Where did you mount your TPMS display?

Just bought the EEZ RV TPMS and am trying to decide where to mount my display.
I have a 2009 34Y Journey and am thinking about the left side near the upper A/C vent (above the wiper and headlight switches). My only concern is aesthetics.
I can see it very clearly when looking forward, but it does slightly block the vent.
For me, I never use the dash A/C, so for what little it blocks, isn't a concern, I just like a clutter free dash without a bunch of "stuff" everywhere.
My other location is on the side where the switches are for the visor, above the Winnebago placard. The bad is, that it is not in my field of view, but there are warnings and bells for anything out of parameters...
Anyone with advice or pics?
Thanks, Ricky

You will learn that you don't have to look at it, it will beep and flash if there is a problem. Be careful that you don't put it near you transmission switches in case it falls off, you don't want it to bump the "R" button while driving down the road.

I just lay mine on the center counsel. No need to see it all the time. The alarm will sound should it need attention.

Double sticky Velcro will let you place it anywhere. Mine is on the dash to the right of center so it's visible, however, the alarm/flashing lights will let you know there is a problem I prefer to be able to see which tire is supposedly having the issue.

Thanks for the replies.
If it goes on the side, it will be further back from the transmission buttons, yes, reverse at highway speeds will ruin your day !!!!
I am a gadget kind of guy and do like buttons and switches, just needs to be clean. I do like the idea of being able to see it while driving (looking forward)..
What about undermounting it on the overhead cabinet? Still looking for suggestions.
Thanks..

I have my TPMS monitor mounted exactly where you mentioned first, I.e. above the light and wiper switches on a cell phone mount.
I have a 2010 34Y.

No need to worry about shifting into reverse at highway speed. The Allison will not shift into reverse above engine idling RPM's; nor will it downshift if it would cause the engine to over-rev, no matter what you do.(it's in the manual)
My monitor is mounted on the dash-top with sticky tape. I want it where I may read tire pressures and temperatures any time I choose.

Heck, I just stuck mine on the front driver's side window using the provided suction mount. That way it is out of the way but still easily visible if it beeps.

Thanks for all of the input...
I decided to put it above the wiper/light switches.
I hope it isn't too bright for night time.. I think there is a way to turn off the backlighting.



Hope it is only there for looks and doesn't make a sound..

Thanks again, Ricky
