Has a package of 12 on sale for $634.00. Can mix full flow with non flow and comes with a repeater, color monitor, and mount. These are the TST507 with free shipping.
(855)367-4787 Chris said he can put together different packages. These are pressure and temperature monitoring. Have the metal valve stems installed if you go with any brand of the non flow thru.

We also have the TST system for the trailer only and mounted the repeater in the front clothes closet and wired it into the dome light. Bought the TST system in 2010 for $269. Wouldn't leave home without it.

Yes, I use the repeater. I had mine when the repeaters didn't come with the setup. I would constantly drop the right rear tire of the rig when in rain or wide-open interstates even though I had the extended range antenna. I talked with the owners of TST as they are about 30 minutes from me, and I bought the repeater. I installed it in the front compartment, hooked directly to the battery and it made a world of difference. I haven't lost connection with the tires since and my batteries are now working right at a year before I change them.

Just to clarify my earlier post on this, the system was working and it showed temp and pressure. I did not hear nor feel the blowout, first time ever that happened, but had a passing car point back to the trailer. It was on the front passenger side tire. I check pressure on every tire with a hand gauge before we leave every time and match it to the system to validate the readings. I still do not understand why there was no warning before the blowout nor after. When I contacted the company their comment was, “ oh sometimes that happens” and later in the conversation when I asked why didn’t I get a warning that the sensor was gone and their answer was “ oh it may take 15 or so minutes before that warning would come”. Now what good is that late of a warning if something catastrophic happens ? How can you trust a system that operates like that?

They work if you pay attention to them . I was 40 miles from home headed on a vacation, had not replaced the China bombs yet. TPMS reading on one tire started increasing in temperature and pressure, kept monitoring it, kept increasing. “I’ll just stop at the next rest area to check it”.... KABOOM.... $3K damage. I will never wait for a rest area again.

Well you are correct, however they are suppose to alarm/warn you when temp or pressure is rising and if they don’t do that then that is a problem and causes what happened to me. My frustration is the response I got from the company that is is no big deal and “sometimes happens”. Seems a little cavalier to me.

I have an EEZTire system I bought several years ago that polls each monitor every 6 seconds. Uses a set of batteries in a year but does work great. Immediate alarm AFTER my blowout.

Next step after changing the tire-tightening the lug nuts on aluminum rims. Hope everyone follows the recommended steps. For my Monty, initial tighten to 120 ft-lbs, drive 10-15 miles, check lug nuts and retighten to 120 Ft-lbs, drive 20-30 miles, same procedure, drive 50 miles, final check--the lug nuts have seated and they are at 120 ft-lbs. Drive with not much concern about lug nuts. But I will recheck at our next overnight.

If I were going to get TST 507, and needing "12" sensors , I would get them from Camping world. The 507 with 6 sensors for $221.11 , and three 2 packs of sensors for $56.47 ea. = $169.41. Total $390.52 for A TST 507 with 12 sensors, color monitor repeater , and free shipping. The TST 507 with four sensors are also on sale for $182.22 free shipping. Not sure how long the sale will be, but heck of a price. Still on sale as of this morning .

Might be time to look into a different system, that one seemed to fail .
