Podcast 160 features Truck System Technologies

This week’s guest is Mike Benson, the sales manager at Truck System Technologies. His company manufactures and sells a line of tire pressure monitoring systems that allow RVers to track air pressure in RV tires as well as on tow or towed vehicles.

Benson talks about the benefits of selling and buying tire pressure monitoring systems, and why RV owners need to use them.

He also describes some advances in technology that allow tires to be auto inflated, as well as flow-through monitoring equipment that means RV owners can fill tires without having to remove and reinstall the sensor.

Truck System Technologies just released a new system that features a color monitor, and he describes some upcoming products, like a system that turns any cell phone or tablet into a monitor, which should reduce the cost of the system and ensure there isn’t another monitor competing for dash space.

Companies like Truck System Technologies are making it so easy to buy, install and use a tire pressure monitoring system. Benson notes that a blowout, especially on a front tire of a motorhome, is an invitation to a serious injury or fatal accident.

For less than $500 – or the cost of replacing one RV tire – RV owners can have a system that constantly monitors tire conditions, not just pressure, but heat as well, and alerts them to a problem before anything serious happens.
