I had to replace my Inawise TPMS (thread 136861). Several of my Club members have the Tyre Dog system and are happy with it so that's what I have bought.
Now I have to mount the relay underneath the vehicle towards the middle at the rear but away from the exhaust pipe and tucked up so that it doesn't get hit by flying rocks etc and without drilling extra holes in the body!. That seem to be a tall order. Has anybody done this on an LC 100 TD and where did you mount it? I have a Kaymar rear bar with integrated towbar which causes a problem as well.
with thanks

What is the relay you are asking about? Not sure what a relay does in the system.

The system I have incorporates a relay (receiver/transmitter) the 'collects' the signals from the tyre sensors and then re-transmits them to the dash unit. My understanding is that it allows for the rear tyres on a mutli tyre/trailer/caravan rig to work more reliably.

My relay / repeater is tucked up behind the rear mudguard.
I don't have a 100 series.
If an auto electrician was to install, holes would be drilled to mount the unit and to hot wire it. Forget about batteries to run it.
A hole or two is better than a $500 tyre and possibly an alloy rim as well.

My relay is simply screwed to the top of the side wing of my storage drawers inside the rear of the vehicle. It is not wired just using batteries which last 'forever'. Replacing the batteries though requires undoing a lot of screws.

I ended up mounting the relay in the cargo area on the back of the rear side panel of the drawer system. It's accessed through the top hatch of the side cavity.
I have hard wired it into a redundant fridge power socket and hard wired the monitor as well. No batteries and only a small amount of cable across the dash.
Not everybody's solution but it is neat and works.
Thanks to those who offered their thoughts.
