Id prefer to have my gauges in view while Im in my drivers seat.
A little blurry fuel psi off my LP next to my CTS2, fuel psi on the stock fuel filter left of my steering wheel just below the fuel gauge.
Retired truck driver and used to race, I need gauges.
I hear you. My thought was that I would always fill the bags at the same time I was hooking up the trailer(s). So I would be standing right there. I could run the system until I was satisfied and drive away. I don't really need a gauge. Of course if a leak develops, I wouldn't really notice until the bumper was riding on the ground.

If you have a small leak you wont know right away maybe end up damaging the bags.
PSI will drop in the morning cooler temps, then rise as the temps rise.
You can be at 5 psi in the cool mornings then as the temps rise it could go up as much as 10psi+.

Its now up to you, roll the dice or be prepared in advance knowing whats going on at all times.

This was my cv angle before I lowered my truck.



And then after.



I’ve been lucky, my truck has seen salt, calcium, sand, mud...and those torsion bolts backed out no problems with zero lube added. Now those torxs bolts on the rear brake calipers are another story...

Thanks for the pics. I hear you on the rear brakes. I had to put new calipers on mine. Terrible.
