Digital Thermostat

Now that the Hunter digital thermostats are impossible to find, what's the next alternative. Want an un-programable one similar to Hunter 42999?
Anybody know of one like the Hunter and where to buy it?

Thanks lilbigfoot - - did the research and this looks like the best fit for me. Don't want to mess with the wiring and switch issues others have discussed. An easy swap sounds great even though the price is too high! Just ordered one thru Amazon/RVPlus for $70.39 total but the easy swap will be worth the extra cost.

Pricey I know....but so was the Trailer. Easy install and works well for me.

I replaced my original analog thermostats with the Coleman units within the first couple of months of ownership. Direct replacement and they work great.

Here is alternativ using Lux DMH110A to Update RV Thermostat for $18.00.
Write up, video, and pdf on the installation process from an rv owner.

I went with the Coleman RV Comfort HC. It was a little more expensive but a 6 wire hookup and I was done in 20 minutes. Works so much better than the old analog thermo. Bought it locally and it was the best 80 bucks I have ever spent on my 5er.

We've done the same on our WhiteHawk and I agree....good money spent....unit seems to regulate temperature much better.

Those are what came in our 5th. The bedroom is AC only while the one in the "big room" controls AC and furnace. They work great.
