    on our way to cornwall, an unusual bleeping sound started. i have a pressure pro monitor, and an inner rear had dropped to 65psi. shows the system works! on investigation, turned out that the extra weight of the sensor had caused the mounting bracket for the valve extender to work loose, and had loosened the connection. temporary fix with cable ties, tightened all up, and on our way. so, in a way, problem caused by the system, but very reassuring to get an early warning. especially with tyres at over £200 a go.

    Very interesting and at what cost for the system, Ive had an inner tyre destroyed due to lack of observation, so its saved you £200 already:thumb:
