coleman analog thermostat

We have a 1995 5th with a Coleman analog thermostat. Looking to upgrade to a digital one. Having problems figuring out which one to get that would be compatible. Ours has 8 wires going into it. We have a Coleman Mach roof air 15,000 btu and a Coleman gas furnace 30,000 btu. Furnace and according were replaced 2-3 yrs ago. ago No heat pump or basement heat per say. Looked at some on line and we either have too many wires or not enough. Would like to stay with coleman brand. Any help would be great. Thanks

If you could post a picture of the sub base showing the wires and connections it would be a big help.

You only need five wires to run the basics. One for hi fan, low fan heat, cool and power. Since this system is 12 volts, changing the thermostat is relatively simple. There are lots of online instructions for just about any system. Go to a big box store of walmart and buy a hunter dounglas digital thermostat. Get the one that is powered by two AA batteries and your good to go. Download the instructions and wire i the new on in. Takes less than an hour if you follow the instructions.
