Refrigerator Temp monitor

I have seen post where some RV'ers have concerns about their refrig temps mostly when on the road and I know you can turn on the gas or run on inverter or start the gen. but just an FYI I bought this

ACU Rite Refrigerator Freezer Wireless Digital Thermometer 00986 Free Shipping | eBay

and now I can know my temps without opening the door to say look at a thermometer and losing cooling.

So just thought some might be interested. I have no financial gain here it is just info and actually bought mine from diff supplier on EBay.

Thanks, I have the same unit ... I have the receiver (it's a magnetic base) stuck to the faceplate on the cooktop so it's out of the way. I change the bats once per year along with the smoke alarms and outdoor temp tx/rx. Works great ... accurate to 1 degree or so.

We keep a layer of water bottles on the bottom of our freezer compartment. Takes up a couple of inches of space, but keeps the freezer freezing and the bottom cold even when traveling. Use them for cooling bags of drinks and etc. when out and about as well. Works for us and doesn't cost anything extra.

Wow! I wish I had seen that 2 days ago. I just bought a regular wireless thermometer for our fridge at Walmart. The price was reasonable at under $10, but it will monitor only one sensor meaning I can check the fridge OR the freezer.

Also available on Amazon with free Prime shipping.

We use the Acu Rite in the RV and in our garage residential fridge. Works great. We even sent one back for warranty work with no problems.

fridge temp monitors

I've been using Chaney wireless temperature monitors in both my RV and home frig and even for inside/outside air temps. The single display unit shows temps of two sensors, one in freezer and one in main box. The display unit has magnets on the back and i stick it on the oven because that is the nearest magnetic surface that it will stick solidly to when on the road.

These monitors work really great and in 10 yrs of use I've never had one fail. I have a second unit that I use to monitor inside and outside temperatures in my house with one sensor on the kitchen counter and the other outside on the patio. I have no connection with this company--found them on the web.

I still use an older Oregon-Scientific weather forecaster that can monitor up to three additional sensors similar to this one.

BAR388HGA-BK Oregon Scientific Wireless Weather Station and Atomic Clock - Black

I have one sensor in the fridge, one in the freezer and one in my service bay. The base monitors the inside of the coach.

I have a separate Acurite unit which only has one sensor and that has been placed inside my fuel/LPG compartment to monitor the outside temps.
