TPMS

We just purchased a 2020 Rockwood Ultra Lite 2608BS. We are going on our first trip tomorrow.
any ways a TPMS came with the rig ,TST-507-D-C opened the package to set up only to find that the tire sensors do not come in the package! why didn't
they include the sensors? $$$
where is the best place to buy sensors?

X2, are you sure the sensors are not already installed?


This link to TST will show their different sensors, as you may be overlooking them on your tire valve stem.

That model # is just the display. As said, the sensors may be internal like a car. Which, IMHO, is the preferred choice.

I will check to see if the sensors are in the tires,
the tires are nitrogen filled!

Mine are 73% Nitrogen. Sorry...I couldn't resist.

I don't have TPMS, but like the others...maybe sensors are already in tires.

Turn on the display it may have already been set up. If nothing then try the pairing procedure in the manual on one wheel. . Note it can take a few minutes for the first readings to show up as unless there is a change in T/P they only update periodically.

Uhhh, usually not all the way. I know what you are reading on the sticker, but it's kind of a marketing misnomer. Usually 90 to 95% nitrogen....if they purged the tire. If not it may be less.

Just regular air that you breathe or is in most tires is already 78% nitogen.......so technically most all tires are nitrogen filled. Lol

Your tires are nitrogen deficient. Mine are 78.09% nitrogen.

I use "Nitrogen Lite" less filling than regular N2.
