Auto level control panel.

We bought a 2015, 315 Crusader. I have a hard time seeing the auto level control panel. Does anyone else this issue? And if so, where did you move it to? I was thinking of moving it in the propane tank compartment??

That compartment is open to the elements at bottom so I wouldn't put it there.

Yes, I find that mine is hard to see. The fact that I'm 6'6" doesn't help, but it isn't a big deal to kneel to see it IMO.

They installed mine on a bracket in the side Left locker at the top so when I open the hatch it right there, very easy to read, they also installed a manual front leg rocker switch at the same place that my extend and retract of the landing legs was located. That over rides the control panel

I agree that bending over to use the panel is less than fun. My joints have seen better days. Too bad this system doesn't have a remote. Oh well.

I have a 2014 325 and mine is located in the basement just inside the baggage door . It's the only thing I don't like about my coach. It's painful on
my neck and kills my knees. I have seen some control panels mounted and inset in the outside wall with a door covering the control panel.. at almost eye level. I'm looking into doing the same to my 325.

It kills my knees but, focusing my bifocals cause me the biggest problem!

Yes, that location was a horrible decision. If they had placed the hinges on the bottom of the baggage door so it folded down, it would have been fine... They could have even placed it on the curb side where that baggage door goes all the way up.
