Problem with thermostat

We are on our first shake down trip with the new 295RL.

We LOVE our trailer. There is so much more room than our Surveyor 265 TT. It's total luxury.

I am having trouble getting the thermostat to turn on the heater in the morning. I wake up the thermostat, touch the mode button, it goes from AUTO to FURN, I use the arrow button to adjust the temperature from 68 to 70 and then both the A/C and furnace turn on together. There is no heat from the furnace and the A/C is not very cold.

I talked with the service dept at my dealer twice today, and he is stumped. I tried calling Dometic, but the call waiting time was rediculous.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Jon

If you go to the fan setting on the t-stat put the speed to auto I was having the same thing happen to me and that seemed to solve it for now

Problem with thermostat

We are on our fist shake down trip with our new 295RL. We LOVE our new fifth wheel. There is so much more room than our Surveyor 265 TT. This is pure luxury.

When I touch a button to wake up the thermostat, that works fine, I then touch MODE and it changes from AUTO to FURN. I touch the up arrow from 68 to 70, then the furnace and A/C comes on together.

I called my dealers service dept. twice today, he walked me through the same process, and the same end result. He is stumped.

I tried to call Dometic, but the waiting list was so long, I hung up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Jon

Here's a link to the operating instructions for a single zone thermostat from the library, have you looked through it?

thats the opposite of mine, if I put it on auto and the a/c is on and the temp drops below what the furnace was set at than they both run.

Thank you for merging my two posts. For some reason, the first one would not load. I guess it did load.

I have the two zone thermostat.

I have read through the manual several times, but it really is not very well written.

Any more suggestions?

Thanks.

Jon

I believe I read in another post that they ran the AC up to a higher temperture so the Heater and AC did not conflict. You might try putting AC at least 10 degrees above the Heater setting. See if that works then you can find tune it. Don't know for sure if it will work but mght be worth a try.
