A wireless thermostat, put it where you want it.

Venstar Wireless Thermostat System - No Need to Rewire - Smarthome

I used one when I installed the pellet stove.

Did his trouble just suddenly start to happen? Digital or analogue type of thermostat? Maybe a power surge messed it up. Or it is just old. 10 years in a trailer environment might be the limit.

When you say " turns it down all the way" are talking about the thermostat? Fan speed switch?

Looks nice for a 'home' install but doesn't look like it will work in an RV environment. (12 volt control circuits) But I don't doubt there is a wireless made for RV-ers

I read the manual and don't see any reason that it wouldn't work in an RV. It's run by batteries and not any other power source.

Edit: This is wrong. The receiver requires 24vac which isn't available in a normal RV.
