I really think you may be asking for headaches that are not necessary.

Have to agree with Bobby on this one.

If the tire is round - the pressure is likely good. If the tire is squished down on one side, likely not good.

Be safe

Great idea. Have considered it myself. And my tires are round.

I have thought of one too. With my double axle trailer, there is always the chance of blowing a tire and not knowing it until I cause some damage to the trailer or boat.

Might check out some RV forums, they are pretty popular for the RV guys but most of those don't or won't get dunked at the ramps like on boat wheels.

I ended up going with the TST 510. They must be pretty popular,there is a 3 week wait.

I've looked at those the last 3-4 years, haven't bought one yet, but will probably go with a system that uses internal (inside the tire) sensors, rather than the ones that screw-on the valve stems.
