Have other replaced the thermostat in the camper?  Have you relocated it or changed it to digital?  I’m considering doing both for the next mod.  Pictures would be great if you have any.

I don’t have pictures but I just did it.  My thermostat was original.  I didn’t think it was cycling on and off correctly and this past weekend I was chatting with someone who recommended to go digital and described how easy it was (thanks Phil)

It was only 2 wires.  I put it back in the same spot.  I have heard of others relocating it due to it being too close to the furnace or being in an odd spot.  Mine was in the dinette away from the furnace.  I did not see any good place to relocate it to with out a lot of trouble so I just put it back in the same spot.  It cost $19 at home depot.  It is programable but I don’t think I will be using that feature.

I replaced mine with a digital, but left it in the same spot.  Haven’t yet used the furnace though, because we have only needed heat when we have had electric and I used  a ceramic heater.  I am boondocking in November though, so I will try it then.
