I won an auction on a new RITETEMP 8085C

I'll attempt the install when I receive it.
It has some cool features, including touchscreen, humidity controls, backlight, and it's removeable so you can use it from your chair.

Good deal on the auction.
(I am curious what you got it for...)

Are you planning to splice in a toggle, or other switch, for fan hi-low operation?

HEY, I noticed that you are a FF also...fulltime?

I won it for $38.56...which included shipping.
It's new...but without the original packaging.
Most other BUY IT NOW were in the $60 range for this model.

I think I'll just have it hooked up where HI will be AUTO position, and LO will be in ON position. That will be easier than adding a switch....I hope!

I just replaced my Duo-Therm Domestic with a standard Honeywell residential digital stat. You basically want a residential stat that is used for 1 stage heat & 1 stage cool & a single transformer.
You will need a stat that uses batteries. Most RV's power the stat with 7.5 volts, instead of the standard 24 volts. They also break the ground circuit to make the relays activate. After tracing everything out, I installed the new digital & now can see exactly what the temps are & control within 1 degree.

The wiring is as follows-

Duo -Therm ------- Wire color ------- New Honeywell or any other

+7.5v ------------- Red ----------- do not use - tape off
Ground ----------- Green ----------- Rc-Rh - leave jumper in
Furnace ---------- White ------------W
Cool ------------- Yellow-------------Y
Fan ------------- Brown -------------G
High Fan ---------- Blue -------------G

The fan will only work on high speed with this set-up, which is all I use anyway. If you want both speeds, you have to install a simple bat switch to break the blue wire, then it will run on low speed when the switch is tripped.

thanks dhust...
I pulled my Duo Themostat apart this morning and the wiring is just as you have stated. (same colors)

Hopefully the new RiteTemp will come by this weekend and I'll put it in.

It came in the mail yesterday. When I get home this morning I'll check it out. Prolly put it in on Thursday-Friday.

Their website rocks with info...I've been reading it closely. Doesn't look complicated...

I'm installing today. When I'm finished...I'll post the schematics for future "MODDERS".

Here's the plan: (confirmed by RiteTemp folks themselves)

I'm hooking it up, and not adding a LO/HI FAN switch...like others have done with similar mods.
I've found a way to have use of both HI/LO functions, without adding a switch. I'll simply put the thermostat's FAN SWITCH in the AUTO position for LO FAN operation, or FAN SWITCH in the ON position for HI FAN.

I've drawn up the scheme for posting already, but won't post the directions until I CONFIRM FOR MYSELF that it works. This prolly won't happen until I return from the lake on Sunday!

Stay tuned fellow "Modders!"
