    I have a new duo-therm dometic thermostat to replace my existing duo-therm thermostat. Both units have 6 wires on them but the directions have have for the new one don't match the labels and colors on the old one.



    the old one has the following colours and labels



    RH - red wire (that goes to the furnace)

    W - white wire (that goes to the furnace)



    G - green wire that is a ground (part of 4 wires that go to AC)

    RC - red wire that has +12 volts (part of 4 wires that go to AC)

    Y - white wire that is part of 4 wires that go to the AC

    H - blue wire that is part of 4 wires that go to the AC



    I used a meter on the G and RC wire to verify that I have power



    Below is the instructions for the wires for the new thermostat



    HI-FAN - blue wire

    GND - black or green wire

    FAN - orange or tan

    COOL - yellow

    FURNACE - white

    +7.5 - red or red/white



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    with the old thermostat the AC works but the furnace does not start at all....I replaced the relay on the furnace because if I bypass the relay the furnace motor does run...just replacing the relay didn't make the furnace run so I decided to get a new thermostat



    when I replaced the thermostat with the new one I used the following wiring but then nothing worked (not even the AC) - so I need some help wiring the new thermostat



    HI-FAN - the blue wire (H on the old one)

    GND - green wire (G on the old one)

    FAN - red wire (RH on the old one....I don't think this is correct)

    COOL - white wire from AC (Y on the old one)

    FURNACE - white wire from furnace (W on the old one)

    +7.5 - red wire from AC (RC on the old one)



    The old duo-therm by dometic has part number 3105058....if that helps at all.

    thanks

    I am trying to wire up a duo therm 3105058 A/C thermostat in an rv I recently purchased. The wires are no where near the color as listed in the earlier responses. They are 1 red , 1 white, 1 green, 1 light grey, 1 dark grey, & 1 blue. Does anyone know who to wire this up? The old one was already removed.

    I looked everywhere for clarification on this mod All the tips have RW + RC jumpered with a "BLACK OR GREEN" wire ground going to them....that didn't make any sense electronically to me so I put together a schematic diagram and just installed the mod last night...it works perfectly in cool, heat, fan speeds, everything.http://burdick.home.digital.net/ke4ozd/R... RC and RW are unjumpered in mine since each could theoretically have a different power source, otherwise you could be working on one alone and the darn thing energize on you from the other units power source.

Generally on most thermostats R is the power to the thermostat, W is for heating, Y is for cooling, and G is for fan operation.

Have a duo therm ac and the low ac and low fan not work -


Thermostat on wall, or manual controls at AC? Did it work for you on low before now? Reason I ask, is that normally they are only a 2 speed fan ( low and high) so if it's a wall thermostat and has been changed from original, perhaps it the way the thermostat is wired.

Rv air conditioning


You may have to remove your filter & look for a model # of your unit, so we can pinpoint your wiring to the thermostat. Usually the terminals on the thermostats are labeled -RC-RH- etc, and you simply move old to new of the same. A lot of times some manufacturers will use phone cable form AC unit to thermostat, and mix up the colors, that's the reason for going to the AC and see what color is used from there. It could be red from control box, connected to green wire to thermostat for example. Thats where you note it and wire accordingly.(terminal calling for red wire, would now be green) If your stumped, get back to us with that model#.
