Do not question the culinary wisdom of Sir Myron. If you've never had the delectability that is the Breakfast Burrito, you don't know what you're missing.:

Somehow, I'm sort of happy about that

OK, done. Thanks Myron for jogging my memory that I had a new digital thermostat in my "resource materials" area. Don't have it mounted on exotic Tennessee Aromatic Cedar Coffee wood like yours but my salvaged oak does the job. Thermostat-free, adaptor plate-free; my favourite kind of project

What an improvement, as I said before, just being able to reach up in the middle of the night to adjust it without struggling with the factory unit is a huge improvement.

You guys with the new thermostats, have you calibrated them and set them to the right heat and anticipator selections? There are some adjustments that should be made for set up, if I recall.

Those (and other) settings are only for at least 3-wire setups with a separate fan wire. Our furnaces are all 2-wire, all (heat AND fan) or nothing

There are some settable options such as: display format, heating cycles per hour, and something called "adaptive intelligent recovery" that allows the thermostat to "learn" how long it takes to reach temperatures etc. Sounds similar to the function of an anticipator. Don't know, all I know is it works great so far.

Wait, wait.. I'm trying to catch up. Those that are thinking of modding the original thermostat... is there a problem if you DON'T have A/C. My thumb hurts every time I turn off the furnace in Ten Forward, but I didn't get the digital thermostat during my build, because I thought it was only a good option for those with A/C... which I don't have!

No problem! We have AC but the wiring for the AC does not have anything to do with the thermostat...at least in our trailer and since you have no AC there is nothing to worry about!

Just two wires going to your heat thermostat. The one we used is for heat only. Easy-peasy. Go for it. We hated struggling with the on/off switch too...that's mainly why we changed it!

What Fran said, Donna. And what Doug said (post#39.) Only thing to worry about is making certain the thermostat you buy is millivolt compatible, meaning it likes 12 volts.

Nice adaptive recovery, Ron.
