Interior/refer temp readout

How do you like my new digital furnace/refer monitor system? I figured I would go high tech. The upper reading is the refer temp with the bottom read interior temp. Works good.

Good Idea for monitoring the refer temp. but for about 20 bucks you would be better served to change your analog thermostat to a digital one, here's some links:

Thought about but was waiting for someone to post a wiring diagram.
Thanks for the links

It's warmer in your refrigerator than in the trailer? Hmmm.

Interesting idea, thanks! I'm a little surprised the wireless signal gets through the refrigerator walls but obviously it does!

I have a similar setup but the sensor is in the water connection center so I can monitor temperature there during freezing weather. And I have another with the sensor above the front locker door, under the overhang. That's for outside temperature but usually reads a few degrees high, probably because of warm air trapped under the overhang (I guess).

I like your idea.

I think the fridge was a little warmer because I had the door open a few times to dry it out a little so the light in there must be jacking up the temp.. It is off and I have a dehumidifier going to keep the moister down in the rig. We are wanting to get out this fall yet so I haven't blown out the water lines. But I still keep the moss down from inside with the dehumidifier!
