Review of TST Tire Pressure Monitoring System for RVs


Hi, everyone, Adam, with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the TST TPMS monitoring system. What this is going to do, it's going to allow you to monitor your tire pressure and temperature on your RV or whatever you may be hauling. So, what I really like about this system is we're going to be able to monitor the tire pressure and temp on our vehicle. But if we start adding things to the back of our RV here, we're going to have more tires. So, might as well be able to grab a couple more sensors, throw it on whatever we may be hauling.

In this instance, we do actually have a flat tow set up. So, we're going to actually buy a kit of four with four more sensors. So, we can throw those on our MINI Cooper here and be able to monitor not only our RV, but our MINI Cooper's pressure and temp as well.And on top of that, let's just say you're hauling one of these kinds of trailers, whether it has two wheels or four wheels, we're going to be able to monitor those as well. So, whatever your setup may look like, just know that this system is going to take care of monitoring the temperature and the pressure of your tires. All you really need to use in this setup is you're going to have these caps that go on the end of your stems of your tires.

You put those on, sync them up to the monitor. You're going to be able to monitor its temperature and pressure. Anything that you have that has tires, you can put this on there and monitor all of that. So, this is going to be a colored monitor, and it's going to be able to give you visual and audible alerts.If you have a blowout, it can detect that and it will set off an alarm and I have listened to it. It's extremely loud so you're not going to overlook it.

Also it is going to be able to monitor your pressure and your temperature on two different types of measurements. You could do PSI or bars, or you can do Fahrenheit or Celsius. It will update every five minutes for each tire just to make sure it's giving you an accurate reading. So, those come with two different types of mounts. We do have a rubber little fitting here that you can stick in there and it's pretty gripy so it's not really going to be sliding around, but if you would like to do something else, it does come with a suction cup mount.

