    I bought a good one onlineI think fleebay it's a draper with a gauge that has a tube with the valve connector and also has a button to release pressure if needed,it also saves the reading until you press the button quite useful Iwill try and find the link

    If you want something that's accurate you will have to pay a lot for it, we have an Intercomp £75.00 but it reads 0.3 psi low. Best to try one back to back with a known accurate gauge & make a note of discrepancy.

    How accurate does one need to be ? I've seen pressure fluctuate during day recently on our drive by 5 psi

    That's my point don't spend to much just check it against a know gauge (we need it extremely accurate) but its not necessary for a motorhome.(y)

    I bought one of these three years ago. It is referred to as a service gauge and is calibrated. Simple and robust. It is quite large (definitely not pocket-sized) and can be used to measure anything from car to large lorry tyres.

    Under law all tyre pressure gauges have to be officially pressure tested by an independent test company that is registered with the government ...can't remember how often this is required but, of course these devices are quite often abused by the general public so you might have a problem when its your turn to use one:D

    Check tyre pressures, I thought that was part of the annual service.

    Just went to look at the Michellin 12279 digital, available ebay £19.99 inc postage, checked out B and Q, coming up at £18.37. I'm thinking great, get my 10% discount next Wed as well. Unfortunately not, none of my local 6 stores stock the product, inc two super stores. So quick note of to B and Q, asking for an answer. Guess by the time I get the reply, I will have gone to ebay anyway. Never a dull moment.
