Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Looking for recommendations for a TPMS for our trailer. We have a 264BH. Thanks.

I have used the TST - 507 for years with no complaints. It's been a perfect system for me. I never installed the signal booster and have had no trouble connecting and staying connected to transmitters.

I use the TST-507 with cap sensors and their signal booster. I changed my valve stems to metal. Each cap sensor can be secured to the stem with their nut but I just unscrew them to add air and when our TT is in storage. Less expensive than the TST-507 with flow through sensors. Highly recommend either type.

This question comes up about once a week here on JOF. A quick search in the box above will yield a lot more info. Here are a couple of recent threads:

TST and Tire Minder get good reviews. I own the latter and swear by it. There are many others mostly cheaper. The main thing is get one. I consider a TPMS mandatory equipment. There are some items for our 5th that I don’t go cheap, this is one. Tires are another.

I have used EEZ Tire for the past 4 trouble free years. I have sensors on my truck and trailer.

X whatever the number is at for the TST system.
I got a 507 system with the internal clamp on sensors. The cap style sensors should be put on metal valve stems. Rubber valve stems will flex too much and eventually will get cut. The metal ones for my wheels would make them stick out too far so if I accidentally curbed a tire they would end up getting broke. I thought about the flow thru ones and they require breaking the tire down to get them installed so I figured if I'm already having to break the tires down, might as well go with the internal clamp on. Batteries will last longer on them anyway.

Happy with my LCI Tire Linc. Easy to set up and seems to work well enough and do what it is suppose to.

I have been using the 507 system for 11 years full time. Originally I had the smaller monochrome monitor which finally died a couple of weeks ago after sitting on my dash for 11 years. It started showing pressure of over 400 psi randomly. I ordered a new color monitor a year or so ago because it was easier to see in sunlight and it didn't show the high pressure since I was using both the old and the new at the same time. The old one ended up in the trash. 11 years is pretty good service. During this period I have had 2 sensors go bad. Not bad service either. I would never travel without my TST system.

Metal valve stems ?

Are metal valve stems a must? Just bought a 507 system (still in the box), hoping to install prior to our first trip in two weeks.

X3 on TST. Saved my TT from much more damage that would have happened without the alarm.

Iíve been researching them, but havenít bought yet. TST claims their sensors work on rubber stems. I did notice they are a little lighter than the TireMinder sensors. I likely will wait until I replace my tires and put in metal stems, then go with TST.

I guess I'm the one bucking the trend here. I have a Tire Minder i10. Can be used on multiple vehicles, includes 4 sensors, does not require metal valve stems includes a a repeater, installs in about 10 minutes, programs in about another 10, and incorporates tire pressure and temperature warning in one unit. Only thing I did that wasn't in the kit was swap out the alligator clips on the power leads for the repeater to ring terminals to have a better connection at the battery. We've taken one trip with it so far and it really gives me peace of mind to be able to check my tire pressures at a glance.

Have my TST 707 switching between two different trailers for nearly 10 years. Flawless. I also nervously had them on rubber stems which never caused a problem but I DID notice scratches on the rim where they were bending and rubbing when driving. Ended up needing new tires this spring... put in metal stems.

I'm happy to hear this. I just ordered the i10. For some reason the i10 with 6 sensors was on for an exceptional deal on Amazon Canada, so I scooped it up. I should be receiving it next week.
