The next expense you'll have, if you don't already have them, is to be sure all tires that you're adding sensors to have metal valve stems, if not you'll be testing the system a lot sooner than expected when the rubber stems start leaking.

There is no warning when the batteries need replacing. The reason I like the 507 is being able to replace the battery and not have to wait for the mfg. to send a replacement. My 507 came with an antenna extension which was not needed.

Already have metal valve stems on both truck and trailer.

That was something I was considering also with having a battery go dead while traveling. That's good to know about it coming with the extension.
Thanks!

Phil, if you haven't ordered yet, this link is where I got mine. He's a great guy, and seems to be available all the time to answer questions and help.
I got the exterior antenna when I ordered. The last pos I had needed it, and I wasn't taking any chances.

I sent an email at 9:05 pm cst asking about how to set the upper psi limit when my tires have 60 psi in them and the unit couldn't go lower than 100 psi. I had a response within an hour. Great customer service, which I think is hard to find these days.

My mistake, My original 510 came with the antenna. I replaced the 510 with the 507 and it didn't include the antenna. I was having a problem with the 510 out of warranty and the factory gave me a deal to trade for the 507.

If you haven't ordered yet, they are coming out with a new monitor in August. It's a colour screen but more importantly (at least until I see how they're taking advantage of the colour etc., and of course this is just in my opinion) the power will be supplied via a standard micro-USB connection. I think that's a great change, so it can be powered by the usual cables you probably already have in the TV for your smartphone etc. It will be compatible with existing sensors too, so if need just a new monitor this is still an option. I'm hoping that they will also offer a reasonable trade-in upgrade option.

If you haven't bought yet, this may also impact the price of the existing monitors in your favour, depending on the price point of the new version.

I too am looking to get a TPMS. I just replaced my China Bombs with the Goodyear Endurance tires this week. I've also ordered a new TV (Silverado 2500 HD-Gas). I assume most new trucks come with a TPMS standard or as an option. I wish the manufacturers would make the truck units expandable, so you could just buy the sensors for the tires on whatever you are towing and add them to the OEM system. My reasoning is that, having just gotten a new TV, it would be nice to not have to add another aftermarket display. So I got to thinking, and then did some looking, and came across this:

https://tireminder.com/product/tirem...aches-trailers

It is a "smart TPMS" that converts the TPMS signal to Bluetooth. You download the app, then pair your apple or android device to it, and your phone, tablet, etc. becomes the display, without needing a separate on cluttering up my new dashboard.

This seems like a good solution to me. Have any of you had any experiences with this type of system? You can get it (the 4 sensor version) from Amazon or Camping World for $339.00. I think this is the way I'm going, unless I hear bad things from this forum. Thanks for any feedback!
