    TMPS booster wiring.

    I just received the TireTraker TMPS system and it comes with a booster.In the instructions
    they mention a good spot to mount the booster, is in the bedroom of our 5th wheel.
    Where do I find a couple of 12v wires to hook it up in our bedroom?
    I guess also, where would I pickup a couple of 12v wires in the living room
    to hook up a 12v plug .I was surprised there is no 12v plugs anywhere in our
    reflection 5th wheel.

    If it was me I'd try to get to the wiring for one of your front marker lights. That way the booster comes on when you turns your lights on for traveling.

    TMPS booster wiring.

    I would just put it in your front storage and hook it right to the battery

    I put mine right in the battery box on the front of the trailer

    I just mounted and connected mine in the generator compartment. It’s halfway between the display in the truck and the sensors on the trailer tires. The booster came with clamps and I connect those to the house batteries. That way all I have to do when I don’t need the booster, ie parked , I just unhook it.

    I mounted the TPMS signal booster in the front pass-thru storage compartment and connected to 12V DC power at the universal docking station:

    Mine is also in the front pass through. I connected it to the light wire in there and mounted it to the carpeted wall.

    Mine is in the bedroom closet. I took a 12v feed from the light in the top of the closet.

    One more, with a twist. I mounted ours high up inside the front (battery) storage compartment as others have suggested. However I didn't want it needlessly powered all the time per one of the suggestions above so I installed a lighted red switch near the leveling system control panel to interrupt the circuit. When I'm using the leveling system while hooking up or unhooking from the truck, the red switch is in my face and even I can remember to turn it on when I'm towing and turn if off when I'm not.
