Thermostat for 2019 23iKSS Roo.

Hi there. New to the Forum. Just picked up a 2019 23iKSS Roo. Problem is it's over an hour away in storage. One thing I do remember from the walk through is a typical analog thermostat for heating and cooling.
I'm trying to find out what thermostat I might need for this model and when I do get out there, the new thermostat will be in my hand.
Appreciate any help. Thanks.

This was the one recommended to me for a direct replacement from analog to digital Honeywell RTH5100B 1025 Deluxe Manual Thermostat https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002RL9BIM..._xDzWDbCDCXNPS

If it has an analog thermostat the A/C is most likely a Coleman unit. In that case the thermostat that Gerry suggested would work fine.

Having said that, if it is a Coleman, I wouldn't be so quick to replace it unless you just want a digital and/or programmable unit.

Just wanted to note that this Thermostat is not programmable.

Hi and thanks for the welcome. I just remember on the walk through that the thermostat was the cheap analog slide switch type. My experience with these is they are extremely inaccurate. The digital version accuracy much closer. Thanks again.

Why would you care how precise it is? Just turn it on, and bump it up or down a degree or two until you are comfortable. Maybe even make a pencil mark on the thermostat when you find the sweet spot. Use the on/off switch and don't touch the adjustment again.

Our experience has been that there's not one good spot anyway. Even a digital thermostat with 0.001% accuracy won't do. Here are some reasons why:
1) Humidity. Your temperature sweet spot varies with humidity. When everyone's been breathing all night and the humidity soars, you'll be comfortable at a different temperature than when you've aired out the unit and there's just one or two.

2) Heat/cooling varies across different regions of the trailer. It's especially evident in our 38' destination trailer. The furnace is located near the bedroom at the back. If we leave the thermostat at the comfort level for the living area at the front, we roast at night. The air conditioner is at the front, so the bedroom is hotter than the living area when it's operating, too.

Thanks Larry. Just have never been a fan of the slide analogs with those bi metallic strips which make and break. Your comments are definitely appreciated.
