thermostat for wall heater on 1959 1960 Traveler

Would anyone be able to send me a diagram for the wiring connections for the wall thermostat for the wall heater? The heater is a Glenair and the thermostat is by General Controls. It's a T80 thermostat...
Please advise!
Cindy

What kind of diagram are you looking for - assuming you have the value that uses a thermostat, there are two screws that you attach the thermostat wire to.

And I thought I was the only one that had a Traveler!
I'm not to that stage yet on the restoration of mine and wish I could help but I'm shure somebody in the forums family will come through for you.

Hi Ken,
I replaced the thermostat wire. It has a red and a white wire. I see where they attach on the back of the thermostat... do I need to use little crimp-on connectors?
Does it matter which color wire goes on each terminal? and, do the colors need to be consistent where they attach to the heater down at the bottom on the thermostat terminals?

Red & white wire - sounds like "Bell Wire", which is solid wire. Crimp-on connectors are not used with solid wire; Just make a loop in the end of each wire, and attach it to the screws.

In this case, it does not matter which color wire goes to which screw, and there is no need to match the wiring at both the heater & thermostat.

Tom is correct - a thermostat is basically and on & off switch, so it makes no difference which color goes to which terminal. However, on my heater the wires were attached to those u shaped crimp on blades which were then attached to the screws on the heater - but, I agree with Tom, you don't need them.

Guess I'm a little surprised you have a thermostatically controlled heater in your Traveler - that was not standard - it would have been an upgrade option - which is a real good thing.

Hi Ken,
Actually, there are many extras on this trailer...so far so good.
New redone bedframe is in, cabinet doors refinished, re-hinged and back on... Just waiting for the new water tank to arrive so that we can work on the booth up front.
Thanks for your help.
Cindy
