TGR, what year and model Wildcat do you have? You mentioned "cold air returnS
" as in more than one return. Where are these returns? I have 4 air returns in the ceiling of my Wildcat which drawn air from the cabin when the air conditioner blower is operating. I have a single
air return for the furnace although, as has been said, the furnace sucks input air from all available cracks! I will say there is not much of a crack between my basement storage and the catacombs where my furnace hides. I doubt if much air is drawn from my basement.
Regarding the tank heaters: I might have missed reading it, but does your tank heater switch include a light (as mine does) to indicate when it is ON? If so, is the light burning? If not, you may have a blown fuse.
Just tryin' to help.
