Since this us our first trip I was concerned about keeping food in the refrigerator at the proper temperature as I didn't know how well it worked. I bought a digital wireless thermometer and it has proven to be worthwhile. I have found that the temperature can vary quite a bit depending on whether the sun is shining on the refrigerator side, the outside temperature, whether it's running on electricity or gas, etc.

The device was inexpensive and appears to work well. A feature I like is that it keeps track of the temperature range over time until you reset it.

Poppy, I bought one of the same monitors you have as I had a few problems with my fridge. I am really pleased with this most helpful piece of equipment. I have spent lots of dollars for things for my trailers but this is very near the top of my favorites. Last trip out I kept an eye on the fridge temp all the way home. Carried the monitor in the truck to check it out. Worked great, no signal loss.

Smart buy Poppy I use one too. I find my fridge cools faster when started on propane and seems to stay colder as well, so I keep it on propane..... Do you have an on temp gauge - you should. My wife and I have found the oven in our AS very accurate.
Cheers

Hi Mj...

I don't have an oven thermometer. I thought about it but I think my wife has it figured out after a little trial and error - only one batch of chocolate cookies into the trash (heck, I would have eaten 'em but I was too late).

A CAMCO Olympian 5500 gas grill, and plumbing supplies to add a quick disconnect to hook it up to the trailer propane system. All installed and checked out!

I would really love to have some, my father worked for Eastern for 30 years and we flew a lot on passes, but I had no idea you could get the silverware!

I like the idea of the gas checker. Has anyone else tried it.

That's cool! The illustration is really weird though. Either the hand and the device are REALLY BIG or the propane tank is REALLY small. AND if the propane tank is really small, then the lifting handles on top of it won't be of much use.

Several folks have asked about the refrigerator thermometer. I got it at Amazon - Amazon.com: ACU_RITE Refrigerator/Freezer Wireless Digital Thermometer 00986: Kitchen & Dining - around $26.

You don't have to spend that much on one a simple dial type is sufficient and mine has lasted for years and no battery. The same goes for the oven thermometer.
