Low fuel pressure indicator, fuel pressure gauge or both?

Looking to do either one or both so I can try and avoid a major repair by catching the problem early in my 5.9.

Has anyone installed one of these? I was leaning more towards the indicator since I am not sure where I would mount the gauge. Only reason I would like a gauge is so you'll know well before it's a problem.

I installed a low pressure warning light from Blue Chip Diesels. The pressure switch attached to the fuel fiter housing and a yellow warning light place in the instrument panel. I just had to run a hot wire from the fuse box under the dash through the light and back to the switch that went to ground. Well worth it for peace of mind. I also carry an upgraded lift pump which I need to install at some stage. There are several companys that produce the warning system.

Great information thanks. I think I am going to order the warning light now and do the gauge later. Only plus to the gauge is you can see when it's around 9 so you know it's going out.

I have installed 2 of the dodge low pressure senders kits. They are easy to install. i was told to run no. 16 wire from the sender to the dash, then pick up 12v from an accessory "radio" to provide the 12V. One was on our 98 D 36T, and the other is on our current coach.

I've got both a warning light and a gauge.

Belts and suspenders to help ward off the low-pressure blues.
