Does anyone amongst us have advice, experience or opinions on aftermarket tire pressure monitoring systems?

Our regular vehicles (car, truck) were made before TPMS came along, so the only experience I've had with them were on a rental car. (When the idiot light came on, it looked to me like someone's backside seated on a slatted sauna bench. Took awhile to figure out it was was showing a tire going flat.)

Has anyone found them at all useful?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

We do not have one yet. The damage over low air pressure could cost you a lot of money. Like Dutch said the toad can blow a tire and if a front tire goes the damage will be heavy. Thousands of dollars to replace all the parts if the toad did not start a fire and burn up. We stop and check our tires all the time at rest stops and lunch breaks. Feel for heat off the tires and we only use truck tires on MH, hard to to kill them over RV tires. smile.gif
