I did look for topics on this but no go.

Where do I put my ezpass on a class A. The bottom of front window is fairly high up...good enough?

I don't know why it wouldn't work there, unlike my class C, mounted the pass at the top of the windshield, worked in most places but did have a few where it wouldn't read, like once in PA, and always had a problem on NY State Thruway, (I-90), so I now have the license plate mounted one, no problem since.

Some states/providers offer what's called a Bumper/License plate mounted EZPass. It's basically a snickers size plastic unit that can be screwed to a bumper or a license plate. For most RV's with windshields that have no overhead obstruction, regular EZPass units work fine. For RV's with overhead obstructions, the windshield units may have issues. The amount and frequency of issues probably are not worth the added potential for the EZPass transponder to get stolen (held on by screws in plastic tabs that can easily be broken off) when out in the open.

I have the exterior that is mounted up near the clearance lights. This gives me no obstruction (highest clearest area on my RV's front) and never had any issue with it being read. Never had a missed toll or red light since mounting it high and forward.

Top center driver's side (split windshield). Been there since 2011 with no violations and I usually hit a toll at least once a year for any number of the bridge tunnels in the Norfolk Virginia area.

I mounted our E-ZPass transducer on the windshield about where a rear view mirror would be on our Class A in 2013. Haven't had any problems using it multiple times each year...
