Make sure it is on auto. We had a similar problem last spring when we tried the heat.

These Dometic thermostats have confused many people. Typically a thermostat is controlling the fan for only the current mode selected, but these are different. Personally I think this is a defect, but maybe there is some argument in larger trailers that the A/C fan could be run while the furnace is on to help circulate air.

Not sure if Escape has changed stats but one of these is right...
