2012 Roo Heater question?

Hello folks,
I bought a 2012 Roo, everything seems great but I have a question,
The Propane heater does not shut off when I place the control panel switch to the off position, ? Thermostat on wall next to sink,

is there another control switch I am overlooking?


Thanks For a response,,

Give it about 2 minutes to shut down- unit has to cool down before it shuts off. Also, some thermostats when you push to the left have a little "click" to be in the off position.

Thank you ,

once this huge snow storm is over, hopefully by tomorrow night, I will start it up for a while and shut it down and wait for the cool down time ,, I didn't think of that,

if yours has the lousy analog thermostat, consider upgrading to a digital one, which many of us have already done.

much better temp control. here's mine:

I put in a Honeywell RTH111. Not programmable, but it's not like I really need that. About $20 at Home Depot.

well, if you can use a screwdriver and can see colors, you should be able to do it.
or you can pay the dealer's shop rate of $100/hr, for a job that takes 15 minutes.
it's up to you.

Google Hunter digital thermostat or go to this one:

RV Digital Thermostat Installation / Duo-Therm and Suburban

there are a number of places to see how to do it, including YouTube.

many use a Hunter stat but you can use a Honeywell also.
i got mine on clearance for $14.
