X5 on the TST 507 unit. You couldn't ask for a better unit and the folks at TST are like family. Really easy to work with AND they will keep you in replacement seals, screws and 0 rings FOR FREE!! Just give them a call when you need stuff.

Those who are using the TST 507, are more using the flow thru or non flow thru sensor. Thx, Ben

Non flow thur. When I got my 507 I could not afford to put metal stems in, it was twenty bucks to break each tire down.

Unless you have special high pressure stems you have zero reserve in the standard "snap-in" rubber valves which are rated for 65 psi MAX.

I have heard of rubber stem failure with the addition of TPM sensors.

The site team has removed several posts that were extremely off-topic to the purpose of this thread. Please keep posts/advice pertained to the subject matter of TPMS systems.

Thank You...and now back to your regularly scheduled program.

I guess my sensors are just floating around somewhere, I run 60lbs in front truck tires and 80lbs in rear tires with rubber stems. I have over 75000 miles on Silverado 3500. On my Cedar Creek I have metal stems in them, I run 110lbs in them. On my first Cedar Creek I had rubber stems and I ran 80lbs in them. I never had a problem, I must have put at least 20000 miles on that camper. On that camper I ran nitrogen and never put any air in camper tires. But then again I don't know much, well just from experience

110 psi cold? What size & Load Range? Would think LR-F is way overkill or you are way over GAWR capacity and possibly over GVWR too

I don't think I will overload the camper as I can load 4,000lbs. The only way my camper is ever going to be weighed is if someone steals it and they weigh it.
