I am looking at roughly forty five feet.
probably abt 30'. i pull a 35' 5th wheel with a crew cab pickup. seems like i've parked the truck 30' in front of the trailer and they picked up. sounds like they have different models now.
there was an antenna that came with it that i could have mounted maybe abt 10' away from the receiver but it wasn't needed. there is a little rubber antenna mounted to the side of the receiver. the receiver is mounted on the extreme left side of my dash. keep in mind, my system is at least 2 yrs old.
when i bought, camping world offered the TST and (i think) the hopkins. from what i remember, the transmitters were the same.
my preference would have been the ones mounted inside the rim but i couldn't find them. sense then, i have read complaints abt not being able to make them fit inside the heavy aluminum rims. if u opt the buy that type, i would ask that question.
what ever u settle on, i would buy the repeater later if needed.
mine stay on as long as they see pressure. have to take them off for them to shut off. i would have liked the one that shut off below a certain speed (like automobiles). couldn't find that kind either back then.
another problem with the screw on ones is if u have a duel wheel set up. the inside one is hard to get to.
