Tire pressure monitor

Just purchased a TST monitoring system with the flow through valves for my 2014 30DS. It looks like it will not fit on the front tires due to the chrome wheel cover. Has anyone else run in to this? If so how did you solve this issue.

I was thinking that I can check with the local tire shop to see if I can get a shorter valve stem, or worse case cut the wheel cover to make the space needed to fit it on.

Tire pressure monitor

I have the same system. You need to add dully valves to the tires. The valves stems allow the pass thrus to fit on.

Unfortunately it's not inexpensive. To add the new valve stems your tire shop will have to remove and remount each tire. So expect to pay $200. Or more if you rebalance the tires. Having the temp pressure tire monitor is well worth it to me.

Also note. If u have any 800 or 900 MHz wireless devices installed in your coach like a remote control sender or outdoor thermometer it will interfere with the temp sender.

In order to "see" all my senders including the motorcycle trailer I needed to add a signal booster and remove my atomic clock and wireless weather station.

i called TST and they say it's a relatively common problem. they recommend swapping out the flow through sensors for standard sensors onthe front tires. they will exchange them. It sounds easier than changing out the valve stems like what is suggested above.

tire pressure monitor

I have the standard monitors, not the pass thru, and the cap is still hitting the wheel covers. Any ideas?
