I have a 2005 salem TT and has forced air ducted furnace. to turn if off you just turn down the thermostat to where it says off which is basically 50 degrees is what it says.
theres really no off and on switch. well its been getting cold here (23 last night) and i noticed it was running last night and this morning. is there a way to really shut it off without pulling the batteries out or unplugging it. im getting ready to go elk hunting and its using my propane running it.

No, The HD digital uses two AA batteries for power. So if not wanted/needed you can either turn it off or take the batteries out. They are way more accurate so the temp swings inside the RV are diminished greatly. Making a more comfortable environment.
If you buy the correct digital t stat it will require its' own batteries in order for the T stat to work.
Read the package carefully, some digital home T stats like the Honeywell "Round" series are designed to sneak power from the furnace to charge a battery or a capacitor. This type will not work correctly since home furnaces are designed for 24V AC and your RV furnace will only have 12V DC.
The T stats you are looking for should state requires batteries.
