TST TPMS - did you need a repeater?

I have a 36' fifth wheel and short box truck and my TST 507 will have a sensor lose connection usually 2-3 hours into a trip. This has happened 6 of 8 trips we've taken since getting it. I can park my truck several truck lengths in my driveway and still pick up all 4 sensors. I called TST and they said I probably need a repeater. I've been in contact with Vulcan Tire where I bought it and they said I shouldn't and haven't heard of anyone with fifth wheel needing one. They said mounting the unit on a center console can cause problems buy mine is mounted in the highest area in the center of my dash.

For those with a TST, what are you towing and did you need a repeater? The repeater adds 30% to the cost of the system so it's not like a $20 add on. Plus the place I bought it from doesn't think I should need one.

I'm waiting to hear back from them after my last email.

I have a long bed crew cab and a 38 1/2 ft fifth wheel. My rv510 system work flawlessly without a repeater.

I have the TST507 with no repeater, and don't have any issues either. In the three years I've had the setup I've only lost connectivity to a sensor a couple of times, and it's always come back within a few minutes. My combo is a little shorter than what Norty listed

You guys are both longer than me - where do you have your receiver mounted? My cell phone is close to the receiver and wonder if it can cause problems although you would think it wouldn't take 2-3 hours to show up if it did.

Mine sits on the dash right in front of the steering wheel.

I have a 43 ft fifth, LB CC Pickup, 63ft overall and get all 4 of mine. My unit is located on the drivers side dash mounted to the window. I have it tucked in a corner to not interfere with my vision.

507 pass through is what I am using.

Just yesterday it warned me of a brake lock up with the temp gauge on the rear most passenger side tire.

I have not lost a signal yet.

To get it started I have had to put in the rear of the cab to get them registered faster.

Mine is on the dash, right next to the GPS.

I have a 36' fiver and the tst507 system. Interestingly enough, I just had a situation that might apply to you - as silly as it might sound. I had the monitor mounted just left of center on my Ram 2500 (closer to the driver's side). No problems. On our last trip I moved it maybe 8" to the passenger side of the center stack. 3/4 of the way to our location one of the left side sensors lost signal. I actually stopped, and checked the tire pressure just to be sure. On our way home, same thing happened but on the other left side tire. Batteries are fine.
On the trip we are on this week, I returned the monitor to the driver's side of the center stack where it originally was and no signal dropout on either side. So....take it for what it's worth but try moving it around a little and see what happens.

Never problem for me with my 507 standard sensors. Monitor mounted on top of the dash as far left as possible.
