RM 2852 vs 2862?

Besides the price, what is the difference between a 2852 and a 2862? The only difference I can spot is that the 2862 has an adjustable temp setting.

I asked myself the same thing! The Dometic catalog is really not a good reference tool. and that's kinda really not good either. I took the two descriptions from the catalog and reorganized the verbiage to get apples to apples. It appears to be the automatic verse adjustable climate settings. Not sure why the auto is more costly, as I prefer to not rely on digital controls, but in the end they both are compared to the OEM from '73 I'm replacing so 2862 it is for me.
