My previous TT had a remote for the furnace... at the time I thought it was silly as it is just 9 steps across the RV but now... want it real bad as I can leave the heat off all night and then turn it on just before I get up in the AM.. Going to have to check around for one at Home Despot and other such places.

I just installed a Hunter 42995 $20.00 from Walmart should work fine, but will test when I get the trailer home to de winterize.
I didnt use the micro switch for fan speed, its wired to blow high.

I personally cant tell much difference in the Lo/Hi so I just wired High as well.

Hey question for you guys with digital stats -- how far down can you turn your heat? I have had occasions where I wanted to leave the heat on while in storage but my stat only goes down to 45o. Anybody have a model that goes down to say 35o??

I must be easy to please as I never bothered with any of this stuff like replacing the thermostat and just use the stat that came with the trailer. Yeah, the scale is "off" a bit (which they often are). Just set it to where you're "comfy". Seems to work OK for me.

However, to see a more accurate temperature, I purchased (at Sam's Club) one of those "atomic" clocks that has both an indoor and (wireless) outdoor thermometer. Installing it is a breeze compared to performing replacement thermostat "surgery"- just a screw/nail in the wall or you can use the clock's self-storing legs and set on a counter, table, etc.

I use the temperature on the clock to set the furnace & A/C thermostat to its temperature. I only wish the trailer's thermostat had an "Auto" setting (to automatically switch between heat and A/C modes) like my one at home does.

See the Hunter model in my signature below. I know the Hunter model at Walmart is $20 but I love the Indiglo on mine. I paid about $35

All that just so you can keep up with a Duramax? Wouldn't it have been easier simply to buy one? :hihi: :hihi:

I agree, FPM III, that's a lot of souping up to keep up with a "MAX". If Moparman would ever come out of hiding and get back on this forum, he and bbhoth could have a lot to talk about comparing their Dodge Diesels.....
