Talking TPMS Booster Wiring

Any tips on the best location and "ignition hot" circuit for a TPMS booster on a 2016 Anthem 44B? Thanks!

Come off the light in the engine compartment and add a switch to turn it off. Thatís what I did.

I placed mine in the rear closet, powered off the 12 vdc light fixture that was there. It turns off when the house master switch is off.

Anywhere in the back works. We've had hard wired off the chassis batteries and also in the closet.

It works so well though I've seen it in locations further up front as well

We added two: one on the light in the back closet; and one directly to a battery located behind the driver's side steer wheel on our Classic Anthem. We use the Tire Minder system.

I put a cigarette plug on the end of the booster cable and plug it into the cigarette lighter plug on the toad and hang the booster from the rear view mirror. It works great this way.

I have a Tire-SafeGuard TPMS system and wired the booster to the parking/running lights on the trailer. I recently bought a remote antenna with a 25' cable that I plan to mount on the truck rear hitch with the hope of getting even quicker tire readings.

Alligator clips to the start battery, un-clip it at the end of the season. It was going to be temporary to see if it work in that location. It worked so well it became permanent.
