I've had the same problem with the cheap locks. I use a lot of duck tape going down the road. Some day I'll get some energy and change them out.

I placed a 2in thick piece of closed cell foam in between the wall and thermostat. it blocked the heat coming from that wire hole and it also got the thermostat away from that warm wall. Its a shame they located that thermostat were they did! i also upgraded to digital. Now its within 2 degree so 74 at the wall is 72 everywhere else. It was a 7 degree difference before and the unit would shut off and on way to often. try keeping one vent pointed in the direction of the wall also helps.

As a side note - and for future users who might read this - the one lock at the back of the camper (the outdoor shower) is different (shorter) than the other 4.

Not only is it shorter but the square hole for the latch arm is too small for the new locks. The shortest lock at rv locals and more is still too long so I had to use a small file to make the hole bigger and bend it about 30 degrees to make it work.

Good to know. I noticed when I measured it, it seemed a bit shorter than the shortest one they offered.

A lot of the people here have changed to this lock. It let's you leave you door unlocked but closed while setting up or breaking down. Then you can lock it when you need. It's not a 2 sided key so it will not be as quick and easy to get the key in as opposed the the one recommended above, the only drawback.

Keyed thumb locks
