Is the Honeywell for cool only or both heat and cool? Many of these are not compatible with the OEM systems. What make and model was the old thermostat?

I will post it again here........guess you didn't see it before. Is the Honeywell for cool only or both heat and cool? Many of these are not compatible with the OEM systems. What make and model was the old thermostat?

Expert:  Randall replied 2 months ago.

D​ometic used some analog slide control thermostats and a number of digital models, but that number isn't one of them. Are you sure that it wasn't a Coleman product?

Old one.......let me take a look at the Honeywell model you mentioned and get back to you shortly.

Expert:  Randall replied 2 months ago.

That is a digital thermostat and not going to be compatible with the old control box you have now. If you want to upgrade to a digital thermostat you should consider a Dometic Single Zone thermostat kit. Comes with the thermostat and control box. About $80 or so and available in many places online. I am adding a link to one. I can help you wire that one up. https://www.makariosrv.com/dometic-single-zone-lcd-white-thermostat-upgrade-kit-3316230-000/
