Mine is also easy to get at, but even if it was a bit of a pain, I'd be checking it before every trip. You don't need it until you need it. Seems to me that's even more important for those big 5vers.

My favorite quote is from explorer Roald Amundsen, "Adventure is just bad planning".

I haven't had too many unplanned "adventures" in my 30 years of camping.

Of course it's important to check air pressures before hitting the road but why not also carry a small air compressor to make sure you have additional air if you need it? And of course, a TPMS is good insurance.

It's too bad that TPMS's are so expensive. But, yes, I'm surprised if an RVer isn't carrying a compressor. I mean, what do you blow up all the inflatables with!?

I don't carry an air compressor. Generally the air pressure doesn't change from when I check at home to when it is time to leave the campground. If it does, I get air at the gas station.

Getting air at gas stations around here sucks major monkey junk! By that, I mean it's terrible, it's expensive assuming the service station pump is even working. We would be better off trying to fashion a straw to get air into a tire than depending on a service station to have air. A 12v air pump is a VERY smart item. I don't have one yet, but it's on my short list.

I find that most gas station compressors will not provide 80psi. Unless you are at a truck stop, you will need a compressor.

I have never had that problem. More likely to have that problem with a portable compressor unless it is a very heavy and expensive one

you probably have close to 3K in cargo capacity... I have less than 500

Taking my unit in tomorrow for some warranty work. Will have all the tires checked before I leave out. Also want to get under there while it is on concrete and check access to slide out motors.
