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?

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.

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/
