Some go hardwired and some portable. Went portable for a few reasons. Didn't want to void TT warranty (would be installing it myself), wanted to also have my power cord protected, if hardwired inside TT a lightening strike would travel into TT. And a few other reasons... Lifetime warranty is a big plus ..

Are the EEZ and TireTech as shown on Amazon as good as TST or Tireminder? They are a cheaper price. And do I need the flow thru or are the capped ones better?

Looks like the tiretech are identical to the tire minders. The eez are similar to the TST but the monitor that I saw was slightly different. IMO. Go with the TST with booster from Vulcan tire 288.00 is not a bad price. .caps or flow thru? I went with 3/4 inch steel valve stems and the caps. The flow thru are convenient, but would stick out too far for comfort on my rims. ...

x2 on the TST sensors and the EMS. We have the hardwired Progressive 50 amp, has given us a lot of piece of mind when plugged in.

Our TST system (ordered directly from the mfg) is also awesome, we went with flexible stems that are riveted to the axel- then they don't move around. we ordered 6 sensors for our system - but plan to buy 4 more with the repeater when we get a toad. the monitor can be programmed to see all of them. We haven't had any pressure issues, but it's sure nice to know they are all OK when we are driving.

Just noticed you are putting them on a motor home. . On Vulcan tire Web site you can pick what application you have and it runs you through what they recommend. ..I don't want to steer you in the wrong direction. ...

On the TST 507 RV, is the size difference on the flow through vrs the non flow through noticeable? In reading some of the posts with the factory valve stems wondering if the non-flow through would be small enough not causing so much of an issue.

I don't mind upgrading valve stems just don't have time before our Fl trip but would like the tire monitor peace of mind...

While the weight difference is negligible, the flow through is slightly longer to allow for the valve stem. I've not heard of anyone in the many posts speak of physical failures other than those related to the internal device. In those cases, TST was quick to provide a replacement. The big difference between the two is that the non-flow-through has to be removed to add air to the tire. If you use the Allen screw to keep it on, then you've got to find the Allen wrench and unscrew it before removing it. IMHO this alone gives the flow-through the clear advantage.

I think the flow through would be very convenient, but on my rims they would stick out too far. Very happy with the cap style. My TST don't use a Allen wrench, but there's a special tool to remove them..so I still have to track down the tool.

If we did it again I would probably get flow-thru - using the tool to take them off is somewhat of a pain......
