At least ours works. Be interesting to see what the problem is with that guys t-stat. We just go from "open that door, I'm burning up" to "I'm kinda cold, what's that thing set on?" Wife is especially sensitive to dry hot air. Why we have a heat pump system at the house.

Anyone willing to spill the beans on what the Microair runs when on sale?

Foldbac, you didn't mention why you need a new stat. if it's because it's going squirely on you, try removing the cover. The CT thermostat is super sensitive and the foam in the cover goes bad if you push it too hard, which is basically push it at all. Removing the cove will tell you if it's a bad stat or just a warn out cover. I Emailed Dometic and they sent me new covers at no charge and said to only just touch it. I'm on my second year with the new covers and they are still working fine. I only touch the controls and no more phantom changes when you walk by them.
I did look at the Microair and have kept them on the back burner as a plan B if I need them. They are certainly a great stat but as you have seen a pricy solution.

Found this thread thankfully as Im looking to upgrade my Dometic digital thermostat.

I currently dont have the option to leave the fan running constantly like you could on the older analog thermostat.

Does anyone know if I will gain that option with the micro air thermostat if my current system does not have the option?

I would like the fan to keep circulating air even if the furnace is not running.

When I bought mine, it was a Black Friday sale, 15% off ($37.35).

I canít answer for certain since my camper is in storage, but I have only ever wanted to run the fan on the AC not on the furnace. I donít recall even doing it by accident, so I am going to lean towards no.

You need to post a lot more information; what kind of thermostat/furnace/A/C unit? Year/make/model of RV? Without that information you can't get much useful information.

I have the microair and love it. As far as I know it will only provide the functions your controller allows (with some enhancements).

On another note, WHY would you want the furnace fan running when it's not heating? If it runs constantly once the heat shuts down the ducts get cold and then blow cold air....then forces the furnace to come back on....why? If you want air circulation just run a fan (or 2 or 3) as I do.

Thanks, I just bought a 2017 Keystone Bullet 272BHS. Has a Dominic AC but not sure if its 13.5 or 15K. The stock stat is the digital with 3 buttons Mode, up and down. It has ducted heat and AC both are controlled by the stat. I was thinking being ducted leaving the fan on would give me a similar affect as running fans to keep consistent temps. I also like the sound of the fan running constantly vs kicking on and off. The older analog stat also had a fan speed option that would be nice to have as well.

Are you talking about running the a/c fan contantly and not the furnace fan? From your previous post it reads to me and I think others, that you want the furnace fan to run constantly.

Here is the manual. Give it a read, if all you want is to change the fan setting, you might find what you already have is all you need.

Thank you. I should have looked into it more. Mine doesn't seem to be able to switch between low and high(says it does but no noticeable change) but I am able to get the fan to stay on thanks to you.

You probably won't hear much difference (if any) in the HIGH/LOW fan speed RPM on an RV air conditioner. The OEM Coleman fan motor runs 1660/1525 RPM, so you can "barely hear the difference" no matter how hard you try...

https://www.campingworld.com/coleman...5%2F1660%20RPM.

The fan motor description at this link has the RPM specs for the OEM fan.

Dometic, Air Excel and Coleman are pretty much "mirror images" on specs.....

I can confirm what John said. Previously, I thought my fan only had one speed, but there is a diagnostic process that switches fan from low to high and switching back and forth you can hear the difference (although barely).
