temperature readings and floor heat

Thank you everyone for your replies and helpful advise.

The wacky temps aren't all the time, happens in different zones and fixes themselves sometimes without having to do anything. It wasn't a problem this weekend when it was cold (for us in Florida) and the heat kept coming on but the weekends it was warm and no a/c - that was a killer. Turning everything off sometimes works? but other times no. Haven't tried using the AH heat instead of the heat pumps.

Never thought of taking advantage of the heated up kitchen cabinets. May rethink where we keep our bath towels.

So, if the sensor lead is shorted it will look like -35 when scaled for the digital control. Check the sensors and see if the wires were twisted (and shorted) when the sensors were installed. Not sure what the '17 sensors are like or located compared to our antique '13, though. JMHO

On second thought....the thermisters in the coach used for interior zone temperature feedback are probably going to read -35 if they are open instead of shorted as I implied earlier. This possibility makes more sense in diagnosing the problem. All the sensors going open at the same time is highly unlikely. The more likely solution to an intermittent open problem like this is a bad or loose ground to chassis or to the controller. When things go intermittent grounds are always suspect and when multiple devices are doing it the grounds are very suspect because the ground path is often the same wire and connection for all the sensors so a poor ground can cause any/all of the sensors to give erroneous readings.
