So about 3 average ruby throated humming birds. Probably not going to be a weight issue from a balancing perspective.

So far the only glitch I have had with TST 507 is the rear passenger tire on the toad lost signal yesterday. Pulled over - it was aired up and fine. Turned the system off and a back on and it found it. I do have the repeater and the other toad tires continued to send the signal.

Lost signal should give different warning than low air.

Low battery or sometimes some other RF interference can cause loss of signal. I had a "wireless" back-up camera that caused a lot of interference with one of my TPM systems.

You're right.. I know the loss of air signal... this was just a loss of signal and it was much different. I can't say for sure - but think it is a different beep even than the low air threshold setting.

I would not be without the TST or some other system - coach - repeater and toad. Flow through on coach and locking no flow on toad.

Just installed the EEZRV tpms and really like it except for the flow through sensors. They don't flow. Should have ordered the regular ones

I think it is the same sensor design that TST uses. Don't give up yet. You need a small 150PSI compressor. I carry a small pancake type. My original 125PSI compressor that I carried wouldn't work. The 150PSI works great. And make certain that the sensors are fully seated without over tightening.

If you happen to notice one of your tires has a slow leak spray the sensor with a soap solution. I had a sensor that was leaking where the charge stem went into the sensor. I replaced the sensor.

I have a 150 psi compressor. I also tried to let air out of a tire with no success. The sensors read but don't allow much air to pass

Sorry Sir! I do not know much about EEZ. That is a knock off to the TST System. Have a Great Weekend!

I generally remove the sensors after each trip anyway.
I wonder how many folks have accurate air gauges, it's hard to find a place without sending them off to check calibration of our gauges.
You are missing a important safety tool that could save you a lot of green. Over the last 12 yrs with pressure pro and TST they have saved us two times that we would have lost a tire on the rear and it's no telling how much damage they could have caused.
I wonder how many folks have inaccurate/useless TPM systems.

Mel even if they are not completely accurate they can give you a warning as a tire looses pressure and save you from all the problems of the tire taking out the air bags, wire looms and the side of the coach, I know how accurate my sensors are and would not want to travel without them they are a cheap safety measure.

Mike has TST done anything about increasing the volume on the L P alarm, a lot of us old folks have hearing loss, that is my only complaint with TST.

I have to wonder how many more TPMS treads will start before there is an automatic download of all the previous ones that keep repeating what was said before. Someone just had to say it
