Boy that sure looks familiar...

sundancer330, you know that thermostat is not only used with a-frames, nor with only the Cool-Cat a/c heat pump?

I'm a new owner of a 2015 194HW, and can verify that the 'stat, when put into fan only mode, will allow you to switch between Hi, Lo and Au(to).

I don't know what those settings do in relation to the furnace, as I have not tried starting the furnace. I have run the Cool Cat on both heat and cool modes, and it works fine.

Apparently, it's a person who owns/operates/knows about an A-Frame camper.

That TS will not allow furnace fan control (don't know if any rv TS will) but will allow AC and FAN mode control. Typically the furnace is a stand alone and its fan controls the sail switch for combustion to begin. The TS furnace select interconnect does go through the AC and that is why the AC fan will also run if the TS FAN mode is not set to AU. Heat strip/heat pump modes same as AC.

The furnace is completely separate
From the coolcat. The coolcat in heat or AC has three settings : low, high and auto. When running the coolcat I prefer to use either high or low fan settings vs Auto, because I canít sleep when something is constantly turning on and off, so I hardly ever use auto. The furnace fan has one speed ,on or off . Hope this helps, I have the exact year and model you have, it seems to me that the 194hw is fairly uncommon, my wife loves the shower/cassette, no more finding shoes and a flashlight to go the restroom in the middle of the nightí

If you don't want the fan blowing cool air (not AC air) while the furnace is operating, you must be in the "Auto" mode. Using the +/- to change settings and set your temp.

Do a search in the A-Frame forum, you'll see several threads on this very question. Aside from the furnace causing alarms the first time it is used, this seems to be part of new owner hazing. Hahah

The lp furnace is indeed

a completely separate unit from the Coolcat.

However, and just to be aware of, the two thermostat wires for the
lp furnace come from the Coolcat unit.

So, there is some interaction for thermostat control purposes.

My Cool at comes on prior to the furnace kicking on with its own fan. There is no fan control for either. It is constant low blow. I have a 2017 T21TBHW.
