Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems TPMS

After having tire Problems with tires on my 5th wheel (see previous post), I have decided to get a Tire Pressure Monitoring System for my 5th wheel and Tow Vehicle. There are several brands on the market and I have narrowed it down to two of them that I am interested in. I am having a hard time making up my mind as to which one to get. Both are highly praised and touted by Owners of the units and the TST has a few more features. Any input would be appreciated.

The first one is the TST model 507 at $359 and $59 for signal Extender if Needed. It is the most expensive of the 2 finalists in My search. The sensors have user replaceable batteries, with a savings of over $100 in five years for replacement batteries.

507 System Starter Kit with 6 sensors is $359 and $59 if Signal Extender is needed
The 507 starter kit comes with everything with FOUR sensors It comes ready to monitor FOUR tires (You purchase additional sensors to monitor additional tires.).

Two extra senors are $100 The system arrives with two installation wrenches, a short antenna, a dashboard mounting bracket, a suction cup bracket, a cigarette charger, a hardwire kit, a detailed users manual, four sensors, and the on board monitor display.

 

The Tire Traker  TT400C 6 wheel sensors for $289 and $49 for a signal Extender if Needed. It has user replaceable batteries also. I like the display Better on the Tire Traker as it is more of a hand held if you want to carry it around while checking the tires.tt6
