I have one mounted in the Batt compartment, which is located mid-front on the driver side in my coach. It also has open air to the ground. It is far from the gen and the engine. The temp reading is very close to dash outside temp reading.

Gotta love iRV2.......

I have an '02 Dutch Star with the optional temp/compass inside rearview mirror.......(stupid)

The compass works but not the outside temperature.

I do the small weather station thing with a separate outside temp/humidity sensor. I hang the weather station on the cabinet next to the thermometer with Command hangers

Works great! If you remember to retrieve the sensor when "moving-on"!

Well.......I don't.

At first I "hung" it under the awning to try and get a true temp reading. Forgot it was there - lost.

With my next one I placed the sensor on the drivers mirror - I won't miss it there - BS!

I like the propane tank compartment idea............so for my next trick........

You get the picture...........

Have a great Easter Weekend......

I have a wireless that I find especially useful for winter camping. I keep it in the wet bay.

I put the outside sensor under the slide just inside the wall in the pocket. Stays dry and never lose it. I stuck it in place with Velcro to keep it in place

I have one in my wet bay and one in my freezer. Both are different brands from Wally World and appear to be accurate.

I have the Accurite indoor/outdoor unit with the remote sensor. I too worried about leaving the sensor until I got a small carabiner and attached it to the remote sensor. Now when we stop, I hook the carabiner to the power pedestal door latch (the one with a hole in it for securing the electric door flap closed.

When we go to leave, I have to take off the carabiner to get the pedestal door open so I can disconnect the power cord.

To monitor temperatures I use a wireless thermometer with 3 remote senors, (1 out side in the LP tank bay, 1 in the water bay and 1 in the refrigerator)
