getting colder out

We used the furnace this weekend on our 128s ,everything worked well , but the fan from the heat pump came on blowing cold air around . We then went to the heat pump since the temp didn't get below 40 degrees , well it also worked well for heating but : the fan never shut off ! Thank goodness we were on shore power ! this spring everything worked good and cycled on and off , but now it seems to be amiss ? Has anybody run into this issue or have any suggestions ? thanks , Brett

Is the fan set to auto on the thermostat? We had the same thing happen until we set the fan to auto.

Fan can be set at auto, lo or hi. Set it at auto and it will only run when you want it to.

There is also a "variable range" of temperature

that is maintained by the heater's thermostat.

For example, if you set the temp at 72, the temp at which the heater turns on will be a couple of degrees less than 72, and the temp at which the heater turns off will be a couple of degrees higher than 72.

I like to have the fan running all the time, as I think the moving air makes the thermostat maintain a more even swing range of temp.

The entry door has a built-in ventilation draft, and the plastic snap hinge needs to be closed to stop that draft. That complicates things a bit.

With this all in mind, you can test and find out what works better for you.

Happy camping!

If your thermostat is an analog one, you may want to replace it with a digital. It will keeps temps a lot closer to the setting; smaller temperature swings.
