Just received the 507 system today. IF we EVER get any decent weather up here, I'll install it and see what happens.

I bought the 507s. Can't imagine why a replaceable battery wouldn't last as long as a non-replaceable one. What's the difference? What kind of batteries are in the 510?


I don't know. That's exactly what is stated on a website that sells these particular TST systems.


More than likely the sealed 510 system has lithium-Ion Batteries and the replaceable battery unit would use a coin type watch/hearing aid battery.

Anyone currently owning a Pressure Pro or Doran system replace their sensors at $35 each or $350 for 10 sensors when the batteries go dead or just replace the whole system with a TST system at $499? My PP sensors are about 4 years old so I'm expecting to have some start failing pretty soon and wondering if I'd be better off spending the money on a different system considering the problems I've had with the PP.

I am thinking that this is the year for the Tire Pressure Monitor.

Q1. What battery does the 507 take?
Q2. How long do they really last?
Q3. If I were to go with the 510, is there a 'replacement sensor' Price? or are they $50 each?
thanks


Is there a replacement sensor - Yes

They are not $50 each. You send your sensor in a get a replacement sensor for $19.95

Ok. In the interest of not starting a redundant topic with regard to tire pressure monitoring systems, I searched through and read all of the posts in topics regarding tire monitoring systems here on the forum. After some extensive and thorough research on the various systems available, I've concluded that the TST system is the one for me to try. The TST seems to be very popular amongst many here on RV.net, receiving many positive comments.

However, I'm on the fence in choosing between the two systems offered by TST. The differences being that the 510 does not offer user repleacable batteries in the tire sending caps, but claims that the sendng units last 5 to 7 years before needing replacements, which are then offered at a discount. On the other hand, the 507 offers user repleacable batteries in the tire sending units, but state that the batteries only are expected to last 9 months to 1 year before needing battery replacement.

Opinions? Experiences in choosing and using either of these two particular TST systems?


We have the 510 system as that was the only one available when we purchased ours 4 years ago. Still going strong.

FYI...the 507 system sensors last "up to two years" according to the system manual. Installed the system two days ago and it performed flawlessly on our trip to AZ from San Diego. I like the monitor for the 507 much better than the 510. Finally, battery life of 5-7 years is worthless if the sensors fail well before that which was the case with my 510 system.....Dennis

HI all.

Some years ago we bougth the Duran Tire Monitiring System. I called them directly and spoke to them for almost a hour with questions. One specifically about replacement Battries. I was told that replacement Battries would be avaibile for many many years to come. The original Battries were soupposed to last 4-5 years. Which they didn't. I called Duran, and spoke to them again. You guessed it, no replacement Battries anymore. They said because I had bought one of their system before, and I was a "Perfered Customer" that I would be given a 15% discount on a Brand New Duran System. Which costs more even with the 15% discount, that what the TST System would cost for a 10 wheel system. I told Duran that I would never trust them again. Go with the replaceable Battries. And maybe put some though into buying some extra Sensors ahead of time, to insure that you will have back ups for when one dies on you. As one could be scrubbed off or taken by someone, or for what ever reason one might go missing or just gives out on you. We will only use a Tire Monitoring Systen now with "Replaceable Battries". Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill

I'm curious too as our 510 system-which I happen to like better thant the 507-has preformed flawlessly in the year and a half of fulltime use. Diana

Just curious, in what manner did the 510 sensors fail?
