The bundle of white wires are most likely negative ground wires and you will probably want to splice your repeater's black wire to that bundle. The repeater's red wire will connect to one of those orange/white wires. You did not indicate whether you wanted to turn the repeater on and off with the switch. At this point you will need a multimeter to determine which of those orange/white wires is always hot and which is the switched wire. If you are not sure how to use the meter to find which is which you may want to seek help. The meter will also verify if the white wires are indeed the negative ground.

You may want to use a T-tap splice https://www.lowes.com/pd/Utilitech-2...tors/999956682 to actually splice the repeater wires to the existing wiring.

Thank you for your help. Apparently my meter is for only house current. I am going buy a multi-meter which can be used on 12V

Have had EEZ RV Products TPMS system, love it, no problems & personally think you are tempting fate not installing one. I personally know of three friends who have had blow outs on their rigs to the tune of $15K IN REPAIRS, so it's a cheap investment and gives you peace of mind as it would also let you know if you had a hot bearing (due to excessive temp rise in tire). BUY IT!

Did you put these on before or after you had the tires balanced? if after, did it affect the balance?

Purchased after I had tires on for some time and did not rebalance. Not sure but would seem to balance with them on, probably a question for your tire shop!

I guess if you didn't see any change in the tires after you added the TPMS system, must not be anything to worry about!
