Thanks for the refresher on Thermistors and you are correct, the location of the thermistor on the cooling fin determines the inside temperature,regardless of whether it is running on AC or Propane, since there is only one.
All things being equal the temperature, stabilized, should be identical whether on AC or propane heat. The OP says they are not. The only variable here is the efficiency of the ammonia bulb heat. My point is that something is effecting the transfer of thermal energy from the gas flame to the bulb. A misaligned flame, bug nest clogged flue (the AC does not use the flue), bad mixture (yellow flame), etc.
Basically, CAN happen ...
