Smile Tire Minder Transmission Signal Booster

Have a White Hawk 26' DSRB w/ 4 TireMinder transmitters and was constantly loosing the signal to the receiver mounted on the windshield of my F-150,so I purchased the booster unit ---- does anyone have a similar/same trlr. w/ the TireMinder & Booster setup that can help me out with the best location to mount the booster? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Tanker,
I bought the TireMinder and had the same results. The booster seems to have solved the problem. I note that they now include it in the package (used to be optional). I got the booster just as we bought the 5th and it's installed in the basement on the door side. I got the 12V from a nearby light fixture.
We've got different TTs but I'd suggest near the front of the trailer and in an enclosed area (like a storage compartment). I think they are "weather proof" but I wanted mine inside.
I really like having the sensors to keep an eye on my pressures. It may be like taking your umbrella, if you do it won't rain.

Thanks RedHorse1,
Just got back home from Bar Harbor,Me. and I'll be installing the booster in the front storage comp't. as per your suggestion. After it's done, I'll drag the unit around for a few miles to test it out. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks again for your help.
