Just inside the rear engine doors, tapped into the power supply to the compartment light.

Mine is in what would be the washer/dryer closet. Power is from the light in the other closet. I don't have washer/dryer.

I assume you are using sensors on the toad as well as the coach? I just wanted to mention I installed my TST system 5 yrs ago only on coach (43') and no repeater was required.

I use my "TST" on my 38' coach with toad, and need no repeater!

Very accurate, & no issues!

Thanks to all for the quick responses. I do have a toad that I will be adding sensors on. I have read that the repeater was not needed. I guess I can try it without and see how it performs. Coach is a 45 ft Essex.

On some Newmar models - mine - the 7 pin hot lead is only active when the ignition is on. I tapped into that 12 volt at the rear outside of the RV and this way, I am not drawing any battery voltage except when Iím driving.

What is a TST transponder and why do you need one? Is this something new?

What he's calling a transponder, I believe TST calls the repeater. I need on to see my toad sensors behind my 40' DP.

I did exactly the same thing on both of my DPs.

I tried running without the repeater on my 2014 Dutch Star (40), but it often would drop out. TST thought it be remote thermometers I was using, causing the interference. I finally installed the repeater and no further issues.

On mine, I installed it in the engine battery bay at the rear of the coach. I mounted it to the front wall with a self tapping screw. I powered it from the start batteries with a fuse.

Yes. Youíll definitely need the repeater on your Essex.

Our 43í DS absolutely needed it and I mounted it on carpeted wall of the bay just north of the battery bay. I prefer to have it protected; thereís a 12v power block right there.

I mounted the repeater inside the half bath. Tapped into the 12VDC fuse panel inside the overhead cabinet on an empty spade. Works fine on our 45' coach and CR-V toad.
