I have had this (link below) particular temperature clock for 6 years with no problems. The sensor comes with a cradle and the base comes off the clock. Powered by 5 "AAA" batteries....

Something like this should work fine....

Can you read the monitor while driving your truck?

Absolutely..... both clock and wireless temperature transmitter are battery powered. Stick velco tape on the back of the clock and transmitter and place them anywhere you want. Move the clock from house to truck (stick it on the dash) to camper (stick it on a wall)....move the wireless temperature transmitter from fridge to outside of TT to outside your home (mine works best kept out of direct sunlight or rain)

Good luck....

I performed a test that might interest you.

My temperature sensor / clock (shown in the link above and in the accompanying photos) is 433Mhz. I installed the sensor in the TT fridge and checked wireless strength. At over 35' distance from the fridge - as well as through the fridge walls, campers walls, one exterior house wall and one interior house wall...I could still get signal from the wireless temperature transmitter in the fridge. (the fridge was not turned on)
