Any battery operated digital thermostat should work.

How many wires do you have connected to the existing stat and what are the colors?

I swapped mine out today from a digital to the Mach digital so I could have the hi/lol fan option. Disappointed thought that I can't run a/c fn when heat is on.

I replaced the t-stat for the furnace in our Hummingbird with a Honeywell digital, heating-only thermostat. Now I actually know what temperature I'm setting it to, works great.

I put that same one in my x17z. Painfully easy, and works great. Make sure you keep an extra set of batteries in the camper, though. You don't want to get stuck without heat on a chilly night because the batteries died.

I found the best price on my digital thermostat here.

They even have a link to match up your old thermostat to a digital one.

Hello, did you replace the thermostat because the furnace will run randomly even when off? We also have a 17RK. It took a while to figure out why our battery was always dead anytime we get ready to use the camper. With a recharged battery, we heard the furnace trying to light and the fan was running. There is no shut-off switch for the battery, so now we pull the fuse.
