I'd make the suggestion to get a cheaper digital thermostat. I got one from Home Depot and installed it -- it only took a few minutes. The thermostat also doubles as a thermometer inside the trailer.

I believe it was the Honeywell Digital Non-Programmable Thermostat. It is simple and gets the job done.

Unfortunately, I cannot verfiy because I have a dang lot of ice/snow between my house and the trailer. Spring can't come fast enough for me!

Of course I had to sleep in it tonight, even if it's just in the driveway. So glad I found this forum before picking up the trailer. It's gonna be a cool one. Decided to try the furnace. Jumped out of my skin when the smoke alarm went off. I better let it run in daylight hours for a bit tomorrow so the neighbors don't get mad. Time to work these things before I go to the cg.

Oh thanks for the reminder! I knew there something I had forgotten. We will be taking our first trip in two weeks to Big Sur River campground. Busy getting everything ready, but forgot about burning off the heater and oven!

I ran mine in the driveway with all the windows, doors and vents open for about 45 minutes to burn it off. Worked like a charm and never set off a smoke alarm. Luckily it was really cold that day.

Luckily I was able to run mine with it open this morning and no smoke detector going off. All is good now.
