TST TPMS fit and repeater

Hi - is anyone else using the TST TPMS internal sensors? I'm having them installed right now with the new Michelins. Had to call the factory as they were leaking (failed the soap bubble test) at the rim. I called TST and they talked with the shop manager who has gaskets that solved the problem but was wondering if anyone else had that issue.

Also, I ordered it with the repeater antenna just in case (I can send it back if not needed). If I do need it, is it a matter if connecting the pos/neg wires into the same positions on the 7-blade cable that plugs in to the truck? Would that effectively provide power to the repeater without screwing up anything else? If that's not the solution, how would you recommend making the connection for power?

Thanks!

I don't have the TST but mine does have a repeater. I have mine in the front window of the trailer plugged into a 12 v outlet nearby. When parked I unplug it and put it away.

Thanks. Hasn't thought of that. I'm assuming then that when the umbilical is plugged in those cigarette lighter outlets are live, yes?

As long as you have the Store/Use switch in Store, they'll be live from the batteries.

A quick connector called an SAE connector can be had for a couple bucks. Wire and fuse so that the exposed wire on the SAE connector is negative.. Less likely to spark... Then just unplug at stop

Hmmm. Was hoping to use this while traveling, meaning, the switch is in USE position so the fridge has electric signal for the controls. I guess it's back to connecting to either the battery directly or the 7-pin connector.

Does anyone know whether adding this signal to the 7-blade connector is problematic in any way? It seems like it would carry next to nothing in terms of draw (package doesn't specify).

Thx

I installed my repeater with velcro just below one of my battery doors, ran the wire inside to the battery with a switch so I can turn it on and off when it is not being used. Good signals to all four wheels and a clean installation.
