Tire Minder: there is a trick to setting the system. I believe they fixed it in the newer versions, which, I do NOT have.
The instructions on the older systems are difficult to follow at best! ( like mine).
It may "appear"to the user to be in "monitoring" mode but could be in the "set" mode it looks very similar. Has happened to me twice. The equipment was not defective, in my case, rv owner stupidity ! ( not saying this happened to you )
Each time I had a brain fart, I called the Tire Minder company in Florida.
They re walked me through each reset and stayed until I had them back on the truck and ready to roll.
I, like the poster, previously had a blow out on Power King tires. Set me out of commission for 3 months in repairs: damage $3,200. My out of pocket was $1,200. Unlike the poster, I did NOT have a Tire Minder at that time.
Tire monitoring systems can be confusing. Directions are difficult to follow. Most of us "lay people" need simplicity. My next system will be just that: UNDERSTANDABLE !!
BTW: my tire issue was separation . I had monitored the heck out of them!
