Installed Coleman digital thermostat.

So today I finally got around to installing my new digital thermostat I bought a few weeks ago. Easy wire for wire install. It is working great. Now I actually know the accurate temp in my rig. I'd guess the original slide thermostat was 6-8 degrees off.
Great mod IMO!

I haven't done any research yet, but I'm guessing you cannot use a digital household thermostat. I looked that one up and I see it says 12 V.

Correct, there are some that have an internal battery that some are using but the wire for wire swap is the easy way for me.

The only thing holding me back from doing this mod is the inability to run the fan only, constantly. By the looks of things you have to have it on either heat or cool mode for the ran to run. I suppose you could put it to "cool" and then dial the temp way up with the fan on "on" mode and that would achieve the same thing as the fan on only?

That would work fine if the thermostat was set way higher than the outside temp.

Putting the fan to On will run it without having it on Cool.

I installed the digital thermostat earlier this season. I need to stuff some insulation in the hole behind it so the heat/cold in the wall doesn't effect it so much....
