No, but where did you find the others.

Look in the half bath at the base of the vanity. In the toe kick there is a large metal grill. Look in there. Right where you would expect it to be!
They put it there to contol the floor heat but sure makes it tuff on the air conditioner especially if you keep the bathroom door closed!

On the bathroom floor? In our Aspire RBQ, it's in the kitchen on the wall between kitchen counter and washer/dryer. Just at counter height. Only problem I have with that location is that I have to really watch my temperature settings. I keep my coffee pot - with it's constantly hot reservoir of water - on the counter right beside the sensor. Have to keep the thermostat for #2 set substantially higher than #1 and 3 because of that. #1 is up on the side of the trim box directly over from the passenger's seat reading light. #3 is on the bedroom wall to the left of the door leading to the back bathroom.

Anthem DEQ, front is on the back of the wood riser beside passenger chair about a foot from ceiling. Area 3 is on the front of the slide about 6" to the right and about 2/3rds of the way up the wall from the installed wall design.

Baffled on area 2. On the other hand, it is not clear to me how area 2 works for heat, and don't think right now I'm ready to be enlightened.

Ah... So that's what those things are. On my Anthem DLQ, the front and bedroom sensors are in the same places as yours. Not sure where the other is but I will find it when I get the coach back from the shop.

Well I think that is them, based on the other posts, Tom, but heck, what do I know.

I have a question into Entegra as to how they expect the heat pump to heat properly (a/c to cool) when the air is blown in from the ceiling. For heating purposes, the other two sensors are 1/2 way up the wall, which makes sense, but not to put the sensor for #2 on the floor, it also needs to be 1/2 way up wall. We'll see if they will put one in while still under warranty.

On the Aspire DEQ the #2 sensor in in the vent on the floor inside the cold air return under the hutch. Not the best place. We are having ours moved up that hutch wall to about 50" from the floor. We could not regulate the heat/cooling from the current location. Hence the move.

Could you explain how/where you are running the wire. Are you running it inside the hutch on the right side. I'd bet Anthem DEQ is in the same place. May also explain why mid-coach electric heating is so poor using the heat pump???

I'm replying for Diane. Our rig is still at Lazy Days, but my understanding is that the wire will be run on the inside of the hutch and the sensor will be at household A/C sensor height on the inside wall by the toilet door. Might be more difficult on rigs with a fireplace amidships.

relocating thermostat

Lazy Days suggested relocating the #2 thermostat by running the wire up the interior of the hutch on the DEQ and then coming through the wall of the hutch and mounting it on the exterior wall of the hutch at normal thermostat height. They are also going to insulate behind the #1 thermostat above the front door to decrease the amount of heat from the electronics in the panel above the door. #1 thermostat's extra heat from the electronics makes it like a meat locker sometimes in its attempt to counteract the heat from the electronics when the system is on a/c. They couldn't figure out a way to lower the sensor down to normal height and they think this will be sufficient.

Hope this is a sufficient explanation.
