Where is a good place to start when setting TST temp and pressure alarm points?

Love my TST system but a question please.

Why does the length of display time vary between wheel positions? At times the display will stay at one wheel postion for 20-30 seconds or more and then jump to the next postion for only one or two seconds before moving on.....?

Dan,

Since the senors must be removed to make any air adjustments, after setting duals within 1psi of each other, what is considered an acceptable range between cold sensor readings before removing them to verify and or make any adjustments.

Typically, we suggest setting your low PSI alert at 10% below what you normally, and 15% above what you normally run in your tires.

Your temperature arrives preset to alarm at 157 degrees Fahrenheit.

Typically, we suggest leaving it at that temperature as this level is comfortably above a normal operating range, and safely below a danger threshold.

I hope this helps and thank you for your inquiry!

You probably have a sensor that is transmitting more frequently than the others and the monitor is delayed as it must report this rapid infusion of data...

Thank you for your kind words and we are happy you are pleased with your system.

Thank You!

What is the difference between your old system and the new one with replacable batteries?

Welcomt to the forum Dan. I too have had a few very pleasant conversations with your staff. I have used my TST system since Mid May and have had 1500 worry free miles so far.

However I too have a sensor that sticks on one tire for a long time until going on to the next one. Does it need to be replaced?

Thanks Cliff

Dan;

I also have a question. I recently purchased your system and I plan on seeing you at Louisville in July. How long do you feel the o-ring seals will last in the sensors if they have to be removed and replaced while adding air? Are replacement o-rings available and would it be advisable to stock some? I have had problems getting the right valve stems on my Saturn. I have had to remove and reinstall them several times.

Welcome TST !

Dan,

Welcome to iRV2's Vendor Spotlight! We very much appreciate the time that you can afford our members in answering questions about TPMS and we look forward to your continuing support.

Consider if you will of have the time to do so a Chat Session in our Technical Chat Room at some point in the future. We will help you set that up and I'm sure the members will welcome the opportunity.

Driver,

Is there a special "Technical Chat Room" or is it just a part of the regular Chat Room? It doesnt seem that anyone is using the room on a regular basis.

I would be nice if we had scheduled Tech Chats.

We are developing that as well as all our other resources here on iRV2 and we hope to be able to bring that feature to you in the very near future.

Hi Dan,

As one of the longest users of your system I am really pleased with it and it has saved my tires a few times. Most importantly it caught a leak on my front toad tire that would only lose air in a certain position while sitting still. Discount Tire couldn't find the leak until they dismounted the tire and put a spreader on it and found the tire was splitting apart from the inside, it was just a matter of time before it could have had total failure either behind the MH or while driving it down the road. Thanks TST for saving me a repair bill or worst yet my behind.
It's good to see you on this Forum fielding questions. So I have one, can the battery be replaced in the older monitor?

SgtJoe
