I should have read my recent post a little bit closer--

I was refering to PSI--- It should have read " + or - 1 PSI "

Sorry,

I ordered a system yesterday. I will be putting it to good use. Leaving the end of the month for a coast to coast trip. Will be on the road for about 2 months. I will let you know how well it works. Looks to be one of, if not the best system out there. I was in trucking for many years and know the importance of air pressure and heat in a tire.

the tst system gets both temp and pressure readings from the sensor that screws on to the metal valve stem on your vehicle.

I have been using the TST system for over a year now during both cold, hot rain and snowing weather and I have been very pleased with the system. It has twice alerted me to low air pressure on two tires that I am sure would have been tire failures down the road. I have the repeater at the back of the motorhome and the 10 tire sensors. The motorhome has steel valve stems and my Saturn Vue has original rubber factory stems and both have held up with no stem failures. The only thing I would like to see is some sort of small light or flashing dot on the repeater just to verify that it is on and working. I am a visual person and plugging in something and assuming that it is working just does'nt agree with me. Although since using the repeater I get zero failed sensor readings from my toad wheel sensors so It must be picking up the signal. All in all, a nice performing system for a very reasonable price. TST keep up the good work.

I know my pressures will be different. But.. What Temp setting is High? and What pressure setting is low to set off the alarms.. I hope I explained this well.

I set my tire pressure low alarm at 10 pounds below my set pressure, example my fronts are set at 110 and my low alarm is 100 PSI so I can react to a possilble leak before I possibly damage the tire. Also as the tire heats up driving it will exceed the original pressure setting. I set my temperature at 120 degrees as a guess because the outside temperature does increase tire temp but I have never had a temp alarm. There is not a lot of information on what is considered an excessive hot tire, most information state that low pressure will cause excess heat in the tire. Most of the time I find that the tires are a little above the actual outside temperature. In the hot summer they run hotter than in winter. Hopes this helps you....

i run normal tp 90-92 psi cold. i have 19.5 inch michelins. on my tst system, i set my low pressure alarm at 85 psi and the high pressure alarm at 151 psi. i set the high temperature alarm at 158 deg f. before i installed the tst system, i ran 100-105 psi cold.

per info on this forum and from tire manufacturers, normal tire temperatures measured at the bead can be about 60 degrees hotter than ambient air temperature. the rear inboards can be 20-30 deg. hotter than outboards. the danger point is about 190-200 deg measured at the bead.
per info on this forum, brake temperatures of about 400 degrees indicate a problem with a brake.

buck62, I am a distributor for TST and thoroughly appreciated your post #47 above. It is one thing for TST or me as a distributor to say the things you spoke to; but, when an actual user speaks to a very positive experience it has a whole different ,meaning and impact. I wish you well and stay safe out there, Ken Roberts....

My screen is different. It looks like a tractor and trailer. Did I do something wrong? It works good but just a different screen,

you can erase from the screen the positions that you do not use. my dw read me the numbers and i input them in each position. i can't remember how i erased the unused positions.

UPS 34,

My monitor is of an older design. I couldn't understand the printed instructions and I called TST. They sent me a new instruction manual, via the internet, that was more user friendly. It had a different monitor shown--- that's probably the one you received.

Should work fine---

Good luck,

Any position you don't program (you leave at the original default FFFF setting) will simply not display when the receiver has been set up. Only those programmed with sensor ID numbers will display on the screen
