    AC auto temp?

    Just wondering if the AC should turn off when it is set to auto temp and it reaches the desired temp? The heater does.

    Is the compressor turning off and just the fan still running? Auto usually refers to the fan setting, not temp. I read somewhere when in auto, the fan will still run when compressor is off to circulate the air. Can't find it just now, but will try the manuals on the GD memory stick when I get home from work.

    If the fan control is set to 'HI' or 'LO', the A/C fan will run continuously. If 'AUTO' is selected, the A/C fan will cycle off and on with the compressor.

    In my previous campers everything turned off when desired temp was reached (heat and A/C). My reflection turns off when desired heat is reached however, when on A/C mode, the fan runs all the time. When it becomes overlly cool in the camper it changes to low however does not shut off.

    I talked to Atwood people. The fan will go to low and run when it reaches set temp. They said it keeps it more comfortable. Don

    That is the way mine has been working - shuts down to a nice quiet low when the desired temp is hit.

    Makes sense. Now that you mention it, my previous campers used to wake me up every time the A/C kicked in and with my Reflection, I get a good night sleep. Also eliminates the hot to cold "yoyo" effect every 20 minutes.

    Thank You for the replies.

    The fan staying on freaked me out the first time we used the AC, but now that I realize it is supposed to run I truly see the benefit. Our home furnace fan always runs as well, it does help with leveling out hot/cold spots. This AC unit is also a very nice and quiet sounding unit compared to our last two travel trailers. We can actually talk and not yell at each other when it's running.

    Now that makes sense, and I went and messed it up by installing a 11K BTU unit in my bedroom on my 303RLS. Have not used it since, but am about to. Main reason for 2nd AC, I can't sleep when hot or warm. Let's hope I made the correct call.

    Re A/C Fan continuing to run when in the AUTO mode.

    My 337RLS is doing the same thing. In my mind, I was sure something was wrong with the wall mounted control. I read and re-read the manual this morning and don't see a thing indicating that AUTO is not automatic. In fact, I think the manual says to put it in AUTO. After experimenting with it over a couple of hours, it appears to me that the AUTO function just automatically switches the fan among High, Med, or Low depending on how far away the Set temperature is from the actual. I don't think it ever turns the fan off automatically.
    Not a problem really. I just wish the manual said so. Every other thermostat I've seen, the AUTO setting turns the fan on or off automatically.
