After running the heat pump and completely turning the unit 1 and unit 2 off and then turning off the switch to the whole unit. We then unpluged the unit from 50 amp and off we went several weeks of this and sometimes the air was used both front and back. Once the power is plugged in then on with the air switch on and then unit 1 and maybe 2.
Once ready to move reversed.

So we were doing stuff and I smelt an odor in front and then an orange odor too. In just a bit we noticed there was no air blowing out of the front unit at all and yet it was still running but louder than normal.

Quickly I turned off unit 1 in front. And we checked fused both switch and the 75 amp colored one nothing blown...

Other than waiting till we do get home end of month and taking it in with our warranty policy in hand has anyone had a similar thing happen.

NO we have not messed with the heat pump part to see if it was affected. We just turned it off case of fire or killing the unit completely.

Peg, you maybe smelling the newness of your coach heatpump, if that was what you were using. Oils on heating element or your furnace will burn off an run clean in future use. Don't know what 75amp fuse your talking about but your air's will be off 20amp ckt brakers in your 110v ckt braker gray box. Your 12v ckt fuseing maybe next to the gray box in your living space in your bedroom. Mine are above a cloths closet in bedroom. "007"

Peg,

On the "Mode" switch for the front A/C select the "Fan Only" and ON to see if it will turn on. It should do so in about 15 seconds. 007 is right, if you had the heat pump accidentally selected you would get the "dust burn off" from the coils for a few seconds after it started up. Same goes for the furnace. I'm not sure but seem to remember that the compressor can run for a few seconds before the fan will kick in (when set to auto). The circuit box on mine is at the right hand side of the bed frame (single slide).
