Dometic thermostat not showing Bluetooth icon


Recommended Posts

Less than 2 weeks since we took delivery of our 2021 Elite II Hull # 802, and I 've got a lot to learn. Today I wanted to Bluetooth pair the thermostat with the Dometic Climate control app, as shown in the Oliver Standard Features manual but the Bluetooth icon is not showing on the thermostat. The thermostat is otherwise functioning properly. Any ideas on this?

I don't know about the 2021, but I don't believe the dometic thermostat in the 2020 is bluetooth capable since on my thermostat there is no bluetooth icon at the bottom of the thermostat. Dometic makes one that is bluetooth capable like in the manual, but it shows a bluetooth icon on the thermostat as in the drawing you reference above. The thermostat in mine has just a plain white face at the bottom of the thermostat.

There was no Bluetooth thermostat on our hull 803 either. Seems kind of a miss on an $80k trailer.

No Bluetooth thermostat on hull 792 either, despite the manual describing one. At delivery, Hannah mentioned that they always upgrade to something better if making a switch, but perhaps in this case…. Service did suggest that Bluetooth and compatible thermostats are available from other sources.

No offense intended,  but I'm perfectly happy with my analog 2008 thermostat.

I really don't need or want bluetooth.  I just want a thermostat that works .

I hope mine lasts another 14 years...

First world problem, but while my initial thought was I don't need Bluetooth for AC either, after living with the DB level and recycling time of the 2020 Dometic I'd be happy to be able turn it on or off, or change temp, from bed as needed vs having to get up multiple times and try and read the LCD screen. 😉

We're on our first post-delivery camping trip to northern Minnesota.  The weather has been changing daily from high-80s to low 50s.  It would be dandy, like Ralph said, to have the ability to adjust the thermo from bed!

I just heard from Jason two days ago. "The standard thermostat does not have Bluetooth connectivity but Dometic does offer that feature. "

I wish my salesman had told me that nine months ago.

I installed a micro air thermostat in my Ollie. It has both Bluetooth and WiFi. We monitor the temps in the trailer for the dogs from anywhere we have signal and can turn it on or off when we are away from the trailer. The screen is in color and is always easy to read. I highly recommend it over the domestic. It’s one of our favorite upgrades.

You can get the upgrade to bluetooth.

I had same question on my Elite I. I was told that the Elite II came with the bluetooth, but the Elite I did not.

No BT thermostat in our 2021 Elite II, hull 699.

Don't get me wrong . . . . I'm no technophobe . . . . I embrace technology.  But I'm glad to have one less app on my phone and one less tech gadget to manage.  

As for convenience in adjusting temp from bed, I turn my phone off at night, to give it a rest and chance to recharge.  Usually I'm snuggled in my down sleeping bag, so temp doesn't matter.  You can set the thermostat to come on at a certain temperature . . . . . don't think you can at a certain time.

On another note, I can't believe we just picked up our #699 in December and we are now talking about hull# in the 800's . . . . . Wow!!

Since one of us can actually reach our analog thermostat from bed, in our elite 2008, I guess I'm less understanding.

With the trailer orders that they have received but have yet to build and deliver, they are well into 1000’s.

For me, it's not so much that the thermostat is not Bluetooth enabled, it's the fact that the Standard features Owners Manual for the 2021 Elite II shows the Bluetooth enabled thermostat as standard, which leads me to believe it must have been at one time. This could have been mentioned, along with an explanation. Was this mentioned to anyone who picked up a new Elite II this year?

Jeff, the sales info and actual documentation are not 100% accurate. Nor would I expect them to be. But you can complain to Oliver Sales, tell them to correct the error and ask if they will send you one as an apology or at least sell you one at cost... then sell your old one online.

There are a couple of errors in their LE2 pages that continue to bug me, especially the claim that it is built for off-road. That is highly deceptive, though the term is very common sales hyperbole with other RV manufacturer’s packages that are mostly cosmetic.

Though I can’t imagine them saying “you must tow it down a potholed road at no more than 5 mph to keep from beating the cr@p out of the frame and your gear.” 

BTW Hull 218 came with a mechanical “furnace only” stat, because it has a non-Dometic AC and they could not figure out how to make a digital one work. I replaced it with a $22 battery powered non-programmable furnace- only one …. Cheap Stat …. when that one died when the points burned up. It is much more satisfactory than the old one, it doesn’t have a 4 degree dead band. I would have a hard time paying $250 for a smart one😬. But if it came standard, I might appreciate it…. As Ralph commented, a First World problem! We do seem to expect a lot from a camper. Good luck. I personally would not just let this stat issue drop.
