Although it does not tie into my phone, we really like this one. It's solar powered (not the transmitters). Been using it for a year now. It works great!

Cboss, so reviews on site arent really true. What type of travel trailer do you have?

Just a reminder, another Amazon Prime Day is coming on Oct 11-12th. I got a TST507 on the last one and saved a hundred dollars.

You can see my TT in my Sig. It's 34 ft long.
As far as reviews: Looks to me to be 70% great and 5% bad, but you will almost never get 100% positive.
I can only say we have had good luck with this TPMS without having to spend big bucks.
We have had Minder products in the past and they were great also.

TST has worked well for me on several rigs, year after year.

Have had the TST 507 on our rigs for 10 years now. Upgraded to the new color monitor and have added sensors for the truck. Has saved us several times. (As in paid for itself several times.)

Another for the TST.

Saved us twice last year when a tire separated and a valve stem went.

With the monitor in place both were non events overall.

Cboss i was looking at that one. Youre right. Most reviews are good. The price looks very affordable.

I would say TST is the best, followed by Tire Minder. I have Tire Minder.

Probably the only complain I could have is it is a little dim, but if you push the middle button it lights up. Also, the dim is really no issue as the alarms will go off if anything is going wrong.
Probably my favorite thing is the solar. I stuck it to the windshield near the rear view mirror and it stays charged.

Cboss another question. It says for tires that hold 70 psi or less. In you experience has your tires ever read more than 70. And has it alerted you when it hets past 70. Traveling in the summer, tires can expand while driving

I have the same system on my Load Range D tires inflated to 65 PSI. The range limit specified is for the low pressure alarm (and I am not sure what the low pressure alarm setting is). It has never alarmed on high pressure for me and I have ran on the interstate in over 100 degree temps. I have received 1 low pressure alarm during normal use, it was pulling out of a campground and I stopped at the entrance parking lot and reinflated to get home, but I can't remember what the pressure was. Had a nail in the tire.

X2. I keep mine at 65 psi also, never had an alarm. I've never had a low alarm so fay, but I've tested it by removing a sensor.

I use the TST 507 setup. It came with my trailer but found that two of the internal band style sensors started losing battery charge after 3 years (based on build dates). TST says they last 4-5 years so I replaced them with cap sensors when I replaced my tires. Even grabbed an extra on for the spare

I leave the hi temp alarm set to 158 degrees (the default) and the hi pressure alarm to 25% over the cold pressure, which for me is 65 psi so hi pressure is 82 psi. Low pressure alarm is 60 psi

In all my travel trailer miles (25k so far) I never hit hi temp alarm, even when towing loaded during heat waves such as in September in the western states. I do get low pressure alarms often but mostly when its cold in the mornings and if the tires have not come back up to near normal in 10-20 miles I will check on them and maybe add some air.

Overall I like the TST system. I use my phone for navigation so I would rather not have one tied to my phone. The monitor on the dash works great.

TST507 fan here. The color monitor is small enough to be located in a convenient place. Saved our bacon this spring when it alerted us to a low pressure situation on one of our Castle Rocks. Filled it to the proper pressure and it was okay until we returned home and replaced all 4 with Goodyear Endurance.

One of the nice things about the TST507 TPMS is that they include a "repeater" if your rig is very long.

Another vote for the TST TPMS.

I've had one configuration or another of it since day 1 (small B&W monitor) to the new and improved V2 color monitor and it has worked flawlessly.

I don't even use my tire pressure gauge anymore... I simply turn on the TPMS monitor in advance of us heading out and can instantly see what all tire pressures are at a glance.

I have the Tire Minder I10 on my motorhome. It saved me on a trip to Pennsylvania last week. I had a slow leak on one of my valve stem extensions. I was able to correct it before destroying a tire.

Best TPMS

I suggest you compare warranty length as most TPMS (external screw on to metal stems type) are essentially the same. There is a slight difference in final pricing.
