There does not appear to be an "Auto" position for the fan. It has low, medium and high. I will re-check the operation but I am reasonable sure that was the way it works. I am going to head out and check right now.
Yep, after checking I have confirmed that is the way this model is designed to operate. I talked a Dometic dealer at PPL here in Houston the other day and I could get another ceiling adapter and thermostat. It was about $100 and change for an analog and closer to $200 for a digital thermostat, all in.
Randy, that is nice that yours works the way I prefer right out of the box.
Ken, I thought about running the wires for a thermostat and being new to RVing I was not sure if running wires inside internal walls was an option. I can certainly see how it might be more trouble in the exterior walls where the fiberglass and interior panels are bonded (in my case I think Cedar Creek bonds both sides to aluminum superstructure). I agree that surface mounted wiring is unattractive. My home theater is not ran in that fashion and if that is my only option on the front AC unit it will remain installed as is.
I was not sure if there is a way to run stuff inside interior walls. I see satellite dish antennas being installed and was wondering how folks are getting a triple LNB distributed to a BH room, living and bedroom.
Oh well, I used to have a sailboat in a previous life (before kids) and it was similar in that there are many systems packed into a small space. Looks like I will get it all figured out in due time.
