Furnace on generator question

Iím dry camping right now. Itís cold. Solar panel has done a good job keeping up. Pushed the system too far yesterday, so Iím on the Honda generator now. On 120v AC the furnace uses the Rooftop air conditioner fan. Big, noisy and sucks electric, (thus gas.) The little heater fan works just fine.
How to I tell the big noisy rooftop fan to step aside and let the little fan blow the furnace?

Are you saying both the heat pump and propane furnace operate simultaneously?

I think I remember on pickup I was told to turn the AC fan on auto. That would shut it off. I think Rease made a video that covers this.


I might be thinking about the Maxx fan

I just read my owners manual. Page 30 at bottom. "If you do not want the fan to operate when in furnace mode, switch fan to auto"
