Electric Heat Question for Nexus 36 Ghost Owners out there...or anyone else who would

This is our first Winter with this new RV and "thought" we had electric heat when we are plugged into landline electric. We know we have propane heat but we are not using it. Problem is the blower is only blowing out cold air with the electric heat on. Is the problem because we are only plugged into a 110 line? Or, do we not have "electric heat?"
We don't want to keep bugging Nexus with our questions. We are fairly new to RVing hence these fairly simple questions to a seasoned RVer.

By electric heat I am guessing you may have AC units with heat pumps, this is listed as an option on their website so you would have had to order or buy a coach with this option.

Check your thermostat and see if it gives you an option to use the AC's as heat pumps.

If you have the dealer sheet it should specify that the AC's have the option. It is listed on their website as

Customization Options

15,000 A/C w/ Heat Pump IPO 13,500 in LR

Heat pumps are great until the temperature drops to about 40 degrees and they loose their ability to work. The coils on the roof ice over and you get no heat inside the coach.

We thought we had a heat pump related to the AC units because it says "heat" on the wall regulators. The paperwork we received does not note "heat pump" so I guess we don't. The AC is 2-13,500 BTU low profile ducted roof ACs and also noted 40,000 BTU furnace as standard features. We did not pay extra for a heat pump. Thank you for the responses. We are grateful. It is so confusing when you are new at this. It's been in the teens here in PA so I guess nothing is going to work well anyway! By the way, we have a On Demand Hot Water Heater with no instructions how to winterize. Our plumbing has been winterized as instructed but nothing on the hot water system. We are worried about that because we weren't thinking this would need to be winterized since we don't have a hot water tank system. Any insight would be appreciated.
