Inaccurate Hvac Control

Has anyone had experience in repositioning coach Hvac temperature sensors in Tuscany? They are situated under cabinets in slides. This causes temp to read excessively high temps when coach is parked in the sun. The AC runs in excess.

Just no explaining what some RV companies will do or why even! I have not relocated one but should be as simple as anything ever is in an RV. I'd remove the sensor just enough to see what the wire looked like then it should pass through a bundle of wires within a protective sheath where the slide goes in. It might be possible to pull the wire back in and relocate the sensor somewhere it works better or if not then cut it as close to the coach main area as possible and run a new wire from it to where you want the sensor. A sensor should ideally be around shoulder height on an interior wall away from drafts or AC vents. I also would check the manual and find out where any other sensors are (if there are any.) If there is another and it is in a good place you might even be able to disconnect that one temporarily and see if you like the change. I am guessing that the thought process was to keep the slide area from overheating in the sun since those areas are harder to keep cool.
