Installation looks easy if you have metal valve stems. Some units require them, others say you can use them with rubber stems but recommend the metal ones. TST has an optional internal sensor that would require the tools to dismount and remount the tire. Changing the valve stems to metal would require these same tools. The external sensors just screw on to the valve stems. Programming the monitor looks to be fairly easy. There are some online videos showing the process.

TST 507 system here. I have had it for a bit over two years now and love it. It has saved me once so far, but I don't continually look in my mirrors expecting to see rubber and pieces of my 5'er flying all over the road now. I pay more attention to the road ahead and enjoy the ride more. I still look back, but not expecting to see a disaster.

I had no trouble installing mine in. 30 min. I would recommend metal valve stems.

I have a TireMinder TMG400C for the RV but not the TV. Had it for 2 years and it works well.

Just ordered a TireMinder TMG400C. Been on my to do list for quite a while now. It's road hazards like nails, etc which I want to be able to know about before it's too late. Have had several thousand miles without incident, but there's always a first time just around the corner.

Thanks for all the input. I called and TST suggested metal valve stems. My Pinnacle has what appears to brass valve stems. Wondering if I should upgrade to a steel stem?

I bought a dozen all metal stems at a local auto supply. They were 5bucks a pair. Had a tire shop install and balance them.
The rubber/brass ones will fatigue and leak from centrifugal forces due to the addl. weight of the sending unit.
I had one do that. No more probls in 2 yrs.

Thanks for the input on the brass stems; I will have the stainless steel installed on the 5er.
