Weather Sensors and Displays
« on: November 02, 2017, 01:04:59 PM »
On my last travel trailer I installed a cheap $10 temperature gauge and ran the external probe to the outside. I will be purchasing a new travel trailer and would like to get more than temperature like humidity and wind.

Has anyone installed a weather station on an RV?

I fear most weather sensors were not designed to travel 65 MPH on bumpy roads and would get damaged or worse fly off and hit a vehicle.

Best Regards,

I have seen several .. Usually mounted on a "Ladder buddy" type pole   Do not have one.. Only have temp sendors scattered about my RV.

I velcro my outside wireless transmitter to a fairly protected area on the outside of my RV. I use industrial (strong) velcro. Leave it out there all the time except when washing the RV where I would be directly spraying the transmitter. Haven't lost it yet.
