i found as Mnwelsh that if the delta from the set temp to actual temp is too great the gas kicks on regardless of the setting.

Well temps close to 40 were certainly within the realm of possibility last night so I think you have explained my challenge. And when I was testing to try and get the system operational again I probably exceeded the 3-4 degree range just in an attempt to ensure it activated in a timely fashion.

This is new tech to me so I was not aware of the challenges posed by low temps. I took my ceramic heater off this rig because I had access to the heat pump. Well lessons learned I picked up a spare heater at WallyMart today. I figure worst case scenario I can keep the spare inside our always chilly bathroom. Thanks for all your advise.

Probably a little late, but just confirming our Tiffin did the same thing. Too cold and the furnace kicks in and brings it up to a certain temp.

This past weekend I experienced the same thing as you described. Heat pump never turned on, only the propane heat. This could be an expensive Fall.

We bought a 2000 watt heater from Lowes on sale for $19.95. Does a great job as a fill in for these conditions.

After reading the owners manual again, there is suppose to be the word "DIFF" on the LCD screen of the thermostat when electric heat is selected. Mine never says that, only ROOM. Any ideas?
