if you turn it up in heat mode the heat will come on....if you turn it up in a-c mode the a-c will go off.....is that what you mean?

Please elaborate...AC is Heat and vice versa or your setting the temp higher to get it cooler? Wires not connected correctly is my first guess. Warranty?

Normal operation.

You want the A/C to run when the air is too hot and stop when things are cool enough.

And the heat works the exactly opposite.

Sounds like it is wired backwards. Has it ever worked properly?

Sounds like the heat wire and AC wire are reversed. How does it act on heating?

This is normal operation. If you set the temp to 5 degrees above the ambient temp in the room (reading on the unit) what happens? If it comes on then you are fine.

I don't think that is right. If it's 90 in the RV, you want to move the thermostat to 60 ( or something lower than 90) so that when the inside of the RV cools down to 60, it shuts off. If I understand...you are saying that the AC doesn't run when you turn the thermostat down, and that's not the way it should be.
Sounds like you have some wires crossed. Either that or I am completely confused...not the first time.
