Furnace Question

We bought our new Surveyor 251rks in Januwary. We used t for about 10 days and put it in storage until last night. This morning when I turned on the furnace it lit fine and the floor vents started putting out hot air but the roof unit came on and the ceiling vents put out cold air for about 10 minuets until the floor vents heated the trailer enough to supply warn air to the roof intake. Is this normal? For about 10 min. It feels like the a/c is on. We are staying at the rogue river state park and it was pretty cool this morning.

You must have a dometic digital thermostat, so make sure you put it on "auto" instead of hi/lo fan.....

It's amazing how common this issue is. I had it too. The Ho/LO settings cause very unexpected results! Even if you read the manual as I did, but don't have it completely memorized yet. I have that part down now!
