transponder location
 
Wheres the best location for a EZpass transponder on class A windshield?

Usually upper center, a few inches below the top reads best. If the windshield has a metallic (usually bronze/gold) tint strip at the top, it will block the signal if mounted behind it.

Considering that the normal "near the top of a car windshield" is near the bottom of our Class A's glass, that's where we have ours mounted. It works fine.

I just keep them (EzPass and Subpass) in the tray on the dash and they work just fine. Considering that the reader is 15 or 20 feet up on a gantry, a foot or so difference inside the vehicle makes no significant difference.

Thanks for all of your responses. Seems like top or bottom of windshield makes no difference.

They can be mounted on the front bumper at the plate or on the windshield. So height doesn't matter as long as it is unobstructed.

We put the I-pass at the bottom of the windshield just to the left of the wiper arm.

Bottom center of the windshield. Works perfectly and is out of view.

I originally had mine at the top of the windshield, and it did not read. Moved it to the bottom of the windshield, and have not had a problem since with it reading properly.

At little off topic, but do you get an EZPass for the motorhome and your toad, or just one to cover both? If you get one for each vehicle, do you just leave the toad one in place while it is being towed by the motorhome?

I have one for the motorhome that includes the toad. I deal with Delaware EZPass, have found them to be the best regarding info and phone response..

Only need one in the Motorhome, none in the toad. Otherwise you will be charged twice.
EZpass counts # of axles.

I just picked up my transponder for our MH, the DOT said to locate it about 1" up from the dashboard, and to put the transponder of the toad into the metalic bag they supply, otherwise I will be charged twice.

New York State ez-pass offers a discount and as far as I know its only good in New York. You give them the required info. and they will apply Auto rates against the Motorhome. You do not need to be a New York resident. The savings a pretty good if you travel the NY. Thruway.
