TST TM-510 TPMS Long Antenna, Is it Needed on 40' MH

I plan on installing the TST TM-510 TPMS on my MH.

My question is will I need the long antenna with a 40' MH?

If you found it necessary, where did you mount it and how did you run the cable forward to the monitor?

Thanks

There is some discussion here TPM rear antenna location? .Apparently it plugs into a cig. lighter. I have a 36' MH and use TST and don't need an antenna. I think you may not need one as well. TST told me to try it first without it to see if I needed one.

I use the TST system on my 40' DP and my Toad and have not needed the long antenna. Very happy with the system

I have the TST system on the coach and the toad. I don't need to use the long antenna or the repeater. I have had my system since February and it has worked great.

I was leaning towards the TST TPMS until I read this:

"Sensors detect pressure and temperature readings every six seconds and transmit data to dash monitor every five minutes."

A lot can happen in 5 minutes.

I have the new 507 system, and sometimes lose some of the sensors on my toad. Not always the same one, sometimes more than one. I never lose any of the coach tires. It shipped with a non powered dipole antenna with a pretty long cable, but I've not used it yet.

I need to find a pernmament place to mount the display, and route and use the antenna.

As far as the 5 minute remark, I did not see this in the docs that I recall. And 5 minutes is not that long. I don't think these systems are to tell you you have a sudden explosive blowout. I've had a couple of those, did not require any extra gizmos to bring it to my attention.

I had lose of signal with a Hella TC-400 on my 5er, but it said it was not for trailers. I moved the receiver as far back under my truck bed as I could. It helped, but still lost a tire randomly.

This is straight from TST's website:

Each 510 wireless sensor weighs 23 grams, and each 507 sensor weighs 13 grams, both of which are negligible weights; each screws onto the existing valve stem of each tire monitored while the receiver remains within your view in your vehicle. Each sensor has its own individual code that is easily entered into the monitor. This way, the monitor will only recognize and report data from your sensors and no other vehicle's system. The monitor then highlights a tire and reports tire temperature and pressure. It will rotate around the electronic diagram on the screen and it will report temperature and pressure of each tire monitored approximately every two minutes. The system will immediately focus and report data and alarms will sound and icons will flash on the screen in the event of gradual tire deflation, rapid tire deflation, or elevated tire temperature.

I have a TST system and I'm not sure about the 5 min because when I remove the sensor to adjust the pressure it sets the alarm off immediately.

Maybe if no major changes happen to temp or pressure it only updates every 5 min?.?

I was corrected. Pretty sure if there is a major loss of air, it alarms immediately. What's the best price on a 10 wheel setup, or is it one of those items with a set price? If set, I'm gonna order one soon. I like the size of the monitor and the end user changeable batteries.

I get a good read on all coach tires with out the antenna. Only had the system a couple months, but so far I like it. I have had a few questions and found customer service to be very satisfactory!
