Alright I bought a Rancho ETC 111000 and wired it all by myself. But now I'm confused as where to put the probe? I'm attaching it to a chest freezer im going to be using as my fermentor. Do I tape it in the inside of the freezer? Or attach it to something around the compressor? Any help would be appreciated?

Tape it to the side of your fermenter about midway from the bottom to the top of the liquid. I use the blue painters tape so it doesn't leave glue everywhere. After it's taped to the side, I tape a folded up hand rag over the probe to help insulate.
