tire pressure monitor??

so two weeks in to owning the armada i have been noticing that my tire pressure has slowly fallen from approx 40psi on all to approx 35psi on all. first question is, when will i get a warning of low pressure? what PSI will trigger this? Also, what PSI should I be running at? Is it normal to lose that much pressure that fast? seems odd.

If you have had a significant drop in outdoor temps the tire pressure will reflect that; it is normal.
The system will usually alarm when the pressure drops much below 35 PSI.

does anyone notice a difference in MPG with different PSI? What is optimal PSI for stock rollers?

35-37 seems best for stock tires.

Guys, I have never seen nitrogen available here on the east coast, specifically south Jersey, to fill tires!

Anyone in Jersey seen this or is this just a west coast thang?
