Newbie question re furnace/AC

First time out in my 2013 Solera, to find out what I don't know. I'm in Oregon and it's still cold here. Trying to avoid a visit to the RV repair guys...

When I turn the thermostat on, push the button to get it to "furnace," turn the temp up to 65, the very loud AC blower comes on and cold air blows from the ceiling vents. Brrrr! Eventually, the heat comes on and blows nicely from the vents near the floor....but the cold air is still blowing loudly from the ceiling. It seems like the heater doesn't work separately from the AC. Is that possible? Is there something I should be doing that I'm not? I know this is likely a dumb question...but I have looked thru all the posts here and can't find anyone else addressing this. Ideas? Or do I need the repair guy??

Do you have your thermostat set to "auto" or "on" ?

The thermostat has three buttons...fan, cool and furnace. A button on the bottom says" on/off mode" and is the first thing I push...then "furnace" and the cold AC comes on first....and stays on, even after the heat comes on. Ideas?
