Tire and RV damage
My tires were 2 years old, properly inflated and checked daily. No signs of wear or alignment issues. Separated and blew quickly. This was prior to tire pressure monitors purchase. Steel belts acted like a whip and bent slide frame and ripped out underbelly coroplast and more. And yes, an alarm would have gone off and perhaps if I noticed and stopped quickly it would possibly saved my wallet some pain. Each case is different. If I can travel at 62mph and not feel a thing, imagine possible accident if other tire blew and control was lost?! Not good!
My Michelin truck tires looked brand new. Replaced all at 45,000 miles because they were 6 years old. 5 years would be max on RV tires for me. This is an industry wide weakness. My unit is a 2015 and will see new tires in 2017 or sooner. As we say in motorcycling, the only thing that separates your butt from the road is your rubber! Nothing makes a day worse than lying in the street!
TPMS may not cure all, but it may save you from an accident!
Be safe out there.
