This is what we're getting ready to buy.(3yr warranty) It's on sale and free shipping. Be sure and look at the signal booster addon if your coach is long and you will be pulling a towed. I believe the 8pk would be $359.

If you haven't checked out the TST TPMS, give them a look. Really great customer service.

New User Replaceable Bat - Truck System Technologies, Inc

Call and talk to Dan or Mike @ 770-889-9012

I just got the flo-thru sensors and love the idea of not having to remove them to add air. I really like the size of the monitor.

My experience with TST has been perfect both in terms of performance and customer service.

I changed from the 510 to the 507 with flow thru sensors last year. I like beng able to adjust pressure without removing the sensor and like that the batteries are user replaceable.

I recommend the Tire SafeGuard TPMS.

This is the one that the OTR truckers have rated the most dependable with the least amount of false signals compared to the other brands.

I get my batteries from this guy. He's local and I usually get them the next day.

Energizers are $4.95 each at Autozone.

I've had a Pressure Pro system since they first came available and have only recently had to begin replacing due to battery life (almost 8 years).

PP sensors transmit to the monitor panel every 5 minutes, even if no change in status. They also transmit immediately if there is a pressure change of more than 12.5% from the baseline reading that was established when the sensor was installed on the tire,

Thanks for the heads-up. Radio Shack wants $6 @. Ordered 3 pkgs of 5 for my 12 set TST 507.

I also have 15 and plan on replacing all 10 of mine at start of my season in Oct. Don't know if they last longer than The Bunny, but I won't use Energizer batteries for anything. My experience is they leak where others don't.

The TST sensors also have a low battery alert for the sensors.

The best deal I've found for AA and AAA is Sunbeam Alkaline batteries at Dollar Tree stores. 4/$1. Just as much power and last just as long as other high end batteries.
