    Colman Mach AC/ AirXcel Thermostat - Does it link to Compass Connect App?

    So while I am waiting for my 2021 Imagine 2250RK to arrive, I have been researching this forum like crazy trying to learn as much as I can from all of you wonderful folks. While looking thru the "Parts Lookup" over on the GD webpage, it lists the AirXcel thermostat in 4 variations. 2 in black and 2 in white (see pic below). One of each with Bluetooth capability and one without. So my question is, those of you with the Coleman Mach AC's and AirXcel thermostats, and if your unit also has the Compass Connect interface, do you have the Bluetooth model of the thermostat and can you control your AC and heat from your mobile device thru the Compass Connect app?

    If the thermostat is the non-bluetooth model, has anyone converted to the bluetooth model and will it communicate with the Compass Connect app?

    was told that the Furrion units were only used for a limited period of time due to availability of the Coleman units but that they are now back to the Coleman AC units. I guess I will know soon enough as my unit is enroute to the dealership.

    I just wish I had a thermostat. My ac's and heat only work off the one control. No thermostat's. It's so slow by the time I get the heat to work it's already summer. One control is junk. It does work better if you reset it about once a week, but still slower the switches and thermostat.

    When did you purchase it? Or I guess to be more accurate, when was your unit built? I was told that units shipping after mid-December could still have a Furrion, but units shipping in February should all have the Coleman Mach A/C units in them now. Mine was handed over to the transport company on 2/26. So I hope I have the Coleman unit in ours when it arrives.

    Is there not a way to add a wall mounted one as well?

    EDIT: I just watched a video of a Coleman Mach unit that was upgraded to the Bluetooth only controls and it did mention that it could connect to up to 4 different smart devices. So I wonder if you would have better luck installing the "RV Climate" app from AirXcel and controlling your unit from your smart phone or tablet instead of thru One Control...just a thought.
