OK, TST seems to be a leading contender here; why did y'all choose this brand? Was it based on prior experience, knowledge, availability, price, prior recommendations, etc?


Thank you for answering my question.

In my case, it was customer service and price. They were having a closeout sale on my model.

Customer service is excellent before and after the sale. The business is headquartered near Atlanta, Ga.

X2. Service, Support and warranty. Many online testimonials as to how willing they are to replace failed units or to send o-rings for free to customers no charge.

I agree with their customer service. It is excellent and they do send o-rings when needed and sent an extra wrench also at no charge.

My system was a year or so out of warranty when I was putting the sensors on my Designer for a trip the next day. One wheel location on the monitor would not show the sensor. I tried to reprogram (code it) and it wouldn't code. After a bit of time wringing my hands I decided to try to code it to the outside wheel position for that axle. It worked. For some reason that one wheel location in the monitor wouldn't work. I called TST and they mailed a new monitor to my host site park and it was there when I arrived a couple of days later. All they wanted was the old monitor back to see what happened to it. No problems since. This is the 507 system with non-flow through sensors. I will not travel without it.

Which version do you use: 5 year permanent battery or annual replaceable battery? Is one more durable than the other?

Do you suggest getting these for both the tow vehicle and the trailer?

I also have the TST 507

Wrascal - I went with the annual replacement battery. Don't know if it's any more durable, but given the customer service reputation TST has I doubt there would be an issue if I had trouble with one of my sensors.

slabat - I think whether or not you put them on the TV is personal choice. I didn't because the truck already has a monitoring system. I used five of the six sensors the system came with on the TT and carry the sixth as a spare.

I went with the replaceable battery as well. I don't mind the maintenance, and I prefer to not have to purchase sensors again in a few years.

I put sensors on my TV as well. My truck did not have monitoring from the factory. Even if it did, I do like seeing actual pressure and temperature readings on each individual tire. The factory system on my wife's car only says that a tire is low ... Not which one or how low.

The TST system makes it easy to detach the trailer from the TV, so the system works for me for daily driving.

Another TST507 here. I have the flow thru sensors (very convenient) and I did have metal valve stems installed. The system has worked well. The truck has its own system so I did not buy sensors for the truck tires.
