TPMS for Trailer Tires?

Is anyone using a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) on their boat trailer? Looking for any feedback or recommendations on brand / style.

    Bumping BTT in case anyone using these on trailer may have missed OP.  Interested in getting advance notice of tire going down when picking up nail/etc at highway speed, to allow pull off at exit and change instead of side of highway.  Any of you folks that trailer long distances use these?

    I have a TireMinder for my travel trailer. If I used it on my boat trailer, I would be sure to remove the sensors before dunking. I pull my boat (Hewes) about 150 miles one way and thought about using it for that. Just been looking out the mirrors to check. If you have a multiple axle would not be able to see all tires. I have a repeater, the one with two antennas. Had problem reading with small repeater, the white box. Said tires were too far back. They do have excellent customer service from my experience. No problems since this repeater. Have heard good thing about TST too.

    Just check mine before long trips and visually check them on short trips. 
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you
