And another mod bites the dust. What is left on your list?

Yah Myron, tell me. I want to know what my next project will be since I always seem to be one step behind you and Mark

I've never been thrilled with the basic thermostat. Always figured sooner or later I'd snap off the lever as its' so hard to move. So when I saw your mod it jogged my memory that in my "junk too good to throw out" dept. I had a new unused thermostat. I don't have a junk drawer, I have a junk room

Unfortunately it's different from yours (Honeywell) and if I understand the wiring diagram correctly all I have to do is connect to R and W even though the terminal blocks don't seem to quite agree with the wiring diagram.

There is a mod that you can do to the thermostat so that the lever will move more freely. However, you will have to ask Reace, since he did a tour of the trailers at an Escape Rally and did the mod. I wasn't paying close attention, but I think it involved a pen knife and took a couple minutes.
I find that if I am cold, I turn the thermostat up and if I am too warm, I turn it down. I don't really need to know that it is 72.34F

Thanks Glenn but the digital one is just~nicer. Aside from be easier to operate I think the thing I'll like the most is being able to reach up in the dark and tap the button up or down. Knowing that each tap changes the setting 1* rather than moving the short lever and not really knowing how much you've adjusted it.

To each their own.

Given the inconsistent labeling - it's hard to be sure. You can verify it with a VOM or continuity tester.

Connect it to the suspect terminals with the thermostat off or not calling for heat - should be open. Change the temp setting so it calls for heat - should be closed.

Thanks Doug. I'm a little bit puzzled why their instructions are what they are. Thought maybe I was missing something obvious. But, yes, I'll check the operation first before I install.

You're freaking me out. No, not the thought of a breakfast burrito, well, come to think of it the thought of a breakfast burrito sort of does freak me out No, it's just that I've just come in from figuring out how I was going to mount the new thermostat. I've made an "adapter plate" because I wanted to use the existing holes and not drill more holes. Then I see your post and you've made an adapter plate. Great minds and all that

Exacto-mundo! Drill no un-necessary hole before its time.
