RE: Dometic Mother Board

I installed a Dinosaur board in my Dometic refrigerator, but it was a different model than yours. The Dinosaur board was clearly superior to the OEM Dometic board in component selection and design. Maybe they have a replacement for your Dometic board.

RE: Need help finding an interior wall outlet...

Screw-type terminals where you wrap a wire around a screw are not appropriate for a vibration environment, such as in an RV. You need to use clamp style, spring style (also called back-stab), or the original punch-down style used in self-contained devices. Also, installing self-contained devices is much easier with a special tool for the job. For a single outlet, it will probably be cheaper to just have a professional do it. Many will claim that household devices are superior to self-contained devices, but that's not really verifiable. Both are usually certified by UL and CCA (check for that) and both are allowed by the US National Electric Code.

RE: Upgrading Thermostat to Digital

It will depend on whether you have +12v available at the thermostat. I don't believe the AR7815 needs it. A digital thermostat does. If you don't have +12v available, your best choice is a battery-powered thermostat. There are dozens of residential ones to choose from. I replaced mine with the Coleman Mach RV Comfort.PHP, but I also wanted the separate gas/electric heat settings, since I also installed the electric heat kit in my AC unit. They have a model without that feature. If you're not comfortable sorting out all of the wires, I would call any HVAC repair company and have them do it. They install similar units daily. There is nothing special about RV thermostat circuitry (other than using 12v instead of 24v). Whatever you install, it will be far more stable and comfortable than the one you have.
