The repeater is an option but I am well within the regular distance limits. Hopefully it corrects itself....:-)

After initial set-up and a lot of driveway monitoring, I had my system out for the weekend for the first time. It played faultlessly!

Lotsa' peace-of-mind comes along with this purchase, and I'll be getting a couple more sensors for the truck's rears, as well.

I'm now really happy I spent the money for what I thought would be "just a luxury".

We installed ours and have been watching them for the past week or so to see if they are holding pressure and temp before trip next week.

That's a very-good idea, as I discovered a slow leak (didn't have the sensor tightened enough) a week prior to the first outing with them.

Lots easier to be at the end of your own compressor's hose when you find out!

Temperature will vary with the exposure to the sun.

Enjoy the peace-of-mind that comes along with these!

I made sure mine were on tight but not over tight. I just replaced my 5 bias ply Trail Express crap for 5 new Kumho 857 Radials and wanted to make sure they were sealed on the rims properly before setting out on vacation.

The best thing you can do to ensure sealed beads is to have your tire guy dis-mount the old tires for you, and take the rims home.

Then, use a fine ScotchBrite (or similar) and soapy water on the beads to get them spotless. This also gives you some time to clean the rest of the rim up, too, including the inside and hub-mating surface. Paint is optional.

You now also have the opportunity to get QUALITY steel stems and install them to specs, even using some sealant if you wish. Use sealant that won't later "flow" into your stems, however, as the sensors will clog if it gets into them. My tire guy used "imported" steel stems, and I had problems getting my TPMS sensors to screw on far enough (see Post #5 above). Uggh! Just a head's up!

Clean beads will increase the chances of no leaks.

I couldn't find a steel stem that would work on the rims that come with the new Surveyor. I ended up with the high pressure stems. Had them install the high pressure valve stems, screw on the flow thru sensor, then balance the tire. I'm in the "holding" period right now making sure there are no leaks before we head out. Been 2 days and it looks like we are good to go.

Just completed a 1600 mile trip with my 507's installed. Major peace of mind knowing at a glance what's really going on back there. I'll never be without them again!

What is the difference in the 507 and the 510 systems? I plan on ordering w/ 8 sensors to cover the truck and trailer.

A call to them might be the best place for an answer to that question.

Though I found Elizabeth to be quite knowledgeable, if she can't answer your questions, she has someone there that can.
