I set ours on top of the passenger front tire. It is out of the sun where we are. When traveling I just keep it inside.

That's where we put ours, too. I've only had to buy one replacement due to smashing the old when the slide came in...and I forgot to read the check list that says in caps, "TEMP REMOTE."

Not sure of the brand, but mine is in the LPG compartment. Works well except while under way. Then it reads very hot. My compartment is right behind right front tire and engine heat in there is amazing.

I used sticky back velcro to fasten the sensor to the inside of the trailer skirting next to the entry door. There is usually a lip that the sensor can rest on velcro has held for thousands of miles.

Our friends use to place theirs on top of one of their tires when camping. They can now tell us what the weather is like in Yosemite whenever we need to know.

I have an Oregon Scientific with three channels. One in the fridge, one in the propane compartment and one next to the door handle.

Too bad you can't get it remotely on your PC. You probably already know that you can enter their zip code at most of the weather sites and get the current weather.
