Can you provide more info about them....where can they be purchased?

Just to be clear, these worked for MY application. Please look at several options on Amazon to determine what may work for you.

My flow through sensors leaked on rubber stems. They did not leak when I tried them on my truck tires that had metal stems. When I called customer service about the problem they stated that they were not recommended for rubber stems. How ever they stated I could file down the brass sensor to get a better seal on the rubber stem. Needless to say I did not file down the sensors and was afraid to mount them until I can get metal stems.

I ordered this.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00XNVM0EM/

To my surprise.. It came with 6 sensors. Not 4, as stated.

Bonus!

Yes, you need to - even at a CG if you are there for a few days - if left on the valve stems, it runs the battery down.

Only if you want to extend battery life. Suppose to last 10-12 months. I leave mine in for the 3+ months while in FL and take them off when we get home in late Feb/early Mar. I just put them in a couple of weeks ago and will probably leave them in now until we get back from FL. Batteries are cheap and easy to replace.


From TST website:
How long do the sensor batteries last?
On average the 510 sensor batteries last between 5 and 7 years and the 507 batteries are intended to be changed approximately every 10-12 months. The sensors stop transmitting after being disconnected from the tires. If you park your commercial vehicle for extended periods of time or if you store an RV for the winter, you can remove the sensors and extend battery life. The included battery life estimate is based upon full time use.
