No Heat in New-to-Me '06 Greyhawk 31SS
Since we bought our motorhome a little over a month ago, I haven't had plans to take it out. Still trying to figure out some of the issues that are new to me, a former travel trailer owner. My son loaded up his wife and their blended family of five teen-aged kids and headed to South Florida right after Christmas. They stayed in the In-Laws house while there, so heat wasn't a consideration until he started home and spent the night in a truck stop in north Alabama. It got cold that night; enough to wake him up around 2:00 a.m. He couldn't get the furnace to produce any heat. With the generator running, he set the thermostat and the fan came on (I think) but no heat. He tried every switch he could find and fiddled around with no effect. He confirmed that propane was available by lighting the stove top (and turned it off). Eventually, he gave up and started the engine to get some heat from up front. He called me after he got home to report on the trip and asked me about it. I had no answer. I never had a problem with the furnace in the trailer. In fact, I rarely used it since we did most of our camping in warmer weather. So, Jayco friends, WHAT IS THE FURNACE START-UP PROCEDURE? I've heard about spiders and their love of propane odor. Any input is appreciated.
