TST 507 TPMS - tire checking senario q?

TST TPMS model 507 with flow-through sensors on the motorhome'a six tires.

Usage senario: coach has sat for a couple three weeks since last trip - during this time one of the tires has developed a leak and is down, say, 50% - I turn on the main unit - will it indicate a warning right away about the low tire? And show the errant tire pressure?

I have the 507 system with 6 flow through sensors on my motor home and I had the low temp setting to high and one cold morning the alarm started going off. So to answer your question I think that you will get an alarm and tire pressure reading, once your sensor connects with the monitor.

When I inquired with TST about this, there answer was yes it would warn you but it could take 10+minutes for all of the sensors to wake up and the monitor to get a reading.

Which for myself is fine cause I would turn it on, complete getting ready and then check all tire pressures on the monitor or deal with the alarm if it went off.

Yes, I have a 507 mounted on my MH and trailer. I have a slow leak on my trailer and every time I power up, it beeps with the low pressure tire. I think I'll have to fix it.

MIne normally takes 5 minutes or so after I turn it on to report all tires. Like Traps90 does, I always turn mine 507 on prior to readying up the rest of the rig. By doing this I know before I am ready to leave if I have an issue and allows me to drag out the air hose and correct tire pressures while the tires are still cool.

Does anyone know if there is any alarm from the TST 507 system if a tire pressure sensor that was working normally stops reporting temp/pressure?

Suppose the sensor's battery died -would the monitor alarm?

The alarm for the battery comes on before the battery is completely dead. Mine ran for a week before I replaced the dying battery in one of the sensors.

I lost one of my Sensors after the man at the tire shop did not install it properly and it set off the alarm.

Yes if a monitor is reporting and then goes dead there is an alarm when the system cycles to that tire. It is a loud single beep and then it stops when the system moves on to the next tire and when it gets back to the tire again if there is no reading it beeps again. If it's not working when you start the system then there is no beep or reading from the tire.
