P metric is a nice ride for sure, but are they adequate for 10,000+ miles of towing.
How is your Carchet TPMS working out on your camper? I'm looking at a system for $99 or less on ebay.

They are working fine for me as long as I keep the monitor screen up near the dash board. If it sits on the floor, the signal gets blocked. Also, my trailer is only a 21'er. I feel the further you get the sensors from the display panel, the more problem you'll have with signal. All in all, I'm satisfied with what I got. I didn't pay big bucks, and I didn't expect big buck performance. So far, things are working out OK.
