Simple T-stat cover

I have a Scamp 16' Deluxe and the placement of the T-stat has always been problematic. How many others are tired of kicking it and knocking the cover off while sleeping? I don't even know what you call this thing. I believe they are used in cafeterias to hold coffee stir sticks. We always just had it in our 3 season porch to hold coasters. I'm not even sure where one would buy one. But the other day while sitting out there enjoying a cold beverage, I reached for a coaster and it hit me. I wonder if this would work. And low and behold it works perfectly. No fasteners no nothing. I just snapped it over the T-stat and let friction to the rest. We took it on a 250 mile trip last weekend and it stayed right in place. No more knocking the T-stat cover off in the middle of the night.

It is a retarded place to put the thermostat considering the dinette gets used for a bed and you are in and out of the seat on the narrower side of the table. I think they can improve on how the fresh water tank gets filled. It just not to be a sanitary way to fill the tank. One of the reasons I don't drink out of it when we boondock though I have probably drank worse.

Cyndi $ Jerry, We have never had any trouble witht he trhemostat though I considered moving it based on site comments.

Here's a potential solution, non intrusive solution. We removed the wrought iron cabinet supports and replace them with a piece of wood. It would be very easy to move the thermostat from the fiberclass counter to the surface of the wood.
