The heater kicked in last night for the first time in our new Lacrosse. We awoke with the smoke detector going off. We also smelled a burning smell.

Our heat at home does that the first time we usr it each year.

Is this the norm for TT also? Anything I need to be concerned about?

Yeah they can do that when first used. It should clear up soon.
Congrats on your LaCrosse.
We had ours (LaCrosse 303RKS) for nearly 6 years and loved it. Few minor issues at first and it's been great ever since. Traded it in on a Crusader 315RST this past Friday.
We hope you enjoys yours as much as we did ours!

Yes, it's pretty typical, even when you start it up for the first time

Your dealer should have burnt the oils off before you took possession.

Or they should have informed you of it, during the PDI.
