TST 507

Where is the best place to buy a TST 507 tire monitoring system with a color monitor? Also do I need a signal booster? I tow a 39’ fifth wheel. Are the sensors that mount inside the tire/valve stem better?

I can't tell you where to buy a TST-507 tpms but would suggest you just google it and see what you can find. As far as the tire sensors keep in mind the batteries in them last about 2 years. The valve stem caps and flow through sensors the batteries can be replaced but the internal sensors batteries are not replaceable. Meaning you will be buying replacement sensors every couple of years and I think they cost some where in the neighborhood of 80 bucks per plus the cost to have the tires broke down to install them. I have a camper with dual axles and need to replace the batteries on my flow through sensors this year and including 4 batteries and the replacement battery cover seals I have about 30 bucks total in it. Just my thoughts on this this matter, good luck.

I have the type that mount on the valve stem; for ease of changing batteries. That approach does require the installation of metal valve stems.

We have a 33' fifth wheel; and no booster is required.

Next time, buy o-rings and the batteries online. Way cheaper. I bought a big bag of o-rings that will last me a long time.

EDIT: just realized you have the flow through sensors. I have the screw on ones. Not sure they are the same size.

I bought mine here:

I have the cap sensors and took the security device off so they are easy to take on and off.

Thanks for the tip on the O-rings. Got a similar good source for cap sensor batteries?

Thank you everyone. I just have to decide if I want the flow thru or regular caps.

My 2 cents- I would buy the unit first without the repeater and see how it works. No need to spend extra $$$ if not needed.

Tweety’s has good prices also.

Personally, I would just get the regular caps and take the security device off. They weigh less and have less leakage issues.

I have the flow through caps, if they fail, or I were to do it again I would buy the cap stile. Every time I have tried to put air in a tire with them on it gives a weird reading till I remove / replace then they go back to normal. Kinda defeats the point. Wont travel without them, have saved me money twice.

I purchased ours from tsttruck.com as well. I have the internal mounted sensor for about 3 years now. Battery life said 5-7 years.

Tweety's.
No security cap, no o ring, and remove the batteries each winter.
24/7/365 on the TV also.

Why no O-ring? They are a few pennies.
