That's the one we have been using for the last 4 years. 1 year on the travel trailer and 3 on the motor home. Have one sensor that has gone bad and have changed the batteries 1 time so far. Will most likely install new ones this spring.

Cross-post, but what the hey...

I recently purchased an EEZTire system and have been experimenting with it. Some comments:
  • The temperature measurement is effectively ambient air temperature plus whatever might be radiated by the wheel. It's ineffective at measuring the temperature of the tire.
  • The "theft prevention" on the non-flow through sensors is ludicrous. It's at best a dust cover, and if one tries to use the wrench to install the sensors, a lot of air is lost in the process.
  • My sensors read at least 2 PGIG lower than my digital tire gauge. I'm still puzzling over which to believe.
Bottom line is that it's better than no TPMS, but wants to be taken with a grain of salt.

I saw your cross post, but replies were talking about temps,... I was looking for feedback on which model to buy. I will use it basically as a warning sensor, not its absolute values. Nothing beats a $200 snap on for accurate pressure readings. I used one for the first time at my local Firestone tire center. Like many things in the RV community, so much is lagging. My 2008 Chevy has a digital display on the dash of all tire pressures. It was probably available even earlier on that and other vehicles.

Yeah, my 2012 Chevy Express cargo van has an excellent TPMS. It served me well when I got a significant puncture on I-81 a couple of years back.

I have the EEZ Tire. Great system. Only difference I change batteries every spring as a week battery can be a PITA.

TST 507 from TST Trucking (https://tsttruck.com/).


Call them to ask them any questions you have pre-sale and you'll see why so many like them.


Their TPMS work and when you call them you get a human answering the phone that is knowledgeable of their products. Rare thing these days.

X2 on TST 507. I had their earlier system on an older TT and it worked great. I upgraded to 507 when it was released as the batteries in sensors could be replaced by user. Very happy. Called them as I needed some new O-rings when changing batteries. They showed up 3 days later no charge. Very knowledgeable and helpful and a great customer service. Spent a lot of time watching temps and pressure when they wee new, but now I rarely look at the display and just trust the alarms.
