The info liftedastro gave you is in the direction but hard to find. First time I programmed mine it worked fine. Just last week I had the same problem you had and found it buried in the instructions.

Sorry I missed your question.

FYI........My TST requires the valve stems to be metal. My TST system works great. Provides pressure and temp. data of each tire.

Thought I would report back now that I've done a 2300km, 12 night, 4 campground tour of Ontario. The TPMS system worked great, and really allowed me to just focus on driving since I could see the pressure and temps at a glance. I had one tire that seemed low one morning so I put about 3 psi into it but otherwise no loss of PSI at all. The valve stems (Sensor heads) managed to swing down against the rim because of the centrifugal force but did not cause any problems and remained there for the duration of the trip. I will keep an eye on those stems but for now they are doing their job.

On a side note, The PSI would go from 51 up to 58 tops, then on cold mornings drop to about 49PSI. A mile or two on the road and they all came up to 51PSI again before the highway travels and/or sun heated them up and cause the PSI to rise. The temps were fine, I don't think the tires got any hotter than about 88 degrees at any given time. It was kind of fun on a 4 hour drive to see how the tires were behaving.

In Conclusion, Best money I ever spent. Cheers to JOF and the posters for allowing this solution to land in my lap.

Just something to add... I am one of those guys that checks pressures everyday. About 6 years ago we were at the beach in NC, not camping, with the family. About 400 mile drive home. Filled up with gas and checked tire pressures, everything was fine. About 250 miles into trip I realized that the rear end was feeling loose. Adjusted mirrors, saw my tire was really low. Slowed down and tried to get to shoulder, lost the tire and almost lost control of the truck. My only thought is that somewhere along the way I hit a nail or something and had a slow leak.

Checking tires in the morning only is good, but not great. For people with diesel trucks and an 80 gallon tank, they can theoretically drive for a LONG time without stopping. Getting a nail in the tire could prove catastrophic if you don't catch it in time.

20 years ago we didn't have airbags, I think we can all agree they are worth the cost. I would argue that $250 is cheap insurance versus having a blow out, damaging the side of the camper, having to get towed or having roadside assistance come out to change a tire, replacing a tire, etc.

And to think my DW complained when I purchased them. I just told her I wasn't about to risk any of our lives because of a few $$ and that anything that could give me an advance alert was money well spent.
