Jennifer’s Tip: Adding a Wall Clock to your RV

 Jennifer’s Tip: Adding a Wall Clock to your RV

The one device in our RV we probably use more than any other device or appliance. The wall clock!

Specifically, a very handy wall clock. We use SkyScan Atomic Digital Clock with Indoor and Outdoor Temperature. We got it on Amazon for $38.

The clock inside our RV

There’s an outdoor sensor that Mike mounted on our outside rear door with industrial strength Velcro.  On the inside, he mounted the main display on the wall between the rear bed and the galley, also with Velcro. Both the sensor and the display stay firmly in place, even on bumpy roads.

The display is very easy to read, especially with those three inch time digits.

The outside sensor

We get an inside temperature reading and an outside temperature, plus the time, as well as the day and date.

We like this clock because it is always accurate. That’s because it is self-setting and uses atomic time. Every day around 2 am, it syncs by radio waves to the official US time standard in Fort Collins CO. All you do is select the time zone you are in and the clock automatically adjusts the time and, like it will do on Sunday March 13, automatically sets itself to Daylight Savings Time.

The clock is quite attractive. The one we picked has black frame that matches very nicely with the gray and ebony interior colors of our Roadtrek.
