Cool cat and Furnace run together

My wife went to change to furnace and touched the cool cat instead we think. Now when we turn the furnace on, both come on together now. We also changed it from F to /C but found out how to turn back to Fahrenheit. But how do we stop the cool cat from running at the same time short of pulling a fuse to cool cat when we want to run the furnace?
Also, Does anyone know if there is a fan inside the converter? I thought I heard it once but now haven't heard it. Maybe there isn't one.

On ours if I select fan on the electronic thermostat then change the mode from auto to low or high it causes the fan on the ac to come on when the heat is turned on.

To fix it, select fan on the thermostat and set it back to auto. Then turn the unit off. Then turn the heat back on and only the heat will come on.

Hope this helps

X2 on the "auto" setting as Simplewon stated above. This is a common situation and question with the digital thermostats in various RV's. It happens a lot.

Yes there is a cooling fan in the converter. It only runs as needed and at veriable speed in most models.
