I have heard about folks like you. Pass them on the side of the road all the time.

Had the dealer put in `Dully Valves' & I then install a Doran 360 14 senser (6 on the rig, 2 on the dolly + spare tire, 4 on toad + spare tire) TPMS system before it left the lot. It's saved my butt a couple of times. Will NOT move rig without it!

In my years of RVing I've seen so many on the side of the road also...

The type that never look after their RV before they head off, never do a check around their rig when they stop for a fuel up or lunch

And lots of idiots that drive our roads with TT or 5th wheels too heavy for their TV....

I'm in the "I drive safe" category.... and what were people doing 10yrs ago, 20yrs ago??? these devices didn't exist!!!

You are right about things changing. 20 to 30 years ago the rving lifestyle was just getting started for many and the quality if tires were better. I'm just saying that some technology is worth a part of our lifestyle too! Checking tire pressures before leaving and at each stop is great but now I can see what is happening real time on pressure and temps.
Just another tool to make me and mine safer.
I can't put a price tag on that.

I put a price tag on something that costs 20$ to produce and is being sold 300$!


But I understand what you mean... I'll probably look into the cheaper model I linked earlier, that seems like a more reasonable price!

I have had my Tireminders for several years and They have saved me money more than once, and I am one of those who crawls around before every move to make sure the pressure is right. Now I check before every move and the gauge is more accurate than my tire gauge and I don't have to get in the dirt to check the duals, etc. I did get them on sale at a rally and they are worth every cent and the PEACE of mind is priceless. Sure, every once in a while there is a false alarm but also now you can get a good idea when it is false from the experiences of other alarms. I would not do without them and the customer service is outstanding....

Well, I just purchased the TST 507 with 6 flow through sensors. I'll let you know how it goes.
