It will most likely be in the same bank of relays as your electronic master breaker panel. On an FC or an SP over the dinette.

Are you sure it isn't the booster fan for the bathroom? It is next to the suburban and is controlled by the T-stat in the bathroom. I added a relay to prevent it from running if the Suburban isn't running.

Before I tear into any wiring, I would...
1) Be sure there isn't a thermostat your missing or operator error...it happens a bunch!
2) Check the thermostat itself

Can you post a picture of where the air is coming from? I think you have the furnace confused with another blower- perhaps the chassis heat. Furnaces in the '85 models do not blow unless the thermostat is calling for heat. Try moving the switch on the thermostat from heat to cool and see if it shuts off. Also look for a little tab at the bottom of the thermostat and move it to the "off" position. See what happens!

I don't think the old PT is set up that way? Mine isn't, but it's older.

I repaired several LP heaters in my old PT and learned a bit.
the heater gets 12V+, 12V ground and the Thermostat sends a 12V+ signal as call for heat. Harness plugs in on one side.

My thermostat failed in that it would click at the right temp... but never send the 12V+ signal. This offered initial head-scratching.

I'd guess you might have constant 12V+ out of the thermostat. This is easy to check if you remove the thermostat cover and with a volt meter or test light. Test the stud which outputs "call for heat". It might be always on.

Is it possible the furnace has a failed control board causing the fan to run or possibly an open limit control ?
