any thoughts on how to protect it in between set ups?


When transporting my RV sensor, in the "basement" of the RV, I sandwich the sensor unit between 2 old FOAM RUBBER bed pillows within an old (60s-70s) Samsonite, hard side, overnighter size, suitcase.

I could drop it off a building and not hurt it.

I remove the 4 AA cells unless the sensor is actually on the pole.

The home sensor does not leave the pole in the back yard.

I have been using the Accurite Pro (Temp/Wind speed/Baro) now for over 4 years on a removable pole arrangement as Healeyman did with his Portable Weather Station.

The Pro model (without rain sensor) is light and works very well on my aluminium telescoping pole that I mount several feet above the roof of our coach. It has worked flawlessly and it's accuracy appears to be very consistent.

The problem with those all in one you cant site them properly. The preferred but not always achievable is the temp/hum sensor 5' over grass 30' away from any building or road way, areometer 30' in the air above buildings, and the rain gauge with a clear view of the sky protected from the wind Weather station info
