Phone Cord Trick Makes Great Fix For Heat Control

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Our Class A gasser has the heat/air-conditioning control located above the entry door.
The thermostat controller is LCD and mounted too high for me to see clearly. I have to perch over the steps leading down and light the display with a flashlight with one hand in order to try to set temperatures and modes with the other hand. Changing zones this way requires two hands. I fixed the problem by removing the thermostat from the wall and installing a 3-foot coiled phone cord. Now I can just grab the thermostat and pull it down to eye level and into the light. It was only a $6 fix and it works great.
