Thermostat Upgrade

My 2022 ORV 22FQS Titanium came with a Coleman-Mach analog thermostat.
The minimum temperature set for heat is 55 degrees. I would like to get a digital thermostat that I could set just above freezing so that in case of a cold snap I could have the heat turn on to protect my piping. Any recommendations?

Our 22FQS came with the same analog thermostat.

We upgraded to the digital version of the same thermostat. The heater now turns on 1 degree below set point and turns off 1 degree above point.

I did the same upgrade to our '19 23DBS when we first got it. The unit Passin Thru2 linked to is a wire for wire swap and fits in the same wall mounting holes as the analog model. Performance is much better than the analog and is a very worthwhile upgrade.

I also had the same analog thermostat that came with my '22 FQS Titanium. Per the ORV brochure, should of had a digital thermostat. Had my dealer contact ORV about the change, No luck, I got what I got due to supply issues.

I also upgraded to what I thought should of been installed by ORV Titanium model, Coleman Mach Digital AC HC Black 8330-3862.

When I removed the analog unit, I really didn't care for the mounting method used, 2 screws through the thin veneer. So I glued some additional wood behind the veneer and drilled starter holes in the same location to mount the new thermostat. No issues on the wiring, but one wire was of a different color.

OT a little but the new 2020 ORV 22FQS Mountain series now come with flush windows not Hehr sliders. Supply chain issue per apache sales guy. Nice upgrade IMO.

I suppose it may depend on supply at the time as to which ones are affected.

I understand the supply chain factors going on. I also would of appreciated an upgrade or change out of the same level of item, but surely didn't appreciate the down grade of the item I was faced with.

We've been very happy with the Micro-Air EasyTouch thermostat. Easy upgrade. Several YouTube videos, including my installation ....
