That's a nice feature of the TPS 507 sensors.

I use the TireMinder system. Works good with the signal booster on long 5th wheels. The system helped me on a trip with a slow leak, judge the amount of air lost and mileage to drive, was alble to get home.

Any input or thoughts would be appreciated! I'm thinking I'd only need 4 sensors for my TT....also, if anyone can share manual that'd be nice to see how this installs and works...
I also have an 8-sensor TST 507 system. It's shown me low tires twice that I probably wouldn't have noticed (15# low); this could have been very bad news had I not been warned.

I have uploaded the TST-507 manual into the "Library" section here. Enjoy.

I have the TST system with 10 sensors. I have 6 pass through sensors on the motor home and 4 non pass through on the car I tow. In my opinion pass throughs would stick out too far on the car.

I really like the system and it works well. I occasionally have one sensor that will lose communication with the monitor, however if I shut the monitor down and then restart the monitor it will re-establish communication. Not a big problem and may be due to the fact that the battery is about 1yr old and probably needs to be replaced.


I would recommend the TST system. It has warned me about low air pressure on one of my car tires a couple of times.

Hawkshead for me. Nice small monitor, replaceable batteries in the sensors. Easy to install and program.

Thanks for the advice and thoughts! Big thanks for uploading the .pdf, Barry. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have the "rights" in my profile to access documents in the library. Not sure how to get that changed...is it because I'm still new?

Another vote for TST. You can't beat their customer service also.

Have the TST 507, 4 sensors on 5er. One thing I did notice, was that the temperature is very sensitive. The right side of trailer is always warmer than left, due to exhaust from truck. Would think that if a brake was sticking or a bearing was getting hot, the sensor would indicate something was up. May not prevent a sudden blowout, but if something is steadily going wrong, it should indicate. The charge on the receiver also lasts forever!
