I don't have metal valve stems on my C/C, at least I don't think I do, so Ducky do you think the 507 flow through is better than the regular 507 TST. Is it hard to take the regular 507 off when you air up the tire, I do rub the curb every so often. Need some advice

You should not mount external sensors on rubber valve stems.
Soooo, when you have the tire shop put metal stems in(aka heavy duty),
have them use 30mm shorties and you will not hit the sensor. That would be bad.

I have a TST system. It has not been problem free but I will say the people at TST will bend over backwards to make you a happy customer..That goes a long ways in my book.

Would you mind sharing some of your issues... it might help us prevent a problem.
Thank you!

Disagree and so do the pros at TST (Trucking System Technology |TST Trucking Systems) I specifically asked Mike Benson (the VP) and he said there are NO issues mounting their TPMS on rubber valve stems

My unit is a 507. I'm on the third monitor, and have had a couple sensors replaced. My last monitor would not accept the sensors when I went to program it. Another one had a button fall off. The sensors just quit working. I have since purchased a booster that I haven't tried yet to help with the signal from the sensors, hopefully this will fix my problems. I know of several others that have had very good luck, so maybe it's just me. They are always willing to take a call or let me send it back for repairs/replacement. Fast turn around time. I would buy from them just based on the great service.

The recommendation I made was derived from info I received from
a higher source. Sooooo, in the interest of accuracy, I sent an e-mail
to that individual and referenced your statement. When I receive a reply
I will post the response.

Regardless of TST's response, I stand by my post as it was a recommendation
to a specific individual in response to a specific request.
Therefore it really does not matter whether you can or cannot mount the sensors on rubber stems it's whether you should or should not within the narrow scope of the specific situation I responded to.

As Promised... Here is a quote from the head Pro in response
to my inquiry;
"I do believe that in the short term, they will be fine on a rubber valve stem
that is in good condition but believe there is still always a risk that the
additional weight will create a vibration that MAY cause the valve stem to
prematurely wear. I have used the sensors on new rubber valve stems for a
period of 14 months in which the trailer they were on was towed some 6000 -
7000 miles. The valve stems still appeared to be ok but I did not get an
opportunity to inspect them closely at the time they were swapped out.
The length of the valve stem may also be a factor."

He also mentioned that they are discussing the issue so there may be some
additional feedback. So in conclusion, can you put the 507 flow thru sensors
on rubber valve stems? Sure you can. But should you? I'm still
thinking not. FYI, I never asked about the cap sensors which are heavier.

I was thinking about the internal TPMS but I now I heard that the Goodyear G614 RST tires I want to put on camper with all that steel in the tires might be hard on a signal. So since I have to break the tires down anyway to install metal stems I may as well save some money and go with the screw on type. I plan to buy a set at the end of the month

Thanks Ducky
