We have a step stool for reaching the main AC. One of those with 2 steps I think. Store it in the front closet. If I'm lazy, I'll hop up on the countertop, which is in the right spot in our model. Don't like doing that but have a few times. For the few times I've done the modifications to the AC, I have drug a 6 foot ladder in there.
I guess all depends on just how tall you are. The step stool works for me at 5' 9".

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
