Those bay heaters are paying off!

It was 12 degrees here this morning and I just checked the remote thermometers for the bays. All were around 33 degrees. YAA!

Bay heaters



HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Are your remote thermometers wireless? If so what kind are they and where did you get them? Thanks

I think this is a great idea and I am really going to consider such a system.

About the temperature monitors, if you have three like monitors, how do they know they are different from each other. Is there some kind of channel you have to set so you are getting them to read their remote sensor and not one of the others.

I think three is overkill. We have one in the wet bay. That's all I monitor. Never have had a problem at a low of 15 degrees. Wet bay at 42.

33 degF is not much margin. I'd be happier at 38 to 40 degF.

Thumbs up Joe

Glad your install is working so well. I read you info blog and your discription of your build and the links. Good read and ideas. Think I may try this on my RV for next winter. The DW and I want to use ours later in the season and this may be the ticket.

Thanks for sharing

WOW! How could I have been so dumb! When I installed them I assumed that when the remote sensor was powered up it automatically selected a unique frequency (channel) to communicate with the inside unit. WRONG! I just talked to tech support and they tell me that they're all on the same frequency! The three inside units could be seeing any one of the remote sensors!!!!

The only way this will work is to use three different brands of thermometers! So now I've got to throw away two of the sets and replace them with other brands. I've been in electronics all my life and I can't believe I made that stupid mistake! My bad!

MSHappyCampers, go to EBAY and you can by units with 2, 3, or 4 sensors and 1 base unit that will show all sensors together on 1 screen. I'll be getting the one with 4 sensors being as my fresh tank, wet bay and fresh water pump are all in 3 different basement compartments and that leaves the 4th for the outside temps.

I searched on E-Bay and did not find a multiple remote unit. Can you give us a link? Thanks!

I have one similar to this one with three remote sensors. One in the wet bay, one for outside temperature mounted in the generator open compartment and one in an over head cabinet where I have my internet router and associated equipment.

Thanks Bob! Yep, I found that one and am now looking for the best price on it with two extra remotes!

Hey, don't be so hard on yourself. This is what message forums are for...a second or multiple brains on standby...

Now that you've checked with support, many here will not make that mistake. Money saved!!

Your system will now be perfect with separate monitors. Good work, my friend!

Question Question

Joe - Did you already have 110v outlets in your bays or did you add them? If you added them please explain how you did it and what you used for parts.

Thanks
