I seem to remember someone having a "fix" for the less than optimal (read poor) placement of the thermostat on many newer Monaco products. I've tried several searches here and other forums of IRV2 and other forums but have not found the thread or pictures I remember. I'm pretty sure that this actually happened and is not due to the effects of any mind altering beverages Please help this sufferer of EOS (Early Onset Senility)
Thanks Dan

Are you asking about the placement of the sensors in the room or the display panel?

Rick I'm sorry for the confusion. I'm referring to the white 'stat control with the LCD that is placed HIGH on the display panel. I think I remember some sort of wedge to angle the control downward.

MM, thanks but I looked at that thread several times. I thought that Kev was the original poster with a picture. Maybe I'm just dreaming or maybe it's on another board, but I can't find anything anywhere.

Mama, getting closer!! But still "no joy"! On your coach is it nearly impossible to see the LCD screen ie. the temp. without standing on your tippy toes or jumping up and down?
Thanks, Dan

If the T'stat is mounted too high to easily see, you can tilt it down to get a better viewing angle. You can do this by taking it off the wal and mount it with a shim strip across the back top and none at the bottom. I's start with about an 1/8" and work up in 1/8" increment until you find a good angle. Then to make it look better, cut an oak or maple block stained to match the interior and cut on a taper, remount the t'stat again.

I am about 6' tall, so I can see the two-zone thermostat on my 06' Diplomat OK, but I have a complaint with its temperature regulation abilities.

When the coach gets too cold, the heat comes on. Then, after the coach gets too hot, the heat goes off. This "too extreme" profile occurs in both zones and actualy for both heat and AC operation. I would like to change the sensitivity (hysterisis) of the thermostat that regulates when it switches on and off, but I do not know if such an adjustment exists or how to make it.

Thanks very much for any suggestions anyone might have.

Dave

Thx Ken. I thought it would be that simple, but was kinda afraid to start prying on the stat. I'm still wondering where I remember a thread relating to this though. It's one of those drive you nuts kind of thing...know what I mean?
Thanks, Dan

Most T'stats have a cover that simply pop off and pop back on. I am not sure where the seam is on yours or is the whole front the cover. In any case, once the front cover is off, there should be two screws that have the base anchored. Loosen them and apply shims as needed.

Some LCD displays have an adjustment that says intensity or brightness. By adjusting this you can get it where it can be seen at different angles.

Can you post a photo of the t'stat?

Ken
