I've located ours under the front window rock guard about 4" down from the top, centered left to right. Attached by heavy duty Velcro - easy to remove for battery change. Stays shaded and out of the rain. Works for me...

After reading these posts and last evenings' off the wall readings I moved my remote sensor from inside my box to between the tanks.

This morning was chilly, so I turned on the trailer's furnace and watched the outside thermometer, thinking the cooling propane tank might make the temperature go down. It didn't. I went outside and felt the tanks; the tank being used was perceptibly cooler than the other one, but just barely. There is about a one-inch air gap between the temperature sensor and each tank, so I guess that's enough to keep a cooling tank from affecting the thermometer. So I'll leave the sensor in its new location.
