2020 Riverstone Legacy 38RE A/C & Heat Question

Just picked it up 2 months ago and I could not figure out why the bedroom which is zone 2 worked great and zones 1 & 3 Kitchen & Living room did not Cool off at all until now, I turned the furnace on this weekend which goes to zone 1 and it would not turn off on its own and ran me out of the camper it got so hot.I had to turn the system off at the thermostat. I checked the inside temp from the thermostat and it reads 32 degrees at all times in zone 1 & 3 so that is why the A/C and heat does not work properly and I can not find the temp sensor on the wall in the kitchen or the living room. I have one in the bedroom but none out in the coach. Does anyone know where it is located in the kitchen or living room? Pretty bad to pay 100k for a coach and them to forget that important part.It Has 3 A/c Units,so has 3 zones.Thanks
Bob

Not sure, but isn't the thermostat itself the temperature sensor?

Welcome to the party. I bought a Riverstone 39RKFB last February and posted about the same problem. Zone 1 and 3 use the Thermostat Control on the wall for their Inside temperature readings. The tech changed out the thermostat control. That did not help. He then put Zone 3 on a remote sensor and laid it on the roof. It overruled the 32 degree reading and started using that. While playing with the zone 3 a/c, he took the remote sensor off again and put his bare arm on the unit and it started working correctly. Removed his arm, it went back to 32 degrees as an internal temp. Long story short, we figured it is some sort of noise on the ground. At that time, we ran out of time to be in Florida and went back north for the Spring. Am back down now with the RV and will try putting the remote sensor back on and snaking it down through the a/c unit return duct which was recommended to me by an HVAC guy here at the campground. If that works well, Iíll do it with Zone 1.

Thank you for the info. Let me know if their idea works and how they did it.It don't make sense to me that the thermostat is the sensor and is in the hallway by the bathroom and not out in the living area but I don't build them.

If your having an issue with your two zones reading 32, check and see if your inverter is on. Mine has done this with the inverter on. Once I turn it off it works fine. I am assuming there is a grounding issue and I will be investigating. Might not be the issue but worth checking.

Hey guys, new to the party. What "thermostat" are you referring to? I remember when we looked at the 2018 models, there was a thermostat on the wall in the hallway, next to the bathroom. In the 2020 that thermostat is gone, apparently replaced by the InControl system. Do you have a separate thermostat in your unit? If so, where?

Yes, referring to the thermostat in the hall by the door.
