Tire Pressure Monitor system 507 TPMS

This has been talked about on the forum and I have been watching the prices. RVWHOLESALERS has it on sale this week for $265 with free shipping! Best price I have seen and gets good reviews on this site and others!

RVWholesalers.com RV Parts and Accessories¬*,¬*RVW Tow Center¬*,¬*Tire Pressure Monitoring¬*,¬*507 Tire Pressure Monitoring System w/ 6 Flow-Thro

The 507 TPMS reports PSI and tire temperature in real time, while offering the user the ability to custom program high and low PSI settings on up to 4 axles. The 507RV system is accurate within 1.5 +/- PSI, and our systems are accurate within +/- 1 degree Fahrenheit of the actual air temperature within your tires. The system comes with two installation wrenches, SIX SENSORS, a short antenna, a dashboard mounting bracket, a suction cup bracket, a cigarette charger, a hardwire kit, a detailed userís manual, and the on board monitor display. System comes with a 2 year warranty.

For those who have the 507 system with the flow through sensors-

1. how do you like the system?
2. do the sensors have user replaceable batteries?
3. any pros or cons with the system?

Thanks.
Tom

The only issue I can see is that they stick out beyond the rim and could be damaged by curbs if you are not careful.

I am just very careful when cornering which is not a bad idea anyway.

TST TPMS

We have TST's system and love it. We have 12 sensors so that the TV & RV & spares are monitored. Didn't make sense to monitor just the RV tires. We added the spares after a couple years, don't want to be needing a spare to find it low on pressure for sure. BTW we use only N2 in our tires & trail air hitch. Don't have to re service the tires often because of it.

Did you need to get a booster for the system to operate properly ?

Well- since I posted on topic inquiring about the TST system because I was in the process of thinking about purchasing one, I received one as a Christmas gift from my children. So, since I am replacing a Pressure Pro system, if anyone is interested in purchasing a used Pressure Pro TPMS, please PM me.
Thanks.
Tom

I'll try and give you my own opinion:
1) The system is great when it works, I have problems with both the "O" rings and the Schrader valves. The "O" rings leak and causes corrosion, turn green on the contacts. They seem to read then next time quit and I have to loosen up the tire schrader valve to make it work again and clean the battery area.
2) yes the battery is replaceable they say one year I have found that I had to replace 3 with in 8 months.
3) Is the flow through better NO, Talked to TST every time they always ask if I tried to add air first. That is what they are made for. They told me to to unscrew the valve stem til I here air then tighten to shut it off and reinstall.

The customer service is great nothing better, and probably not the same with all I can't make that call. Would I buy it again yes, but not the flow through system. As far as picking the signal up I can easily with my truck at the end of the drive way 15' from the trailer and pick them up. As far as hitting curbs, If I'm that close to a curb I'm going to hit it anyway. But Once again I will say you can not find better Customer service from a company.

Just got this system for Christmas myself. Installed it today. Very easy to program and it seems to work well. Only problem is with the type valves that are installed on my two front tires. The sensors won't screw onto them. I ordered some extensions for them hope that works.
