If you have been pulling a trailer behind your truck for a few years or more, then you know exactly what can happen if a tire blows out. Let’s face it, many times you don’t even realize it until you see shrapnel flying in the rearview mirror. That is why a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a wise choice for any trailer.
How many times have you seen people along the side of the road making temporary repairs to a trailer because the tire came apart after being run flat? Thanks to Guta, monitoring the pressure of your tires is easier than ever.
The Guta M20 TPMS is designed to provide real-time information about the tire pressure of a vehicle or trailer with the use of tire pressure monitoring sensors (valve stem caps). The Guta TPMS comes with either four or eight sensors, (extra sensors available separately) depending on your needs, and allows you to quickly and easily monitor the tire pressure of up to eight tires.
Adding the Guta monitoring system is beneficial for those pulling a trailer because it gathers data directly from the sensors that replace the valve stem caps. The sensors are then connected via Bluetooth to the monitor mounted in the cab of your truck. Sensors to monitor working distance is up to 36 feet, but a signal repeater is also available. The sensors have 433.92 MHz working frequency and 0-188 psi pressure range.
No matter what climate you reside in, the Guta trailer TPMS has a working temperature range of minus 40 and 176 degrees Fahrenheit. The sensor works well in any weather conditions. Neither sleet, nor rain, nor dead of… Oh wait, that’s someone else’s motto.
The Guta M20 TPMS kit utilizes both solar power and USB charging and can be fast charged without occupying the car cigarette lighter socket and manual charging, to ensure the tire pressure monitoring system is working continuously.
The M20 tire pressure monitoring system has five alarm modes to let you know if any abnormal situations like air pressure loss with a visible and audible alert (LED flashlight and warming beep). These warnings include a fast leak alarm, high/low-pressure alarm (you would set high/low-pressure alarm thresholds by axle), high-temperature alarm, sensor low voltage alarm, and sensor data loss alarm.
The M20’s LCD screen supports smart backlighting with two lighting levels that adjust the brightness automatically. The display can also display eight tires at a time (you monitor up to 10 tires, including two spare tires) and the can display both Fahrenheit and Celsius as well as PSI and BAR.
Finally, the M20 will automatically enter the power-saving mode after 10 minutes of parking or when the monitor power is low. Tire pressure will be continuously transferred to the monitor under sleep mode. Press any key or start the car to awaken the monitor, feel free to check for the real-time tire data while the car is stationary. For the vehicle using the repeater, starting the car allows the monitor to receive the back tire data.
Towing a trailer comes with many risks, but not being able to monitor your tires should not be the cause of any of them. The installation of the Guta trailer TPMS can be done in less than an hour and this inexpensive upgrade should definitely be on your list of must-have items.
