Taking good care of your tires is important, especially as an RVer. We have always been diligent about tire safety, care and proper inflation. But until recently, didn’t have a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on our RV. Here we review the TST 507 Tire Pressure Monitoring System by Truck System Technologies. We chose to go with 6 flow through sensors for our RV and 4 cap sensors for our tow vehicle. Keep reading – and watch the video – to learn more about the TST 507 TPMS. We’ll cover what comes in the box, features, and our thoughts.
Spoiler Alert: We like this so much, we featured it in our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide
Our Jeep comes equipped with an on board TPMS system. But of course, when we are towing it behind the motorhome, we aren’t able to monitor those tires. So the additional cap sensors allow us to monitor the Jeep tires while towing it.
We had been researching TPMS systems for a while, and this particular model was already on our short list. So when the folks at TechnoRV offered to send us this unit to test it out for ourselves, and share our honest review, we graciously accepted. Most of the time, we purchase the gear that we review. But occasionally, we do accept products gratis (or discounted). But ONLY if it is something we genuinely have an interest in and use for, is well-rated, and that we feel will be of interest to you – our audience. We never accept items that we would not have considered buying ourselves, after doing our own research.
About the TST 507 TPMS
The TST 507 is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) by Truck System Technologies. It remotely monitors the pressure or the PSI of your tires and temperature for optimal tire safety. This can be used for all sorts of tires on different vehicles such as RV, motorhome, truck, trailer, or car. Knowing your vehicle’s tires pressure is super important for safety reasons, but it’s especially important for an RV because we live out of our motorhome.
Using this device dramatically increases safety, and helps ensures proper tire inflation and temperature which can help reduce the risks of blowouts or other tire failures. You may have seen the sobering results of what can happen after a tire failure in our blog post and video “Where RVs Go To Die” after our visit to an RV Salvage Yard.
This is the only TPMS system (to our knowledge) that includes a color monitor. It is 3.5″ and weighs less than a half a pound. You can choose flow through and/or cap sensors for each tire. The cap sensor is very popular with those are looking for a low-profile sensor. The Cap Sensor can be used with metal or rubber valve stems.

My thoughts on this TPMS
After using the TST 507 TPMS system for about 4 months now, I have to say I am very impressed with this unit. The setup and installation was really easy. With the preset alert triggers, and ability to watch the data scroll through the display, I now have more peace of mind when driving our RV. This system has saved me a significant amount of time in checking tire pressure (and airing up as needed with our Air Compressor) before each trip. My only regret is not installing this system in our RV from day one! It would have saved me a lot of time in tire checking before and during trips.
How much does this TPMS cost?
The starting price for four cap sensor and flow through sensors is $297. Prices vary depending on how you build your system. You can easily customize your system and add on more of either type of sensor as well.
As mentioned above, we have 6 flow through sensors for our RV plus 4 cap sensors for our tow vehicle. The regular retail price on this system comes in at around $565, fo the unit, color monitor and 10 sensors.
However, this TPMS is currently on sale – see the Where to Buy Section below for more detail, and links to purchase.

CURRENTLY ON SALE – As at December 2019, the best price available on this unit is from Mobile Must Have. They have a Grand Opening Sale, with an additional 15% off all TST TPMS units, when you use the special discount code TST4FRIENDSRVL in the checkout. This 15% discount is on top of the sale price you will already see here.
Update: The 15% coupon expired Dec 31, BUT they now offer a 10% off coupon code TST10RVL2020. This is still the lowest price we are aware of anywhere!
The Mobile Must Have online store is run by our full time RVing friends Erik and Kala (of Livinlite.net). They recently launched MobileMustHave.com which offers a variety of connectivity, technology, RV and safety gear. You can also buy from TechnoRV, another great online store for RVers, run by RVers Eric and Tami Johnson. Their price for a system like ours is currently $545 (plus tax) and you will get a $20 TechnoRV credit on future purchases.
We recommend purchasing either from Mobile Must Have or TechnoRV as these are both companies run by full time RVers that we know personally, and are great to do business with. Both enable you to tailor a complete kit to your specific needs, especially if you prefer a mix of the type of sensors (as we have). Unfortunately, it’s not QUITE as easy or cost effective buying a kit like ours through Amazon, unless you only want one type of sensor. Their kits come with either flow through OR cap sensors, not a combination of both.
