Is anyone using one on their rig? How do they work? Easy to install? I am thinking about one of the wireless units.

We have a simple one from Lacrosse Technology that works very well. It shows interior and exterior temps and humidity plus the time. Large numbers for these senior eyes to easily read from a distance. I put the outside sensor/sending unit under one of the the slide skirts out of the sun and protected from rain. A set of batteries lasts us the season from April thru October.

The outdoor remote can be located under your cargo boxes, or somewhere inside the cargo box that accesses your LP tank. You can also place it somewhere in the engine compartment, but it'll read warm after pulling off the highway.

No matter..........put them inside a zip-lock plastic bag and you'll be fine.

Bought ours from Farm & Fleet ($40.00). Hung the remote transmitter in the king post of our 5r. Works well (5 day forcast) unless the king post is in the sun (radient heat is 5-8 degrees higher).

I use a Lacrosse one as well...usually set the transmitter in the shade somewhere under the slide. Mine keeps a record of the lowest and highest temp recorded, and I can reset that with a press of a button if I want to monitor temps on a particular trip. Its pretty interesting to see how hot it can get in the trailer in summer time when it's parked at
home in between trips. In the off season when the trailer is stored, I use it at the house to monitor our winter chills...tonight it's reading 15F...and thats a warming trend!
I have had to change the batteries once in 2 years.