You're just going to put that in like so, and then you can mount it on your windshield just to give you a nice, good view while you're driving down the road.So, this is going to be a micro USB charger port, and it will come with a cigarette lighter USB port that you can sit there and plug it in and let it charge while you're using it. But the specs does say that it's going to have a battery life of 12 to 18 months. So, in our setup right now we have our RV, which is a dually. So, we have our two front tires here and then our four in the back. And then you see, we have another four and that's going to be our flat tow setup on our MINI Cooper in the back. And as you can see, it is cycling through all the tires automatically. So, after a while you'll be able to see all of the pressures and temperatures of all your tires without having to touch the monitor, which is going to be nice when you're going down the road, you don't have to take a hand off the wheel to check. So, one alternative to this system would be the TireMinder.What it does it's the same exact TPMS system that we're using now, but we're just going to use an interactive app on our phone. The TST is going to get everything done and it will be done on a pretty colorful screen. It's not huge, but it definitely isn't smashed into this small screen. Everything's spaced out and pretty visible to see. So, our kit is going to come with everything we need. We will have our color display. We will have our converter, so we can set it up with a 12 volt outlet inside our vehicle. Two different mounts, a couple extra O-rings and hardware, our extension. And obviously our tire sensors. If some of your tire sensors go bad, we do have replacement parts a replacement of two, and a replacement of four. And we do also have a replacement transmitter to extend your reach of your monitor. So, now that we went over everything that comes with our kit, let's just go ahead and install it together.So, I just realized that we can actually use this when we aren't connected to power so that's very nice. So, I'm actually just going to set it up here and I don't have our extension or anything installed yet. But now that I know that that's going to sit here, let's just go ahead and put the transmitter in and put our sensors on. And if you would like to use the suction cup, all you got to really do is put this in here like so, slide it up to lock it in place. I'll probably put it somewhere on my window here. We're going to adjust it just so we don't have to be looking down while we're driving to check our sensors. If it's right there in our plain view should be a little safer. So, I found the battery. So, we're going to tap into either one of these two. They did have one already here.So, I'm going to go ahead and install ours on this battery. Just go ahead and take your wrench and just undo this bolt. And then we can take our positive wire, put that down and then put it on and tighten it down. You're probably going to be hooking up your negative to the negative terminal on your battery as well. So, if the lights on we're in business. So, now what we're going to do is mount it just so it's nice and secure. It does come with some hook and loops with some stickies on the back. So, I'm going to stick one to the back of our transmitter and then just secure it to our battery here. Perfect, so we're going to put these cap sensors on just like a normal cap. So, you screw onto your stem, tighten them by hand. You'll hear a little bit of air coming out, but then as you keep turning, it's going to lock that down. So, all that air pressure is going to be on the inside of this. And that's how we get our reading.And they do include a tool which will slide on the back here and it'll get that nice and tight. And this cap will come off this little plastic piece. So, by cranking down here, you don't want to mess up those threads and that's why they give us this tool to finish the tightening process. Once they're nice and tight, we can go ahead and set up our color display. So, we're going to go ahead and power this on. It's going to be on the side here, flip that on. Perfect. And now it says to press and hold the set button until it beeps. So, I am going to find the set button, which is right here in the middle, hold it down and there's the beat. This is now in the programming mode. So, now we're going to press plus until we see the learn ID.There she is now we're going to quickly press the set button. And these are going to be our tires so we can switch which ones we want to do just by going through the plus or minus. So, this one's going to be our front driver's side. So, this is going to be our driver's side front wheel. So, what we want to do is we want to click set. The S will flash, and then we're going to hold our sensor up to this point right here. This happens to be the sweet spot. So, once we do that, we're going to click go and should find it. It's going to flash that code. Then once you do that, you're going to click set. Then once you click set it's going to come back here and it should remember that tire, as you can see, that code still comes up when we put it on that front driver's side tire. So, now we'll go ahead and get our back to on the driver's side.So, our outer tire, since we do have a dually here is going to be this one, and this is going to be the air feed for this outer tire. So, what I'm going to do is click set. After they're going to blink, I need to hold it up to this side again, and then click go. It's going to find it hopefully and she did. And then we can click set. And now our outside tire is found. So, now we can go to the inside tire, which is going to be this sensor, click set, hold it up to the sensor, and do the same exact thing for all of your sensors. So , if everything went well every single tire should have a code. And that's exactly what it is. So, now we can just go ahead and finish the install. So, we did have the alarm going off. We need to set our parameters for our pressure, just so it's not going to throw us that error code. So, we can either choose PSI or bar. So, what we're going to do is hold down, set until it beeps.It's going to beep like that. We'll press plus three times, and then we're going to click set again and we can either choose bar or PSI. In this case, we're going to choose PSI. Once we get that, we're going to click set and then back. So, now we have PSI up there as we did before, and you can also choose between Fahrenheit and Celsius. So, we just got to hold down set, it'll beep, press plus four times, click set, and I'm going to choose Fahrenheit. And then you click set and then back. So, now we have PSI and Fahrenheit, but you can go ahead and choose whatever you prefer. As you can see, we do have a low pressure reading here. That's just because we haven't set our parameters. So, to do that we're going to hold down set and we're going to do the low pressure set. We are going to click set again, and it says 100 PSI is going to be our low pressure, that's quite a bit. So, I'm going to go ahead and move this down to about 65. And once you set it there, you can click set again.And if you wanted to set the high one, you just go to high, click set, high PSI, I'm probably going to bring down to about 95. And as you can see this is going to be for just our front two tires. We're going to click set and back. So, as you can see our two front tires, since we set the parameters of the PSI, we don't have any codes, but we need to set the back ones because we're still running a code here. So, we'll do that same exact process for the back wheels. And so, our tires will have a max PSI rating. So, I would set the max on here just as it says on your tires, the minimal rating, there's not necessarily a reading on your tires. So, then just go ahead and set your lower PSI to whatever you see as fit.So, to set our temperature parameters, what we're going to do is just same process, hold down set until it beeps. Go to set high temp and high temp is the only setting we're going to have for the temperature. Once you do that, we're going to click set and they do recommend to keep it at the default, which is 158. But if you have some reason why you want to change it, you can go ahead and do so. Once you're done just click set and back, and as you can see, we have readings on all of our tires and we are within the parameters. So, we don't have any error codes. So, then we can just go ahead and set this up wherever we'd like and monitor it while we're going down the road. Well, thanks everybody for watching. I hope this helps and gives you a little bit more information on this TST TPMS tire sensor monitor.
