While at this years FROG Rally I upgraded from the "regular" sensors to the flow thru version. The "regular" sensors were a total pain to remove, especially with the security wrench, on our GTS. The wheel simulators, ie hubcaps, made reaching them awkward to say the least. I prefer the flow thru version for the ease of adding air and removing them while in storage. I wouldn't even consider going back to the "regular" sensors.

Price wise both systems were the same price for six sensors at the Rally. The odd part was it was cheaper to upgrade by buying a whole new system than just buying six sensors. So my next door neighbor got a good deal on my old system for his TT. His valve stems are easy to reach so they work fine on it.

Does anyone have experience with the internal sensors? Pros/Cons?

I took the locks off mine, I am going to put the metal stems on soon when I buy more tires. Just wondering which is best, the high pressure valve stems or the metal valve stems? I had a leaking valve stem on my last trip and the tire man installed a high pressure valve stem.

The tire man also torqued the lug nuts, I think that was the first time I had seen anyone do that

But before I do, I was wondering how many people have chosen the FT (flow through) sensors. I am not thinking that this would be something that is needed but the kit with the FT sensors is the same price as the one without, so I thought I would ask
Tom,

I think it depends on your RV. We used the non Flow-Through when we had a 5er (like emm-dee, I was concerned about weight on the rubber valve stem.) Now if you have metal valve stems this issue goes away.

On our Coach we have these massive metal valve stems so I went with the Flow through sensors. I will say this if you choose flow through sensors: make sure they are tightened down when you install them or you will wake up the next day with a flat tire. Don't ask me how I know

Fitment seems to be the biggest issue. You need to give TST a call to see if they will work for you. I'd prefer internal but it wouldn't work on our dual rear wheels....
