Who knows..maybe it was a "CYA" because they wired them that way not knowing??? I'm going to have to test one or two.

Somewhat related to this topic, but I not sure it warrants a thread:

Is there anyway to wire the atwood fan separately from the compressor? Would love to run the fan of batteries but I know the compressor is a no-no

For the furnace, some people think so. They say it helps distribute the air better so fewer hot/cold spots.

The heat will not come on or nothing comes on, no fan or anything?

Nada. See post by ACTFEL re furnace. That's us. Here's my husbands post

As it is getting cooler and we are heading to Maine wanted to verify that the heat was working in our 17/Isata 5. Put the AC units in heat pump mode both front and rear worked fine. Tried to get the furnace to turn on but nothing happens when I hit the furnace button. Switch settings on the controller are set to: Heat, Fan Auto, Furnace on. There is no response, no circulating fans running.

Tried with both front and rear controls.

Am I missing something? The LP is on both stove and HW heater work.

Where is the fuse panel on the Isata 5 DS? And is there a propane shut off valve for the furnace somewhere? This info is not in our info box, and I cannot access the owners manual online for some reason. Grrr

I think that panel is located below the oven, behind a door? Should be a brown panel with all the fuses show. Its a multiplex system, so it should actually tell you if a fuse is blown on the digital display.

There or bed base, bedroom cabinet.

Great. Thanks again Brian. How about the furnace? Any ideas? Should we call the dealer?
