I have a 2004 Pace Arrow. This weekend, when checking on the motor home, I found the fans on both AC running, even though the switch was off. I opened the breakers. Later, I went out and found that the heaters had started. Again the switches were off. I cut the propane, but the heater fans are still cycling periodically. Does anyone know what is happening?

Sounds like your thermostat is calling for heat or cool (or maybe both), regardless of the setting. Could be a short maybe?

Since this is a generic furnace/ac control problem and not in any way a unique to a Pace Arrow, I'm adding a shortcut in the Motorhome Problems area to get input from other RV owners.

Contact http://intellitec.com/ and tell them your problem. I had a similar issue with a the thermostat on my '04 Pace Arrow. Mine was an intermittent problem, took it back to the dealer three times and they didn't fix it. Kept replacing other parts. When I spoke with Intellitec they didn't even question my problem, said I needed a new Thermostat. Which is the panel with the switches and temperature adjustments. I think they call it an ECM. Because my coach was out of warranty I had to pay for it, about $132 if memory serves. But I didn't care, it cured the problem.

r2dillon;

I had a similar problem on my Chieftain. The furnace blower would come on all by it self with the thermostat off. After a lot of testing I found a bad ballast sending a RF back down the light switch wire that was near the thermostat wire. I tested it out by disconnecting the suspected fluorescent light. My problem ended when the light was disconnected. I switched the light with one toward the front. No more problems. When I was researching my problem I found situations where TVs would go on & off all by them selves when a bad fluorescent light was on.

Good luck and please let us know how you fix your problem.

Don
