1999 Alpine Furnace

I almost feel stupid for asking this question, however I'm in a bind. I tried turning on the furnace using the thermostat controller. However, there is no icon for furnace; just one for the fan and A/C. I already read the manual and still can't figure it out. Thank in advance for your help! My family and I are in Mammoth Lakes skiing and the furnace is needed.

Not sure if I have the same thermostat controller but on my coach to run the furnace I need to be in zone 1 on the controller.

Press the "Fan" and "Mode" buttons together to toggle between Zone 1 and Zone 2. When you are in Zone 1 press the "Mode" button a few times and "Furnace" should pop up.

Is your thermostat a 4-button or a 5-button? The '99's came with a 4-button but several of us have had to replace as they eventually wear out. The process to get to zone one is different depending on which thermostat you have.
