It's a little bigger than the analog one I replaced. It does hang over just a bit. Less than 1/2 inch. I think it'll be ok. I got it from Makarios RV. Lowest price around.

Ordered one today. I gave the man the RVP # on the back of old unit and he said its shipping tomorrow. In the hole behind thermostat is it good just to stuff a piece on insulation in there just to help it out ? I could not believe how just 2 screws hold this thermostat on the thin wall. I guess I was thinking house structure quality, lol. Its all Good

Not a lot of insulation in the walls. I can feel the heat in the hole where the wires come out.

Any thermostat will work better/accurate if you keep any outside influences away. I stuffed insulation in the hole then put some tape over that as I installed it.

Another thing is the location. One of mine is near the main door so every time someone opens it, it is so precise that it will react.

Also be aware where your cold vents are pointed. A ceiling vent blowing towards the thermostat can cause it to appear inaccurate.

Mine is next to the door and i did this install. How did everyone connect wires. Wire nuts?

Also, should i pull off wall and stuff some insulation of some sort in hole? will it make a diff?
