A/C Fan Operation

I have a 2012 3011DS. Whenever I run the A/C, it never seems to cycle off once the desired temperature is reached. The fan keeps running and running. Is this normal?

There is a manual fan setting for both low and high fan and also an auto setting. Check to make sure it is on auto. If it is then you may have a relay sticking.

Not normal assuming it is, in fact, set to auto and gets to set temp.

On my thermostat I have to keep pushing the button in order to select what I'm going to use like the A/C or heater. So whatever the fan is set to runs concurrently with the A/C then even if it's the A/C that I've selected?

Nothing wrong with running the AC fan continually...I do that whenever the AC is running to help move the air around and balance the temperature in the camper.

If you have Dometic Single zone thermostat, you need to put on auto. Here is manual page 10 and 11.....

Thanks everyone for the ideas & manual! My RV was missing a lot of the owner's manuals when we took delivery and I guess this was one if the missing ones. I wish I would've thought to post this much sooner.

I run mine on low all the time as well. I don't like to hear it stop and start constantly.
