Digital Thermostat

Can someone recommend a Digital Thermostat that would work in our '02 Jayco 31FKS Designer TT ?

Thanks Hondo !!! I've been checking out this very same Mod.
I need to first check out what we currently have (the analog thermostat) and see how close I can come to instructions for replacement of ours. Scares me to dive into something this involved.

Thank-you for the link. I frequently visit that web site for ideas of what I'm up against concerning mods.

AC


Furnace


Our AC and Heater thermostats are seperate.

Would a newer Digital Thermostat just run the AC ?

I did this mod and it works great!! It keeps the TT a more constant temp and with out the big temp swing before the AC/HEAT turns on or off.
You do need to be a little bit mechanically inclined because it is not a direct wire for wire transfer and you need to modify the thermostat and add a micro switch to control the fan speed (HI/LOW).
