heat and air conditioner

My thermostat is broken inside camper,are they like a thermostat inside a house? Old one had on/off/auto---heat //cool----a piece to slide to wanted temp. I assume they are the same but would like to hear it from an experienced camper here at IRV2 before I do anything.

There are a few differences in SOME cases. For one thing many house units of old used a mercury bulb that rocked on a spring,,, not usable in an RV. others did it differently.

HUNTER makes some that work well or so I'm told, but alas, I don';t know the models.

NOT all home units work well with 12 volt DC..

Indeed, there are a few Hunter's that will work fine, I recall seeing several mentions of it here or on the 'm/h general' board, a search should turn them up.
Ted 'n' Laurie, plus Jackson (aka Deputy Dog, the Parson Russell Terrier 'fur kid') and, Rylie (who crossed the Rainbow Bridge June 14, 2012).
