It's a Dometic 3314080 in black. Here's a link to a site selling them, it's odd, I'd rather send you the Dometic link and let you decide where to buy it but google didn't bring that model number up.

Downside to using 1 thermostat is you lose the dual-zone ability - the temperature is only measured at the one point (the description didn't say it included an extra temperature probe). That could leave you with a comfortable living area and a hot bedroom. At home I've considered changing to mini-split heat pumps so I can heat/cool each individual room (individual thermostats for each room).

The comfort center 2 is dual zone capable, the remote sensor kits are available separate.

Yeah but you only need the dual zone if you have 2 AC units right, if I bought this to install in a 2015 231KSS Roo it would work correct

Yesterday we finished up the pin box hitch for a bike rack:


Click for a crap-ton of step-by-step build pictures


We also installed the SteadyFast stabilizers. Beautiful packaging and pretty clear instructions made for a straight-forward install.

And today, I mounted my water pressure regular inside of my wet bay with bungees using an idea someone else used for hanging a box of gloves - taking a length of bungee and making 2 loops on either side:

Mine does measure temperature for zone 1 and 2. The furnace is a single unit, so when it's on the whole house gets heat but the AC is individually controlled by temperature. I can even check the temperature in each zone at the thermostat.

Replaced the ceiling fan that was replaced at the Goshen rally in Aug it was making more noise on low than the one they replaced even tho' the new one probably had less than 20 total hours on it. We got a 44" 5 blade Harbor Breeze at Lowes for less than $75. Took about 1.5 hrs to remove the old one and assemble and install the new one. We have 2 el cheapo fans we gave $29 ea for on our back porch that have run probably 3-400 hrs and still are quiet. FR must install strictly reject ceiling fans as both of ours had less than 100 hrs on both of them combined. Oh well, it is what it is.

For me its been more luck of the draw.
The one over our bed at home is silent except for it going through the air, it was installed 18yrs ago and wasn't expensive.

We've had several over the living room, none has been as quiet and at least one was returned because of humming noise.

We have 4 in the house and now one in the 5er that make no noise. Maybe some vendor pays FR to take their reject fans.

We finally got our Rockwood back from the dealer whose had it for almost a month. He replaced the awning free (it had some cracks so FR gave me a new one.) I also had a slide out topper installed and we love it. She's back parked but I have to go install the awning protectors when it's warmer than 30 (and will bring the batteries and propane back home)

Made plans for a winter campout in central PA in January. Just because it is winterized doesn't mean the wheels can't move.

French Creek State Park. This will be the 4th annual campout for a group of R-podders, although this year I'll be pulling my new-to-me Salem there and we've had non-pods there several times, too. This is the 2nd year we are joining up with group from a popup forum. In past years we've gotten down to 8 F, 10 F, and 2 years ago I towed for 3 hours in a blizzard to get there.

All are welcome. I'll post a link here for a posting I made on another forum, not sure if that is ok here... 4th annual winter campout - French Creek St. Pk PA - R-pod Owners Forum

When I was a kid, I camped once at French Creek SP with the Boy Scouts back in the mid-1960's. We had a couple inches of snow. We'd pinched our tent on a slope and my sleeping bag slid out during the night. I woke up half in and half out, and covered with snow!

New power outlet

Well after 3 years, decided to quite using extension cords. Installed a 30 amp RV box with burying the conduit with #8- 3 conductor copper wire. Made a home run from my panel in the garage to the pillar on my carport. What use to take me oneday to do took 3 days, just can't do stuff as fast anymore. Still use my surge protector on it that I used to use before I got my EMS.

Just an inquire from an electrician...unless I core my driveway and put a box in the concrete to plug in exactly where my coaches electrical service sits, I still have to roll out my 50 amp cord to plug into box somewhere. Of course having the correct service is wonderful but if your not living in your coach while at home....ie wanting to run the AC, all you need to do is charge the batteries and all other AC appliances will work of the standard 15 amp extension cord which I leave plugged in and available from the exact same place, second alternative on my house where I would put a box.

I just wired a separate 20a circuit to a 30a rv outlet and use the regular shoreline. Can run the ac if necessary and everything else except the MW, toaster, etc. but we don't use those at home anyway.
