Review of the TST Color Display RV TPMS with Flow Through Tire Sensors


Adam: Hi, everyone, Adam, with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at TSTs, TPMS monitoring system with our flow through sensors. So these flow-through sensors are all you're going to need on each stem of your tires to gain access to the readings of your temperature and your pressure. It's going to be able to transmit all of that information to your monitor and making it really easy to keep track of all your tires. So the difference between the flow-through sensors compared to others, this way, we can keep that sensor on there and just take this cap to air it up. It makes it really easy just as if we didn't even have these sensors on.

So that's very nice, compared to some of the others, as you see, we can't air it up with this as on. So we're going to have to remove it, which we lose a little bit of air.And then this is actually going to read zero. When it's off, we're going to have to air it up and then re-install it. And then let that sensor reread the new pressure reading. So that 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 it well be able to grab a couple more sensors, throw it on whatever we may be hauling. And 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. 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 it does 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 griffy. 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 duly. So we have our two front tires here and then our four in the back. And then you see, we have another four. Then 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 has got 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 tire minder, 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 the small screen. Everything's spaced out and pretty visible to see. So this is going to come with our colored display, our micro USB cable and power adapter. We are going to have our repeater here along with the hook and loop mounting hardware. We're going to have our flow-through sensors. Will also come with a cradle mount, it's nice on rubber. So stick on your dash. We do have a suction cup mount as well, along with our tools to get them nice and tight on our wheels. So this one is going to come with our colored display. You can get one that is going to be the black and white display, whatever, will fit your application best, go on etrailer.com and pick that one.So this kit is going to be really good for those four wheeled applications. You have a truck, you can get the pack of four and it's going to be able to cover all of those tires. It does come with a pack of six two. So I do have a camper here that has a dually in the back. So we're going to have six tires to take care of. There is a kit for that as well. If you have a trailer that has a couple tires too, you can go ahead and grab. We do have a pack of two for your trailers, but if you are doing a flat tow setup, we will have to purchase two of these to get all four of those tires, sinked up to whatever vehicle you may be flat-towing with. So I just realized that we can actually use this when we aren't connected to power.So it'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've 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. I'm 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 going to be hooking up your negative to the negative terminal on your battery as well. So with 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 all we really needed to do is just thread it on just like our normal caps. Put it on there. Clockwise gets it tight. You will see here a little bit of air coming out right at the beginning, but once you tighten it down enough, that should stop. So make sure the airflow stops and that's all you really need to do. So now we can go ahead and repeat that for every tire that is going to be on our rig. Whenever, we're going down the road. We're just going to turn our monitor on and we're going to hold down set.It's going to beep, we're going to press the plus until it comes up to learn ID, we're going to press set again. And so this is going to be our driver's side front wheel, which is what we're next to right now. So once I do that, I'm going to click set again. Our Fs are going to flash and we're going to do it's right here is the sweet spot of this monitor. We're going to hold it up to it like so, press go and it's going to read that code like so. Once you do that, we're going to click set. Now we have confirmed that this is our front driver's side and that's our code. So we save that into our settings. We could do that same exact process for all of our times. So it has got all of our tires on our RV set up, but we are going to be flat towing our Mini Cooper. So all we really need to do is grab two packs of two, and then we can go ahead and install these and sync it up to our monitor.Perfect. And then click set to set that into place. Now we can repeat that for every tire on our flat tow setup. 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 beeps. It's going to beep like that we'll plus, 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. This time we've got 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. 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 adjust 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, they're not necessarily a reading on your tires. So then just go ahead and set your lower PSI to whatever you seem is 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 we're in 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 tuning in and watching the TST, TPMS monitoring system with flow-through sensors.
