TST 507 Great system at a super price. I use a digital PSI gauge and my TST is +- 1psi. My monitor is 50 ft. from the farthest sensor. I've never had a problem picking up the signal. I've had the system about 10 months, about 10,000 miles, no problems. I wish I could say the same for my tires, my 5er eats them up. But that's another story. Can't go wrong with the TST 507 system.

Rather than complete removing the sensors would it serve the same purpose (preserving battery) by just unscrewing them enough to shut them off?

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Don't use the flow through mainly because they do protrude too far.

yes, ..... but if you have no worry of them being stolen, you can always remove the spinning shell from the units and then won't need to use that little wrench, ..... when I called the company in Ga., the man I talked with said he uses his that way, ... makes a smaller package and is easier to remove for adding air or for saving battery life, ...... I would also suggest, that when/if you do remove them, you should replace the original small plastic caps to keep the stems clean until you're ready to put the sensors back on,.....

Had the TST system now for 3 years it reads plus or minus, 2 degrees nothing to worry about. I took my sensors off and installed all new batteries put it in my box OC made for me which holds the 4 sensors and extra batteries. Well I decided to take a trip to Ohio to see Youroo and do some hunting and buying some farm raised cattle meat to bring home the best I have ever tasted. Well anyway on the trip my first sensor dropped out. So I stopped at a rest stop and replaced the battery, well with in 50 miles it dropped out again. So I unscrewed it and it started to read again. This time after 350 miles it did the same thing, so I just unscrewed it and re screwed it on Bingo it worked again. I had to do this the rest of my trip. I called TST and they said send them the sensor they think the control board had corroded. I sent it in to them and haven't heard back yet. VERY NICE people. I told them I will not drive without them on and reading. Great CS and company IMO.... PS also I had a sensor that was leaking last year, called them and told them that I was leaving in two days, they sent me a new one over night, can't beat that CS with a big stick....

The TT is parked in building on my property so not worried about theft. I've already removed the "locking" shell. Makes them even smaller.
