The heat pumps are labeled electric heat.

Thanks everyone. This week, our first with the Redwood, has made me feel as if I'm over my head a couple of times. You folks have pulled me back to shallow water and I am very grateful. I would be completely lost without your kind help. THANK YOU AGAIN.

So far since we have been in our RW everytime I cursed redwood and mumbled about something that shouldn't be and is totally wrong it was my fault and or ignorance and being to smart to read the owners manual. Now before I blame or think something is wrong read the owners manual or check here for reference.

I would "IF" I had gotten an owners Manual. The dealer was supposed to have one sent direct to me ... Still waiting

I think Redwoods owners manual is a small part of the manuals you need. In my owners kit were manuals from all of the aftermarket vendors in covered pages and some loose. But a lot of information. The tv, refrig, maxxfans, thermostats, etc etc etc
Mine had nothing from lippert on the slides, jacks, etc. but a day fooling around on the lippert site and I have all of it now.

If you purchased your Redwood new the dealer should have provided you with a mountain of documents. Not only the owners manual but manuals for all the electronic, the stove, oven, refer, furnace, AC/Heatpump, etc. Mine is enough to fill two 2' binders!!

If your dealer doesn't provide, call Redwood and tell them the dealer didn't equip you with the literature!!!

The other forum also has a manuals folder and the owner's manual and most of the 3rd party manuals have been uploaded for reference. This might save hours of trolling the internet.

Rear AC with Heat Pump, also controls furnace



forward AC with heat pump (does not say electric heat, just heat)

If you were to have 2 heat pumps they installed the wrong thermostat or you didn't get 2 heat pumps, I'd be checking to see for sure.

Those are the same as ours! I'm grateful we had cool enough weather to get this figured out. Believe me, in 19 years on the prairie in KS, we have never needed heat until this week.

Also note - your ceiling ducts are all connected together, so if only one AC/heat pump is running you still get air from all of them.

It is common for me to wake up in the morning - kick both on to heat, and the front heat pump starts blowing heat out the ceiling vents, and the rear will default to furnace because the temperature delta is too high, and heat comes out the floor vents until the temperature gets caught up, then it also switches over to heat pump. My wife LOVES that

Another thing you may find - I'll have one AC on during the day, and it gets cold enough that it will shut off. Wife kicks on the heat at night on the other thermostat, and somewhere in the middle of the night we have the rear HEAT on and front AC on at the same time, both running to beat out the other

Similar to Brad, when the nite temps are in the 40's-50's and days are in the 70's & 80's I'll put one unit on heat with the thermostat set around 68 and the other unit on AC set to 75...best of both worlds!!!

This way neither works against the other and the coach stays in that sweet-spot range for us both.

I never thought about it like that love the idea have to try it out. Here the nights get cold and days hot. I always wake up chilly. Trying it out ASAP

Great idea - have to check this out for those cool desert evenings next winter.

Unlike Brad's, my bedroom a/c didn't come with a heat pump! (Brad, I always wanted to be you!). Guess they dropped it in the new rigs or another option??

The heat pumps have always been optional, some order one, others both... we decided on one and have had no problems, the single one heats the coach well.

I wish the thermostats were more accurate, ACs get too cold before shutting down, too warm before starting & same with heat, the furnace will run you out before it shuts off, the heat pump is fairly comfortable, still slow to react.

I am experimenting with the "dual settings" right now. I have the bedroom set to 67 degrees on "Heat" and the living room set to 74 degrees on "Cool". (I have dual everything) So far, so good. The air has kicked on a couple of times today, it's in the low 80s. We'll see how TONIGHT goes!
