Default A must for anyone that trailers their boat!

Just got one of these installed. It moniters the air pressure and temp of the tires on your truck and trailer. If a tire gets low, you get a warning. If the temp rises (which causes blow outs) you get a warning. I got it on the truck and put it on both trailers. Which ever trailer I hook up, it starts reading. Very cool set up!

Sharp! I like it.

I religiously use a laser pyrometer to check tire temps while traveling, which will indicate tire issues.

I'd love to see them create a sensor that will monitor temps via replacing the rubber dust cap that goes over the bearing buddy/grease fitting as well. This will give you heads up into bearings heating and failing.

That's what I use. This looks to be a really interesting product thanks Gino.

I read that also. Sucks for most of us that have aluminum wheels.
