With our Bounder, the thermostat has an "elect" & a "gas" mode. However, if I set the mode to elect but the temperature I set on the thermostat is greater than 3 degrees above the registered temperature, the elect won't come on. The gas heat will kick in first to heat up the interior until it's within that degree range, then the gas will shut off & the elect will turn on. I don't know if your thermostat control works the same, we are both Fleetwood units, but I thought I'd throw this scenario out.
Also, the elect will not heat if it's too cold outside (below about 38-40 degrees). It just blows cool air, if any. The heat pumps can't extract enough heat out of the air to provide heat inside my coach.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.
