Thumbs up Duo-Therm Improved Visibility

Many months ago I read on this forum or one of the other RV oriented forums that you could easily and effectively improve the illuminationn and resultant visibility of a Duo-Therm thermostat. After being politely prodded by DW, today was the day. Pull off the cover, disconnect plug in power wire, remove mini screws in the 4 corners of the PC board, turn the board over and there are 2 black thumbscrews, when you remove them you have the light bulbs in your hand. If it is covered with a blue tape like boot peel it of and reverse the above sequence and with a total time investment of less than 10 minutes you are done. The results are unbeleivable. Why these blue tape like boots were ever put on is still a mystery to me. Our model thermostat controls 2 roof A/Cs each with heat pump and a single 40,000 BTU LP furnace. This is an '04 Dutch Star pusher. Good luck , Ken.....
