Dometic 4 Button Thermostat

My 4 button comfort control thermostat stopped working and I thought I’d see if anyone has a working thermostat lying around they’d be interested in selling before I do the upgrade to the 5 button.
The 5 button kit with control box is the only option since they no longer make the 4 button. I’ve seen a couple 4 button tstats on eBay “refurbished” for ~$160. I’d rather just buy new if I’m going to spend that much.

Depends on what the thermostat is not doing? Most of the time the buttons stop working but you can repair yourself. I've attached the repair info. The buttons can carefully be taken apart and since the buttons only use 1/2 of the foil inside, you can turn the thin foil around and re-use the foil. You need a small flat tip screwdriver (like a jewelers) and make sure you don't lose the spring inside. Don't be afraid to try the repair if it is the buttons. I have some extra switches, PM me if you're interested.

If it is something else not working, send it to one of the names above.
