Good Morning Shelly,
First off, WELCOME to the group and for making such a great COACH purchase. Sunlines are truly amazing units.
Now, about the "tick, tick, tick" clock. I didn't have a problem with it keeping time, but that darn "TICK" every second about drove me nuts. I went to WalMart and purchased a very nice slighty rectangular polished nickel color ATOMIC digital. Keeps great "QUIET" time, interior temp and the date. It fit right where the original clock was. Cost was $19.97
With your purchase of a Sunline, I know for sure there are now "2" Sunlines residing in CA.
