Have the pressure pro system for coach and toad. Have the repeater but, don't know where to plug it in. It is a 12 volt plug.

I assumed it to be at the back of the coach but, I can't find any outlets. What have others done? Does it plug into the toad itself?

There is a 12V outlet behind the bedroom TV in my Bounder. The TV is a 12V or 120V UNIT. You could wire it direct there or just get a splitter (1 plug to 2 outlets.

I found this on the web site:

Echo Repeater: An alternate to the "Extended Antenna Kit" for improved Monitor receptions by amplifying and transmitting Sensor signals via RF to the Monitor. Use anywhere there is 12v access, i.e. in the motor home rear bedroom, 5th Wheel or towed vehicle. Includes 12v power cord, Telescoping dipole antenna, and Velcro mounting strips.

HI.. you can place the repeater in the tow car if you like. I have 38 Dutch Star my brother has a 42 and he does not use a repeater.

Be safe

In our coach there was no 12 volt outlet, so I spliced into the closet light at the rear of the rig. I purchased a 12 volt receptacle at Radio Shack into which you can plug the repeater.

I only heard about putting the repeater in the tow after doing the above procedure, but that would not be a solution on the few occasions when the tow is not along.

Jerry....your coach is the same as mine...I put mine in the bathroom electrical closet...I shared one of the 12V fuses and I grounded it to the common ground at the top of the block..took about 5 min and works perfectly

I installed the Echo repeater in a bedroom closet. I wired it to the feed for the closet light. Works great. When the coach is in storage it shuts off with the coach battery disconnect.
