x10? 20? 30? Whatever the number is, many of us have done this and it's definitely one of those mods that pays for itself in comfort and convenience almost immediately. It's also one of those mods that makes you wonder why the industry is so penny wise yet dollar foolish.
IMHO, digital thermostats should be standard on every RV and travel trailer. Instead of us all throwing away $25 analog thermostats and installing $60 digital replacements, why not just give us digital units out the door? Even if the manufacturer passed 100% of that cost onto customers, it would add what, maybe $20 to the vehicle purchase price (since they'd be buying digital thermostats in bulk at wholesale pricing)? Same thing with winterizing prep, black tank flushers and other things that are so integral to operating an RV, yet owners have to do aftermarket mods...
I know RV industry vs. auto industry is an uneven comparison (and the auto industry is by no means perfect), but try to find the most basic car today without AC or power windows. These things, which were once optional, are now standard equipment at virtually every price point because they're so inexpensive to incorporate. It would be nice to see that happen in the RV industry. I'm not calling for auto-leveling on 15 ft. pop-ups, just the little things that manufacturers know 80% or more of owners are going to want or need at any RV price point. Okay, putting away soapbox and taking deep breaths into a paper bag...
