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 used the Pressure Pro system for five years, until the batteries in the tire sensors began failing. They charge $35 each for replacement sensors, so I bought a whole new system with ten sensors that use replaceable batteries for $400: EEZ RV TPMS. The price I paid was probably a special; I bought it at "The Big Tent" at the January RV rally in Quartzsite.

Both products work well, although the EEZ RV unit displays tire temperature as well as pressure, and it is easier to install than the Pressure Pro. Replacement batteries are readily available for a dollar or two each.
