Need help replacing old thermostat with digital one

I have an old Fedders thermostat and want to replace it with a digital one. The furnace is an electric Fedders model cue025aaa. The wires at the furnace are:
Red=V
Blue=F
Orange=C
White=H
Yellow=Y.
The new thermostat (Hunter 42995) has G, W, Y, Rh, Rc. Can someone please advise me as to what wires go where?
Thank you

Post the make and model of the existing stat.

Post a picture of the old stat wiring or list all terminals (including unused terminals) on the old stat.

Your old thermostat has 2 stages of heat. Your new stat only has one.
I recommend getting a multistage Honeywell thermostat.

I'd suggest getting a Honeywell t-stat vs the Hunter.. HOneywell will be a far better control thatn Hunter... Hunter are best for fans, not t-stat.

Get either the RTH6350D, RTH6450D, or the RTH7500.
