I have a small fishing tackle box and I put a label in each divided area noting wheel location. I only do that for my toad right now since I remove them regularly. I will get a separate similar tackle box for my MH sensors later and use the same concept.

You have the ability to set the warnings to different limits and settings whatever you so choose.

The sensors come labeled so you can't mix them up or have to label them when removed.

If the coach is going to be sitting for a while I always remove them to store in the box that they came in.

I chose the CAP sensors but they also offer the flow-through style. Personally I think the flow-through sensors are way too large and heavy to be throwing around on a tire stem. Besides, when you want to adjust air pressures you have to turn and unscrew the stem cap anyway, why not just unscrew the small CAP sensor to accomplish the same task.

I take mine off during the summer and used a Brother's P-Touch label maker to make 3/8x3/8" labels.

During my time as a PP distributor/dealer I only heard of one person losing them by theft. Late at night the PP unit sounded the alarm but they just turned it off without investigating it till the next morning.

I just installed a TST system last weekend - should I leave it on when we're parked somewhere, or should I turn it off? Does it make any difference?

I leave the TST sensors on the MH and remove them from the car when we are home for a month or longer. I charge up the receiver and use it for a long time without the cord hanging down. The literature says it will last 40 hours but I charge it up every few days when on the road.

I have the TST 510 system. The coach sensors are not locked but our Saturn sensors are locked. We have never had any stolen, however I was at recreation park a month ago and someone tried to remove a front sensor on my toad. They did not complete the effort but they did manage to partially loosen it enough to cause a flat tire which I found when I wanted to leave. I called for service and the provider aired up the tire and I replaced the sensor and everything has been fine since.

Alan I turn mine off when we reach our destination and usually turn it on the night before to check pressures, then turn it off until the next morning of travel.

I would but don't want to step on the original OP's toes. A story of frustration!
