I put ours on the rack that holds the spare tire , attached it with zip ties and leave it alone til I need to change the battery. It's protected under the spare tire vinyl cover. Works like a charm

Put mine on the frame above the xchock so I do not leave it. It is velcroed to magnetic hide a key. I have not lost it, even when I left it on the frame one time....

I put it in the LP tank storage on my fiver. It wedges behind the LP line against the wall. Sometimes get a cooler reading as its always shaded there. Brother put his in his spare tire cover. But it gets warm when sun hits it. Good question you have here and I've been reading the relies for ideas too. Thanks.

I velcroed mine on the side of the battery box, under the lip of the lid. Two years, no problems and pretty accurate when checking with local weather stations.

Put mine on the back of the spare tire carrier. Out of sun, etc.

I have mine attached to a small utility box I keep on the outside table ( under cover) when I am camping.
