Low Tire Pressure

I have a 2015 F-250 with a 1700 pound truck camper on the back and when I was on the New Jersey Turnpike I got a low tire pressure warning.I don't have any way of testing how much psi I have in my tires but just by pressing my my hands against the tires they felt fine but just to be safe I took my truck over to the mechanics shop where you could fill your tires for free. My front tires where a little low but my rear tires where fine so I filled my front tires. When I got on the road again the low tire pressure warning came on again and did not go off for the rest of the trip. Do I need to reset the system, does the warning go off itself or is there still a problem with my tires pressure?

Do you not carry some sort of tire pressure gauge separate from the built-in monitor? Do you not check your own tire pressure before heading out on any sort of lengthy trip?

In planning my long trip that one slipped through the cracks. Since starting this thread I since checked my tires again and didn't put enough air in them. Must remember to take my time doing this stuff when on the road.

All righty then but I'm still asking do you not carry your own tire pressure gauge?

Yes, I do but just bought a new one to replace the one I left at home. Checked them went down, a local gas station and put air in the tires. 75 psi in the front tires and 80 psi in the rear tires although I went a little over on the rear tires. Low air pressure light still on but the gas station was only a mile away so I may need to drive a little more.
