Moving control panel on Nuevo

 Does anyone know if it is possible to have the control panel on a 2007 Nuevo moved? Factory fitting is over the door with the light from the sky light reflecting badly on it!  Being 5' 3"and also wearing bi-focals I find it impossible to read.  I only wish Autosleeper had considered short a.... , folk!  It would be ideal if sited half way down the wall or even if it could be angled down.  
Has anybody else encountered this?  I don't really want to use a step stool in order to read this panel.

Any solutions gratefully received.

Dpending on a number of things (mainly cable routing) it should be a lot simpler to have an angled housing made to have it point downward. There is almost certainly enough cable slack behind it for that to work.

Moving it elsewhere may involve complications if the existing cable run does not happen to go via the new location - extending and reterminating will be a job that most people probably wouldn't want to DIY.

Hi Viszy,
   If you know a good and friendly joiner, or handyman he might be able to make you a wedge shaped packing piece to tip the control panel to a suitable angle, say 30 degrees, to enable you to read it.
