TST Tire Pressure Monitor Hard Wired ?

I am looking at the TST system and I see it has an LI battery and I preffer to hard wire it. Has anyone hard wired it? I will also need the repeater and I have read on the forum that people mount it in the rear closet wired to a 12v source, like a light.

If wired that way would it be hot all of the time? I would be concerned about a constant drain on the batterys.

If this is the way to wire it does anyone wire it so when in storage you can unplug or turn it off?

Any comments would be appriciated

I hard-wired the front monitor and will be getting a repeater for the rear of the MH. The front monitor is hard wired to a second pair of 12 volt wires going to the cig lighter (Thank You Fleetwood). Also, I added an inline 12 volt toggle switch so I can turn on/off the front monitor. I will power the rear using a universal 12v AC adapter that fits the Milli amp rating required by the repeater and plug size. You can order the 12v adapter.

There are two parts. The transmitters can not easily be hard wired. They HAVE to run off battery

The monitor, assuming it has a power plug, can be.. And I believe it does.

Same for the repeater

But the transmitters can not be hard wired cause they move.. You would need to design a slip-ring type system to power them and frankly. that's not going to happen. very bad enviorment for a slip ring system.. Though it might be possible to make a magneto system to re-charge a battery.

Are you sure you need the repeater. I've got a 35' diesel pusher, 6 sensors on the mh and 4 on my jeep liberty toad. I receive signals from all sensors with the short 2" antenna that comes on the receiver. I even pick up the jeep sensors from about 150' away when it is parked away from the mh.

I just spoke with Jerry at alwaysshinnywheelsandrv.com, thats who I am purchasing mine from because they have been reffered to me by several people, because of there customer care. I am getting the 10 tire system and it is $499 and, I believe the 12 tire system is $599. I have a 40' MH so I am also getting the repeater.

Their phone number is 714-642-3646.

Go direct to TST....their price is the same as everywhere else, and they have your purchase info on file so if you have a warranty issue, they are great to deal with
