Tire Pressure Monitor Booster Where?

I purchased a TT500 system with the booster and have a question on the booster as to where to wire into the 12 volt system in the rear of the motorhome. I have a 12 volt plug in the rear tv cabinet that would easily work.

Anyone have a better location in their Winnie. Should I worry about battery drain?

Thanks!

I mounted mine in about the middle of my Minnie Winnie and tapped the power feed for the nearby propane detector.

I put ours in the rear battery compartment with alligator clips/clamps directly to the batteries ... draw is minimal and can be disconnected at any time. Also boosted the signal from the toad monitors.

I wired mine to a cigarette lighter adaptor and plug it into the 12 V outlet in the back.
Well travelling I just plug it in and laid on the bed.
Works great

I mounted mine in the rear closet to the hot side of the switch for the closet light. I donít think it uses enough electricity to drain the batteries.

Just a thought, why would’nt you put a switch inline so you could turn it off?
I’m thinking at the very least,it would last longer.
Just my 2 cents worth

I just did that myself in no small part because mine has a rather bright red L.E.D. that is quite distracting even in the daytime.

Thatís the right way to do it, I was just lazy. Maybe Iíll go back and put a switch on it. The red led doesnít bother me because it is in the closet.

OP here,

I took the suggestion to plug it into the rear 12 volt car plug near the alarm clock and used Velcro to mount it in the upper middle cabinet. When not in use, I store the equipment in an old Garmin bag. I donít like having things plugged in all the time. It is just a quirk of mine.

I put mine on the floor under a kitchen drawer and got the power from the outdoor entertainment unit. I ran a line to the area behind the door that covers the electrical panel for the switch. It's right by the main entrance.
