Atwood heat pump

we are enjoying our 32 DS but having trouble with the rear heat pump Atwood air command. It wonít turn on even with the thermostat set to 85. The AC seems to still work, Fan, etc. The living room AC and heat pump work fine

I am only hooked up to a 15 amp house circuit but The only thing Iím turning on is the back heater

Any troubleshooting suggestions?

Try repeating the process with your generator on. That would eliminate a voltage drop as being lhe problem.

The furnace in my 32ds is only controlled from the front/living room controller. I thought that was normal.

I will try it with the generator on. Good idea.

My furnace is controlled with the front thermostat but the Atwood air-conditioners have heat pumps Ė Ė at least Iím hoping both of them do

Itís still mid 50s here so I think the heat pump should work. The front one was.

Thx

If you only have 15 amp service, I think your marginal on the power supply. If the battery charger or any other device is using 120v, I'm not sure if it'll start. Connect it back to generator for a moment and see if it'll run on the generator. And it does take a min or two for the fan to kick on too.

My 2017 30DS only the front unit has the heat pump. You can climb onto the roof and look at the emblems for that info.

Thanks for the replies. Moving to 50 amp circuit didnít help. Iíll climb up and check Atwood to see if it has the heat pump on the second.

Only my front unit has the heat pump. Look at your model numbers that will tell you if it has the heat pump.

What is the advantage in using the heat pump vs. the furnace?
