I have read many posts about how important it is to maintain the correct tire pressure. Although I do check my rig's tire pressure regularly, I was wondering what you all thought of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems?

My local Camping World has this one (Hopkins Tire Pressure Monitoring System) on sale for $199 and I was wondering if it was worth spending the money for or not. All advice is appreciated as always.

We have the Pressure Pro System. It was the sysytem that our dealer sold. I'm sure some RV'ers have varied opinions on which is the best system. My advice is simple. Pick one and invest in it. I consider it a must have option!

X2 - you can check your tire pressure before you leave, but that does not tell you what's going on while you are driving! I use pressure pro and would never think of being without a TPMS. Low pressure or high pressure I'll be the first to know!!! Most cars today come with a mandated TPMS - to me that says it all.

I believe tires are a very neglected area of RV maintenance. So many folks figure that tires are good as long as the tread depth is ok. Since many RVs have little or no miles traveled, they can look good for a LONG time.

That being said, you can usually detect a problem before it escalates into a catastrophe with a decent tire pressure and temperature monitor.

A while back I wrote a blog article about them in general. You can read it at:

http://www.thewanderman.com/2012/02/checking-out-tire-pressure-monitoring.html

Personally, I wouldn't leave home without one. My RV only has 4 tires and it's pretty heavy. I'd hate to lose 1 of 4!

My system moniters the 6 tires on the rv & the 4 tires plus the spare on our toad. We do not carry a spare for the RV as we have a very good road service plan and realisticaly our TOAD is our SPARE.
