The channel-section frame rails are easy to get to on either side of the front-mounted generator on our Freighliner chassis diesel pusher. I stuck the sender to the inside of the bottom flange on the side away from the gen exhaust pipe. It is a couple of feet away from the genset, protected from the elements and easy to get to when the battery needs to be replaced. No problem receiving the signal with the display mounted ~ 20' away.

I place the transmitter under the bedroom slide and the temp receiver on the dinner...for conversation of course!

We bought one with 3 remote sensors. One sensor is mounted in the outdoor water bay. A second is mounted in the fresh water tank compartment, and the third is mounted in the LP tank compartment at the rear of the coach.

We also have a factory mounted thermometer in the front of the engine compartment just behind the grille. With the front and rear sensors it's easy to get an accurate temperature reading no matter where the sun is. The water compartment sensors allow us to know if we need to turn on the furnace when camping in cold weather.

X3 - I found that if you mount the sensor on the coach it will not read correctly when the sun in on that area.
