Coleman Digital Thermostat Problems

I just saw this thread on another forum about problems with the Coleman Digital Thermostats. Is there anyone here who has upgraded to the Coleman brand digital thermostats and have you had this problem or not?

Could you link to the thread?

I recently installed a Coleman Digital Heat/Cool Thermostat 8330-3362 and have not had any problems, so far.

I'm horrible about forgetting attachments in emails. Now my Senioritis has spread to links in forums. Ack!

Let me do some digging around and find it again.

Interesting thread. We don't have any florescent fixtures; we have re-charged a cell phone nearby the thermostat without issues.

I installed the Coleman Digital Heat/Cool Thermostat 8330-3362 on both our AC's a few months ago and haven't had a problem at all.

I have had my Coleman digital thermostats for a year now and no problems at all. I have two, one with heat position and one cool only.

Installed a Coleman in May and have experienced nothing negative.

I have generated lot's of crazy RF in the trailer (CB's/Cell Phones/Cell Phone repeaters/WiFi Hot Spots/LED dimmers etc) and still have seen no problems.

The T-Stat does not use a battery backup and is totally dependant on the 12VDC from the trailer's battery and/or power-controller. Easy to see that if the 12V source was crappy, problems could occur. I'm sure if a solid 12V is applied, all problems go away.

No need to spend the extra money on a coleman thermostat. Wal-Mart has Hunter thermostats that work just fine that costs $20.00 to $25.00. I used a Hunter digital thermostat for the last 4 years in place of the coleman manual thermostat that came with my Jayco. The Hunter thermostats work off of 2 AA's instead of the RV's 12 volt source.
