I will tell you that both the furnace and the overhead heatpump are very noisy when trying to sleep, whereas two inexpensive 1500-watt ceramic heaters do the job of the others and are almost silent - assuming you have shore-power.

Also, turning on the furnace for whatever reason also turns on the overhead heatpump FAN. Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the fan when running the furnace ? It is probably wired that way to move the air around more effectively, but for us the noise drowns out the benefit of improved air movement !
I have a 24R as well. To reduce the fan noise, adjust the grate openings at the ceiling unit in the dining area. You can also close the sliding door to quite it more.

Others have answered the fan question.

This subject has been raised many times, you're right, the correct answer is auto it will skip the extra circulation. I've been in coaches where the operating a/c unit was barely audible when on. I didn't ask the make but I will. I thought it was a basement unit but was really roof units.
