Unhappy Clock / Thermometer

Has anyone attempted to repair the thermometer?

Does it remove with out drilling the rivets?

At some point in time, someone failed at an attempted repair.

The spring assembly has been partially disassembled. Is this a worth while endeavor? I'll need to get a mirror in there to get a better look. But from what I can feel this seems to be a one piece unit?

The clock works, however the “ticking” is enough to drive ya!

I did find some great matching trim insert at HD though!

The ticking is a nice gentle tick - great for sleeping

I have a 1975 Sovereign, and my thermometer doesn't work either. If you have any luck let me know.

No luck yet, I think something has either broken or has become disconnected. I'll keep you posted.
You can see the battery has been removed from the clock. It works fine however the ticking can wake the dead!

We wanted a mechanical clock for our new CCD. I feel no place can be called a home without a real clock. None of our pendulum clocks would work in something that moves around, and our balance wheel clocks are all designed to sit on a hearth or shelf, which are in short supply in the trailer. So the obvious thing is a ship's clock. They're accurate, and designed to handle the motion.

Most are in brass cases, but I found a chrome one on eBay. The face is brushed, maybe stainless steel. Perfect. It even has a switch to turn off the bell chimes, if one is not used to that sort of thing. Not a problem in our cacophonous abode.

Those would be a great adition to a coach without a clock like mine. On their coach he is trying to fix the factory thermometer located below the factory clock above the Goucho.

Here is a picture where you can see what he is working with. Its between the two doors on the overhead.

Thermometer problem

Toaster thanks for using a picture of my unit. For a point of knowledge my thermometer doesn't work either go figure. Its stuck at minus 30. While pulling out the front cap that turned dull orange, I read the manual on removal of the clock and thermometer, and as advertised both items are put up with double sided tape. The thermometer has a probe/lead that disappears somewhere deep into the bowels of my A/S. So not wanting to spend the rest of my live chasing the probe I cut the lead. With my wife’s love of air conditioning I’m going to reinstall it with the hands glued at 65 degrees. Maybe this will keep her from asking me to turn it down all the time LOL.

If you take a look under the front exterior of the coach under the gaucho you will see the remote sensor hanging there, It is normally approx 18 inches in from the edge of the coach, so it is not really visible unless you are looking for it.

It is not something I have ever replaced, but I would bet that the routing of the "wire" to the probe would make it very time consuming to R&R.

Where does it go to LOL

Ok the thermo probe goes somewhere down. I tried to pull it out and only managed to remove the plastic tubing over it. I could have pulled harder but a didn’t feel like replacing the wall LOL.

Thermometer

Climbed under the camper yesterday. The probe looks intact. So, I'll have to see if the themometer can be removed. From what I can see there is a bar connected to the spring. Some how this has become disconnected from the spring.
