Honeywell thermostat

Someone on the other forum with an SOB said he bought a Honeywell RTH 2410B thermostat and can set the time on it. Is there any reason this would not work on Escapes? $30 at Ace.

Do you mean a programmable thermostat? The cheap one I installed for heat only on my old trailer was such and I liked it. I would like to swap out the digital on the Escape with a programmable at some point but haven't needed the heat or AC as yet so I haven't looked into it.

I guess it is programmable since I think he said he could set the time for it to come on. I don't know how the one works that Escape has as an option compared to this one.

What purpose do any of you see a programmable thermostat being?

I had purposely looked for a simple one, not programmable. I do much prefer the ease of viewing and setting the temperature on the digital. While we do use a programmable one at home, in the trailer we are right by it all the time, and will adjust it according to our needs, which vary all the time. If we are not inside we keep it low, as well as when we are in bed. Only should we be doing some task inside, or entertaining on a miserable night, will we turn it up a bit.

In answer to the first question, no reason at all why it wouldn't work.

But, as Jim asks, why a programmable thermostat in a trailer given the different situation from home use? Or is it just to have a clock by the bed?

How about in the morning to have the temp rise automatically.

Might want to see if Dometic has a programmable; the digital Dometic turns off your fan (on cooling) when the AC cycle is completed, the regular ETI version does not. Don't know if there is a difference in the wiring between the two units.

That's too much like having to get up at a pre-programmed time to go to work.

How about, roll over, reach up, tap, tap on the up arrow and by the time you convinced yourself to crawl out of your nice comfy bed the trailer's warm and toasty.

If I am not headed outside right away, this is exactly what I want to do. Don't want that noisy thing starting up before we need it, and that time differs every day.
