Heat pump location

RW 39MB has two units on the roof, thermostat in lr controls the unit at the rear of trailer which is smaller in size than the one in the center of the trailer which is controlled in BR. I would have thought the larger unit was the heat pump. Also are the thermostats linked up or separate.

The two thermostats on my Redwood are totally independent.

Both units on our 39MB are the same, but them again we have Heat Pumps on both.

Just curious, do you ever use both heat pumps at the same time, or only one? If it ever got cold enough to require both, the outside air temp would probably be too cold for the heat pump to work at all.

We've only ran both to warm the unit up quickly without burning Propane. Once it gets it warmed up the Fire Place will generally keep the chill at bay. We try not to do cold weather, but we've had a few Florida winter mornings near freezing and with a heated mattress pad were're unaware of the temp until getting up.

We have the heat pump on the rear unit which is controlled by the living room thermostat. The forward unit is controlled by the bedroom thermostat. Both units look the same and I believe they are both 15k a.c. units creating a total of 30k total. Not sure on that but I think that is what it is

What year do you have? Ours is an 18 which means the bedroom is on a separate loop than the kitchen/living area and the bedroom is where our heat pump is. Ours has 3 ac’s and the middle one controls the furnace. No, the thermostats are not linked on ours either.

Here is the weird part - When it does get too cold, only one will transfer to the furnace if it gets below 40 because only one is linked to the furnace. The other one is independent.

I turned both heat pumps on in my 2014 Redwood, went to bed, and woke up with the furnace running from the Living Room thermostat out the floor vents, and cold air blowing from the bedroom heat pump out the ceiling vents on the bedroom thermostat with no compressor running because it had shut down below 40 degrees. The two were completely fighting each other it seemed.

Heat Pump

Our Heat pump is on the rear AC over the living room and controlled by that thermostat. I believe that both AC units are the same on our unit.
