Running the AC with fan?

Georgetown 357......When running the AC should we have the fan mode set on auto, hi or low. I remember the salesman mentioning this but forgot what he said to do.

Thanks in advance!

It should be just like the AC in your house. It's your preference how you like to run it. When camping we have the front AC set on auto and the bedroom AC set on low fan. We like the noise the fan makes. Helps us sleep better.

Set it on auto if you want fans to shut off if compressor shuts off.

Set to on if you want fans to run regardless if compressor is on or off.

Hi fan or low fan would be your preference of how much air flow you'd want.

Typically the fan is set to auto (always auto for funace selected). Additional comment; the fan will run on high till temp gets to within about 4 deg of the thermostat selected temp then it will automatically revert to low. it will resume high fan as needed.

If you leave your fan set in the on mode it will help prevent condensation from forming and dripping from the vent when the weather is humid

Maybe that was what he was talking about.

Thanks again for everybody's help.

We run the fan when we run the furnace. We find it helps keep a more even temperature in the RV and reduces condensation in cooler weather.
