The FAQ on TST webpage and the manual have conflicting information on battery life.

From the FAQ 507 batteries are intended to be changed approximately every 10-12 months then at the bottom of the FAQ it says a year and the manual says every two years.

Here a link to the FAQ FAQ -

Here is a link to the manual on TST site.http://tsttruck.com/wp-content/uploa...ser-manual.pdf

Edit - The difference is that the newer sensors read every 2 minutes with a 10 to 12 months battery life and the older sensors read every 5 minutes and have a 2 year battery life like the manual says.

Any way to tell the difference between old and new sensors?

Mine continually cycles and it might take 2 minutes, but sure not 5 minutes. Had it for 3 yrs and with both the non flow thru and the flow thru and they both continually cycle.

With the TST 507 I installed this afternoon, it takes ~22.7 seconds to flash through details of 4 trailer tires. I don't know if it senses new/changed info. that often, but the temp/pressure/tire position info. changed in that period.

Mr. Dan, I believe the TST booklet says they report temps and pressures every 2 to 5 minutes depending on whether you have older or newer sending units. I believe this saves battery life by not sending every few seconds. TST also states that any quick change in the tire pressure or temperature is reported to the monitor immediately so you will know something is amiss. Check the link of 5pickers post.

That's cool. I wasn't trying to validate a booklet or a web link. I was running a stopwatch on the cycling of display info.

I found the reference to 2 minutes and I found another reference on the website to 5 minutes. Looks like they need to update the manual and website to the correct info.

Edit Again. That is a recent change to the sensors and the older models do send every 5 minutes and the newer ones every 2 minutes.
CWSWine......

The 507TST can read up to 22 (twenty-two) wheels. 22 wheels may really take 5 minutes. I run 8 tires. 4 on the vehicle and 4 on the trailer. these take less than 2 minutes. If I 'drop' the trailer (push 'MODE and -' at the same time), it takes less than 1 minute to cycle through 4 tires on the truck......

Exactly! I didn't know reporting was every 5 minutes until I read these posts. But I did know that if I unscrew one of the sensors so I can add air, the unit screamed almost immediately. That is all I need it to do for me to feel comfortable. I also like that the display cycles quickly through the tires as well. The DW and I wouldn't leave the storage area without them on the TT tires.

But it also states that loss of air it will immediately send a signal.

Here is the link http://tsttruck.com/wp-content/uploa...ser-manual.pdf
Time the revolutions, it is the best system a comsumer could buy with the best CS from any manufactor. Good luck in your choice....
