Made a major change today, switched the original Coleman Mack thermostat with a new digital Coleman Mack thermostat. Pretty complicated cutting 6 wires and hooking them up to the new thermostat even though the wires were the same color on both stats. Took all of 10 minutes. Will have to rest the remainder of the afternoon.

Can't believe it took you 10 minutes!

Did TOWTA have to read the instructions for you?

Original one worked fine, just wanted the digital display. New one allows setting temperature for both heating and ac individually and activates on a 1 fluctuation of the temperature.

BTW, TOWTA doesn't even know it's been changed. She hasn't even been in the camper to notice. YET!

Herk, both the old and new are black. Mounting holes are exactly the same also.
Has the hi lo fan control also just like the Honeywell I changed in the old camper except this new one doesn't have a battery.

I used the battery to check the operation of a trolling motor.
