12" rain

Yesterday we had another one of those south Texas 12 inch rains (the drops were 12 inches apart). Just enough threatening skies to keep me close to home. Staying in gave me a chance to do a little research on tire pressure monitoring systems. One of the first purchases I made for Mel was the Pressure Pro Tire Monitoring System to alert me to a failing tire. Expected life of the sensors was 3 to 4 years. When I left SeaWind the other day I noticed one of the sensors was no longer working. I'm sure the others won't be far behind. I have the option of replacing the sensors at a cost of $50.00 per sensor (X6= $300.00) or buying a brand new system for $400.00. After doing the research I decide to spend the additional $100.00 and go for a completely new system with added features and a two year warranty. To me this system is peace of mind insurance. If you've ever seen the damage a tire can do when coming apart you know what I mean. Here is a link to the system I chose. Doran Mfg Link

We are again overcast today and the temperature hasn't made to 70 yet today, so things are off to a slow start. There will still be plenty of opportunity to enjoy the good life.

  1. Hi John,
    I went with a Hawkshead system on my truck and fifth wheel. With eight sensors I didn't want to have to buy new ones when they died. The Hawkshead sensors have batteries that I can change, cool. I hope you new ones work as well.
