Hey all I wanted to see if there was anyone in an RV that has upgraded their thermostat to something like a nest? I have a dometic AC at the moment and didn't know if it was something that could be done or even should be done.

Not a nest but a digital, programmable Honeywell, battery operated. Great improvement.

"Microair easy touch" thermostat is designed for the Rv and the Dometic . Rv Geeks youtube channel did a review on it recently. A little on the expensive side,($250 but discount codes are available) but so is the Nest!. IF you have wifi/bluetooth, it's controllable with your phone from anywhere. I have a constantly on hotspot in the RV so its on my upgrade list later on. It looks and reviews like just the ticket! Plug and play directly to the phone line cable ....no wiring problems . Standard home thermostats are tricky to not useable in an RV I'm told.

Many Dometic have a proprietary digital communication that is probably not compatible with anything smart.
