Why You Need a Tire Pressure Monitoring System

A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a device that monitors tire pressure and alerts you if a tire issue occurs. Your tires are an important part of your RV, you can not only ruin a trip with an unexpected tire blowout, you will also be looking at spending a great deal of money.

An RV is a 15 to 25 ton vehicle traveling around 65 MPH…The RV, its driver, its passengers and everything else inside the RV is literally riding on it’s wheels. A TPMS provides alerts for tire issues. The main cause for a blow-out is under or over-inflated tires. A tire pressure monitoring system will allow it’s user to be warned of such conditions, helping them to avoid a blow-out. TPMS that provide temperature warnings can also provide an early warning of issues such as locked brakes.
