I'm not going to go with the electronic (Comfort Control Center 5-button) after having my Penguin go Tango Uniform at a Ma & Pa Campground in Montana last summer.
I'm going back to simple local controls on the ceiling ADB.
A lot easier to trouble shoot switches and capacitors in the field. Trying to debug circuit boards and electronic thermostats is like trying to smell the color 5.
I spent the money on a Power Surge.

Air Conditioner Replacement

Actually, they don't make the 5-button any longer. It's now a 12 button called the CCC-II.

And BTW, the color 5 smells just like chicken......... :-))

I would guess, as long as the manual control works the same as a thermostat, it's just basically mounted on the ceiling ADB- rather than a wall--correct? The manual has a "thermostat" to turn off the AC when interior space hits desired temp? Or no..it's completely manual..needing human fingers to shut it off when they are cold enough?

Yes, the manual controls on the ceiling plenum include a thermostat to maintain the temp you set it at. On every a/c unit I've ever seen, the plenum controls consist of a on/off/fan speed control and a thermostat. Typically no temperature numbers on the thermostat, so you play with it until you find the position that maintains the temp you want, and then never touch it again.

Your current wall a/c thermostat may be electronic. Impossible to tell without a picture or opening it up to see if there's a circuit board inside. But, no matter really. It will not work with the Penguin a/c. If you want a wall thermostat for the penguin, you'll need to buy their CCC. And make sure the a/c unit is the correct model to work with the CCC.

The number 10 smells like bacon...

Hmmm...so there is no confusion with my kids, since there are no numbers on the thermostat, I could write some words instead- maybe "1" equals "cold turkey" and "10" equals " CRISPY BACON"?

Or a big arrow with a note that says "Dad's comfort zone. Change at your own risk."
