Service Bay, Utility Compartment: Temp monitoring

This is so easy to do and works 100% with no installtion required.

And the best part..... Cheap Low $$$

Place an outdoor sending unit in your service wet bay, Utility Compartment and montor the temp from inside. It is so nice to know the utility compartment temp during cold freezing weather. I have two units: One for the park pedestal or outdoor shade area and the other in the service compartment.

Indoor / Outdoor wireless temp gauges.

I know everyone has seen these.

There are so many, Wal*Mart, Radio Shack, Target, etc etc

i am using 3 wired indoor-outdoor temp gauges from harbor freight, about $5 each. 1 in the fwd water tank comp, 1 in the middle water tank comp, and 1 in the aft water service comp.
i found that the fwd comp stays nice and warm with the water heater on either gas or electric, no need for supplemental heat. i use a 100w trouble light in each of the other 2 compartments.

remote temps monitoring

We also have a remote unit in the propane compartment as that is open to the outside air so that we can get fairly realiable outdoor temps reported as well.

Been doing this for years. Also have a remote unit in the fridge to keep track of that temp.
