Tire Minder Caddy

I wanted a place to store my tire minder transmitters when the MH was in storage and be locked up inside. First attempt I used painters tape with the location marked on them and a plastic bag which worked but was clumsy. Than I came up with this, 10 short valve stems mounted to a pice of lexan in the shape of the MH & toad. Simple on and off and a place to store the valve stem covers.

Made a wooden box for my 4 sensors with the front of the box as the front of the 5er and place the sensors in the box the same position as on the trailer. Also marked the sensor with white paint to designate their position. Also made a couple of special allen wrench tools and a storage compartment for spare batteries.

I had an extra Plano tackle box and it worked out pretty well.

The issue appears to be theft prevention. They are easy to unscrew and walk away with.

Also battery life, I believe. The sensors transmit whenever pressurized, as in on the wheel. Taking them off stops transmission, lengthens battery life.
