Where do you mount your EZ Pass?

Hey Gang,

I'm getting some non-reads going through toll booths. I'm wondering where you guys have your transponders mounted? I'm thinking the cabover bunk would present a challenge, so I mounted it much lower on the windshield that I would if I had a regular car.

Did I mount it too low?

Where is yours mounted?

Maybe I should call PA EZPass and get them to switch my interior transponder to one of their bumper mount varieties?

I have mine mounted down low center. Just above dash. pick your own spot with less distraction. Some states are not as forgiven for out of state E Z pass holders. Each state runs their own E Z pass Dept.

NJ wouldn't give me a transponder for a motorhome; PA would. So I went w/ them.

I had the best response by locating it high on the wind shield just like on a car.

I figured if I put it that high, the high speed lanes would miss the transponder b/c of the overhead. No?

My Florida SunPass I mounted low center on the Redhawk. Works every time.
I taped it on first to make sure it would work before sticking it in place permanently. Works on the bridges and the overhead toll readers on the toll ways.

This is about where I have mine too. Except its missing tolls now; I guess I have to call it in.

On my Seneca I keep my pass mounted in the same place as Corky's. Works every time on regular gated lanes and also on Open Road toll readers. I normally keep the pass in my toad when not traveling and move to the MH when traveling and towing. I have extra strips mounted in the Seneca and just move it over. A couple of times I forgot to move it back to the toad when we arrived at a destination that had toll roads in the area. Embarrassing!

I have noticed that occasionally the readers undercount the number of axles when towing car, fortunately I have never been overcharged. Oh well, they get plenty out of us since we have tall vehicles!
