That's why your going first!

We've gone a similar route with the wireless as well. Has an added benefit of keeping the receiver in the cab when traveling so you can monitor the fridge temp enroute. For shorter trips I usually keep the fridge off so this makes sure I don't come to regret that decision.

X2 - same unit, same rationale for monitoring while on the road. Only takes one instance of spoiled food to learn a rotten lesson.

We, too, have had good luck with the simple, wireless, two sender AcuRite unit, ordered on line, that--while taking batteries, they haven't been replaced in more than a year. We didn't have to worry about access wires for transmitters, can place them anywhere in the freezer and refrigerator spaces, and also keeps a record of high/low temps, just in case you're interested.
With varying conditions (particularly on non-residential type frig units) we feel more confident in the performance by monitoring actual temperatures.
Gotta keep the important stuff cold!
Side note; we take them out of the fridge and leave them on in the fifth. We then have an idea how the temps have ranged while it's in storage.
(AcuRite 00986 Refrigerator/Freezer Wireless Digital Thermometer)
Uusally on sale somewhere; shop around.
