08 Monaco Camelot Getting New Tires what about TPMS Recommendation?

Since rear tires needed replacement I have decided to get all 8 new tires on our coach. I did order the TST 507 TPMS System that goes on the outside. I was thinking while tires are being replaced is it better to get the system that goes in the tires? Any pros and cons?

Our 08 did not come with TPMS from factory so trying to get ahead of the game

Great! No issues with external TPMS sensors?

I've also had the TST system for a few years. I installed the repeater in the area inside the rear cap above the engine. I also have two sensors for our tow dolly.
It takes few min each morning for all the sensors to check in.
I keep a sensor wrench with my tire pressure gauge.

I've thought about installing internal sensors but so far it's all worked well. The advantage would be the temperature would be more accurate inside the tire and you would not have to remove the sensor to add air.
But, it would be harder to change batteries.

Good choice with TST 507.

Same system here, with external sensors. Easy to replace batteries (had system long enough that they needed changing). Very accurate too.

Friend has internal sensors on his GM van, and he said never again... close to $100 to dismount wheel/tire, separate tire from rim, replace sensor (new), and put it all back together.

I have the TST System 507 with the non-flow thru sensors (some members have had problems with the flow thru sensors). I removed the "theft lock" by just removing the 4 screws holding the cap. This makes it much easier to put the sensor on.
