I bought a Dill system from Discount Tire, with the valve stem sensors and am very pleased with it.

It measures pressure and temperature, battery life is 7 to 10 years in the sensors, the monitor just plugs into my 12 VDC power jack, very simple to setup, by Discount, very easy to read. For lengths over 40 feet, use external antennae. It is expandable.

Dill systems are well known for their quality, did a lot of research on them. Be careful of the sensors that fasten to your valve stems, they can knock the balance out of the tires, some are too long to and require removal when putting in air.

Every system has their pros and cons. The Dill will measure a long distance before installing the wired antennae. I believe I have $290 into the monitor and $60 to install the sensor valve stems and re-balance the tires.

I bought the TST 507RV and had steel valves and the TPMS installed. I also had them fill the tires with nitrogen. It works great, and I am so glad I got it. Thanks for all the great info and suggestions.

I tell people to buy what you trust, I have the TST 507. I think TPMS should be standard on all campers

I agree, I believe a TPMS should be standard equipment on all RVs, especially after having a brand new tire come apart in less than 100 miles.

"you have to return the censer to the seller to get the battery changed, with TST, you are able to change the battery on your own when one goes bad.

Correct me if I am wrong about the Tireminder system."

You return the batteries. Not the sensors. Of course you can get batteries at WM.

Learn from me here. I have a TST 507rv and it works like a champ right until the wheel simulator flys off. I bought stainless zip ties to hold the simulators on but never put them to use. When the simulator came off it ruined one of my wheel sensors.

Regardless of my failure, I would go with the TST 507 again. That said, I do have a question for those of you with a 507. Do you have any issues with the power plug not staying in the head unit? The charger I got has a tip about 1/2in long but only goes in about half that and will fall out quite easily. Fortunately it holds a charge for several days.

TPMS

No problem with my TST 507rv unit. Had it for three years and it saved my butt MANY times till I finally put good tires on the unit.
Sounds like someone may have bent the plug while it was installed in the monitor. I would plug it in and put a dash of GOOP connecting the two together, tape them together till it dries and don't worry about disconnecting them. I never turn mine off except when the TV is turned off. It lives on the dash along with the GPS, dashcam, tuner, and radar detector.

Today, I finally got around to messing with the TST507rv unit which I purchased months ago. I got all the sensors on the coach to work after reading through the instructions a few times. I have not attached the ones to the jeep yet, put I don't anticipate any additional difficulties.

My next adventure is getting power to all the equipment that will live on the dash. Right now, I will have to power the TST monitor, Patriot braking system, ocasionally a GPS, phone charger and who know what ever new items we can't live without. I am sure theses items do not draw much current, so do you use a splitter off your existing outlet? Or did you add additional power sources directly from the fuse box?

Everything on my dash is hardwired into the fuse panel on the dash in the door jam. Very little power usage, so you really don't need to increase any fuses. Everything does not have to be powered off the same circuit just make sure you use a circuit that turns on and off with the ignition.
