Some background for context before my actual questions - feel free to skip the preamble if you like :-)
I just had the Voyager rear camera installed on my 27FB at Jackson Center. It's amazing and I love being able to see traffic behind me while on the road. It completely eliminates that huge blind spot behind the trailer. Can't wait to try backing in to a spot with it too...
However - it seems to interfere with my TST TPMS signal. Using them together for the first time, the TST fired up as usual and showed the 4 trailer tire pressures and temps. Then I turned on the camera (they wired it in to the clearance lights) and I noticed the temps and pressures weren't rising on the TST monitor even though we had been on the road for about 30 minutes. Eventually, the TST beeped and shut off.
I changed the sequence (camera first then TST - same result).
I called TST who suggested their 12v
DC repeater - which I had purchased when I bought the system but never installed because it worked fine without it. They said, however, that they have had no other calls of this nature.
I have 2 questions:
1) anyone using a Voyager and TST (or other) TPMS experiencing similar interference problems? If so, what did you do?
2) I'm wondering if I can wire the TST repeater (very thin +/- wires) in to the 7-pin extension I'm using? It seems it would draw next to nothing, but I don't know if screwing it on to the blades with the existing wires would be problematic. If this is doable, the colors are all different. I'm assuming the black and red of the TST repeater (neg / pos) don't mean red and black inside the 7-pin extension...which 2 blades should they connect to? I was going to just wire it to a cigarette lighter adapter ad plug it in the trailer but in the FB, that outlet is in the rear of the trailer (behind the tires) not near the a-frame where I need it.
