TPMS Recommendations

Given my recent tire failure experience I am looking at TPMS kits for our RW. The TST 507 flow through appears to receive high marks from RV'ers. Would welcome comments and suggestions.

I have had the 507 with the non flow through sensors for several years. Never had a problem with them other than needing to replace the batteries in the sensors.

The system paid for itself a few weeks ago. I made a turn at a highway intersection. A few seconds later the low pressure alarm went off. By the time I got stopped on a side street the pressure was already down to 50psi. I had picked up a large piece of metal in one of the rear tires. Had I not had the system I'm not sure I would have known the tire went down until something worse happened.

Since I had the system, it only cost me the price of a new G614.

I have the TST 507 with flow thru and love it. Have had the flow thru for 3 years. Previously had the non flow thru which I put on truck. If you get TST I would definitely recommend the flow thru as best way to go.

Thanks to all for your insights. The TST 507 flow through will get a close look.

I also have the TST 507 for 5 years now, great system, has saved my several times.
Also when I needed support and some replacement O Rings, they sent me replacements at no charge, TST is a great company

I have the flow through sensors on the RV and the non-flow through sensors on our Ford Duallie. The non- flow through anti theft wrench is a bit of a pain to use on the inner dual wheels and I've found the programming of the sensors to be a bit challenging but I wouldn't be without a TPMS. Our old system saved us numerous times, stuff like drywall screws in the trailer tires causing slow leaks that you wouldn't see just by looking until the tire exploded on the road because of low pressure/high temperatures
