Guess I can't since I've not had mine for a year yet.
I'll get back to you in 4 years.

Let the contest begin . After my adventure with the tire over Thanksgiving I definitely want to get a monitor but, after looking at prices for the sensors I am thinking maybe I will start with 4 for the 5ver and add them for the Dually later. After perusing the threads on TPMS's I noticed that some people had add a repeater with the TST's what kind of range do they have? This has me leaning towards the Tire Minder.

67 days beyond original warranty.
They overnighted a replacement sensor as we were traveling. I have only looked at 3-4 different brands but they all look alike, set up is almost identical and some now offer "through the stem" airing. An advantage for some but my tires don't loose air so removing them to check the tire independently is not a feature I need. This leads me to believe there is only one possibly 2 manufacturers, I think it is easy to get a bad set or sensor from any of them.

I originally had a set of TST but they would continually drop off line and replacement were not much better. I sent them back and got a refund.

Hey Turbs you are running just 4 on your 5ver right none on your Tow Vehicle correct? I am looking at Tire Traker's website they have a package deal with 4 sensors for $219. Is this unit expandable like in the future if I want to add more sensors?

I'm also in the process of investing in a TPMS for my TT. However, I'm a little confused as I haven't seen anybody going with the internal sensors (ex. TST 507 Internal). Seems, at least to me, that they are the way to go, - nothing mounted externally. My logic here is that to go with the external ones I need to change my rubber valve stems to metal ones, hence taking the tires off the rims to do so. Therefore, if I have to do this, may as well go with the internal sensors(?) Am I missing something here? Any advice/suggestions would be most welcome.

I have the TST system and run it with rubber valve stems. No problems. When I eventually get new tires I will switch to metal valve stems.

My truck already has tpms so no need too add them.

Tire traker has the ability to monitor from 4 to 22 sensors .

Start with 4 and add sensors as needed.

Yesterday I took the sensors off my 5th wheel and installed them on my snowmobile trailer for the season.

I believe the sensor is part of the tpms sensor.

Automotive ones are mostly that way.
