Tire Pressure Monitoring System

If you've installed a TPMS please let me know what model you have and if it has any pros/cons.

I bought the Truck System Technologies model #TM-507SG and its a piece of garbage. Made it about 200 miles down the road and two of the sensors started leaking air! (2psi/10miles). So four stops later I'm at the tire shop kinda hoping I picked up a nail or something, but nope, it was the stupid TPMS I paid $385 for!

Anyways, I still want the ease of mind knowing the tire pressure is safe when going 70mph, so I want to replace this one. Any suggestions?

TST 507 with the flow thru sensor on all our coach and toad tires. Been using a TST 507 now for over 5 years with zip problems.

My guess is you did not tighten the sensor on to the valve stem. Don't ask me how I know this

Finally, give TST a call - they have really GOOD customer service and back their product 100% If you happen to have a defective sensor (hard to believe 2 are defective) they will replace them for you.


RE: 70MPH. You do know that no trailer tire is rated for over 65MPH? When we pulled a 5th wheel, we kept the speed to 63MPH or lower.

I have the TST 507RV (non-flow through sensors) and it works flawlessly.

TST 507 Flow through. Only problem dropped sensor. Bought signal extender and it fixed the problem. Works great now.

X2 with great customer service with the TST 507 RV. I have the flow thru and no problems so far. Like mentioned it may be just a thing of tightening the sensor. in any case give them a call they will help you out

If you have rubber valve stems, you cannot use the flow thru sensors - you will not get a good seal. I made the same mistake, called TST and they exchanged them for me.

We use the TST 507RV system. Have had only one problem with one of the sensors going bad.

We were traveling out of state at the time. Called TST customer service and they helped me determine that the sensor had gone bad. They shipped me a new sensor to the campground where we were staying and included a label for me to return the bad sensor.

All has been good since. Sorry for your problem, but you should definitely give them a call.

Phone: 770-889-9102

Happy travels!

TST 507RV here as well. Never had an air leak and the system works great after three summers and many thousands of miles towing.

X's 2 it is the best system out on the market, and great customer service. If you are using rubber stems that could be the problem, to much flex, If you installed metal bolt in then either it wasn't tight enough or just two bad sensors. I had one leak the seal on the brass part split, they replaced it. got it over night, can't beat that...
