Close call, thank you Tire Tracker

Driving home from 4 day camping outing 1 hour from hone yesterday, Mothers Day. Suddenly the Tire Tracker went off and it showed a rapidly leaking tire. We were close to an exit and immediately slowed down to 45 mph and got off. Pulled into a gas station and sure enough the back left tire looked low. Pressure test showed about 8 lbs. 45 minutes earlier it was checked and was at recommended 65 lbs. Close call. Put on spare and finished going home. I see a tiny stub of a nail sticking out. Will take to tire shop tomorrow. Thankfully I had that Tire Tracker TT500. Don't know how much longer that tire would have lasted before it shredded and tore up the camper. Thanks Tire tracker.
