After about 3 years of use, I am very happy with my Truck Systems Technologies (TST) -tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). I have the "flow through" pressure sensors. No separate amplifier required with a 30 ft trailer.

I have the TST 507RV 4 with flow through valves. Monitors tire pressure and temperature (Over heating axle or similar problems). I had a tire going down quickly this past summer, I received the warning, stopped, fixed the tire and pressed on. A tire failure has the potential to do some serious damage to RV's..

Did you change out the valve stems to the steel ones. I have a TST but have not installed it yet as I have the rubber valve stems on my TT.

Highway,

I have the rig's original tires with rubber stems and have had no problems in about 10.000 miles. I know lots of folks feel you need steel stems. I'll keep the rubber stems until one fails or I get new tires. I'll decide at that time if I switch to steel stems. On our prior rig I had trouble getting the sensors on and off with steel stems.

I have an older TST system and have been generally very pleased with the system. You do need rigid valve stems, and I would suggest using rigid brass stems vs. rigid steel stems as I just discovered an issue on mine. I had not had the sensors off in over a year ( few were just a bit low on the monitor, but not enough to worry about) and I decided it would be a good idea to take the monitors off and get all 6 up to the exact pressures prior to a trip. The bad news is all 6 are corroded to the valve stems and won't budge. Soak in WD did not help. So I am probably going to have the valve stems replaced in order to bet the sensors off.

Now, I do have an older system that has aluminum bodies, and I believe the newer systems are brass, I know the flow through system is.

I don't consider this their fault, and I am about to purchase the 12 sensor kit from TST for my new trailer and old truck.

I wouldn't leave home without some sort of tpms system on the trailer. My system far more than paid for itself in saved tires (you will catch a slow leak before it goes flat and ruins the tire) plus potential damage to the trailer when one blows out that you could have caught. Plus you can continue to a safe spot to change the tire while that slow leaker goes down.

You do not have to have metal stems if you use non-flow thru sensors.
I actually prefer these because there is less chance of a leak, and it is not obvious out what they are.
and they are lighter.

All,

Don't forget that the TST sensors measure temperature at the sensors.
The sensors are, relatively, a long way from the tire tread or wheel bearings and thus will be slow to respond to increased temperatures from those sources. I check the sensors' temperatures occasionally but pay close attention to pressures.

Another satisfied 3 year TST user here. My toad is 37 ft to monitor without needing a repeater.

I have the TireTech TP7004 TPMS. It was a little frustrating to get set up at the onset, but now that I understand how it works, I'm pretty satisfied. Am using 6 transmitters on the MH and 4 on the toad. Did not require a booster or repeater on my 40' coach. I'd give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. \ken

TST also and could not be happier, great folks to deal with as well. Was having some sort of reception issue with mine and they sent me a repeater free of charge. Fixed the problem and works like a dream, they stand behind their product and will do what it takes to make their customers happy it appears.

Wife's uncle bought a set at the same time I did for his coach and Toad and has had zero problems as well.

I bought the non-flow through type. I guess I can put them on with no issues with the rubber stems. I also have the fancy black alu rims that might support the stems more.
