TST Color Monitor

It is not available until November, we did a pre-release at the Hershey Show, and the RVIA Pomona CA Show. Mike Thompson RV has a couple in at the show. Feel free to contact me with details how to get it from them.

Thanks,

What other features does the monitor have other than color? Bigger? Easier to read in the sun?

After a lot of research I purchased "eezrv" but have not installed it yet. I purchased the one that is not "pass through" meaning I have to remove the sensor to add air. I did it this way as the sensor is smaller is size and I did not feel it would be that inconvenient. After reading through all the info I realized that it has a rechargeable battery and will run approximately 60 hours on a charge. This means I don't have to keep it plugged into a 12 volt supply while in operation which to me is a plus as I already have enough "stuff" to keep charged. Should have it installed in the next couple of weeks so will post back to report.

We bought the same unit before a recent 5000-mile trip. It has worked as advertised on that trip and several trips locally. I considered buying the booster, but I decided to try it without. It finds the senders on my car even if my wife's driving it and following. I didn't expect that.

We didn't get the pass through either and didn't use the tamper-proof thingies. I checked the pressures against my Accugage and a digital gauge I have, and they all agreed. Since then I just power it up and use the tire monitor to check pressures. I seldom have to remove one for adding air.

TST First Trip

TST seemed to be the best value for the money. Sorry I missed the new monitor. I ordered the system with 10 sensors to also equip the toad.

Thanks again.
Made our first trip with the TST 507. My inside duals have valve stem extensions that accommodated installation of the sensors, but my outside duals point inboard so I couldn't get the sensors on the outside duals prior to departure.

Initially, all good. Four RV and four Toad sensors all working. About 80 miles out, the right front alerted. Stopped and checked. It was down to 80 psi from 105. Suspecting a sensor leak, I sprayed soapy water on the end of the valve stem and on the sensor. No bubbles. Reinflated and continued. Alerted again in about 20 miles. Called Good Sam Roadside Assist. Four hours later, my new spare was on the right front in the dark and the rain (a whole separate story!). The tire changer soap-mopped the removed tire. Found bubbles where the valve stem connects to the wheel when slight side pressure was applied to the valve stem. Tires and stems are 6 years old. Spent the night in the truck stop where the tire was changed. Joined my group at the campground next day. A friend with the same TST system had the same problem 2 years ago. Suspect the weight of the sensor moved the old valve stem just enough to cause the leak at the stem/wheel interface. No problem with identical installation on the left front.

RV is in the tire shop getting all new valve stems solely for the purpose of supporting installation of the TST TPMS sensors. Hopefully they will be able to install outside dual stems that are positioned to accept the sensors.

Otherwise, I like the TST system. You can't watch it while driving, except for a quick glance during which it could be reading any tire, but the alert system works as advertised. I liked being able to inflate the tire without removing the sensor. I really like being able to read both the pressure and temperature of each tire. The TST pressure reading on the leaking tire was consistent with my gauge reading. No problem reading the Toad without a booster on our Bounder 39Z. No regrets on selecting TST, other than not waiting for the new color display, but I wanted a system for this trip.

My recommendation:
Don't put any TPMS sensors on old valve stems like mine which were steel with rubber at the stem/wheel interface.

But for the coach and when I have the trailer attached it works great.

Press the link and minus buttons simultaneously to drop the trailer from the screen. Press the link and plus buttons to bring it back on.

Received my TST 507 color monitor system today, got it set up and looks very cool. Easy to see and read psi and temp at same time. I got the caps but donít fit through the cut outs on rims, had to put valve extensions on front and 2 outer rears. 3 of the sensors donít read because of the extensions. When extensions are not too tight down I can release air out of them but when tightened down, I can not get air to come out? Can valve cores go bad? I did back some cores out with a remover, then tightened them back in, but nada. OR are there better types of extensions out there?

The only extensions that I found to work properly is Wheel Master. Many places sell them including TST. Only thing that solved my problem.

We have EezTire on our 38' Challenger. Only had it a few months, but works great so far. Takes a few minutes for all of the sensors to come online, but no biggie. I usually hook it up before final preps when leaving and she's up and running before I fire up the engine.

Went and picked up different brand of extenders, sensors work! The Slime brand is what gave me trouble.
