Just at a quick glance I see that green on the old thermo is connected to the GND terminal, on your new one you connected it to RC1??? Shouldn't it be to the G terminal (I would suspect it is ground and is also on the far right side of both terminal blocks).

Okay, I got it working properly actually using the instruction provided 1st. I don't know what I had hooked up different from what was suggested but it worked when I went through and did it again. Unfortunately the Hunter XXX is a piece of crap; the latch that holds down the cover over the control panel is so flimsy that it broke the 1st time I closed it. I imagine that why it was on clearance. So I'll find another, hope the wiring goes a bit easier.

I liked the features of this one. It had a Daylight Savings mode and a Home today mode which I thought would be really helpful. But I imagine if I just replace it with the same model the latch on the new one is also likely to break.

Thermostat change out

House models are 24VAC NOT DC. Also programmable models require constant voltage to maintain the internal clock unless they are battery powered unit. Therefor you have VERY limited choices of thermostats that be used on your MH.

Nice Job! We, too changed the analog DuoTherm out and replaced it with a digital about half-way through the season - primarily in prep for a Fall camping trip, which, for a variety of reasons, we never got to make. I know it works, and now look forward to using same in the Spring!

Just curious on some relatively long-term feedback regarding battery life on the digital t-stat mod. I was under the impression that the batteries in these type of stats were merely to hold programming in the event of a power failure, or to allow "arm-chair" programming. With the relays in these stats now being powered by relatively low capacity batteries, are you finding reasonable battery life?

My t'stat takes one or two AAA's (I think). I put fresh batteries there, in my smoke detector, CO detector, television remotes, DVD player remote, all at the same time in the beginning of the season (April or May), then take them out when I winterize (late October). They last all season.

Very good plan, FI. Changing them ALL at the same time is a good idea, instead of replacing them all at random times when they go dead.
