It is getting difficult to find a battery operated non programable thermostat - This one from Hunter will work. The Just Right model is obsolete, but available from eBay. Both only work for heat - You can use a Hutch Mountain Easy Touch thermostat to replace the stock Domestic one that does heat & AC. Be sure to use the menu to select the correct model.

I dumped the horrid mechanical thermostats in both my 19 and 21.

Either of these work really well.

Do you have the Hutch Mtn? Expensive but looks useful- I'd like to be able to control the temp from outside the trailer. And hate the Dometic digital. It may go on my wish list.

I used one very much like this, https://www.amazon.com/Honeywell-TH5.../dp/B000GGPMO2

mine is a honeywell, but the up/down buttons are triangular, but the display and everything else looks the same. its probably an earlier version o the same thing. works great in my Escape. Ah, looks like mine is a RTH5100B.




and here's how its wired,

Yes. It takes a bit of getting used to in that the temperature set method is a bit confusing, but once you have it set up it is great. I rarely use the WiFi capability because I often change my trailer router between AT&T & Verizon modems, but the Bluetooth works well from 20' away from the trailer.

I have bluetooth propane tank monitors, bluetooth battery monitor, and my compressor cooler has bluetooth controls (especially useful because when on DC, it reports the DC voltage, so I can monitor the state of my truck battery thats powering it), but I'm not sure I see much use for remote control of the inside temperature.
