Whose thermostat are you using? Not familiar with a "6400" as such by that number.

I am not familiar with that for RV use, so I will opt out of this question and let another tech offer something. I like to stick with the brand of the A/C so I know it will work without modifications.

I see nobody responded here. See the attached link and tell me if this is what you are trying to hook up here?

That is the thermostat I am tryin to install
Expert:  Randall replied 10 months ago.

That isn't going to be a good match for what you have. You would be limited to just a single fan speed for one. What was the old thermostat make and part number if you have it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It's a Coleman-Mach, couldn't find a model #. 2 speed fan doesn't seem to be working anyway
Expert:  Randall replied 10 months ago.

I will go ahead and opt out of this as I don't have the information on the interchange. Perhaps another tech here might.
