Camping World is having a sale on the TST TPMS model 510RV for $288.00, which has 6 sensors and the repeater. Anyone have experience with this product.

I have a TST 507 with the flow through sensors. The 507 system has replaceable sensor batteries. Works great and great customer service. A simple search for TST or TPMS will give you hours of reading.

I'd pay extra (and I did) to get the 507 system over the 510. The 507's have user replaceable batteries, (about every 1 to 2 years) the 510's sensors have to be replaced about every 5 years. Over the long run the maintenance cost is about the same but I prefer to replace my own batteries.
When I was a PressurePro distributor/dealer the one thing I disliked about their system was the need to replace the whole sensor unit when the batteries got weak.
The sensor's are not interchangeable between the 510 and 507 either.
I have a 6 sensor system, 2 of the cap style on the front tires and 4 flow throughs on the rear. The flow throughs were too long for the front's and looked vulnerable.

Thanks! I was wondering what the difference was between the two systems.

I bought a 510 4-sensor system in 2008. Only had to swap one sensor out for a new battery, the other 3 worked until I stopped using it 2 weeks ago. Near as I can figure that system served me well for about 40,000 miles. I made a reply/comment on the last page of the TST thread on the supporters board about what, why, when if you care to visit that board.
P.S. the 510 is available with user-replaceable batteries-annually, I chose the sealed sensors.

I'd buy from TST direct. Before I bought the 507 system, I also saw the Camping World sale. I went in and talked to the sales people. I needed 10 sensors (6 for the RV, 4 for the toad). The sales people did not have a clue. Also, even with the sale, the cost ended up being more at Camping World for the 10 sensor unit than it was directly from TST. The service I have received from TST was exceptional. They will help you make the right choice for your needs, and if you go for putting the sensors on the toad, the will tell you if you may need a repeater based on length, etc.

If you ask nice, you may even get a 15% off deal....

That must be something fairly new as the TST site says they only come with replaceable sensors.

Quote:
How long do the sensor batteries last?

On average the 510 sensor
batteries last between 5 and 7 years and the 507 batteries are intended to be changed approximately every 10-12 months. The sensors stop transmitting after being disconnected from the tires. If you park your commercial vehicle for extended periods of time or if you store an RV for the winter, you can remove the sensors and extend battery life. The included battery life estimate is based upon full time use.

What happens when sensor batteries do expire?

As with all wireless systems, when 510 sensor batteries
do finally die, you can simply return them to us. For $19.95, we will replace all sensor gaskets, we will replace the shell, we will replace the battery, and we will tender to you a reworked sensor ready for 5+ more years of service. The 507 batteries are intended to be changed approximately every 10-12 months. The 507 sensors operate utilizing a CR1632 battery which is readily available and easy to change.
From previous experience with the PressurePro system I knew I needed the repeater. Seems Newmar adds extra metal around the rear axle and it tends to block the signals.

+1 from me on the TST system. I've had the 507 with ten sensors for over a year now. I'm starting to get some dead batteries, but that's expected. System works great, great Customer service (I've only had 1 issue, on my initial setup). I agree you should buy from TST direct, just go to their website. Home - Truck System Technologies, Inc

You can buy the new version 507 direct from TST with free shipping and no tax. Just tell them the price and they will match it.

O.k. I ordered the 507 model directly from TST today. I spoke with "Mary", who was very helpful with product information. Had I opted for the 510 model she was willing to match the CW price. She mentioned my order wouldn't be shipped until Monday, which is o.k. seeing the system is on sale (w/6 sensors $299.99). I feel much better knowing I'll be able to monitor the condition of the tires to, hopefully, avert a dangerous situation at 60 mph.

Do you have valve stems? I have them on the back tires. It makes the install a breeze.

My 507 flow through stems were tight on the front rims, they work fine, but I need to get some extensions for the front.

If you go to the iRV2 TST product post, thread 'TST TPMS Systems', you can look at the posts for other people discussing their install, and see feedback from the CEO of TST.

I didn't get the flow thru sensors. It doesn't appear to be much room in the wheel opening.
