2013 forest river Salem

Just bought this trailer from an individual I noticed the a/c blower never shuts off turned the furnace on last night at the lake and the warm air blew out of the floor while the overhead unit ran blowing cool air
Is this normal?

Yes, if you have a digital thermostat, this is a common occurrence. The fan has to be set to auto.

Hold on and I will edit this post with some links to help you.

There is a way. The instructions are in the link above and this one too. You will have to read thru the threads, as there are detailed posts explaining how to get to the auto function.

Posts#9 and 10 in the above link should fix you up.

You are welcome and also welcome aboard. Feel free to ask/any all questions.

This digital thermostat problem is fairly common, so don't feel alone.

Mark, not knowing your RV expertise, I usually always recommend a few links to those just beginning. You may or may not find these useful, but can peruse at your leisure.

Basic RV Electric:

Basic RV Electricity - RV Information (RV Maintenance)

RV Electric

Understanding the converter:

RV Converters and Amp Draw - RV Information (RV Maintenance)

and understanding a dual power source Suburban water heater (which your RV may or may not have)

Suburban's electric switch and much more
