Was advised by TST to mount the repeater as far to the rear of the trailer as possible. I installed the repeater in my "communications" closet (the BR wall shared with the bathroom). I had no drop outs from the sensors. It was great keeping track of my tires on the Goshen trip.
I have to ask... you were "advised by TST to mount the repeater as far to the rear of the trailer as possible". Don't you mean the tow vehicle not trailer? It only makes sense that the repeater would be mounted somewhere between your TT tires (that have the transmitter sensors) and your Truck (where your receiver is). I mounted my repeater booster in the nose of my Windjammer to assist in getting the signal to my truck cab, I never lose the signal...

My relay is mounted on the power tongue jack and uses the wiring from the assist light. I put a waterproof cover over the toggle switch with a dab of Goop to hold it in place. Works fine.
My TST 507 is almost 2 years old and just now changing the batteries.

Nope.
TST customer support said "the further to the rear of the trailer the better". He said if I had a class A 40 ft pusher, it should be mounted in the engine compartment. In full disclosure, even though I mounted mine inside the 5er, it is still slightly forward of the trailer axles.

Wow, your tireminder system lasted three years?
Mine lasted about 800 miles before I sent them to their deaths in a dumpster somewhere in MT. in that 800 miles, they drove me crazy.

TST507 here as well. Make sure you get the flow through.

I kept my tireminders 3 years and cussed them on every trip.
