Just bought a TST Tire Monitor.  Also included in the package is a "repeater", for boosting the signal.

 

Where are other Casita people mounting their repeaters...?  Or is this something meant for bigger trailers...?

 

Thanks,

Pat,

 

I dont need a repeater on my setup (Durango towing Bigfoot)

Its been working great for nearly 2 years now and maybe 45,000 miles...

Thanks Jim. I'd went ahead and wired it into the electric jack power, and mounted it on the front of that. Looks nice, like a factory installation.

Seems to work ok. Haven't tested it on the road yet, but I have the display unit sitting on my desk and can monitor my tire pressure while I'm at work (yeah, my job really is that boring).

Another trick I use, I only have the tire sensors screwed on fully while towing - I unscrew them when stopped for the night as that is the only way to switch them off. Saves battery.   You will soon learn how to unscrew them without using the security tool.
