For folks that have the TST 507 repeater:

I just received my TST507 repeater because I was losing sensor signals. You folks that are using the repeater, where did you place it? Is it better to have it closer to the sensors or closer to the display?

I was thinking of placing it in my 5ver's basement, but was concerned that it may not receive/send signals as well. Don't want to mount it outside the rig if I don't have to.

What have you guys done?
Thanks in advance,
Mike

I have a 12 volt plug under my truck back seat. So I mounted my repeater to my back window using a double sided adhesive strip. I spliced a small rotary switch in the positive wire so I can easily turn it off and on without having to raise the seat to plug/unplug it.

I mounted mine in the front pass though and connected it to the marker lights. The whole system works much better now.

On refer access grate, using 12v power from inside. Seemed a good place to get power, and near transmitters.

Amazing how good, fresh batteries make those things work a whole lot better!

I have a different brand-Pressure Pro- and the repeater has a 12 volt plug on the end of the cord. I plugged it in to the 12 volt outlet in the bedroom and it works fine.

Thanks for the suggestions folks. I will look into all of them. I already bought some wire and small battery clamps.

Although new, I also wondered about the batteries....I bought 4 new ones.
