In this Instructable, i will show you how to simply mount a thermometer in your sleeper. I got tired of not knowing the temperature in my sleeper, so i decided to mount a digital termometer in my sleeper, AND a standard "Mercury" thermometer in the cab of the Tractor...this is to obtain an "average" temperature of the whole Tractor.
