The EK215T10 by Bellacorp looks good as no repeater is needed to 100 feet and I'm reading on the amazon questions that they update every 30 seconds. Sounds promising as well as a little cheaper than others at $377 for a 10 sensor system. Not a lot out there on Bellacorp, though. Based in Dallas but not finding any definitive info makes me nervous.

I'm going with the EezTire, I like the fact that the sensors will spin if someone try's to remove them. I had two stolen and also I don't want some kid to let the air out of one of my rears. I think I read somewhere that the unit cycles every six seconds, that seams like a long time to me. I also like the size, though I would like to know what the overall size is. Think I will call them tomorrow.

I would think they would not last that long if they did that. They say it will give the cold temp with no motion needed. I question that also. That's why I would like some input from someone who has this system. I would not want the flow thru sensors, just more crap to screw up.


I have the TST 507 for 3 years, no repeater, 40' plus toad. Flow through sensors on RV, regular sensors on toad. Flow thrus haven't "screwed up" for me and would NOT b without them, to much trouble otherwise. Sensor Batteries r easy to change, last about two years. Yes it reads the "cold" temperature. The main unit battery is "chargeable/rechargeable" so those batteries aren't replaced. The sensor batteries transmit 24/7 and last about two years average, the main unit battery needs to be recharged or plugged in, otherwise it runs down in a couple days.

The TST units don't broadcast all the time but do immediately broadcast if a low pressure or high temp is encountered.

If TST doesn't broadcast all of the time, where is the psi and temperature readings that are there 24/7 coming from?

Short term memory in the monitor unit. I just holds the previous readings till new ones are broadcast, which is every few minutes or an immediate due to a detected problem.

I just had to replace the batteries in my TST sensors last month..lasted about 2 yrs on the dot (I am so glad they are replaceable!). Batteries are so cheap I just leave the sensors on the stems all the time (I know some with non-replaceable batteries take them off when in storage to save the battery).

Thanks, all good info. You mean it will read cold pressure before you hit the road. I ordered today, got twelve sensors. Motorhome, Jeep JK and enclosed motorcycle trailer (not at the same time!). 2004 Pace Arrow 37-C but it has three closets across the back with mirror doors. Hope they don't block the signal.

Yes it reads the pressure before we hit the road, I always fire up the TST before starting the MH, if tires and pressure isn't right, I am not going anywhere.

Thanks, he told me it could take a few minutes so I'll start it when I go out to get packed up. I ask him about the battery life considering it's always on. He said standard battery's would last about two years and the premiums would last three to four years. whatever a premium is, I didn't ask.

"otherwise it runs down in a couple days"

Have you confirmed the display is only good for a couple of days? My TPMS display claims 30 days on a full charge. I know it's good for at least a week.
BUT my unit is Tire Traker so as they say your mileage may vary.

Sorry for any confusion, I have never run the battery all the way down, so I don't specifically know how long it lasts. I have never used it for more than a few days without recharging it, even though it wasn't fully discharged. I have a 12 volt charging adapter and plug it into the lighter outlet to charge when using it.
