Be aware that this is NOT the best for viewing on a consistent basis as the steering wheel does obscure your view to some degree.

But, as they are mounted with velcro you can move them if needed for better viewing when testing and returned after your done testing.

my SCII is viewable on top of the steering wheel in the 2 lower steering wheel tilt positions. my TST is viewable through the spoke when the steering wheel is in the straight ahead position.
i can see my speedometer through the spokes better than in the picture.

Has anyone hardwired the power supply for their TPMS? If so, Could you tell how you did it? My electrical knowledge is very limited.

My unit came with a female cig lighter plug which i hardwired under the dash to the same source that powers the backup monitor and the "coach heater blower switch".
i used a "splice lock" quick tap from napa for the +12v and there was a ground stud handy under the dashboard. this circuit is hot only when the ignition switch is on.
i have disconnected the coach heater since it was inoperative and kept blowing fuses.

Thanks Dan, I am having trouble finding a splice tap, but I haven't been to Napa yet. I want to mount my TST monitor on the left of the steering wheel and there is a fuse box nearby. Has anyone tried add-a-circuit? I saw it in the auto parts store today and it looked like an easy way to connect any 12V accessary that draws under 10 amps, but it has only one wire to connect to and I was wondering where to connect the ground?

add a circuit should work fine.
i am planning on using one of those to install fog lights on my moho. if i remember correctly, the ground stud that i used is near the back of the radio under the dash. you may have to add some extra wire to use this stud.

I used the "hot" lead running to the ignition switch...

wrapped the TPMS wire around the spade on the switch and pushed the connector on over it.

I like your setup on your dash. So, hows that wheel temp. while driving to Hawaii?

Mythplaced, excuse my lack of knowledge, but their are two wires on the power cord for the TST monitor (red/white). If I wrap the red on the hot lead for the ignition switch, where did you connect the white (ground?)

Ground to anyplace that has a direct connection to the chassis....

When I programmed in my sensor codes, I did it backwards so the Large figure is the Motorhome and the small figure is the toad, to me it looked better and made it more realistic looking. I could not abide with that little box with duals pulling the big box with only 4 tires. Just a thought.

Have a great day Happy trails Bert

Howdy,

I've been reading about TPMS's a little bit since we lost air in a trailer tire coming home the other day. Caught it in the mirror and got it changed before it blew, but it underscored that I'd like to have some type of monitor.

Have any of these units been on the market long enough that longer term (five years or so) reliability has been evaluated? On the motorhome we just put a deposit on, it looks like one of these would pay for itself the first time it prevented a blowout, but cheaper is better if reliability is the same...

Do they all work with sensors on the valve stems? Any issues with adding weight to the valve stem on 22.5 rims?

Edit: One more question... I'd consider putting sensors on my race trailer and also the tow dolly... Can the system handle not having some of its sensors in range gracefully, or would I need to reprogram it for each case whenever I change?

Thanks!

Mark
