check the pressure without worrying about the air pressure in the tires. I have had two small leaks which could had consequences that may have paid for the system.

I think my question is: if you have a vendor who is offering you a great price, why not just get it there?? Diana

Teflon Tape

New member, currently researching TPMS, the 507 looks good so far, pricing at both plugitright and alwaysshinywheelsandrv appears comparable and better than tst website, but I haven't called to verify the special, which I'll do when I'm ready to order.

Re teflon tape, using yellow teflon tape is necessary whenever you have a valve of any type downstream. Yellow teflon tape is typically used for natural gas fitting.

It isn't a different material, what makes it special versus white is that it's a fair bit thicker, and specifically designed to not shred and get caught in downstream valves. (I was curious one time, so looked up and called the manufacturer, as their spec sheets showed both products as containing 100% teflon).

So if you use teflon tape, get the yellow tape from the gasfitting section, not the white from the water plumbing section.

I haven't installed so don't yet know if I'll use, but if I do it'll definitely be yellow, and I wouldn't expect any shredding issues to cause problems with the valves.

Multiple pressures on TST 507?

A couple of Q's before I pull the trigger on the 507.

Can I have different default pressures on each axle for the 507?

My MH has 3 different pressure settings for the 3 axles (front, dual drive, single tag) and then yet a 4th pressure for the two axles on my trailer.

What about variance from default pressure (for low or high), is it one percentage for all axles, or can that also vary by axle?

In practice, what do people do when removing or adding back their toad or trailer, just let the monitor show unconnected, or do they remove those axles from display (and if so how cumbersome is this)?
