TPMS signal booster

I'm installing a booster because every now and then it drops off, my question is where is the best place on the fifth wheel to put it?

I don't have the repeater but I've seen several posts say they mounted theirs up above the front cargo door or near the pin box overhang.

There's usually 12v close by (inside the cargo bay or at the breakaway switch/7 pin junction box) and it is pretty much out of the way at that location.

Don, I helped a friend install one on his sob. We mounted the unit behind the pin box and tapped power and ground from the trailer plug junction box. The unit is only active when plugged into the truck. Hope this helps.

I have a TST 507 and I mount the monitor as high on the windshield as I can.
