Thanks for this advice! The sensor will certainly have to be a remote, probably wired.

Did I miss it? Is there a preferred sensor that folks are using?

I have had the front belly pan of our 36RL completely off. It goes back to about the wheels, than the rear pan takes over. It was no big deal, but took a little time. Used a drill and socket. Some kind of jack of block to help hold it up might help, but I didn't use anything.

I just ordered one off Amazon that received 4.5 stars on 150 reviews. Six foot cable, so I'll mount the sensor under or near the FW tank, and the alarm in the upper wall of the garage (or basement-haven't decided what to call it yet).

Those tanks may sweat a little and drip, and those sensors are sensative. Dont think I would mount too close to the tank or youmight spend some sleepless nights wondering after you get an alarm.

Well if I sweat and drip, why wouldn't the tanks!?! Great point! Place low, but not too close. And be prepared to relocate the sensor, after calming down the neighbors. Got it! Thanks for a insightful analysis.

hahaha can't pull a sweat myself in this Colorado climate, but I've woke up on travel a few times and could see the aluminum substructure of my redwood traced on the outside with water droplets as a result of the dew on the outside.
