Yes, many have on here. Stay clear of household 24 volt variety, RV's use 12 volt. If possible compare wiring diagrams of existing and which you want to use. Most makers of RV controls offer both Analog and Digital.

Make sure you unplug ALL power to trailer first. My buddy fried both ac and furnace boards by not doung so. It was a costly misteake.

I also used the Hunter 4299B Digital to replace the old thermostat in my unit. I think the old one was Dometic, it doesn't matter it got replaced. I found the info to do the swap on this forum. You can do a search and find it here somewhere. The swap was really simple and works really well. The old unit would allow the inside temp to change about 8-10 degrees before kicking the A/C in but this new one only allows maybe a 2-3 degree rise. As far as the furnace--it hasn't been cold enough down here to use it yet in four years so far.

Funny!! I've never used my A/C (except to see if it worked when I bought the trailer). Furnace I use a lot.

I had the same thermostat as you do. I put in this one. Coleman Digital Heat/Cool Thermostat (u) 8330-3362 - Programmable Household Thermostats - Amazon.com
Except I found a black one. It was not on Amazon.

BTW, I'm right down the road from you.
