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...
Very happy with ours, works accurately & wouldn't tow a camper without this product!

I purchased the TST with 4 sensors with replaceable batteries. $200.15, free shipping. Best price I found. You can choose your preferred system and type of sensors. I have attached the link to the website. I like it. I am seeing some interesting data though and will discuss the subject in another thread.

You probably need to call TST and ask them about that. I can tell you that the 507 system is newer (and sensors are not compatible between the two). The 507 sensors have replaceable batteries expected to last about a year of continuous use. The 510 batteries are not replaceable (you have to return the sensors to them) but are expected to last for 5 years.

TST 507 as well. And yes they are sensitive, when driving as the sun changes which side of the trailer it is on the tires on the sun side will show a temp and pressure increase. Only issue I have had is once in awhile one sensor will take a bit of a nap and cause an alarm for a few minutes (gotta look into that).

Apologies for posting too early. I wasn't aware that uploaded files are not immediately available. It is available now. (I hope that was the only reason you couldn't see it.)

These can be very valuable, if the user actually understands the information they provide, and what they do not do: notably, they do not let you know of a catastrophic tire failure being imminent. They are great for inflation issues, which for trailer tires, isn't the biggest problem.

A leaking tire can lead to a catastrophic failure. Agree they are useless if it is a blowout caused by a road hazard. Proper inflation, IMO is a big problem on trailers. Don't know what you are wanting.

We don't have enough facts to know about the OP's case, but in general, I disagree with you.

It may well have been that the pressure in this tire was low (slow to medium leak), which caused it to heat and blow out. A TPMS would have told him about that.

It may well have been that some large amount of the damage to the RV was caused by continuing to drive with that blown tire for a few seconds longer than he would have had a TPMS told him that it had lost pressure suddenly.

The OP's 1st post doesn't state any facts about damage.

What is your disagreement and with what?
