What type of thermostat?

First I would like to thank all for their replies to the "queen" size bed length in my soon to be delivered 26bh. Now onto the thermostat: I have watched a number of videos for both the 264bh and the 26bh and see different styles of thermostat for the a/c and heat. I have a real aversion to the non-digital type of thermostat and hope that my new tt has a digital type. Does anyone know what the 2019's are coming off the line with?

Our 2018 WhiteHawk came with the digital Dometic t-stat. Very simple, just a few touches and works great. Way better than the Coleman manual stat, and less temperature swing.

Is your trailer a Jay Flight? If so, unless Jayco has changed, you will find a analog type thermostat on the wall.

My 2017 Jay Flight 23RB came with the non digital Coleman-Mach thermostat. I quickly replaced it with a Coleman-Mach digital thermostat. The new thermostat keeps the temperature within a 2 degree range. On heat if 78 is set, when the temperature falls to 77 degrees, the furnace kicks on. When the temperature gets to 79, the furnace cuts off.

In the past, my trailers only had heat on the thermostat. In those cases I just replaced with an inexpensive Honeywell thermostat from a big box store.

However, my current trailer has central heating and A/C. Too many wires to have to deal with if attaching a residential type thermostat. So I paid the extra money and got a Coleman-Mach digital thermostat. This way, it was just a straight swap, wire for wire, from the non-digital to digital thermostat.

Thank you one and all

I'm pretty sure that my new 26bh will come with the analog thermostat and equally sure that will be one of the first things I replace. I just need to wait and see the model/part number of the existing thermostat so that I can order the direct replacement. Thanks again!

My 2019 28BHS came with the Dometic digital thermostat as well and it works great so far.

.

We did the same. Be thankful you have a Coleman AC unit. I believe they switched to dometic units on the current models, which from what I’ve been reading, can be problematic with freezing up and what not.

My digital thermostat was different from his. Mine was what he was expecting, apparently. I just took a wire from the old thermostat and connected to the same place on the new thermostat. And I continued to do that until all the wires were attached.

Pretty much easy as 1-2-3.

I put in a Coleman digital replacement thermostat, it seems to work great! It was a direct replacement. We had no trouble with it running the A/C this summer when we were plugged in. It worked on the heater over the last week, even when it got to 8 yes 8 degrees last Sunday night about 10 miles south of Chemult OR. This is the one I bought:
