I am getting air...

I am getting air through the AC vents when running furnace 2016 Montana 5th wheel

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the Freon level?

The AC is coming on with furnace mode

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Montana yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am on the Road and turned on the furnace. I have cool air coming out of the AC ceiling vents and some warm air (low amount) coming from floor vents

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

This can be due to a fault with the control unit/ecu/circuit board at fault commanding on the ac with the heat on.Unfortunately, without seeing this model myself it can be difficult to say for sure if this is the cause or if anything else is at fault.You will need to have this tested further to see if this is the cause or if anything else is causing this fault needing repaired or replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
