Temperature gauges for in and out of the TT. It's next to the bed so you can see instantly what's going on with the fridge, freezer, outside and inside. I can also pull out the monitor and take it inside the house and hours before we travel I can get the fridge/freezer to the right temperature (to store our food) without having to come inside the TT to check it each time. Love this device.

I imagine the wireless probes and the unit itself all take batteries? What's the brand/model #?

Yup.. Here is Colorado it's yellow jackets and wasps. I've owned this trailer since 4/7 and already smashed a small nest in the hitch...

This weekend is "bug block 2016" weekend for me.

Yes. But the batteries will last you over a year. Very low consumption. That's perfect when you do the preperation each spring.. just put another set in all the probes and monitor.

I got it off Amazon. Ambient weather monitor Model # WS-10.
This version displays the first 4 probes large and doesn't rotate through to other probes. I only needed 4 so it was perfect for me but this unit does up to 8 probes.

How does it attach? I'm guessing adhesive strips of some sort? I'm wondering how that will hold in the fridge or freezer? Where did you attach it on the exterior of the trailer? I'd be worried about it failing off due to travel or weather.

The fridge and freezer just use quality double sided velcro but just make sure it's resting vertically on one of the trays away from the cooling elements (to give a average reading). The velcro will just take any lateral movements and not take the weight of the probe as its already resting on one of the trays etc. Hope that makes sense.

For the outside I mounted it to the plastic battery housing but again resting on the metal bars. As a double precaution I'm going to put two small holes in the battery housing cover and zap strap it as I don't want to lose the probe.

Placing it there, it's away from direct sunlight and most of the rain too.

Hope that helps you.

Matrix !!!!

I think your tech obsession has gotten out of control, you need to channel it in a useful way !! Like , a gizmo that removes the can of beer from the cooler, opens it, and places it in your hand without getting up from your chair, Getting up disturbs the wildlife my wife tries to attract with all her feeders at the campsite !!!

Lol. You're probably right. 😆
I'm just trying to get as much done before we go away on the maiden voyage in 2 weeks.

Well... we kinda camped in the driveway at the weekend to check out a few things. Was awesome! Does that count?

Mr TheMatrix, I heard this on CarTalk this weekend, and thought of you. It was a letter sent to them with some allegedly true answers to test questions from kids.

Q. Explain one of the processes by which water can be made safe to drink.
A. Flirtation makes water safe to drink because it removes large pollutants like grit, sand, dead sheep and canoeists.

Installed water leak detectors.

This gives me some peace of mind and was easy to install. No brainer not to do this. Got 4 of these on ebay. Installed 3.

I have 4 around my home too for over a year. Great devices and only changed batteries once.

I got some industrial strength velcro and attached them to the walls where ever there was a potential for a leak.

No need for leak detectors. If you have a leak, trust me, you're gonna know it!
