Best phone customer service I have received in a long time.

Now we'll see how long it takes for the replacement to arrive..
Replacement sensor arrived this am....priority mail....

I'd call that FAST! 6 days elapsed time from phone call to replacement in hand!

TST Sensor

Yoda2405, I like the idea of the Gorilla Glue. Is there anything to look out for as far as using it? Do you just run some in the cap of the sensor?

I had all my valve stems replaced with longer solid stems to get rid of the extensions. Unfortunately the inside duals' valve stem is still 2 - 3 inches inside the wheel hole. I built a an extension handle on my removal tool that seems to work pretty good but it still has the tendency to slip off. Attached are a couple of pictures of it. I used a hollow aluminum tube (closet rail) and slit it to accept the "wings" of the insertion tool. I then locked it in place with a set screw. Hope this will help some of you get to the inside dual.

Solid valve stems-no extensions

Go to www.borgtiresupply.com and look for Dually valve stems. They are one piece solid metal stems that do not require extensions, are soft enough to form into most all applications, do not require monkey glue and they stick out just enough for TST caps. Mention to them if you require screened valve stems for the equal powder balance system. It's no charge if you tell them up front. They will also provide rubber stabilizers for the wheel openings if required. Be prepared to identify your wheel type or measure the openings yourself. Pricing is fair and they were very pleasant to work with.
They also advertise in the FMCA rag. Check the classifieds in the back.
I have been using them along with TST caps and it's a joy knowing I do not have to fool around with extensions any more.

Large Truck Rims:
To gain easy access to the outer dually valve stem facing inwards:
You can loosen (not remove) the metal valve stems at the bottom and turn them to a desired position (45, 90 or 180 degrees) and re-tighten the nut at the bottom. Don't over loosen or over-tighten. No air will escape (Gently loosen and move)

Flossy, the glue does not go on the cap but on the stem side of the sensor. If you look at the sensor the plastic shell spins on the aluminum threaded piece that attaches to the stem. I glued the 2 curved sides so I could still use the tool on the flat sides if necessary to tighten the sensor. It was not necessary as hand tight has been adequate so far and it is much easier reaching in between the duals and installing the sensor on the inner dual with your hand, at least on my set up. I removed the valve extensions completely on the inner wheels. I used a small bead along the 2 curved sides of the threaded aluminum to make it rigid to the plastic cap or shell piece.

Thanks for the clarification. I'll have to gather up my sensors and get it done. I think the theft possibility is fairly remote.

thanks

Dave

I just purchased the 10 sensor system for my new Winnie Sightseer 35J and Toad. No problems with the small antenna getting signals from Toad. I was really pleased that I did not have to find a place to mount the larger antenna.

I have nine sensors actually installed, but I am going to have to use the Gorilla Glue on the last one.

As soon as I programmed the sensors they immediately told me I had a low rear tire on the Toad which was parked 10 ft behind the MH. My first thought was that I had a bad sensor, or it was too far away, but sure enough only 20 psi in the tire.

I am going to like this system a lot. On my last trip, in our old motor home ,I had a rear tire go bad on the Toad. No TV monitor or tire sensors on that one and I did not know it until a trucker signaled me. It did $2000 damage to the Toad.

I hope that with the rear TV monitor on the new MH and the TST tire monitor, this won't happen again.

I've had a 10 tire TST system for some time, but I'm having trouble finding valve extensions for the MH. I installed 4 on the TOAD and they work perfectly. I will have to replace one sensor, but TST and I have been communication and as soon as I check out the other 5 I'll give them a call.

My wheel slots are to small for me to get my hands into. Anyone know of some good valve extensions for 22.5" tires.

i have 19.5" wheels and had to install 90 deg valve stem extensions from haltec to be able to use the tst system. i used 4 he-200's. they work well. check my previous post in the archives for pictures of my installation.

My rig came with solid metal extensions on the inner duals that leave the head of the valve stem about even with the outside of the hole in the wheel. I've seen metal extensions of various lengths at some NAPA stores. I had a cracked valve stem on one inner dual shortly after I bought my coach. I put the rubber donut stabilizers on the stem from the inner duals and have had no further problem in 6 yr and 50k miles. The stabilizers fit into the hole in the outer wheel to prevent the stem/extension from flexing from the centrifigual force as the wheel rotates. I altered my stabilizers to fit the sensors, but if the extension were just a bit longer that would not be necessary AND the sensors would be easier to get on and off. There are stabilizers available for round hole wheels or the triangle shape holes.

Yoda2405, does the gorilla glue application affect the TST warranty on the sensors?

FLossy,
I talked with Dan at TST and he stated that the Gorilla glue does not affect the warranty.
