Our TST system just saved us today, we were going through Phoenix AZ, warning when off, low pressure on left rear trailer tire, air pressure was down from 110 Psi to 80 Psi, tire was loosing air.
Stopped and took care of problem with no blowout or damage.

Just got my TST 507 flow thru system and thinking of setting my high pressure at 100 psi, low pressure at 65 psi and high temp at 110 F. The default temp is set at 158 F. but I think the Tow max tires would be long gone before they got that hot. My tires are at 80 psi cold. Any thoughts from people using this system.

Driving in hot weather, I find that my tires often get to 110 deg. I think you will get more false alarms than you want.
JMO. I used the Michelin default.
The pressure alarm will let you know cause low pressure will come in before the temp alarm in my experience.
Nothing is cast in stone, you can set it to meet your needs and experience.
When that alarm goes off, every one is interested.

Thanks for sharing your experiences and this is something I would definitely like to add. Experience years ago with one tire on 5ver that went flat and got jammed into the remaining tandem tire was not alot of fun to wrestle with at the side of a highway with a non-existant shoulder and traffic passing too close for comfort. Morning pressure check of all tires and noon time visual inspection a couple of hours before the flat did not prevent this, whereas as the TST may have given me the opportunity to get off the highway somewhere more convenient.

I just checked Tweety`s site and there is not a listing for TST 507 non flow-through. I think this may now be listed as the TST 510 ? For those interested, there is now a short video on the installation of the sensor units and linking with the monitor. The flow throughs require removal of rim and tire for internal installation whereas the non-flow through simply screw on the valve stem. I am leaning towards the non flow through as I would be able to remove them during winter storage (imo unnecessary cold weather exposure shortens the life of most batteries) and they are easily replaceable if one of the sensors dies prematurely. Other than theft prevention, are there any other advantages to the flow throughs ? The rest of the hardware appears the same. I am also unclear whether the booster is installed in the TV or the trailer and is it hardwired into the 12v system ? Thanks for your help.

The 507 has user replaceable batteries.

Just ordered the 507RV Flow Throughs today. Can't wait to get these installed and the peace of mind that will come with knowing what is going on behind me.

Now...where to find the 45 Degree Valve Stems for my wee 13" wheels on the X20E. Any Ideas @OttawaSteve?

Thanks again to all the contributors in this thread, really helped me to narrow down what to go with, mostly based on reputation and reliability.
