I guess you're talking about for the wheels/tires on your trailer - is that correct???


If that's what you're asking about, I got the Orange Electronics P409s on Amazon:







Here's the display unit installed in my truck:

















It's a really super peace-of-mind device!!! You can see it displays pressure and temperature - I have it set to alternate (it switches between psi and degrees about every 10 seconds). It is really, REALLY nice to see that your trailer tires are acting normally. So far in towing with the device for around 5000 miles I haven't seen anything abnormal, but if I get a slow leak in one tire I will know it hopefully well before it goes totally flat - the unit will alert me with beeps as well as the tire pressure indicating low pressure and turning red. I should then be able to pull over at a convenient place and swap on the spare before I totally ruin the tire and have to change it someplace that may not be flat or safe.

Yes I was talking about the trailer, sorry I didn't mention that. Really good advise, I appreciate it. Did you get it done here in Daytona. I live in Port Orange.

Thanks

Truck System Technologies. 507 system works really well. Tire temp as well as tire pressure. Nice monitor. You will need to put steel valve stems on your trailer tires.

HUGE peace of mind when towing.

I'm in Port Orange as well (the Fly-In).


I ordered it from Amazon and installed the display unit in the truck myself. I got the sensors mounted in the wheels/tires at the Discount Tire in Ormond Bch. There is also a Discount Tire by Sam's Club, and some other tire places in Port Orange, but the manager at the Ormond store is a Corvette buddy so I get all my tire work done there.
