Will the new color monitor have a backlit display?

Also, have you considered the ability for the display to reflect specific vehicle types such as motorhome, motorhome with tow, fifth-wheel and travel trailer?

The new color monitor will be back lit, it will have 3 power options
1. Solar or
2. 12 volt plug in or
3. Hard Wire

The system will also not have icons it will display color coded written alerts. Such as Low Tire, Rapid Air Loss, etc.

Yes you will be able to have the ability to display specific vehicle types.

We are very excited to bring this new technology to the market.

Thank you,

Mike Benson

We are trying to be able to unveil it at the Super Show in Tampa and Quartzsite. It is going to be real close if we will have them by the shows, but we are trying. All IRV2 members can pre-order the monitor starting December 1st.
Thanks,

We're picking up our Ventana in February...hmmm.

Any sneak peak photos available??? Price point??? Number of sending units??? Compatibility with current 507 senders?

The reason I ask is... I own a unit that came with 6 sending units...I'll need a total of 12 sending units for my new Motorcoach and toad... It's actually cheaper to purchase another kit with 6 sending units on sale...vs adding sending units alone. But, if the color model is reasonable, and comes packaged with 6 sending units...I may just have to wait a month or two... Hmmm...

The good news is it will operate with our existing 507 Sensors. I will have photos soon to share. Let me know what you what you would like to do about the other 6 sensors you need in the meantime.

I've had the TST 507 on two coaches now and the toad. The slight temp/pressure variances I experience are often due to either sunlight exposure, exhaust temp (toad tires), or simply the small percentage of acceptable accuracy variance. I do experience the ocassional temporary loss of communication with a sensor but not often.

Bottom line for me is this... few companies provide the excellent level of customer service that this company does. The system routinely does what I expect it to do and the company has consistently responded to any product issue without hesitation and without cost.... period.

They've got my continued loyalty

I don't have much issue reading the monitor so I'm not sure if the new color monitor will be of interest to me. Although I look forward to checking it out.

cheers,
Joopy

One thing that I have not seen mentioned is the fact that "most" tire gauges are Type B. These have a tolerance of of around 2% mid scale.

So when you compare tire pressures, each device could be at the opposite end of their tolerance.
This could actually be 4psi difference if one device is low and the other is high.

I know with digital displays we expect perfect accuracy.
But the is actually a analog element, and the analog output is converted to a digital value. We would have to spend big $$$ to get the accuracy that we really want.

Dan

Actually, I believe you are mostly wrong. Whether a digital pressure gauge has an analog element or not has nothing to do with the accuracy of the device. It is still the best pressure gage type most of us can expect to get our hands on at a fairly low price.

In my case, I utilize the ACCUTIRE MS-4021B Digital Tire Pressure Gauge as my PSI measurment standard. It is accurate to within 0.05 PSI, reading air pressure from 5-150 PSI in 0.5 pound increments. It is only used to check the accuracy of my AccuGage AU160 Inflator/Gauge. In my case, the ACCUTIRE is only used as a calibration standard.

Here is how I check the calibration of the AccuGage AU160:
1. I inflate my right front tire to 95 psi (my target tire pressure) based on the reading taken with the ACCUTIRE Digital Gauge.
2. I then check the tire pressure with the AccuGage AU160 Analog Gauge. In my case, it compares exactly to the Accutire digital gauge at 95 psi.
3. I then apply a sticky lable, on which I record that "95 = 95", to the back of the AccuGage AU160 gauge.
4. Optional: repeat steps 1 and 2 for any other targeted pressures you might utilize.

Now, when I inflate my tires to 95 psi using the AccuGage I am assured they are very close to being at 95 psi plus/minus 0.5 psi.

Jeffery,

Take a look at the ANSI spec (B40).
You will see that a grade B gauge has the same accuracy regardless of being digial or analog.

ANSI B40 spec

Digtal is just a little easier to read.

The sad thing is it most gauges don't publish what accuracy grade they meet.

Regards,
Dan

Never heard of that before, ours has been trouble free. I've never seen a report of problems with the SmarTire system on the Country Coach section either. But ours is probably the commercial system.

I can't speak to any other air pressure gauges, but I will support my source and research with regard to the G. H. Meiser & Co. Accu-Gage AU-160 Inflator Tire Gage (see Dial Tire gauges). This clearly states it is a "ANSI B40.1 Grade B gauge". And, I outlined that fact in an earlier Post #11.

Also, I think the published specifications of the ACCUTIRE MS-4021B Digital Tire Pressure Gauge (within 0.05 PSI from 5-150 PSI in 0.5 PSI increments) places it in a position to be a great economical tire pressure measuring standard device whether it is covered under ANSI B40 or not.

A couple of days ago I checked and set my MH tires to 95 PSI @ 68 degrees F. Yesterday morning it was 50 degrees and my TST 507 indicated that my tire pressure had fallen to 89 to 90 PSI. Adding back 2 PSI for my known TST sensor error, the actual pressures were 91 to 92 PSI (within a plus/minus 5 PSI typical reset margin). After running for 15 to 20 minutes the tire pressure had reached 100 to 102 PSI based in the TST 507 Monitor. Over my three hour drive time the tires had stabilized to a running pressure range of 104 to 106 PSI based on the TST 507 System.

Having what I feel are good tire pressure inflation gauges (Accutire & Accu-Gage) and a TST 507 Monitoring System (with known error factors); I feel I have the best equipment possible to assure safe travel in my motorhome.
