Front roof AC temp sensor location

The front roof AC on my 2006 CC Inspire is running too much and keeping the front of the coach much colder than the thermostat setting. Can anyone tell me where the front temperature sensor is located? I have looked but can't find it and I suspect the location may be the problem. The rear unit works fine and cycles on and off holding the correct temperature, the front keeps running and the thermostat on the control says it is 80 degrees but it is actually about 74.

If it's like my 05 Inspire it is in the housing of the thermostat control.

Mine is under the entertainment center just behind the passenger seat.

Mine is also mounted under the entertainment center cabinet near the passenger seat. A sensor mounted under a little plastic bubble gizmo with holes in it.

The front sensor on the Magna is also in this location near the front passenger seat for reference. Sounds like this is the most common place on these coaches.

On our '04 Inspire Genoa the only sensor I have ever seen is on the curb side just as you enter the bedroom below the TV. I think that is what it is as it's about the diameter of a dime with four holes in the face and two wires coming out of it. Never saw or knew there was one up front nor would I know where to look. I guess the thermostat is the main source of sensing temperature?

Never had an issue with heat or cooling balance so maybe we are just lucky.

I believe each heating/cooling zone has to have it's own temperature sensor. That said, it would depend on the length coach whether it has 2 or 3 zones. My 45 foot Magna has 3 zones.

Thanks, does the housing cover pop off easily and what does the sensor inside there look like?

My covers are held on by two screws. Cover removed reveals a small sensor about the size of a dime with two wires attached.
