Default Hi-lo tire air inflation dvice

Is there a device to monitor air inflation levels in the two tires of my 19 foot Hi-lo? If so, where can I purchase one and what is the cost? Any installation involved? Thank you.

Google "TPMS" for trailers. hint Amazon and read about them and see which ones you think will work for you. There are many to choose from. Good Luck

One more thing, if you buy one that replaces the caps on the valve stems, do yourself a favor and have metal valve stems installed.

Exactly what Gary said! The rubber stems flex and allow the TPMS sensors to bang against the wheel rims, which causes them to break. Guess how I know? But, I think I was one of the first users to experience this and TireMinder (my TPMS brand) replaced the three sensors that broke this way free for me. I don't think they will do that now, and they have a warning to use metal valve stems to keep this from happening.

Here's a link to an updated version of the one I have: https://www.amazon.com/Minder-Resear...E5PHTWB4QNFPXX It shows you pressure AND temperature in up to 6 tires. I use 6 sensors - 4 on my truck's wheels and 2 on the single trailer axle on my HiLo. I'd recommend you do the same. The additional tongue weight puts quite a bit of stress on the tow vehicle's wheels. The temperature monitoring is an early warning of impending problems.
