2 zones, zone 1 front, zone 2 rear.
77.9 degrees outside, zone one set to gas heat. Stat showing 74 deg. Set to 68.
I will hear stat click, furnace fan starts up then click furnace fan shuts down. So, basically the furnace fan runs for about 2 seconds. No set frequency to this issue. Might do it two or three times during the day, might not do it for a week or longer.
Nothing earth shattering, more of a nuisance. Not going to drop 180.00 on the upgraded stat. Just thought I'd bring this issue up. Been going on for years.

Anybody having same issue?
Thanks

Any flourescent lights in close proximity? Had a customer having similar issues several years ago. Replaced thermostat but problems continued. Problems stopped when a flourescent light near the t-stat was turned off. The ballast was apparently putting out excessive rf interference. It was also a fleetwood motorhome close to your year model so you may have similar fixtures in the ceiling. Hope this helps.

Even tho you state you ARE selecting Gas heat, is it possible you are possibly selecting HP on 1 zone? The RVP system has a 5 degree separation when on HP. If you have it on HP mode(either zone) it will revert to Furnace IF THE TEMP SELECT IS MORE THAN 5 DEGREES. So, 74 on stat. You select 68, the furnace clicks which it should NOT. But the 68 is out of the 5 degree and will cause furnace operation. BUT your setting is calling for HEAT, NOT COLD. I could see a possible conflict if it was 68 in the RV and you set for 74. So, I have another question. You select GAS Heat. The interior of the RV per the Tstat is 74. You are setting the Furnace at 68 because you want to make sure the RV, NEVER gets below 68 degrees? But the furnace still clicks? I would take a can of compressed air and blow out the wall tstat circuit board. Also, loosen the remote temp thermisters in the ceiling/wall mount screws. Doug

Really can't fix the problem without extensive check out of the 12 volt system and components in the RV. The quickest fix when 00 is to pop the cover off the tstat and pull the glass fuse for 10 seconds. Doug

Just can't figure it out. Im familiar with the 5 degree separation. Some mornings I want to use HP only and have to make sure I don't go over the 5 deg. set point.

I wish I could replace with a smart thermostat but know that such a stat does not exist.

Also have an Onan Energy Command 30 that ocasionally likes to prime the genset when NOT set to Auto but that's another post.

RVP has never found a solution for the 00 problem. They have installed filters and other redesigns, but never found a sure cure. This is one reason Tiffin dropped the ZC in their Motorhomes and went
to each roof unit having its own wall tstat. Doug
