Coletrain182,,,post a pic of those caps from the top at an angle. I can't tell if they're bulged up or not,,,,,but regardless,,,,I've not recalled having one that could still read the MFD and be buldged up,,,,so they are probably ok.

The fan cap looks bulged to me to, but he is putting the new one in also. 7.5 MFD's are cheap anyway. Coletrain if you read this get a SP6 hard start for the compressor while your up there. They are cheap and do work and will help save your compressor...

I installed the OEM digital Coleman Digital RV Thermostats | RV Digital Thermostats. Quick job, even used the same screws. No more fear of toasting the contacts using the non-digital model.

I appreciate it! I went with a Honeywell!!

As said above, any thermostat that is powered by batteries and will operate a millivolt system.

Take pictures of the wiring connections before you unhook them. It makes it easier to convert the wire colors to functions.

If you unit is a Coleman the wire colors follow.

Red = +12v (Hook to ""R"/RC" terminal)
Yellow = Comp (Hook to "Y" terminal)
White = Furnace (Hook to "W" terminal)
Blue = -12v (Not Used)
Gray = Low Fan (Not Used)
Green = Hi Fan (Hook to "G" terminal)

You can hook the Gray to the "G" terminal if you want low fan speed instead of high (Not Recommended).

Coletrain:

This may help you. If you don't want to be able to change fan speeds, pick one and forget the switch.
