If you are talking about the TST brand, which we have. I'd like to know what your low parameter settings are. If you are where it gets very cold at night you might be going below your low setting which will cause the alarm to sound.
If say the daytime temp is 70 and at night it goes down to 30/40 you could see a 10 pound difference but as it warms up the next morning, it will go back up. Same thing going down the road. Starting out cool and as tires & road heat up your tire temps will rise. We've seen as much as and 18 pound difference. Then as things cool down, it goes back down to where the cold tire pressure setting is set. Di

I put mine on yesterday ,when I went out this morning the alarm was going off, took the monitors off the wheels and checked my tire pressure and each wheel had lost up to 10 pounds of pressure, did I put them on the valve stem to tight, to loses, I put them on what I felt was firm, why did this happen??

I just finished up a 900 mile ish trip and the ole TST just sat there and worked flawlessly.

However, I don't know and could not figure out which is best. [emoticon]

I use the Pressure Pro TPMS. It has alerted me to a potential problem twice. I have a 40 ft fiver and don't have any problems with signal reception.

Our Tireminder system from CW works just fine with no need for a booster. Good luck.
