I mounted my repeater in a storage compartment and wired it to the lamp. The lamp switch was replaced with a center off switch that turns on the repeater one way and the lamp the other way.

I had a 507 with repeater that went kaput after about 2 years. Tires would slowly drop out one after another. This happened on a long trip and there was only a Glamping World nearby, so I ended up with the TireMinder Trailer TPMS. Four years and works great. Never did figure what was wrong with the 507. Really like the solar part.

There was a great youtube video with a detailed comparison between TST and Tireminder. My vote is the TST 507.

I have the tireminder, reason was it supports multiple trailer combo's and I have two trailers I pull and it's easy to switch between the two with the system.

Otherwise, tireminder, TST are both very good systems.

I just bought the TST 507 with flow through valves. I tested it last weekend with good results. There are several good TPMS on the market. I liked the idea of the flow-through valves where you don't have to remove the monitors to add air. However, you'll need to have metal valve stems to use that model. On the trip, it cycled through each tire showing pressure and temperature. Seemed to work well.

I could use some ideas from the group on the best way to install the signal repeater. It looks like it could get attached on or near the battery box. But, it would be nice to have a shutoff to prevent draining the battery. How did you install it?


I made a small bracket that contained both the repeater and a automotive type toggle switch. The bracket slides onto the propane bottle hold down, so when park I remove the propane bottle cover, turn toggle switch and propane valve off.
