I believe most home systems run the fan @ a higher speed when cooling than when heating !!!

I didn't even know the fan had an auto setting. My old camper it was just dials. The one in my living room has an actual wall thermostat. I'll have to check it this weekend to find the auto setting so that the fan will shut off.

Correct. Cold air is harder to move than warm dry air.

My A/C Won't Cycle On/Off Either

I had the same problem with my a/c the last 2 trips I went on. The a/c simply will not turn off, regardless of where the thermostat is set, regardless of whether the controls are set on AC or fan or hi or low or anything else. My coach is going back to the dealer next week for yet another issue so the a/c can be checked at that time. My friend, who is much more knowledgeable on RV stuff, especially a/c, could not figure out how to make my a/c turn off. It was 60 outside in the morning and my a/c was still pumping out freezing cold air full blast because it never shut off all night. I had to turn it off manually and open the door on the coach to let in the "warm" air. Ridiculous. I have a new 2015 Rockwood 2608WS and have had problem after problem with it. I purchased it new from a dealer in March of this year. While it is a 2015 model year, it did not sell last year so was discounted this year. I am starting to wonder if it is a lemon I have had so many problems with it...

I am thinking it could only be a bad thermostat,,, or something in the thermostat wiring ??? I would after checking the wiring,,, would probably go buy a good house thermostat !!!

Just an update for my post on this thread.

I did check out my thermostat and sure enough there was an AUTO setting. I showed my wife how to use and now it works perfectly. Thanks for this thread and the help!
