Thanks to all for your responses and good ideas. For the moment, I think I'm going to tap the booster into the 12v DC circuit to one of the reading lights in the bedroom, and put it on the shelf above the bed. That places it right inside the front wall of the camper, which is fiberglass rather than aluminum. Since I keep the TT connected to shore power almost all the time, I'm also thinking about a small switch or simple connector so it's not on 24/7/365.

Any reason not to use that power source?

Thanks,

Roger

Kind of a P.S. to this thread. The booster is installed, and the system is completely set up, just for fun. Interesting results when I fired it up on the TT without checking tire pressure first: 3 tires are at 50.2 PSI, and the fourth is at 49.1. Looks like it hardly lost any air pressure during the winter.

We're still not going anywhere with it for about another 5 weeks, but that's one more task out of the way.

Thanks again to all for your valued input.

Roger

I used the "Add a Circuit" fuse taps (from Amazon) to get 12v power from our class c bedroom fuse panel. It works great connecting to the towed boat TPMS sensors from Truck System Technologies.

TST 507 System

I do not have the Tow Master. I have the TST (Truck System Technology) 507 with (14) non-flow through sensors; (6) on the Class C RV and (4) on the boat trailer, (2) on the tow dolly and another (2) on the rear wheels of the Camry being towed (not all at the same time).
I have (2) different monitors for this setup depending on what I am towing, (Boat or Car). I could have avoided buying the second set-up by re-programming the sensors as I moved them from the boat to the tow dolly or car and back. But I did not want the hassle each time and another thing to do when I want to leave town. Labeling/engraving all the sensors and my below diagrams help me keep them all straight.
This system works great and I am very happy with the product and support from TST.

Guessing you were asking me that question. The answer is yes, and it has worked very well for us. We're now nearly through our second season with it. I also got the signal repeater, and did wire it into the 12 supply to one of the reading lights over our bed. The repeater sits on that shelf. I also put an RCA jack into the circuit so I can plug it in only when I'm using it.
