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.
X 10 on note to Mel.

My heating is better than I thought cause the beeps are loud enough for me... and I think I've heard all except too high pressure.

I think one reason some posts go on forever is that with something like TPMS that could be on Class-A, B, C or any one of multiple type trailers there is tha opportunity for the answers some are seeking to have been already posted but if you own a Class-A you probably do not check the 5th wheel forums.
This is one downside with the way Irv2 form is organized, but am not sure of the solution.

There is that... and then their is the fact that your tires are just as important as your engine. More so where your safety and life are concerned. You won't go anywhere without an engine or tires. And we all know what happens when either fails.

I have found that the 507 TSTs read within about 1 or 2 lbs of my clunky old gauge. I set pressure according to the Guage and used to have the monitor with me when pressure set. These days I just air em up and check the reading when I go inside.

That's been my experience, also, the TST sensors always seem to be on the low side of the actual pressure. Therefore, I see little risk using them in lieu of a pressure gauge. I simply put the monitor in my pocket while I air up the tires.

Speaking from the point of great service I can testify Mike and TST go above any company I've had the pleasure or displeasure of dealing with.

Have to wonder about those that complain about TPM pressure reading being off by 3 psi. How many have done a 4 corner weight measurement and confirmed the correct minimum inflation needed for the actual tire loading?

If you did a 4 corner weight a couple years ago have you at least done an individual axle weight to confirm no significant increase in the total on the axle each year?

Here is data on gauge check and my suggestion on how to check your own gauges for consistent readings.

I have never posted my experience with the TPMS I have. I have had nothing but problems with it, false low, high PSI alarms as well as false high temperature alarms. When I first bought it I exchanged several emails with the company I purchased it from complaining about my problems, including that one of the twelve sensors was dead. So many problems and false alarms I stopped using the system putting it in the box. Last week we made a trip to AZ, decided to try the TPMS again. Installed new batteries, cleared all the sensors in the remote, set the baseline and installed eight of the sensors, wasn't towing. Everything looked fine the afternoon before the trip, went to get fuel in the morning before leaving, about a four mile round trip. Just as I turn in the driveway the alarm goes off, shows the right front has high pressure 101 PSI, baseline is 85 PSI. Checked actually pressure it's fine 85.5 on gauge. I knew there was something wrong when I checked the pressure of all sensors on the remote before I left to get fuel. That same right front sensor showed the pressure was 95 PSI in the morning which was 15 deg. cooler then when I put them on the afternoon before. There was no sun on the tire to make the pressure higher. We leave on the trip, at about 100 miles the left rear goes into alarm. Says the tire is leaking pressure is 96, base line 95. Checked pressure at 101, continue on trip about 50 miles further same tire goes into alarm. Now it says tire is leaking at 101, didn't get any high temperature alarms on this trip. The tire gauge I'm using is the one that Roger Marble endorses on his blog. Bought two at the same time, they both read the same, one in motorhome other one stays home. I know the TPMS is important, but I hate mine. I have chose to not name the TPMS because I don't want to get bashed by people that have the same system.
Thanks for reading my rant I feel better already.

Hey - no bashing of an actual experience here methinks. I would have returned them as faukty and given them another chance. Probably too late for that but you never know. You didn't say - but I assume you did report it and got no satisfaction. That suggests to me it's on TST. Everything I've read on TST service and my call with questions were positive. You shouldn't hold back the name of a bad product just because others have a different experience IMHO. Heck if you had what the happy folks have, you'd be happy too. I say call the manufacture. Again JMHO...

it's not to late to return. I have an email telling me I have an open ended return, can return anytime. No it's not a TST, from what I read about TST doubt I would have the problems I have had.

Chuck then I would give them a chance to send another set and if that don't work out you might want to give TST 507s a shot.

PressurePro is the "Made in the USA" original RV/Truck TPMS system. All the rest are Asian knock-offs. Why not just buy American and stop sending our cash overseas?
