Thanks -- I actually am not running TPMS currently, but I do check for proper inflation 100% of the time before I get on the road. Given that it's a single-axle trailer, is there a chance I wouldn't...

Are you calling me fat?

I think you're calling me fat.

I'll admit I'm maybe 15 lbs overweight, but you should see my trailer tires -- massive!
