I tried to reply to the PM you sent me but I am not sure that the reply sent. SO, I am posting here. :-) Malcolm (MCT) said that he wouldn't change anything on the install. It was pretty much straight forward. Here is the picture
of the remote display mounted inside the fuse box cabinet. We used Command Strips Velcro (the picture type). Hope this helps! Feel free to contact us with more questions!

Thanks Valerie, any thoughts about swapping the AC/Furnace thermostat? Ours does not hold temp very well.

Wasn't sure if I'd like the new colors, both look great :)

Alan, sorry that I missed this message from you. We have not had a huge problem with the thermostat but I do know that Malcolm (MCT) has looked at other thermostats.

We replaced our thermostat, does much better at holding the temp with the furnace. Haven't got to try with the AC yet. We bought this one from Lowes:


You do lose the low speed on the AC, unless you do an additional mod.

This is link to installing a Hunter Thermostat. (//heartlandowners.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=Thermostat) It's not that hard and if your a little handy you can add a switch to the thermostat to control fan high or low speeds. Works a lot better than original.

I thought the 2013 BC had a digital thermostat now.

Ours has a digital thermostat. I haven't noticed that ours doesn't hold temperatures well. It seems to give a pretty good swing to keep the A/C or furnace from cycling on and off really often.

The other thermostat I was looking at was that fancy wi-fi Nest one. Not sure if it would work or not. I wanted to try it more from a nerdy perspective than to fix any shortcoming with the supplied thermostat.

Nerd alert, I'm with you on that one. I'd like to see if there is a way to move the thermostat to the living area, we like a cold bedroom for sleeping but don't want to hit the kitchen in a thin robe. Same for the AC, cooler in the bedroom and let the ceiling fan keep the cool air moving in that area.
