You are not doing anything wrong. It's a TST system. I regret buying it, but maybe you have better luck with it. It will eventually go off by itself.

Does it turn off when unplugged? My TST system has worked very well for the past 4 years.

Mine stays on as long as it is plugged in.
No matter what I do with the switch.

X2; the product is excellent; far better than the {unnamed} brand I used to have! The company is very easy to deal with if you have questions or concerns.

Based on my experience, if the unit is plugged in it won't turn off. If you unplug it you should be able to turn it off.

Inside wheel of the dual axle

My apologies for maybe getting off target, but this thread provides a good opportunity to ask if anyone has had problems with the inside wheel of the dual axle. I have a valve extension from the inside wheel and have attached a pass through sensor to the extension. The sensor registers on the monitor inside the coach, but if I use a tire gauge to take a manual reading, no air escapes from the sensor to trigger the gauge. The sensor works fine when it is not connected to the extension. Has anyone had a similar problem, and, if yes, what did you do to fix the problem?

Thanks for any input you might be able to provide.

Regards,
OWV, Our Wandering View

It sounds like your TPMS sensor is opening the valve and getting a pressure reading. Your tire gauge is not depressing the valve enough to open the valve. Those extensions are finicky. They are essentially two valves. One on the rim and one on the end of the extension. They are linked together by a spring. For some reason the spring contracts and causes tolerance issues.

[moderator edit]TST ops 24-7 if plugged in, switch functions only in bat mode--is this an issue--think not! Also think display fades to dark to conserve bat, if in bat mode, vs plugged in to 12v. Ive decided that valve stems vary as do the pass-thru sensors. No problems with my install but did try switching the sensors from stem to stem to get the best fit on a friend's rig....need to hand tighten sensors to/near the max to get stems to seal correctly and to discharge air when needed....

I used to have similar problems with those inside dual extensions and even had a tire go flat because the extension had loosened. I ditched the extensions and installed Crossfire equalizers on both my duals. Now one TPMS monitors both tires; a pressure drop of ~10 pounds indicates one of the tires has dropped in pressure and the Crossfire valve has closed to prevent the other tire from depressurizing.

I turn off my TST by holding the - button for several long seconds.
