Upgrade Your Trailer Towing Experience with Advanced Monitoring Systems

Modern cars are seriously smart. Fancy sensors, warnings about EVERYTHING... but what about your trailer? That thing needs some love too! Towing monitors are a whole new level, giving you the inside scoop on what's happening back there.

Here's what they can tell you:

Trailer Towing

  • Tire Pressure: No More Crawling Under the Trailer These remote systems check your trailer tires' pressure constantly. Prevents blowouts, saves your tires, and keeps you from having to check them manually, which is a pain.

  • Weird Vibrations: Your Trailer's Talking to You Monitors like the Tattle-Trail can sense if your trailer's bouncing around too much. Could mean tire trouble, suspension issues, even that the hitch is loose! Or worse case, it just FELL OFF!

  • Busted Lights? Dead Battery? No Problem. Some monitors keep tabs on trailer lights (brake, signal, etc.) and if the battery's going dead. Perfect if you're hauling a boat, since those parts can get dunked in the water.

Trailer Towing

The Catch: They're Not Cheap...

...But if you tow a LOT, it might be worth it. Think of it like insurance for your trailer AND peace of mind while driving.

Here's a quick breakdown of some popular options:

Trailer Towing

  • Tire Sentry: Old-school but reliable. Monitors your truck AND trailer tires at the same time.

  • PressurePro: This one's fancy! Lots of tire sensors, dashboard display shows pressure how you like it (psi, etc.), and even remembers data for a while.

  • Yazaki Intellitow: This might be the coolest one (if it's actually out yet). It does lights, battery, the whole nine yards.
