Different thermostat for furrion unit

I have a 2022 25RB Jayfeather with the Furrion unit and thermostat, I don't like the fact I can't run the furnace any less than 60°. Just seems like the furnace runs forever. Has anyone swapped it out with a smart thermostat or something different?

I installed a Honeywell thermostat to replace the ancient Furrion 1970s style thermostat in my trailer. Very easy as there are only two wires to connect.

We have something that looks just like that in our new 21MML and I already don't like it. It's not at all intuitive, and the fan speed controller is bass ackwards to my thinking.

Are there simpler to use upgrades available for these thermostats?

Thanks for the link. We taking a quick 2 night / 3 day trip to a nearby campground the week after Christmas. I'll go to school on the thermostat in it now, and then look into the Microair if i can't make peace with the one we have.

Love my Honeywell electronic digital thermostat with battery backup!. Keeps desired temp much more closely with none of those 60 to 80 degree cycles!

Purchased in 2017 and still going strong. I got my Honeywell on Amazon.

I have this thermostat as well in my 2024 25RB. Shuts off randomly. Furrion support says it is in Demo mode, and needs to be connected to my phone at least once to get it out of demo. It will not pair with any of my devices though. This thermostat is way too much for my single zone camper. Will continue my troubleshooting with Furrion today.

I hear ya.

We've got other stuff going on at the moment, but before we get fully into camping season I'll be upgrading to the Micro-air that was mentioned above.
