Controlling the AC

I have a 2017 Holiday Rambler Vacationer . When it is hot outside and I am running the two AC I have a time trying to regulate the front one . The sensor is located on the side of the cabinet above the drivers seat. I sometimes have to set thermostat at 85 degrees for it to cycle off. It is freezing us out. I have looked and don't see any other place to install the sensor. I am sure it is doing this because the outside wall of the motor home is getting warm and transfers the heat to the cabinet and that is where the sensor is located. Wondering if any of the rest of you are having this problem and if you found a cure for it.

Depending on the design of the sensor, I've seen where folks unscrew the two screws holding the sensor to the wall and pull it out an inch or so (be careful doing this, there are SMALL wires connected to the back). That lets the sensor get a better sample of the room air rather than the wall itself. You can try a temp fix and if that works then put washers or spaces to hold it away from the wall and screw it tight again.

There are numerous threads on this subject. I'd do a search...But at the end of the day the solution was to relocate the sensor.

Yeah, I just posted some pics a few weeks ago of my relocated temp sensor. Works great.

Thank you for the pictures of the sensor relocation to the light. Never thought of that but I will do it. Shouldn't be much of a problem.
