Quick Thermostat Question

Replacing the Thermostat on my 84 Airstream, heat only, suburban NT 30 S heater - anyone have a clue what I should set the "heat anticipator" on the thermostat to?

In general you should set it at 1 amp or so or whatever the max is. If you find that you have a problem with excessively long heating cycles you can adjust it down until the problem clears up. The suburban logic board doesn't use much current, but the RV environment is different enough from the home environment that the heat anticipator may not be of much use.
To learn to see below the surface, you must adjust your altitude
