got a mobil home with a in the wall furnace and outside ac unit,all the buttons are on the furance,the cool,auto,on,heat etc.The thermostat just controls the temp, so I want a digital t stat to replace the old spring loaded one that come with the Mobil home,it will be more accurate and easy to set. tell me which one would be a good choice at lowes to buy and how to connect the two wires up to the stat please,i just want a non programable one will be fine. :?: I checked and it just has the two wires on the stat.

If you have 2 wires now any 2 wire should work. I think the colors are labeled on the back of the thermostat.

What if the colors aren't labeled on the back? How can you tell which wire is which?

everything you want to know will be there
