Digital thermostat?

We just ordered a 2016 Jayco 28RBDS - can't wait! Does anyone know if the 2016 models have a digital thermostat?

Look to eBay for a replacement tstat. Thru good fortune I got mine for free.

Story behind this ... I made a best offer on a used one ($25) and it was accepted, but it arrived missing the fuse. Seller didn't want to bother researching/ procuring/sending the correct part so said keep it and refunded my money. He wanted (and received) a positive review.

I called Coleman Mach for the specs (2A, 250V) then went to Radio Shack.

I just bought one on Amazon for about $50. This is the part number that worked with mine: RVP 8330-3862 Coleman Mach Black Digital Wall Thermostat

I have a 7 yr old boy who does the trash, and a gardener for the lawn.

I'm sure I talked to you over the years on the radio. I flew a BE400 for Flight Options/Raytheon from 98-08 flying all over that area.

What's so special about this one? I can get a Honeywell digital thermostat for half the price.

It's the digital version of the analog one in mine. Straight swap and even used same baseplate.

The digital Coleman-Mach is a color wire to wire replacement for ease of install and the high-low fan speed. The Honeywell's [house thermostat] only come with 1 fan speed and would require the addition of another switch or some other modification for dual fan speed.
