Heater Question

New Member. Hello all! So we purchased a 2009 Forest River Rockwood Premier 2317G about two weeks ago. Took it out that very day and had a great time. Of course, being newbies, we have a few issues. QUESTION: The heater on the camper comes on when we hook the camper to the car for towing. Before I closed it up the last time I turned the themostat all the way down. I did not realize that it would still come on when, in cold temps, when connected to the cars electric. Would should I do to stop this as I see no reason for the interior of the folded down camper to be heating up while we are towing it. Further, it seems a waste of propane and dangerous. Please help. Thanks.

Turn off your propane? If you are using your refrigerator, you may have a 3-way that can run off of your 12 volt supplied by your vehicle. Your trailer is a pop-up? Our pop-up had another switch on the thermostat to totally shut it off. Check to see if you have one. Ours was on the bottom of the thermostat.

Our pop-up was a Rockwood Premier 1907 so could be similar to yours.

Make sure there is no on/off position with your thermostat. On some thermostats you have go beyond the lowest setting, and it "click" to off.

If there is no on/off position, pull the fuse for the furnace in your power center.

BTW, welcome to the forum !!!

That is the way ours works - had the same issue until we learned to push it down until we heard the click.
