Analog to Digital Thermostat

I got tired of guessing what temperature I was setting for heat and AC with the analog thermostat that was original equipment on my 24T so, I upgraded to a Coleman digital and what a difference it makes. I highly recommend this upgrade!
I bought it at Amazon:

Totally agree. I set the AC at 75 and the heat at 70 for starters and adjust a degree up or down depending in situation.

I did this mod 2 years ago and it really made a difference in stabilizing the temp. So easy, even a hack with 10 thumbs like me can install it in a few minutes.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

Do this thermostat have a C option as well? Or just F?

Thanks for posting

I also converted this year. Much better job at keeping the temp where you want it. Best part was I got it for cheap on Ebay.

Picked up my 27DSRL at noon the Saturday before last and by One, this mod was finished.

Picked up this one and it works with my 2017 model.

I used a Home Depo Cheap that has a cold contact relay inside for switching. Works like a charm. I think it's model RHT22B. I plan on wiring the coleman Roof AC unit int he future as well. Any unit with dry contacts will work - one is not locked into an "RV ONLY" model. There's not a whole lot that can vibrate loose internally on these things. This one is similar to what I installed (same thermostat - different plastic housing). No new holes - just used a couple command strips to hold it on.
