How long are your trailers with the TST TPMS (507) system? At what point do you need to add the repeater?

A word about Truck System Technologies...

Well, this thread has covered a lot of territory, and one of the common themes here is that TST, TPMS is a very good system. I agree, it really is. But what I didn't know was just how incredibly caring they are; the people that really ARE the company.

Back story: I bought a TST system a number of years ago, and everything worked well, but then a few sensors wouldn't seal properly. Those were replaced, then on another trip, same problem; leaking sensors. I lost confidence, removed all the sensors, put them in a box, and wrote it off a just my bad luck. Time marched on, and I kept driving with no TPMS. TST came under new ownership, and this was not their problem.

I've heard lots of good compliments about TST, and I still wanted a reliable system, so I contacted Mike on Memorial Day weekend. Very easy to do, BTW; they really do answer their calls 7 days a week! Amazing.

I told Mike that this now older system is doing me no good, and I'd like to see what it would take to get it back to 100%. He asked me to send it in, and a few days after they received it, Mike called me back. We chatted about the system, and then he made an offer that I absolutely couldn't refuse!

Today, I received the new equipment, and I am excited to get it installed, programmed, and finally drive with confidence once again, that tire pressures, and temps are under constant surveillance. We will be leaving for our next RV trip in a few days, and I can't tell you how reassuring it will be have this.

So here's a big THANK YOU to Mike, the owners, and the staff, at Truck System Technologies. These guys are the very best.

CaptBill,
"Ditto" type of story for me with TST.

Went to my Dr. last week and he wanted to use his finger but it wasn't in the air!

Okay, just a little more on the serious side, what does anyone use as their valve stems for the rear duals. I'm putting on 10" DuallyValve stems with wheel grommets for the inner dual, but the outer dual has me "slightly" confused. It presently has a 3" straight valve that goes from the front side of the outer dual to the inside. To fill or check one has to go through the wheel hole. A truckers gauge, withe the reverse chuck, has to be used to check pressure. A 3" valve does not need TMSP support but I would like to put in another grommet. Getting to the valve cap on the flow through TPMS is going to be a problems, so I'm thinking.

Any suggestions?

I would think that a short straight valve stem would be ideal for the outer dual. Basically like a car tire valve, but of course a metal heavy duty one compatible with the wheels and pressures.

Thanks Adam, I'm thinking that also. I have contacted DuallyValves and they are suggesting the vh574ec part number which is part of the DuallyValve kit for the Freightliner with 4-1/8x3" oval wheel holes. A shorter straight stem would work as long as I can get my fingers to the valve cap.

I think I'll go with their suggestion.
