Recently, I installed a digital thermostat (Honeywell RTH-221, (< $20.00 at Home Depot) in my travel trailer and was very pleased at how much better it was at maintaining a consistent temperature in the trailer.
However, I have just discovered that when the interior of the trailer gets below freezing, the thermostat will not come on until it is warmed up to above 32 degrees F.
I suppose I could modify this one with a bypass switch....but why ....
Can anyone recommend a digital thermostat that, without modifications, will allow the RV furnace to come on when the thermostate is below freezing?
Thanks, Steve

yeah it could be the temperatures in your RV are out of the specifications of your digital T-stat, something that you would come across at a Home Depot. Try your local plumbing/A/C wholesaler, they usually have a wider range of digital t-stats...more reliable brands also...$20 is relatively cheap for a digital t-stat.
