If you fit the trailer ones to the car tyres do they then read?
If so then it looks like they are too far away from the display when mounted on the trailer. I think you can buy a 'repeater' to mount on the a-frame to extend the range.

Its a pain to set it up, With mine I set the layout to 3 axles, not a trailer as it needs another transmitter if you set it up with a trailer, PITA!
Set up has add sensor or something like that, go to web site

http://www.tyredog.com.au/store/all-products/new-6-wheel-tyre-pressure-monitor-td-2300a-x06-0-to-180-psi.html

and follow instructions on pages 30 & 31.
When pushing reset on relay it is a short push and release, the display should beep and I think there is a light on the relay confirming. Hold the reset down too long and nothing happens, took me an hour to figure that out LOL
Once set up it works a treat, no need to buy extra relays.
Also leave it as it is, the trailer axles don't go into alarm if its not connected.
See how you go.

Peter,

I have a 6 wheel relayless set that works fine with my tug and camper. Sorry I'm not familiar with setting up the relay type installations so I can't help you with push button sequences, etc.

There are some FAQs here. Have you looked at those?

Also, I've found Zylux folk to be very helpful on the phone. Give them a call - numbers are in the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page.

Cheers

In the manual they have the set-up for different display mode can set it up from there to match the layout of the vehicle. Press the mute button and hold for three seconds to get into the display settings and scroll through to select. If you have the right unit should not be a problem. Do you have a repeater, put the batteries in each of the valve units when sitting next to the display and see if they all register, they do have particular sensors for each wheel.

Instructions are super clear.

Just purchased a 6 monitor set after my 4 monitor set retired after 7 years.

Relay reset when you are on the truck screen....not trailer.

Select option one for truck, then single axle for trailer, and non for second trailer.

Relay needs to be mounted outside the car.

Reread instructions again, as they are spot on.

Thanks for this thread.

I have just purchased a six sensor unit and interested to see the pit falls I have coming my way when fitting/ setting up.

All tyres on or in the car so will be interesting to see if the relay picks them up.
