    Has anyone used wireless TPMS or a wired backup camera on their camper/trailer?

    I am looking at this for TPMS: https://www.amazon.com/EEZTire-Tire-Pressure-Monitoring-System/dp/B009BE069Q

    I am looking to have my local shop do a wired backup camera install on my 24' travel trailer (I dont trust wireless going 30+ feet).

    Does anyone have experience with either of these? Any recommendations?

    My wife is awful at helping me back up. She cannot understand that I cannot instantly make it go straight once it is turned. Ends in an argument every time.

    I have witnessed this on many occasions at the MX track. Often ends with shaking heads, gestures, and some yelling.

    Two way radios help.

    Put her in the drivers seat. Problem solved.

    Since making this post, I have pulled my camper with my new Tundra. I barely even need help anymore. I am not sure what makes backing it up so much easier than in my Grand Cherokee. My only guess is visibility from clear line of sites due to having a truck bed rather than SUV?
