Yes, a residential T-Stat runs on about 27 VAC. An RV T-Stat will need to be 12 VDC.

not true. the Hunter and Honeywell digital thermos are battery-powered and don't need 12vDC or 110vAC to run. they can work with either.

if you simply Google: Hunter thermostat in RV, you'll get all kinds of info.
or simply do a search on any RV forum.

You are correct for some reason I ignored the word digital I guess!

The more I think about my first the dumber I feel! It just switches the voltage on and off so it does not matter. Sorry again you caused a lightbulb moment for me.
