RE: New thermostat question?

Gonna check tomorrow on the A/C. The identifying labels on this camper disappeared long ago. Thanks for the stat. Check in tomorrow.

RE: New thermostat question?

Okan-Star were going with your plan! My job is to climb up on the roof and verify the A/C model as well as drill a hole and run some wires. Garrett will hook it up. Again you guys were great and knowledgeable. I'll let you know how it turns out. Joe

RE: New thermostat question?

Speaking to my friend Garrett this morning, he threw out this problem on one of his HVAC forums and the idea of just replacing the motor and the board would do the trick to change it to a single stage furnace. They all agreed the A/C really doesn't matter and that could just run on low. That would give me any one of hundreds of stat's and the wiring would be similar but changed to run on low. He is not sure about this angle but he said the motor is about 150 bucks and the board about 80. I'll show him this thread this afternoon. I told him I am leaning towards the info on this thread. Keep in mind this is the first time Garrett has ever worked on an RV. Thanks for all the info, Joe

RE: New thermostat question?

Thanks! Is the stat your showing me the same as mine? It sure looks it but the wires are thicker and mines a dual stage. If I can do this it would be great. Actually, I'll have my Hvac friend Garrett take a look at your post. I can afford that... LOL Thank you very much my friend, I'll let you know how I make out.

RE: New thermostat question?

The problem is, when I turn the heat on the A/C turns on and off a couple of times and then it runs normally. That's it really, I've been looking all day for 2 stage thermostats and really haven't found much more that I told you about. I'll let you know what Coleman and dometic say but we already know what dometic is going to say. I'm not buying a new furnace that's for sure. Sometimes I wish I could afford some new stuff.

RE: New thermostat question?

First time not so bad! The wires go through a hole in the bathroom wall with no pigtails that I can see. https://i.imgur.com/o3o12M2l.jpg

RE: New thermostat question?

RE: New thermostat question?

OK, just checking in... I'm not having good luck so far. There is no new old stock I can find on the web. I had a friend of mine who is an A/C heating guy look at it and tell me the problem is the two stage units. Mostly the heater. Even if we hook it up to work on low speed which he can do it will want to work on the two stage system. He's doing some research on his end and I'll see him at church tomorrow. The only dual stage thermostat I could find that actually says it's duel stage is this one. I don't have an electric heater in my A/C but he doesn't think it will be a problem. Of course the wiring harnesses are not present so we'll have to cut some wires which will void the return. I'm going to call Coleman on Monday and ask about this thermostat and I sent an email to Dometic requesting there help. But like said above they are going to want me to buy a new unit which I won't do. https://www.campingworld.com/digital-two-stage-thermostat-heatcoolheat-pump-black-105762.html?cgid=inside-rv#q=thermostats&start=12&cgid=outside-rv%2Fair-conditioners-accessories%2Fthermostats

RE: New thermostat question?

OK, Thanks to all. I just happened to check back before going to bed. The unit has 6 wires coming from the wall all hooked into a board. 5 of the wires are tiny and multi colored and the 6th wire is larger and blue. It is a two stage heater and A/C. Yes it turns to a lower fan setting when close to temp. I will take pics tomorrow for all to see. Can someone remind me on how to post pics? This unit was recommended on amazon, Take it or leave it... I will call Coleman on Monday to see if this will do it. I hate dometic. https://colemanmachac.com/coleman-mach-wall-thermostat-7330g3351/ Thanks again to all of you.

Thanks very much. That gives many more options.

RE: New thermostat question?

I can use a home model in an RV? Isn't mine 12 volt? Like I said, no clue... Thanks, Joe

New thermostat question?

My Lance 1181 came with a Atwood hydro flame 38535 dual stage thermostat and I see that is is no longer available. I have looked but I am not a digital kind of guy. I simply don't know what to get. Would this model work? Coleman 8330-3862 83303862 Digital Thermostat can be found here, https://colemanmachac.com/coleman-mach-wall-thermostat-8330-3862/

RE: 1993 Lance 480 Truck Camper Roof Rack

If the crossbars are new they should have instructions as to do it. From what I remember they had a slide mechanism that tightened down with a plastic screw. Theirs a groove in the top of the bars already installed on the roof. I don't remember if I had to remove the rear piece of the installed bars or not to install the crossbar slider. I don't think so, I think they just go in the groove and turn. Mine have been up there for years and have a roof pod attached. I can't really answer your question better than that but I can take some pics after work if it's still daylight. This is all from memory, so not really reliable. So I'm told... LOL
