How to Install a Digital Thermostat in Your RV
Posted in RV & Camper Maintenance on August 8, 2017 Last Updated on August 8, 2017
If your RV’s thermostat is anything like ours has always been, it doesn’t work well. Our thermostat was getting bad to the point where barley nudging the temperature adjustment plus or minus 1 degree would cause a 10 degree or more difference for when the AC would cut on.
Taking a break from driving all over the country for 3 years, staying in the Florida summer heat – we had to solve this problem, and did so using a Honeywell Programmable Thermostat. This new thermostat works fantastic, and keeps our camper’s temperature regulated and comfortable.
The programmable features are neat too, in case you want it cooler during the day, a little warmer at night, and frigid like the arctic on the weekends.
You will need a small screwdriver, also known as a precision screwdriver, to loosen the screws in the thermostat. You can pick up a precision screwdriver set like this one on Amazon, usually for well under $20.
We have handy photos of the process, after the video.
**Always remember to turn off the breaker or disconnect power to any device before servicing it**
