TST 507 for me too. I don't think I've ever heard 'anyone' that has a tpms ever say it wasn't money well spent. Saved my bacon on more than one occasion. I wouldn't tow without them any more.

Amazon Prime. I think it was $309.00 for 6 with free 2 day shipping.

Didn't want to start a whole new thread so I just jumped in on this one.

Again yey, saved me a probable blowout. Driving home from a weekend trip and an alarm started going off. Scared the crap out of me at first because there were no warning lights on the dash. Then I remembered the TPMS, checked that and saw the DS outside dual was getting low. Dropping about one psi for every revolution of the system. Pulled off when it was safe and found that the valve extender had come loose and was leaking. Tighten it back up, used my coach air compressor to fill it back and down the road we went.

If I wouldn't have had a TPMS I would have never know the tire was loosing pressure and would have probably been void of any psi by the time I got home.

Will never leave home with out it.

I have the tire minder system on mine. Comes with the extender and six transmitters. I had extra transmitters from my older model that will work with this model, so now I have them on the coach, the toad and the dolly.

Do you have to offset the weight of the sensor to maintain balance?

How are they secured against theft?

No idea about balancing. But since I'm about to install mine, I'd love to know.

For theft, the TST use a set screw to "lock" them on. You need their special little tool to loosen it.

The sensors are very light.

You should definitely rebalance the tires as I found out and others have verified that it threw the trailer tire off/out of balance by 0.5 oz. Was the same on all 5 tires (4 on the ground and the spare).
