TireTech On, DOES have "Anti-Theft". It is just different than TST. I'm sure the TST monitoring system is good, but so is TireTech. In a nut shell the idea is to get an alert when there is a problem and they both do that.

I am not promoting either system; just saying what works for me. Will say there is a big difference in price for the system and the senors.

Ok, so those of you will all the bells & whistles on your dash, like the 507, gps, bully dog & phone charger. How are you plugging all this in. With today's modern age of electronics my GT only has one plug in at the console... Go figure...

I noticed the 507 has a plug in that consumes the entire outlet. Is there a USB conversion out there?

TPMS I have battery is good for 30 days on a charge. GPS built into the radio, charge phone when needed, MBS has two charge ports at console. Also use ports in coach when needed. Lots of ways to skin a cat .

And you could use one of these.

I had the TireMinder (which is the same as the TireTech) for 3 years, I cussed the dang thing on every trip and it would lose the signal. Also you have to fiddle with pushing buttons while drive if you want to check PSI/Temp. Now I have TST thus far it has been flawless. The monitor automatically scrolls through all the tires, no more fiddling with button. .

Ok got the 507RV & love it. It easy to set up & use. The dealer air all my tires before purchase & I ha want needed to until now. The dual outside tire is very difficult to get access to. What type gauge & air chuck are you guys using?? Thanks

Glad you like the 507 - got it, love it. I bought a digital air gauge for a couple of reasons. Got it at Walmart. Now to the air chuck. Only one to get IMO a straight lock on chuck. I got this one - CTA Tools 1930 Straight Lock-On Air Chuck. I have a fairly good compressor but it takes a couple of minutes to air up a soft tire. With this chuck I simply set the compressor auto off (notoriously inaccurate) and then attach this chuck. If you've ever had to add much air - it is awful sitting there holding on air chuck.

Milton S506 Dual Head Inflator Gauge with 12" Air Hose https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002SRL20..._-qzewb8VXDSE8

This one has been perfect for me. Easy to get the inside. You can use it with or without air hooked up.

Just read my post..😃😃😃😃 gotta love the spell check...

I'll have to give one of those a try. I don't have the cleanse to get my current air connection in.

Thanks

Ok, just took an extended trip with the TST507RV. I was not that impressed. It worked fine for short local runs etc however out on the road I would loose signal to certain sensors for hours. Sometimes they would come back after a few hours or if I stopped they would come back. If you haven't experienced this, if you loose a sensor signal it give you a little beep every time the unit cycles through to that sensor. The little beep drives you crazy until you turn the system off which defeats the purpose of the unit.
Has anyone experienced this? I haven't called TPMS yet or troubleshoot the system as we just returned.
