I got this wireless temperature station and it has worked amazingly well.

http://www.amazon.com/La-Crosse-Tech...rature+station

It comes with a remote sensor and a wired probe. I put the sensor in the fridge and the probe in the freezer (the wire is attached but doesn't really get in the way.) The main unit then sits on the kitchen counter. I now get 3 temperatures all with the press of the button; the inside of the trailer, the fridge and the freezer. The batteries have lasted over a year. I am very pleased with the results.

Lots of good advice...

I especially like that unit, punkaccountant, and may give it a shot. Time to go shopping!

I also use the low tech version of hanging thermometers with one in the freezer and one in the fridge. I used to move the thermometer from the freezer to the fridge as needed but now like being able to check the temp in either section whenever the door is open to get something.

A couple trips ago I had a problem with ice cream melting and ice cube trays not freezing while the fridge held the proper temp. Maybe the freezer door wasn't shut completely?

That has happened to me several times. If I don't place my ice bucket exactly so, it hits the door shelf and the door doesn't close all of the way.

That would make sense.

With two thermometers I was easily able to see the fridge was working fine while the freezer was somewhat questionable instead of waiting to see what temp the thermometer displays.

[Using 1 thermometer works but having 2 is easier]

I used a probe cooking thermometer this past week. The cord was long enough to sit on top of the fridge while keeping the door closed.
