Thanks BABRede. Just ordered a 10 system 507 with replaceable batteries from Diana. You're right, she is great. She was at an RV rally in FL and stepped out of the tent to take my order and answer some questions. Thanks again

All TPMS systems are capable of failure and causing a loss of pressure. You are
adding another potential problem. Check you pressure before each trip, visually
check your tires at each stop. Consider an infrared hand help thermometer and
take your tire temps at each stop. A low tire will run hotter.

My TST system reads both tire pressure and temperature. I also use an infared thermometer to read each hub and tire at stops as a double check. It's like wearing a belt and suspenders on your pants.

I tried to instal the TST (Trck System Technologies System Mod 507 on my 2011 Monarch and wasn't able to put sensors on the front tires. The sensors wouldn't fit through the space in the "hub cap" (don't know what else to call it). What did other people do? Won't be a problem on rear tires because of extendors Monaco already has on the rear dual tires.
Thanks for help.

I'd also like to add that I had our coach weighed and now I know EXACTLY how much pressure to run in each tire. I had ours weighed at Escapees in Livingston, TX. They weigh each corner, not just the axle. I also now know that I've gotta go on a diet. http://www.irv2.com/forums/images/smilies/angel.gif

Hi Steve, I'm not that familiar with the Monarch but feel the only thing you need to do is get a set of extensions for the front wheels. Any good tire store/shop should be able to help you out with what type of extension would work best with your wheels.
You could also contact whichever dealer you purchased your system from to see if they can offer any help. Hope this helps, Diana

Steve, I think I have the same issue. I can get the sensors on the front but cannot use the included "wrench" that TST supplies. I made my own tool, if that is your problem let me know and I'll post it.

I received the TireTraker in the mail yesterday. Have some reservations as to whether or not the wheel covers will interfere with the sensors but, I'll find out today. One note, the manual makes a point of saying "the Monitor/Receiver comes pre-charged...", mine was deader than a door nail. Not a big deal it's in the truck charging now, just hope it isn't a sign of things to come.

Buford,
I have received (but not installed) the TST system and can see that I am going to have the same problem. Would like information on the tool that you made.
Thanks
Terry

Buford, That seems to be the problem. I took off the outer "security thing" and it screwed on ok. Yes, please post the tool.

I removed the small phillips screw that holds the plastic handle on the TST tool. I had a 3/16" rod laying around so I bent it into a tee handle and silver soldered it to the remnant of the TST tool. Quick and dirty but it works for me. You can get the materials at Lowe's or Home Depot.

UPDATE- Installed the TireTraker today. Other than the problem taking the wheel covers off (an exercise that I later figured out wasn't necessary) I adjusted all tires to the desired pressures and installed the sensors as per the instructions. They recommend installing all 6 sensors and then setting the baseline pressures. As soon as the sensor installation step was completed, all sensors went into alert as they should have, (the factory baselines are 72.5 psi). After the baseline setting step was completed it took about 15 minutes for the system to recognize the new baselines and now works exactly as advertised. Total installation time, about 30 minutes including the 15 waiting for the baseline recognition step.

Very happy with the product and the quick shipping time.
