TireTracker here. I had one sensor that started throwing a false signal which was immediately replaced under their lifetime warranty.

For those that have the EEZ system, do you recommend getting the booster? I have a 42' 5th wheel and a F350 long box. I was wondering if the signal would be strong enough to cover that distance.

I'm looking at adding a TPMS system to my rig.

I've considered installing one as well. If (when) I do, I'm planning to have a tire shop swap my valve stems over to metal. I've read of some people just adding the monitor to the end of rubber valve stems with no problems. However, last year I was simply check tire pressure on my trailer prior to a trip and as I put on the gauge the stem wiggled a bit then started leaking air. That small bit of movement was just enough to let a crack spread and open. I had to pull the tire and get a new stem installed.

With that experience, I don't want to trust the weight of a TPMS sending unit wobbling on the end of a rubber valve stem. If I'm going to spend the money for a system, I'm going to get metal stems that I can be certain will handle the extra force.

Not one of the choices but I've had a TST507 for about a year and a half now and am please with it. Customer service is great.

Find it interesting about comments about "customer service is great".

If the system is any good then I would think you would not know anything about customer service.

JMO, but if you have questions about the system, but no problems, and the questions are solved with a quick inquiry to the company, that equates to good customer service to me.

I've had zero problems with mine. But the rep will answer any question you have and will give you his personal cell number.

I've had the TST TPMS for a few years now and am very happy with it. The cost was right and the sensors have worked great. The only problem I had was corrosion on my valve stems of my truck due to keeping them installed year-round. TST replaced the 4 sensors free of charge, and advised me to use dielectric grease on the new set. All good from there.

If you've ever wanted peace of mind when traveling, get these! Sort of like setting your alarm clock and phone alarm because you have an important meeting in the morning - better safe than sorry. A travel friend also has the TST TPMS and had a warning go off to alert of a flat tire before it came apart to do any damage to his 5W.

I have the head unit velcro'd on my console in a tactful and inconspicuous location. Turning it on and letting it sync w/ the sensors is part of my regular routine.
