Is it normal for the bunk heater to change tempterature all the time? When heat is all the way up, it blows only hot air, but if it is only a notch counterclockwise, it blows hot air for a minute or so, then cooler air, then warmer again and so on. Overall it is OK, I am just wondering if this is how it should work or something is wrong.

Mine does the same thing, from what I could find the temperature knob is more like a thermostat rather than setting a constant temperature coming from the vent.

Googling 'Cascadia bunk temperature knob' got me a pdf that had a chart of knob clicks and the corresponding temperature it tries to keep it at.

It is NOT normal for them to work properly lol.

I’ve been on two 2020s and a 2021 and all of them have worked incorrectly in their own special ways.

Thank you, I found a 2 page PDF, now it makes sense!

Like any heater, the machine itself is either on, blowing hot air, or off. The fan will still blow when the heat part stops to cool it down. That's exactly how your house heater works and the bunk heater should work the same. Like Alex says, your control knob runs a thermostat, just like the one in your home hallway.

I found this neat bunk heater trick: set a can of soup, chili or whatever single-can meal you like, right in front of the heater vent. Turn the heater thermostat to really high, like 90° for five minutes. Boom! - a hot meal!

You won't find that kind of good information in any CDL manual!

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Isn't it easier to use a microwave? :-)
