Yes, my certified gauge will read 120 but the monitors will read 116, 117 (x3) or 118 (x2) for the six tires. I just use it as a change monitor. If they get to 105 I then take action. They show about 130 at road speed and after about 20 minutes.

I ran into a similar problem with TST found out that the price in the picture was for the 510 system, the sensors on the 507 is $15 more for each X ten = $150 more. Yet the same or identical sensors from EEZ is $15 less for each sensor. Guess it is called Marketing or shaft the customer.

Love my TST system. But, a little puzzled on temperatures. When my system reads, say 90f, my infrared monitor will show 125 when I hit the outside of the tires. This true even on shade side.

Not alarmed as long as the TST readings are consistent among 4 tires. Note the sunny side is always higher. I do have one tire reading that is always 5-7 lbs lower than others. Checked with manual reading and have concluded that monitor is understating.

I noticed my sunny side is always a few degrees warmer too. I'm sure that is normal and nothing to worry about.

I always find it interesting how much warmer the tires are on the sunny side, even way different in the winter.

As for accuracy, I checked against a known reliable digital gauge and all tires show 2 to 3 pounds less. Made me wonder if my gauge was accurate, but don't have any other way to check.

Like the other posters, as long as they are consistent in temp (other than sunny side) and pressure, the system does what I want it to do.

For the record, EEZ RV is not a dealer and does NOT sell the TST System. They are almost out of product which they bought (through us) as a Canadian distributor.

They will not have product once they sell out and TST will NOT honor warranty for their customers.

BUYER BEWARE.

If that is the case, then how come the monitors are different? than TST's? How come a 3 year warranty when TST only gives a 2 year warranty. Explain That Please. I think that EEZ gets their product from the same supplier in China. Have to check and see if Ali Baba can shed some light on the subject.

I think what dan is trying to say is they allowed eez to sell the product in Canada and not the US.. I don't know what happened but maybe there was a violation in their agreement. At any rate eez will probably have to design their own system and get their own supplier. The displays were almost identical to TST even though some buttons were different.

So it does not look like people that purchase this system will get a warranty once eez supply runs out.

I could be totally wrong on this. Maybe TST will change their mind later and honor the warranty. They are a great company

Where does one get a certified gauge, who certifies them and how often ? Are they expensive?

I think you are wrong about this. EEZ has given a 3 year warranty and I am sure that they can get more or warranty work from the same china supplier. Also the sensors have the same spec's as the ones that are made for several other well known brands besides the TST brand. Most all units except one that I know of come from china including the TST Brand I have been told.

Your right, I am probably wrong. Maybe they already have their own supplier. I was just trying to read in between the lines of what Dan said.

I got mine at NAPA, was about $30 or so. I never routinely use it to check my pressure. I set a tire using it, then check my other gauges by it.

I've seen 10#'s difference from shady to sunny side, depending on how long it's been in the sun/shade.
