Try to get one that is made for oil heat, the installation is easy only two wires, and the instructions make it easy.

Can I use a household thermostat in an RV for heat and air?


As long as it is a 24 volt A/C system, which most are (look at the old thermostat in your RV) , and as long as it is a digital thermostat. Do NOT use one with mercury in it like the old round brown Honeywell that everybody has. The non-digital thermostats that use "snap-action" springs can be used, but they are mostly junk. Spend $35 on a decent digital and you will be fine.

Round honeywell thermostat


Sounds like you have a T86 thermostat...take the round front cover off to view the Mercury switch. Watch the bulb when you change the temperature to a higher setpoint. If the bulb makes contact when rotating it up, and the furnace doesn't go into a call for heat, then it could be the thermostat, wiring, or furnace problem.

Honeywell programmable thermostat - was installed per instructions in manual and now the furnace runs non-stop unless I move switch to "off." The old (round mercury switch) thermostat was wired red t


If you are unsure about which wire goes where, that may be the source of your problem. The color coding can be confusing when changing from old to new. I pulled the instructions for my Honeywell CT3400A thermostat and found you can call Honeywell Consumer Services at 1-800-468-1502 M-F 7:30 am to 5 pm CT

My murcery thermostat is acting like a switch


Check to be sure the spring isn't binding in some way preventing it from moving freely. It is possible the mounting screws may be too tight deforming the plastic a little. Also be sure it is absolutely level. It is critical on the mercury type thermostats.

Replaced mercury thermostat w/Honeywell CT87K - doesn't work!


You need a specific thermostat for a Wall Furnace it is a Millivolt Thermostat and not a 24v standard thermostat....usually it will work anyway however if the powerpile (generator produces millivolts from the pilot light) is weak it may not be producing enough...or the Pilot light may be dirty and lazy...won't produce enough millivolts ...or you can have bad or dirty contacts or connections....or a combination of any of the above.....a 24v Thermostat and particularly a non-mercury thermostat has too much resistance in it for a millivolt system....as your Wall Furnace (other than the fan) runs on less than 1 volt

Honeywell round mercury thermostat - heat not coming on


If you tip the mercury switch so that it makes contact and the furnace doesn't start, it isn't the t-stat. Check the connections, then start checking the furnace.
In any case, ditch the mercury t-stat (recycle it properly) and get a new programmable one if at all posible. It will pay for itself many times over by turning your heat down in the middle of the night and back up by morning.

The honeywell tradeline thermostat would work as a direct replacement (no mercury in the new ones), however if your using just heaters and no cooling system off of it, you could Heat only thermostat from honeywell that would replace your unit as well. Both at available at Ace Hardware with the heat only unity being roughly 7 dollars cheaper.
