If you have a remote sensor, it will be a little plastic mesh dome looking deal about the size of a thimble either on the ceiling or on a wall in the bedroom ... you probably already knew that and were testing me.

Lol I wasn't testing you , I've been told my unit doesn't have one which means one thermostat "multi zone" monitors both a/c units which makes no sense, especially if the bedroom door is shut.

And if I want my bedroom a/c at say 80 and the living room at 75 how does that help me ? Lol

The t-stat on the left would be for the fantastic fan. The right one would be for the a/c and furnace. If you have a fire place, I'd assume that it's not thermostatically controlled. They're usually a plug and play item. They may have different heat settings but they are manually controlled. But, as my wife can attest, I've been wrong before!! Lol

Well, we made it home with the new-to-us 5'r after 14-hrs of driving!
And garmford was right on all accounts! The analog stat is for the fantasticfan. The fireplace is a remote control on/off.
Not sure I like the fan with a control like that. Figure an on/off would be more useful.

I like the control for the fantastic fan. We keep our rig plugged in next to our garage between camping trips and I'll Set the t-stat for 80*. I believe it relives the camper of any excessive heat build up while it's not being used. Ours, and I assume your too, has the rain sensor so it will close if it would happen to rain. Not that I trust it 100%. If I know we're going to get some rain I make sure that I close it.

garmford -- can one of those MaxAir Vent Covers be placed over this type vent?
Meaning will the motorized open/close feature still work properly?
Or, are the vent covers too 'small' for it to open as it should and damage the open/close motor?
Any idea?

I don't have any covers over my vents so I can't help you there. I have read somewhere on the forum recently that you can use them, it's just a matter of placement. I'm guessing you need to set them so they favor the front of the coach which allows the vent max room to open. If I see that post again I'll link it here. Congrats on the new rig!! It always exciting to get a new camper.

Max air fanmate works perfect on them.
I have two .

Move the fanmate towards front of camper till hit hits the back of fan opening.

Camco and Maxair just about the same?
Or favor one over the other?
