Greetings, I have a Quad cb1200 insert that has the "basic" wall thermostat that came with the model. I like the wall thermostat, especially where its located, but would like to have the ability to have the stove lit and warming the house by the time we get up. I did a search for any old threads discussing this topic, but couldn't find anything specific to my model. I have looked in the manual, but all I can find is "The appliance is designed to run on a 12 volt AC thermostat". I don't want anything fancy, just the ability to program an early start time. The wiring has only 2 wires (red and white) but NO labels, so I assume the red goes to R and the white to the W (on the new thermostat). I saw a backlit Honeywell that does what I want, and its reasonable. Quad makes a programable one for 149.00 (per my dealer) - not going to happen. My dealer wasn't very helpful with the wiring suggestions or if I can use the honeywell, so any suggestions, personal experiences, etc would be appreciated.
