As for my set up I have a 2011 390 RB 340. Mine dropped the signal frequently until I added the repeater. I located the repeater in the back compartment and ran a fused line to the battery. Very easy and works fine. I still occasionally get a drop signal but not a big deal. The customer service for TST is outstanding. They helped me so much. I would buy TST again mostly because of the service.
X2 on TST - we have used their product for several years and I agree they have platinum customer service!
I was thinking of the TST 507 internal kit. Yeah it is a bit more pricy than the external but it is a fire & forget system.

We had the TST 507 external on our 5er, and it seemed I would always forget to take them off when we were parked for a while. As long as the sensor is receiving pressure, it is transmitting which drastically reduces the battery life.
The TST-507 internal comes with a 7 year battery and the sensor is integrated in a brass valve stem. Of course, the only downside to this plan is having to un-mount ALL of your tires on the Berk and TOAD and put the valve stems in.
OTOH, I was thinking about Installing a dynamic tire balancing system in the MH & TOAD, so I would have to have the tires dismounted anyway.

Thoughts and commentary on my plan are certainly welcome!
