OK I can do that. What I am working to figure out first is the right system that has the range to reliably pick up the sensors on my toad. I would also prefer not to have to plug it into a cigarette lighter outlet because I have my RVibrake2 remote in one and normally the DW has her cell phone or our Verizon jetpack in the other. You are right in the scheme of things the value most likely outweighs the nominal cost.

I have had great success with Tire Minder.

All are good but all are way better than none.

I would not recommend using the tire slime. It is very corrosive and will eat the rim. I used it on my suburban tire and in the end the rim was scrap it was rusted so bad.

You can go to Walmart and buy a plug kit that consists of a reaming tool, the sticky strips, and a tool to insert them. These work surprisingly well.

Pull the nail/screw and if it leaks use the above to fix, then take it to a shop and have them put a patch on the inside.

If you get the plug tool get the biggest heaviest handle you can find. The number of steel belts in a truck tire will make inserting the reaming tool and plug tool more difficult if you get the light handle.

I had the same dilemma last year...
screw in the tire and so rushed out and bought the tireminder TPS 66 to help, but it has caused me more grief than the screw in the tire !

back to the screw - I was lucky it was in the right place and it was 2 to 2.5 inches LONG...
the pics below show it after I had backed it out 1/2 way and I slowly backed it out waiting for a leak...
but no leak and have been driving on it for 10k miles

If were going to leak it would probably shown that already. I would pull it and by the off chance it does leak drive to a tire shop and have them dismount it and put a small patch inside. The damage a nail does to a tire is inconsequential. I have repaired and retreaded many tires and a small patch will do the trick.

When we were in the shop having a nail pulled out and the tire repaired the fellow in front of us was a trucker with a B-train. They had pulled 3 nails out of 2 tires for him.

His comment was a few more nails and he could finish building the fence around his yard. I offered him our nail but he declined saying it would not take him long to get the additional nails.

Plugging a tire is an emergency measure only! They are not meant for a permanent tire repair.
What is recommended for truck tires is a plug/patch. They patch the hole in the inner liner that actually holds the air pressure, and seals the hole in the tread so water cannot enter and rust the steel belts, which is the main reason for steel belt failures.

I took the Trek to Goodyear Commercial Tire in Hayward, CA this morning. We pulled the nail and it turned out to be a sheet metal screw. No leak. I am good. Thanks you everyone for all the advice.
