Hey Chuck, I too have had some false alarms. I called and talked with a person (name has escaped) who felt that a signal booster would help. Apparently they now all come with one. Anyway, I installed one recently and will see if it improves things on next week's trip. And yes, outstanding customer service.

The TSP defaults to 157deg f, which is the Michelin standard.

We purchased our TST system about 5 years ago. We were impressed with it right off the bat but what sold us on having the right system was when we pulled in to a Verizon parking lot and the alarm went off reading 165!!! {The TST monitors Temperature & Pressure at the same time}. A quick check showed nothing wrong with the tire but after investigation, Dutch found a stuck brake caliper. It cause so much heat to build up it set off the alarm. We would never have know about this without our TST. So did we lose a caliper? Yep and fortunately Dutch carries a spare but the alarm sounding saved us from losing a rotor, tire and possible fiberglass damage. So yes, peace of mind for sure. Hugs, Di

I'm considering purchasing one for my RV.

Thanks Redhorse, I will contact them and check it out. The false alarms happen not all that often but they are an aggregation and you never now what could happen. My toad is only about 37 feet from the monitor so I didn't think I would need one, but like I said, I will check it out.

Finally got a chance to install the TST 507 with flow-through. I have not made a trip yet, but all seems to be working. When I screwed the sending unit on the spare valve stem, it alarm went off. Seems I only had 45 lb in the spare. I'm looking forward to my first trip to see how it goes.

We had an outing this weekend with the new signal booster and while our trip was only 540 mi I can say that there were no false alarms (and no real ones either). It looks like the booster may have helped out.
They retail for about $70 I think but since I registered my original purchase (w/o booster) they sold me the booster for $30.
We also have rubber stems.

Just returned from a weekend trip. The TST 507 seemed to work as expected I guess...How do I know if it is not working???? I compared the pressure using a gage and the TST 507 was dead on. One thing I noticed. The temp of the tires on the driver's side showed a few degrees hotter than on the passenger side. Then it came to me. As the two slides are on the driver's side the driver side tires are carrying more weight.

I have the TST 507 with 8 sensors. I absolutely love it and traveling is so much more relaxed now that I'm not constantly looking in the mirrors expecting to see rubber pieces flying everywhere. I look back now to see who is gaining on me which is everyone since I don't tow fast. I'm retired, I'll get there.

The side running in the shade can run a few degrees cooler also.
