    Joining Tx crew

    So Iíve decided to join the Tx crew front and back. The questions grew since seeing the install manual and here they go:
    1) I have two sensors rear. Will I keep both, but use the splitter to tee into the R2 cable? R1-sensor. R2-sensor and Tx.
    2) same question for my front three:
    Will I use the splitter on the F2 sensor and add the Tx? Or simply replace the F2 with a dedicated Tx?
    3) I have a Blue and a Green Tx. Are they the same and only different so that I can piggyback them on one end if I want to?

    1. TX sensor needs it's own direct connection to the R2 ( For Rear) or F2 (For Front). Adapter included is only to connected 2 Regular Sensors to the R1 port. No adapter can be used on the Front ports.

    2. On the front each sensor needs its own port. The TX goes to the F2 port.

    3. For easy diagnostic and reporting we use two different color sensors. This way if there is a TX failure it can identify which one is causing an error easily.

    Appreciate the explanation Tom. I am hoping to get some wires pulled this weekend in order to get my install soon. Of course I will be looking to test ASAP because I will not feel safe without testing.
