I fixed it. I had pulled these off a job site and forgot that they were set for commercial electric heat. I went in the menu and reset for my needs and it works perfectly now. Thanks everyone.

I set it in the menu settings for 1-0 which is electric/gas heat and A/C
then in the other menu for type of heat I set for conventional gas non 99% efficient model.

I also set a delay on my a/c compressor and set my min and max threshold on a/c and heat. Now I can set the t stat on auto and if it gets too cold at night it will kick on the furnace and then bring the a/c back on in the morning.

I did not bother with a timer programmable one mainly cause I got these 4 honeywells for free from a job I did recently, and a timer one seemed a little bit of over kill for a camper even if I do live in it. haha.

I love the idea of a tstat that will automatically switch from cool to heat to cool. that is really cool (or nice)!
Glad You have it running correctly. Happy Camping!

The final working wiring is set as follows:
A/C side Stat side
-------- --------
White to white - Heat
Yellow to yellow - A/c comp
Green to green - fan (low or hi)
Grey to green - fan (low or hi)
Red to R/Rh (leave jumper on)

Blue not used
All other connections on the Stat are not used.

The switch on the back of the Stat should be set to "HG" (or gas heat)

Many thanks to gljurczyk and sdelam and Triguy for their excellent help!
Can you provide a photo of the thermostat you installed? A quick web search found a RTH2300B 1012/A....is that correct?

Honeywell Model RTH111B

Been looking at changin out my Coleman-Mach analog to a digital Thermostat and have read through your thread...lots of good info there!

I have a simple Honeywell stat (RTH111B) and pretty much understand how to install it but...I'm a bit concerned that the blue wire is not being used as noted in your post. According to the literature I have the wires are as follows:

R= Positive or power
Y= A/C Compressor
W=Heat
Green=High speed Fan
Gray=Low Speed fan
Blue= Negative/Ground

So if I don want Low speed I won't use the Gray wire but how will the system work without the blue to complete the circuit?

I don't want to start cutting wires until I know the stat i have will work.

Thanks!!

Do you have a "C" terminal on the new sub base? If you do that would be common or ground. Is battery operated? I'll try and find something on your new stat not all will work.

Call 1-800-468-1502, I would say blue is common or ground, The details do not go into it. They will tell you if it will work and how to wire it. It has 12volt back up for the display already. If it will work off a milli volt as they said it should work. But millivolt you only use red and white no ground. It's switch is set for gas already and leave the jumper in from R to RC, just use the R for your wirer.

Just tried calling the Honeywell help line as suggested. They were of no help. Basically they said the thermostat would not work on an RV.

Guess I will just cut the wires and start trial and error method cause I know this will work. :-)

On mine, Blue was +12v which you won't use.

Red, White and Yellow wires from the RV are connected to R, W and Y terminals on the Thermostat.
Green and Gray are for high and low fan, whichever you want goes to the
G terminal.

You can follow the link below to see mine, if you want to wire up a high/low switch like I did.

Black - Honeywell Digital Thermostat

offroad, in the thread you referred to, is the 2nd picture a before and after showing how you had to trim the plastic around the mode selection switch to allow for room for the SPDT switch?

Yes, that was before and after pics.
Probably didn't need to remove quite that much material for the switch and wires, but it didn't hurt anything.

Using the A/C this weekend and really appreciate the lighted dials on these.
You just press up or down by feel, and it shows the current setting then you can adjust. No need to turn on a light in the middle of the night if I wake up and am too warm.
