You are dreaming that, if a 24 volt stat comes with batteries it will work on a 12 volt system 90 percent of the time. You may need to hook-up a common wire to most but with some you don't. If you want the 2 speed a/c blower option you need to add a spst switch. Or you could just get a Coleman Mark
digital from Amazon for 69.00 bucks. Then your blower fan A/C would work with heater being on to circulate the warm air better plus have the 2 speeds.....
