Whatís your preferred TPMS sensor system?

I used the Eez-Tire with my Airstream, and now I need something for the Newmar. I think the Eez-Tire system was okay, but it was finicky and sometimes gave false readings. I added a repeater which helped, but even that was sometimes unreliable.

Whatís your preferred system? Iíve heard great things about TST systems and they offer one with pass-through sensors. Iím seriously considering it. Does anyone here have experience with them? The pass-through sensors require metal valve stems, which I obviously have. Do I need to install the valve stem supports if I used these sensors?

Thanks for your comments and advice.

I installed a TST507 with the regular sensors last year. Been on 3 trips with it, works great, never lost a signal and no indication of wrong readings.

Not a big deal with the regular sensors, I did have to add air when I went from ~90F temps to 40F temps, simply unscrewed and added air.

I had the screw-on sensor caps with my Eez-Tire system and they were pretty simple to use. I used the anti-theft lock nuts with them, so a special little wrench was required to remove them.

I have been using a TST507 for 13 years. All that I replaced was the monitor. I went from the black and white to the color monitor. It does what itís supposed to. Iíve been vy satisfied with it.

I have used the TST 507 for 9 years, two different coaches. The TST and my internal Valor TPMS system are always within 2lbs of each other. With the TST I have sensors for my tow vehicle as well. I installed the repeater in the right rear compartment. It is powered by the chassis batteries. I use the screw on sensors, not the flow through. I do not use the security locks. I have never had a wheel drop out or a false reading.

When not towing a vehicle I can very easily ďdropĒ the toad from the screen.

Any time I am at a rally that TST is an exhibitor at I all ways get new O rings for the sensorsÖ.at no charge.

I have used other TPMS system and was never satisfied. The TST-507 has been 100% satisfactory.

I too used the TST 507 on my last 2 coaches. Worked great with the flow thru sensors and never had a problem.

I have had TST 507 pass thru sensors for 7 years and like TonyDi I changed the black and white monitor to a color one a few years back. They have great customer support. Even though my London Aire has a built in tire pressure system I still use this on my RV and truck.

It sounds like TST for the win!

I purchased a TST 510 system 7 years ago and had no issues until the batteries began to fail, and TST stopped support on the 510 system.
Replaced with the 507 system and again no issues for the last 2 years.
BTW I have not had a need for the included repeater with either system. Used on a 35' 5th Wheel.

TST doesn’t seem to offer a kit with the screw-on cap style sensors any longer, so I ordered the kit with the flow-through sensors. The kit came with the repeater, so I’ll install that in the basement area.

I had a double tire blowout in the past at highway speed while towing my Airstream. That experience has made me a bit obsessive about tire pressures.

Quick google search showed many outlets to purchase unit with screw on cap. Amazon, etrailer, and many more???

It is interesting, whenever this thread appears, the majority of responders recommend the TST system, but each year when the Good Sam owner's awards come out, Tire Minder is always number 1. I personally have no negative information about the TST, it sounds like a very reliable robust system. We have had the Tire Minder for a lot of years, and have had good luck with that system too. It too allows you to delete the toad from the monitor when you are driving the motorhome without the toad behind it.

Dennis, The TST Vendor information on irv2 doesn't show a vast selection of kits, but there are plenty of vendors that do. Here is one of the listed vendors:

https://www.rvupgradestore.com/TST-1...07-RV-10-C.htm

You can get either 2 packs or 4 packs of extra sensors if needed.
