Furnace issue discovery

Have a 1999 Fleetwood discovery

Living in the Deep South it hasn't been below 76 for six months
Went into my coach this evening and the rear furnace was running putting out heat. Nothing was turned on at the control panel that would call for heat

Anybody experience a situation like this.?

Came into my 1998 Pace Arrow and both air conditioners and both furnaces are running. The air conditioners and furnaces are controlled by a board made by intellitec. Sometimes this board goes crazy. I have had it happen twice in ten years. The board is expensive, so I just turn it off and back on.

intellitec board

I talked to the guy at inteletec and he said the thermostats start to go bad which causes this condition.
unfortunately these control panels are not made anymore. He can do a repair but I have to send it to OHIO and will take 4 to 6 weeks to get it done

i asked about buying a new panel but he said whole coach would have to be converted to 50 amp.

its pushing 95 here everyday with 1000% humidity so I cant be without AC for six days let alone six weeks.

I am sure I am not the only unit that ever went bad. maybe there is someone out there that has another solution.

thanks in advance

If your furnace has the on off switch, You could turn off the switch at the furnace. You can NOT pull the 12 fuse for the furnace, because the fuse for the furnace is the same as the water heater.
