Furnace question

We just got our TT out of indoor storage. I plugged it in for the first time since it was stored inside and the furnace blower came on. I turned the furnace thermostat all the way off and then it shut off. Is this normal? It did not do this when I had plugged it in when it was indoors but I assume the temps in the trailer were warmer when it was stored inside.

Most likely you moved the control from "AC" to "HEAT" instead of OFF when it was put away. I would not worry about it.

Your hypothesis is prob correct. If it was left on when you stored it and your battery was connected it likely ran battery down over winter and when you plugged it in it was cool enough inside to activate the thermostat. Of course, if you did not have a battery attached during winter the same could have happened. Your camper was stored at a warmer temp when you stored it. Good idea to turn off the system at the thermostat rather than using the temp setting only. Especially while storing or in transit. Also you should shut propane bottles off when storing or between trips, disconnect battery also.

No worries though, you've probably not damaged anything.
