Interesting as mine gives me an alarm when it loses contact with a sensor. ANd they are definetly treating you very well giving you a free repeater. They offered to give me a free repeater too as long as I give them 60 bux first when it was determined my sensors are too far from the receiver.

Glad things turned out good for you. And as OC recommended use metal valve stems.

I have the flow thru TST and have not had a leak problem. Replaced two sensors that stopped working and the customer service was excellent. Shipped to me in 2 days at no cost. I have mine on a 35 ft fiver which puts them about 40 feet from the receiver and have had no problems with reception.

As I recall, it alarms if it hasn't heard from the sensor in 10 minutes or so. So if it gets the signal intermittently, that will prevent the alarm you're talking about, but it may be in it's "intermittent" state when the "losing pressure" alarm is sent to the receiver, which means you won't know about the failure for about 10 minutes.

TST TPMS really stands up on there product. Recieved the repeater today and easy install. Had a tire blow out on the toad with out repeater and didn't get the warning, just too far. Now with the repeater when I just start unscrewing the sensor the montor starts beeping. Recommed anyone with a long HM get the repeater. Dan even called me to make sure everything was good. Can't ask for better customer service.

I echo Old Coot. I recently changed out the rubber stems for Stainless Metal stems. After a 4000+ mile trip, tire pressure remained constant, no loss of air, etc. I went with the TST 510 system (batteries have 5-year life rather than needing to be changed yearly or more - downside is the sensors must be removed to put air in the tire!) The metal stems I installed are 1-piece and need no extenders. Worth the price of hte metal stems for the sense of security. My tire guy charged me $8/tire to install them and balance the tire.
