Valor TMMS Antenna

Does anyone know the location of the Valor antenna on a 2022 4369 Spartan?

According to Newmar... The TPMS antennas are installed in between the front and rear axles. They are secured with a strong magnet so they can be moved if necessary.

It may be Mounted on the bottom of the axle. You should see the antenna whip hanging down low. Should be on the tag axle but might be on the drive. If they arenít reading, you need to make an appointment with your selling dealer to have a second antenna installed in rear. Also, these have lots of issues still.

This is required by the NHTSA. If your chassis manufacturer cannot resolve it, you need to create a case with the NHTSA. Once enough cases are filed, an investigation will be opened.

The DASH brightness campaign I initiated for the 2019 dutchstar took a little over a year, but they did force Freightliner to make the changes for all coaches.

I am hoping that the 2nd transmitter solves my problem, but if that does not solve my TPMS issue, then I will be starting a campaign for TPMS recalls.

If itís a spartan chassis, the module is in the bay under the drivers window. There is a small black module at the top mounted on the back wall. You can unplug the 4 pin connector and it will not send any data.

redbaron73 ... keep us posted. I am going to NIRVC Atlanta soon and will make sure they know what solved yours out at NIRVC Dallas. No use to re-invent the wheel.

Thanks guys, I just want to locate the antenna so I can occasionally check it. Mine has been flawless so far and Iíve adjusted the base line pressures to correspond with my weighed coach tire pressures. From the Spartan factory theyíre all set at 120 psi.

Just wondering, about your statment "required". This is my first DP motorhome with it built in, other gassers never had it. I do agree if we have it, it should work properly, which mine never has.

The requirement is for the Manufacturers, not the owner or operator.

That being said, it means that we have the power to force it to work properly.
