I can't imagine it would be too difficult. I would either remove the existing wires for the furnace from the multipurpose thermostat and hook them up to a standard wall thermostat (simplest method I think) or I would add a 12V relay which would be activated by the heat strip wiring (with a on/off switch). The second method would be little more complex but would control both units at once.
