Thermostat

I am thinking of changing my manual thermostat to a digital but I don't know which one or even if I can. Any help would be great. Pups a 2015 rockwood hw276.

Is this for the furnace or thee A/C?

Got a model or a picture of the existing one?

I suspect it's the manual knob on the A/C, and if it is, then you can't really do anything about it.

I did the swap twice years ago, once on our pup and once on our hybrid. Very easy mod to do. We had a furnace and AC but if you don't have AC just hook up the furnace wires.

coleman makes a digital replacement,its pricey buttery easy wire to wire replacement.theres no way I would try to install box store thermostat and take a chance of damaging my AC or furnace. Just Google it,it will come right up or look on Amazon

To each their own, but there have been tons of people that have changed out the thermostats with 'box store' models and I have yet to hear of someone damaging their units by doing that. Myself included!

If you have the same type I do, where it sits inside a little pocket, there are threads on here about people using a Honeywell model.
