Oldtool2; maybe this will help you. I replaced my Coleman Mach with a Honeywell. The Honeywell only did one fan speed, so I had to wire the two fan wires to a single pole single throw switch to let me switch speeds. You shouldn't have to do that, since you've got a terminal for each speed.

On the Honeywell only have one fan speed and would have to add a switch if I wanted both speeds. Sense I don't need the slow speed will not add one. If I had a heating stip I might need slow but don't.

Here is a photo that shows how Honeywell marks their connections.

I have a Rockwood 2703ws with three slides. I paid extra for the 15K and slide awnings based on what I have read on the forum. I have found that insulated covers on windows and the two skylights can help. Once it cools down at night I set it at 70 during the day and have had few issues. We live in Florida and camp in September through May.

okay then hook-up just like that and the way I said in an earlier post. taping 3 wires off, it is battery operated correct they use that to hold the program when the power go's out but you will need them to make that stat work. .....

Covers on the vents are a good idea to help keep the unit from heating up so much. Insulated windows would have to be ordered when the trailer was being built. I guess you could add plastic but it would need to be added on the inside or it might blow off when traveling down the highway.

At Lowes, and maybe HD, you can get a roll of reflective material, like what's used in cars behind windshields, cut it with scissors to size, and place it between window and shade...shade will hold it in place...really works good

I like the idea of what you're talking about. What I had always seen was at auto parts stores and you had to peel one side of it off to stick it on the window. This sounds like it's just held in place and could be removed easily if you wanted to. Am I right?

Yes....When I bought a roll ( it's not expensive) they only had one width....when I went to Nashville, I cut some and placed into position...what a difference ..I.duck taped 2 pieces together for a larger window and the shade held it in place....left in while traveling, the trailer stayed alot cooler and didn't take near the time for the a/c to cool it down.....at the store I use, I found it in where the house insulation is.

It is called Reflextics and is what I added to all my windows and vents depending on sun location and such. I think it was $25 for the 2ft wide roll that did my entire trailer.
