outside thermometer

I have a 1988 Excella that has a outside temperture sensing probe/pick up. It has three wires with one broken off at the pick up. Is there a replacement for this pick up. Airstream says no. the digital read out shows a constant -40 f. Thanks!!

There are many aftermarket thermometers available, some wireless. I have a wireless for the house and a wired one in the AS. Oregon brand is one.

Where would be a good place to mount a wireless sensor?

We have a wireless that we just set out on the tongue of the trailer when we're stopped for the night. We put it on the tongue by the hitching stuff so we don't forget it and lose it when we take off. If it's sunny on that part of the trailer, we just move it to a shadier spot. You can get wireless systems with all kinds of different information on them, if you want. Wind and Weather catalog/.com sells all kinds and so does Brookstone.

I just put my wireless sensor in the A frame box behind the propane tanks. Keeps it out of the sun and rain.

Smile Wired ODT sensor location

I used an Oregon brand wired sensor outdoor/indoor unit on my Excella some years back. I was able to ( with some careful searching/lookingto avoid drilling) fish the sensor from the rear bedroom center cabinet down to the rear bumper through the bottom of the rear storage locker near the roadside; through a void where the factory had a gap ( they missed the vulkum caulk which I repaired) in the plywood floor and the base channel that sits on the floor. It was glued just under the rear bumper filler to the left of the roadside frame extension and works with apparently very good accuracy except when the rear of the unit is in direct sunlight like Arizon in summer. I am frugal and did not want to spend the extra coin on a wireless unit.
