2021 Anthem TPMS antenna location

Lots of posts but I donít recall seeing this issue.

TPMS reading drops out on some rear wheels. Spartan says it may be caused by antenna blocked and needs to be relocated.

Anyone experienced this? Where is the antenna original location and where does it work better?

I'll be looking forward to the answer. My second Valor TMPS and neither one of them are working out of the box. That excuse has been given since the 2019 model. Here is Don Rigby the head person for the TPMS phone number. 734-634-3278. Be interesting what he has to say for the 21 where that was suppose to be fixed.
My 21 is worse than the 19 was for readings.

My 21 has never worked once. Nirvc has tried 3 times with no luck. They have replaced the antenna, cables, connectors and still nothing.

On the bright side my tst system works all the time without fail. I just donít understand how these venders canít seem to manufacture products that work. Letís face it, tmps have been around a long time with very little issues.

This is so disappointing. pay 500k for a coach you'd expect the fancy electronics to work. Looks like I will be expanding my TST senders

Bruce, not all is lost. Mine has performed flawlessly.

J.H. out of curiosity what do you have your tire pressure set at? After a 4 corner weight at NIRVC, the fronts are 110, the rears 90 psi. I had amber high pressure warning lights all the way home from Atlanta as soon as the pavement heated up.

My Anthem shows over pressure a lot after about 40 min of driving. I ignore it because the whole Tpms system seems to be inaccurate and flawed.

We are in a '20 Anthem as our signature indicates, so it's not your 21, however, it would'nt surprise me if your Valor TPMS antenna is still in the same location as ours. Ours is mounted using a magnetic disk from which the antenna wire hangs down vertically and is stuck to a frame or suspension member centered between the front wheels. If I look under the coach from the front, I can see the wire hanging down.

The aggravating part is the High Pressure Warning light keeps dominating the screen on the digital dash and defaulting to the information screen. Paid a lot of money for that feature only to have it taken over by a non functioning TPMS. If there was a way to turn the TPMS off I would also ignore it.

It is more than annoying and aggravating.

Chuck, my front is 115, drive 90, tag 100. I’ve never had an amber high pressure. I just drove 250 miles and my front was 132, drive 95-96, tag 112.
I have seen the fronts close to 140 and tags close to 120.

Thank you, I know you are heavier than I am being full time. I will be calling Don Rigby but that goes nowhere except you own an expensive DIY kit. Thanks for the feedback. I wonder why one coach will come off the line setup correctly and the next 3 are DIY kits?

Chuck, I have the same issue one for sure and sometimes two of the drive tires show high as soon as they hit 101 on the pressure. I start out at 90 on the drives. The front has hit as high as 135 psi and no high warning notification. I too would like to get rid of the annoying high pressure alert.

I think the problem is with the transmitter antenna from the rear. Any idea where that is located?
