02 Bounder 39R electric heat?

Anyone know if my 02 has electric heat and how to use it if so?

I'm boondocking, running it through everything to make sure stuff works. My front gas furnace works great, rear needs new sail switch. Would like to try electric tonight if I have the option.

On my thermostat I'm only seeing gas heat as an option?

A few obvious things to consider. Does your thermostat give you the option to select electric or gas heat?

Check to see if you have a Cool/Heat switch or mode selection. You need electricity to run electric heat. Therefore you need shore power or a generator.

Some coaches have electric heat strips or get the electric heat from the Air Conditioner.

Chances are your inverter will not power these items.
