Have a question concerning our furnace. We were camping and it got down to 40 so turned furnace on and it ran fine with hot air coming from furnace vents, but the air conditioner in the ceiling was also running with air going in (cold air return maybe) but also cool to warm air coming out. Is that normal.

Common occurrence with the digital thermostat. Switch the setting to Fan, switch the fan to Auto, then turn the furnace back on. Shouldn't have an issue with the AC anymore.

I found that if you run the fan on low it helps to circulate the warm air.

Wow, since not privy to conversation you had with your dealer, the whole story there is not known....but in our 26 ft flagstaff the three vents work great so far 3 yrs, 10k miles. Folks say the biggest problem is when boon docking is it drains battery. If hooked to 110 there should be no problem with battery drain. Not sure if a bad battery would affect air flow......good luck with getting the problem corrected...FR has been great in handling any issue we have ever had in our unit. I will always own one of their products just for that reason......they have always been excellent for us no matter where we were in our travels.

I was using my RV as a Christmas package wrapping room with the heat on and the A/C was lowing air out. I have to give this a try to see if it fixes the problem.

Smile Rock wood 8289 furnace

We've given up on the furnace because it uses to much log.
The logs we use are free.

Is that REALLY a woodburning stove with a chimney through the roof of your RV ??

Yes and it's lovely and warm even when it's -5○c outside.
The post should have read, it uses to much LPG.

My unit was not blowing heat. Heat was only coming out under sink and drawers. The heater end was not installed.
