Not sure what happened to Dan @ TST, maybe he did not get my email.

The alarm goes off on low pressure when the sensor is removed but doesn't sound off if signal is lost. Dan said the time is not 1 hr instead it is 20 minutes when the signal is lost. He also mentioned they will be addressing that issue in their next release.

I don't think it ought to set off alarm when signal loss but maybe flashing numbers to let you know the signal was loss then after so many cycles/minutes it would warn you.

Bottom line is it will let me know if there really is a problem with loss of air or a flat, so I am pretty okay with the system. It isn't for NASA, it just keeps track of the air pressure in my RV tires. A couple of pounds difference doesn't change what it does, you will still know if the pressure starts dropping or the temperature is excessive in time to stop. Now that I know about it, I don't worry.
I'm fine with couple of pounds difference and I don't know the tire gauge or TST or both.

If this is how TST handles customer service, I think I will be looking into other systems. I have never used a TPMS in the 20 years I towed a TT, but I am a little bit more concerned about my 5th's tire pressures given the weight of the coach.

Don't knock their customer service, just yet. I had great customer assistance with them when I first got my system and they exchanged the flow through sensors I order, that would not fit, with the regular sensors with NO problems.
And have never had a problem with the system, unlike the other system I had for a few months and threw away.

I pulled TT also that belonged to my parents and in-laws also without a TPMS, but they didn't have them way back when. Now I wouldn't think of running without them.

Trying to comprehend all this.

New Dually doesn't have the built in TMS that the 3/4 ton did. So, I was considering getting the TMS above, with 10 sensors, for truck and trailer when I get it.

BUT........

What happens when I disconnect from the TT and just want to see TPMS data from truck only?????

We had a fabulous customer service experience. I called them at 10:30pm when we were having problems with our sensors. The following day they sent us 2 new sensors. We were treated well on the phone too. We called 770-889-9102.

You should just see blanks where the trailers TST were. As far as being off, it plainly states 1 or 2 degrees plus or minus. I also agree this is not NASA. If your sensor quits reading it will show ZERO. Never timed mine but normally takes around 8 mins to start reading or so. This has been my experience. IMO TST has the best CS. Never had a problem with calling the company. TST is a great company IMO... Also found out that receptionist can answer most questions even taught me to set it up. Call and ask for Mike.
