I also have the TST tire monitors sold by great RV products with good results over 1 year I would like to know how to get free batteries every year

I also learned that the all metal valve stems are required not the high pressure valve stems they have

I purchased a set of 507 and it might be under the tree! I had a thread with the link on the price.

Tst has stated that they will work on high pressure stems as long as there not over 11/4" long, I have them on now for a bout a year. I will be switching to full metal in the spring. I have to thank Turbs for the model I needed for my rims. My tire guy ordered the wrong ones and wouldn't fit. They have like 100 different sizes.
Also the flow through are a little heavier then the screw on type......

So I'm thinking it's time to invest in a good TPMS. Let's assume that I know nothing about TPMS systems. Which is nearly 100% true. It seems like people really like the TST 507 model. What is the advantage of flow-through versus no flow sensors--the ability to put air in your tires without removing them? Do you remove the valve core for this install? Are all the sensors mounted on the valve stems, or are there other systems where the sensors mount inside the rim, like on my truck and car? Pros and cons of each type? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have the TST 507 with the flow thru valves that I can change the batteries.
I have had them on for about 2 years and it has worked flawlessly and gives me a better feeling of confidence while driving the highway at 60-65 mph.


It is always telling you psi and tire temperatures and if you set the high and low alarm properly you will know quickly if something is happening and you need to pull over.
So with 35,000 miles in 2 years on my Georgetown I think it is a needed accessory that everyone needs.


Merry Christmas.

Thank you Iggy for the info.

Next question: has anyone used the 507 system to monitor multiple trailers? If I buy the 507 system and 8 sensors, can I use 4 on my camper and 4 on my car trailer? Can the system be set up for two different trailers? Obviously I can only tow one at a time, so theoretically I could just move the sensors from one trailer to the other, but that would kinda suck. Its also worth noting that the tires on the car trailer and camper are different sizes, weight ratings, and therefore pressures. Any thoughts? TIA.

The 507 has the ability to monitor 6 separate axles ( assumes tires on an axle are identical) so not problem having 2 axles on one trailer and two on the other programmed in. You will just get no reading on the sensors of the trailer you are not using.

And you can set the pressures for the 2 different sets of axles differently? That would be sweet! Ironically, the car trailer tires have always seemed to give me more issues than the camper tires have, but I don't want to take any chances with the new camper. Having it for the car trailer will just be gravy!

Yes you can set each axle , but you can not have different settings on the same axle.
