Deathvalley and thermometer
zIn Death valley Ca.the temp one summer was 124. Thanks to the thermometer readings I knew I'd better consume as much food as I could because the refer that had been 42 degrees was now in the 70'sor 80's.
Both Roof Airs were running and it was in the hundreds inside.
I do like having the wireless temp though. You have to change the temp controls on the refer to either keep from freezing things or from warming up too much.
Each year I drive up and down hwy 395 in eastern california. The elevation ranges from 3000 ft to 6000 ft and up to 9000 ft on side trips. because the outside temp can vary so much w/ elevation and temp,the refer will fluxuate just as much. I keep the base station at my dash so I can be aware.
It also will alert you if for some reason the gas goes off so catch it sooner. Sometimes you can get one with an alarm set to ring at what ever temp you want.
When I camped in snowing conditions I would set the alarm for 30 degrees and place sensors near the most vulnerable pipe.
It gave me peace of mind when it never went below 32 degrees
If it did sound off, all I could do is watch them freeze.
Sometimes turning on the heat helped forestall freezing of plumbing in the coach,but it has to be wrapped in compartments or under the coach.
Excuse mispellings or sentence construction,Im exausted composing this and dont have the initiative to go over it.
