Heater Question

Hello All
We picked up our 2016 297RSK fifth wheel in March. We have been out a few times this summer and all is good.
We are scheduled to take a trip in about 2 weeks. Thinking that it may be a bit chilly at the end of October in Virginia I thought it best to test the heater today just to be safe.
What I found was that when the thermostat is set to heat the furnace seems to turn on correctly. However the floor vents do not seem to be moving much air. Also when the heat is on the ceiling vent (That I thought was for the ac / fan unit) seem to turn on and are blowing air.
Is this right???

I appreciate any help.
Thanks.
Michael

Check the fan setting on the thermostat....it needs to be set to "auto"....not "hi" or "low".

I figured I was making a simple mistake.
Tested all looks good.
Thanks again

No mistake on your part, just one of many things the dealers should cover during the PDI but do not.

Glad you got it working.
