My brother in law had a blowout on their Boler. ( he driving ). I was following along behind, I didn't see anything like a blowout, just sparks and the flopping tire. I pulled along side and honked to acknowledge what was happening. He knew nothing, sensed nothing had happened. There were sharp curves on the road ahead; I think it could have been bad on a curve at 60 mph. We both have sensors on our trailers.

Thumbs up

I got the Bartun units off Amazon a few thousand miles ago. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Only $43 for a set of 4 and runs through an app on the smart phone. Cheap peace of mind. A few false alarms but happy so far

I've used a 4 wheel Tire Minder monitor on my Escape for 2 years & have had no problems. They include a booster that I installed in the cabinet over the bed, but it provided a good connection to the truck without it.

I also have a IR Temp device that I use to take hub readings when we stop, It works well also.
I like the IR temp reading idea, I use my hand, but will try to remember to bring IR reader

On our two tire Scamp I ended up putting the two extra sensors on the Scamp spare tire and the tow vehicle spare tire since the device is looking for 4 tires.

A lot of good information, thanks guys, going to get some tire pressure monitors.

I've had good results with the cheap ones off of Amazon. Specifically this one right now: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TSXXZJM

The point that it increases the chance of a slow leak is valid, and I've actually run across that. It's trading a moderate chance of an annoyance to reduce the chance of a disaster, though, and probably saved me a blowout on the road when I had a slow leak caused by a nail. I might have noticed it in the morning or when stopping before it blew since it was pretty slow (maybe 2PSI/day), but maybe ot.
