If yours are similar to mine there should be a tiny black plastic plug that you remove from the back, then it will read Fahrenheit.

I installed the style with the large numerical readout ( http://ebay.com/itm/Digital-Thermome...-/110953483704 ) and they seem like a much better unit, plus they are much easier to read. They have been working great.

I ordered the same ones klspahr did in post #73. l liked the larger readout. They were $10 each. I did verify the 12vdc was in the same locations on the control circuit board as was in the photos.

I did figure out to pull the caps to get Fahrenheit. One of them is reading real low, the other is fine. I'll have China replace it. I ordered two of the large displays from Cali for $8 each to replace the ones I have.

I'm going to tap to the circuit board as well. It will make it easier to remove the panel in the future.

We bought a wireless thermostat. It has 2 monitors, freezer and fridge, that clip. For the outside monitor, it has magnets. It sticks to the stove hood. It can be set for alarms on both. No wires. RVing now and at the pool. If interested can post name of device later. I think it was on Amazon. Maybe $50.

I used an indoor-outdoor wireless thermometer . I place the small sending unit in the fridge and then place the receiver in my Tow Vehicle. This way I can monitor the temp while traveling. Works great. Just keep fresh batteries.
