I have a SkyScan digital clock that displays inside and outside temperature. After trying to find a location, when parked, that the outside transmitter unit could sense air temperature without being in direct sun any part of the day, I decided to place it in a wheel well on top of the tire. That worked OK until I left on a trip and forgot it was there. Obviously, it didnâ€™t survive being rolled over by several tons.
I needed a better location for the replacement unit that I wouldnâ€™t have to always tend to. The perfect place turned out to be in the channel forming the bottom of the slide opening. Thereâ€™s plenty of room so the transmitter and the slide donâ€™t interfere with each other, and the inherent shape of the channel keeps the unit in place.
A small plastic bag with a zipper protects it from moisture, and it never needs tending except for an occasional battery change.
