Tire Tracker TT600 Signal Booster

I have a 27 FB International Signature and need to install the signal booster for a Tire Tracker TT-600 pressure monitoring system. The booster needs to connect to 12V source (+ and -) and should not be outside as it is really not waterproof. I am wondering if anyone else has installed the booster and if so where and to what 12v power supply?

I mounted my booster and a on/off toggle switch to a junction box, then mounted the box inside the propane tank cover to the lid hinge brace. Routed power wires out bottom of tank cover to battery box with an inline quick disconnect when tank cover has to be removed. Clean install,IMO, and protected from weather. Thought I had pictures, but must have removed from phone. Bringing my AS home from storage tomorrow if more details or pics desired.

I have a 25' front bed queen. I installed the signal booster at the top of the front curb side wing window, which gives the signal booster line of sight contact with the pick up cab. The window glass has a plastic moulding which is secured by screws--attached the signal booster using one of the existing screws.

On my trailer the tool compartment is on the curb side under the queen bed. I bought a rocker switch with an 8' prewired lead on Amazon for a few bucks, and robbed power from the 12 volt supply to the tool compartment light.

I installed the switch on the tool compartment wall to the right and above the tool compartment door--an out of the way position where the switch won't get bumped accidentally.

When I hitch up I turn on the switch. The signal booster has a bright green LED light to indicate power on, which is visible from the outside.

While I had hoped locating the switch in the compartment where I store my hitch accessories would make things easy, I see that blinkety blank LED light when I crawl into bed. Maybe you'll have better luck remembering to turn the switch off upon arriving at your destination!!

Otherwise, the signal booster works great and is fully protected from the weather. Its the operator that's the problem.
