Installed a Weather Station in the 154BH

Finally finished filling in that nook Jayco puts in the 154BH Entertainment Center for a future DVD / stereo player.

Found a great combo in a compact DVD player and Weather Center. The Weather Center keeps an eye on the interior and exterior temperatures as well as the fridge for me. It also has an atomic clock, alarm and more weather trend predictors than I'll ever fool with.

All I had to do was make a face plate for it. I secured it with velcro so I can get behind it easy. I'm happy with it.

Thanks for the kind words havnfun....the faceplate is 1/8th" MDF wrapped in some black leather material I had left over from covering the fridge door. What can I say....I'm CHEAP

Where did you mount the anemometer and wind direction instrument?

Supposedly, you can get that option from the distributor - wind measurement is WAY beyond my tinkering interest - I just opted for the temp / humidity remote sensors.

Hey - if there wasn't an atomic clock built-in... it would just be blinking 12:00 the whole time we were camping
