Weather station

Post by bearskin47 on Wed Nov 20, 2013 9:12 pm

Has anyone fitted a weather station in a Topaz or similar? if so will a wireless one work? Don't really want to drill any holes through the body for a wire,  and any ideas on where to put the external sensor?

I use a wireless weather station in our Trident, usually putting the outdoor sensor in the awning and it works fine,

Hi there,

We have inside and outside temperature.  Inside in the living area "outside" in the gas locker.

The problem with fitting a "weather station" is the barometric pressure.  As you go up and down hills the pressure fluctuates to such an extent that it will mess up any weather predictions and even on a boat, if we went up or down a load of locks, we had to wait at least a day for the real "trend" to be identified.

In a vehicle it would happen almost every day unless you were touring Holland. hugegrins 

Hope this helps. allthumbz 

Best regards,

Got a similar set up, an indoor/outdoor Lidl job for around a fiver.  Surprising accurate too!
