Installing digital thermostat

I have the 195bh with the suburban furnace and old fashioned thermostat. I want to replace with a simple digital one. Since its heat only I'm thinking this should be easy for a novice like me. I poped the cover and only see two wires coming out of camper so should be easy? Would this work?

This ought to work fine. I have a Honeywell for the AC/Furnace.

This 1 mod confirmed to my wife that I am still the man of her dreams!

As long as you have heat only just disregard the AC wire parts.

I installed a Luxpro programmable on my Jayco which was heat only. Just used the two wires. Simple clean install and it was sure nice to have even heat without long run times or cycling plus we would let it go low at night but have incentive to wake up in the morning when it would automatically come up to the programmed temp. My new Windjammer did not come with a digital thermostat, just a simple Coleman analog....bummer. however it has the A/C built in as well unlike my previous Jayco hybrid.

I swapped two Coleman analog thermostat's for Digital residential units here.
Most any of the cheap Honeywell units will work, and many others too.

The two speed fan switch is optional (can wire just for high speed), as is painting them black to match. I like the one's I used because they have a lighted display, unlike the Coleman digital units. You do need two AAA batteries for operation however since they are 24v.

Does anyone know if this thermostat will work?
Honeywell TB8220U1011
http://www.lennox.com/pdfs/manuals/L...een_Manual.pdf

I know it's orobably overkill but my BIL found a few of them in the house he bought last year so it's free!

It takes 3 AAA batteries so it seems that it can be battery operated.

Think that will work. Looks similar to a Honeywell. Download the wiring for it and it should work if programmed properly...good luck

It is a Honeywell. It seems to be a Honeywell VisionPro 8000 with a Lennox logo.

From what I've read, I presume that we need battery powered thermostats because an RV doesn't have a 24VAC supply unless you install a transformer to provide that power supply.

Found a link to the installation guide for a Honeywell VisionPro8000 here
http://www.hydro-temp.com/help/drawi...069-1894ES.pdf

I should be able to paint it black to match the other faceplates in the new TT. The only negative is I probably wouldn't be able to mount a SPDT switch inside for the fan speed so I'd have to have only high or low speed for the AC fan.

Running it off the batteries should not be an issues. May need to change them once or twice a year depending on how much you use it. Don't even bother with the switch. Big hassle with very slight diff between lo and hi fan only. I installed one, but in retrospect, it was more of a pain than worth it for fan speed. I have used that thermostat in my office and it is a very nice thermostat with lots of features you will probably not need. Reliable and accurate. Will keep your a/c and heat much more even. I'm near 100 percent sure it will work. . Choose whichever speed you want (one of the three wires going to the Spdt switch) then attach directly to the thermostat fan. Cap the other two behind the thermostat plate. Note on switch: one wire is for Lo fan, one wire for Hi fan, other wire is the output of the switch. Have fun on project. Should be straightforward. Follow the programming options carefully on the thermostat. On setup function 170 enter the correct number for your system type. The furnace will operate with its own fan system so there's just two wires for that. The other wires will be for the A/C. Good luck!

I know this is getting off the OP's topic, but I only have the Lo Fan hooked up. The HI speed didn't help things much and just made more noise. When we go in the summer, we have a tower oscillating fan to help circulate the air.
