I wonder if a digital thermostat could be hooked into the heat strip that's in the air conditioner??? Anyone know???

It would take some creativity with the wiring but I'm sure you could hook up a thermostat to both heat and cooling if you know what to connect to. You could even control fan speed.

Atwood makes one.

I would like one with time of day and day of week settings.

I looked into this some time back and read these home thermostats didn't work with RV furnaces. I never followed up on it because my original one was working fine and I had more pressing concerns to focus on.

It seems like a fine idea.

"Smart" or programmable thermostats that: a) Use only on-board battery power and b) Indicates that it will work with "microvolt" (millivolt?) systems, can be used in an RV. If it's not clear how, call the mfgs. customer help line. Honeywell is especially helpful in these matters.
