Cisco stacked switches monitoring

I have 2 cisco 3750G switches that are stacked.  I am using PRTG to monitor my network, does anyone know how I can monitor the two cisco swithces so I can be notified if one of them dies?  

Since they both only have 1 IP, I'm not sure how to monitor them if one dies.  I have configured SNMP, and am monitoring some sensors on them.

try monitoring this OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.500.1.2.1.1.6

This monitors the status of a switch in the stack for any Cisco stack switch

So I'm using PRTG for monitoring. Under adding a device, I am using SNMP library, and then there's a cisco interfaces oid from a list for me to choose from.

I don't see a place where I can copy and paste the number you referenced.  Can you be more specific where to add that OID number?

I haven't used PRTG specifically. Other tools were available when I need to do something like this. I dug this up and think it would be helpful to you:
