Wiring for Eez-RV-TPMS

I want to put a 12 volt outlet to the left of the drivers seat to run the TPMS monitor. I also need to provide power to the booster at the rear of the coach.
I'll continue to search the forum for information, but in lieu of that I would appreciate any advice.

I put my booster in the bedroom closet and tapped into the closet light. Has worked fine for several years.

I haven't needed a booster, but would wire it into a closet light as mentioned above. For the dash, I added 12 v recep and a double USB to the left side. I just tapped into the convenience center battery terminal for 12v, and ran through a separate fuse block I bought and wired in.

Actually for my EEZ, I have it wired directly to a switched fuse circuit in the dash using a fuse tap, and ran the connector out beside the steering column.
I have it mounted semi-permanently on the dash. Never remove it and just leave it hooked up. Comes on with the key in either run or accessory position.

We put the signal booster in the power cabinet in the half bath. Easy location to find available 12VDC power and the booster works very well from that location. Wired a surface-mount cigarette lighter receptacle in the cabinet (see below; sorry for the sideways orientation) and picked up power from an unused...and fused...tab on the 12VDC power block. Rather than to install a switch, we just plug the booster in when we-re ready to go and pull the plug when we arrive at our destination.

As for mounting the display unit, we put ours more in the center of the dash, on the left side of the in-dash radio. Easy to see and there are power ports nearby. Velcro is your friend here.

Pretty much what I did for the head unit. For the "booster", I wired it to the rear closet light also.

Did you have to add a switch to your setup to avoid power draw?
thanks

The power draw is minimal. No need for a switch. My booster is also in the rear bathroom closet tied into the light.

I did the same as "Chuckster52".....I installed the repeater in the chassis battery bay at the rear of the coach. I just screwed it to the bay wall with a self tapping screw and attached the unit to the engine battery terminal.

The display lasts 60 hours or so before it needs charging so there is no real need to connect it to a power source. 60 hours is a lot of driving.

We hook our repeater up in the rear compartment where the chassis disconnect switch is and mount it in the wall with some velcro. Works great.

I used Velcro tape and attached it to the sun shield on the camera monitor. Usually charge it at night when it gets down to 1-2 bars.

Not really necessary. The EEZ RV monitor runs 60 hrs on a 1-hr charge.

In my coach the wardrobe lights are 6v... the booster needs 12v.
