ADOR, we went with TST 507 internal mounted on bands around the drop center of the wheel on our Sunseeker 3010. We also put the same on the tow dolly and a pair of cap sensors for the wheels on the ground of the toad. Discount tire $16 per wheel to unstall. Had it done this past Thursday and works great. Only hitch is that the dolly tires are 60psi and toad is 35 which makes setting the alarm parameters a little challenging, but I think I can change the dolly positions on the monitor and leave yge toad as the trailer to get them seperated. Great system. Friendly sales staff at TST.

The internal TPMS has some good features, among them is you don't have to worry about them being stolen or metal stems. On my screw on sensors I can easily change the batteries. I took the locks off my sensors, less weight. But the big thing for me is when the tires are balanced and rotated I don't have to recalibrate the sensors because the sensors will be in the wrong spot on the screen. My brain doesn't function like it use to, I try to keep it as simple as I can (KISS), is what I try at all times to follow

Gidyupgo, sorry for asking. I'm fairly new to the Class C world.


1. What does "mounted on bands around the drop center of the wheel "?
2. What size valve stem did you end up getting for the front, inner and outer rear tires (1, 2 or 3 inches)?
3. Did you need extenders (straight, 48 or 90 degree angle) to any of the tires?


Can you please post the configuration you installed? It may also help other Class C owners here in the forum. Thanks.

No problem at all ADOR. They are a large worm gear band clamp that goes around the circumference of the wheel. Like a hose clamp, "supersized". The sensor bodies go into brackets that the band runs through. This does not disturb the factory valve stems which to my surprise and joy, came with extensions from Sunseeker.

Following up from my 4/9 post RE: "ADOR, we went with TST 507 internal mounted on bands around the drop center of the wheel on our Sunseeker 3010. We also put the same on the tow dolly and a pair of cap sensors for the wheels on the ground of the toad. ....

>>>> This worked. On the monitor, the pressure / temp alarm is set by axle so axle 1 = ft tires, axle 2 = rear tires, axle 3 = dolly tires and axle 4 (which is the trailer on the monitor)= screw on cap sensors on the TOAD.
4 Different sets of high/low alarm settings and a glance at the monitor as it cycles through each shows individual tire press / temp. Happy, Happy, Happy...

I received my Strap mounted TST 507 last week. Just deciding on what brand metal or brass stem valve to get for all tires.

Good going! My wife and I are on the road over-nighting at a Walmart. We too have the TST 507 and wouldn't tow without it. More than once it has saved us from possible disaster. Good choice!
