Say, Dan, when you have the AC on does the fan stay on constantly or does the fan shut off when the AC compressor cycles on and off?

Skip, the fan will shut down as soon as the compressor cycles off, then back on with the compressor. So far, it seems to be working great. Haven't ran the heater other than momentarily to make sure it would come on after the installation of the thermostat.

Thanks for the info. I replaced mine with a digital (not a Coleman) and the fan runs continuously as the compressor cycles on and off. So, I either have it wired incorrectly or need to spend the bucks for the Coleman.

The noise of the fan coming on and off disturbs our sleep. We leave the fan on low and the constant noise doesn't bother us as much and the temp seems to stay level better. We turn down to freeze your arse off at night and sleep really well. Maybe not good idea if your paying monthly or are on metered elect.

What would you guys suggest as a suitable replacement thermo for those of us that own a hybrid trailer? I would just need the heat portion only since our A/C controls are on the unit.

You can use the same thermo, but you only connect the heat side. The one used in the units with ducted a/c also control the furnace.

I have installed a digital stat from a hvac supply house. I like the Honeywell 5000. It has a 5 min delay. Keeps from short cycling the compressor. You loose the option of high or low fan speed. Same as most of conventional stat in your house

We put in a Honeywell Wifi Therm. Since we leave the camper at the site and have wifi it was a good fit for us. Now when we head up to camp 3 hours away I check the temp and on the hot 90+ days I can turn on the air before I get there so its nice and cool, and vise versa for the fall/winter with heat!
