Great mod and even better instructions. I don't know they they are still using the old thermostats but I plan to do this one also soon.

The high/low fan only is functional with my a/c. It does not work when in heat mode. This was the case before I changed my thermostats from the original to digital. I decided on the Coleman Mach for my replacements because I didn't want to do anything to potentially cause a problem with my warranty if something comes up. I agree the other replacement brands are a lot cheaper than the Coleman, but I used the Coleman for the reason above.
They do work much better than the original. Most of the time the temp never changes where before the change it would change as much as 3-5 degrees.

One of the best mods I did on all 3 of our campers. Thanks Tim for a great tutorial and pics. It'll help others who haven't yet done this inexpensive, easy and beneficial mod.

There was a little difference in low/high with my A/C fan, but wired to high as well on my digital upgrade. I'll save this mod thread in the event I decide to add a switch in the future.



Tim, nice write-up on adding the switch!

I just wanted to thank 22FB2010Tim for his post on how to wire a digital thermostat. I installed two Universal Digital Non-Programmable Model: 42122 thermostats in my Rv today. At first I was a little puzzled how to wire them but after looking on JOF and finding 22FB2010Tim post it was a simple install.
Thanks again 22FB2010Tim it helped me out alot.:hihi::hihi::hihi:

Can't wait until my digital thermostat's arrive and I am able to install them. I ended up finding a place online (rvplus.com) that has the actual Coleman specific thermostats for $66.00. I ordered 2 and they should be here within the next day or 2 so I will let everyone know how the install goes.
FWIW I found a Honeywell digital thermostat at HD for around $20 but it didn't have room inside the case for the HI/LO switch so I took it back. Figured for a few $$ more I would save myself the headache and replace them with ones I should be able to hook right up.

How did you figure out which one to get? Their details are rather sketchy.

X2 Jrmay25. I used the Coleman replacements as well. I didn't want any warranty issues if something came up during the warranty period.

My dealer gave me the Coleman digital numbers to order. They said they could do the exchange, but since it is wire for wire and two screws.......I did the labor myself. It takes about 10 minutes each to do the exchange and that includes getting out the screw driver and putting it back up.
