Heater / furnace 350xl

Why would the AC units come when I run the furnace? Did not do this yesterday.

Ours started doing the same thing (just the front unit) the last time our dealer worked on the front heat strip.

We were in the mountains early last spring so I had to flip the front AC breaker.

We’re waiting till it cools of a little more, then maybe they’ll be able to fix both.
3rd attempt for the heat strip, but they’re probably hard to work on when it’s over a hundred*.

So what is causing the AC to go on when the heartier is on and selected?

On the thermostat the fan has to be set on automatic or the AC fan will come on.

Yes if the fan needs to be set to AUTO.

Glad to help. Then it makes it easier to ask for help when I need it. And I have been helped a number of times on this forum.

Does GT use crappy thermostats? I can't seem to keep the furnace on and regulated unless the thermostat is set to 71. On way home from Nashville it got down to 31 overnight and woke up to a freezing coach. At 60 the furnace kicked on then shut off after 20 seconds. Could not get it to fire back up so had to start the engine and run the dash heat (now that's efficient). Same thing happened just this past weekend, but this time it would operate at 71 and above.

Are you sure you don't have a carbon monoxide leak and the detector is shutting off the gas? When you say it "fires up" is that the ignition or the fan that is starting? You should hear the fan start first and then the gas should light a little later. Also, only the front thermostat (not the rear) controls the furnace in the 350. If you're adjusting the rear thermostat you'll get nowhere.
