Furnace

Hello everyone! Can anyone tell me why I have the dual thermostats in my thunderbolt but only one either works the furnace or I may only have one furnace?

Do you have two AC units? The one in the bedroom does not control the heater at all. At least that's how our unit is.

Yes I have the dual ac and the each thermostat has fan-cool- and furnace options on them but only the one in the living area works the furnace? When I try the one in the bedroom on furnace option it doesn't work. So I'm guessing it's one furnace for the whole camper?

You are correct. The thermostat in the bedroom is only for the A/C in the bedroom.

Lower production costs to install the same thermostat rather than have two different to keep stocked and control in production.

Would my hot water heater be just has or can it be both electric and gas? If so I can't seem to find out how to use it on electric.

Ralph, the switch for electric is right on the HW heater which is accessed by removing the outside access panel. I added an interior switch for mine and just leave the outside switch in the on position.

I took the panel off and the switch was on but it still seems to be running off gas. Any ideas?
