Novice questions #3 and #4
In a previous post, I asked two questions about our "new to us" 1206KB (1996). We're hoping that we're close to understanding how everything works, and making the necessary repairs and getting the maintenance done so it can be ready to go for next weekend. We have the pump working, the water system sanitized and everything is working there. The hot water heater is tested and works (after a scary flare up from the clogged burner tube!). Everything works on 120 just fine. The fridge we just got figured out on propane and tested. Brought the fridge down from 80 to 65 in about an hour, so I figure that is working as well. The manual is somewhat helpful, but it has a lot to be desired when it comes to giving ALL the info!
Now, for the couple questions: Question #3 from this novice: Are the receptacles (like you'd plug your toaster into in the house) supposed to work while running 12 v? The lights work fine on 12 v. so I know I'm getting power to the converter. Just don't know if there is an issue that needs to be worked out with those receptacles or if they were never meant to be operational while on 12 v power. Would be awfully nice to be able to have a little clock and/or a night light at the very least. If they ARE supposed to work, are these running off the 15 amp fuse in the converter? What else should I check?
Question #4: The furnace. I get the blower to come on, but no heat. Thermostat is turned up all the way to 90 (and it's not that warm out), the power switch on the thermostat is in the ON position and the switch under the vent cover inside the camper is in the ON position as well. I am assuming that the switch under that cover is an electronic switch to open the gas valve from what it looks like. I have cleaned the 4 electrical contacts going to the gas valve. Not sure what else to try at this point. Like I said, the blower is working, just no heat, so it sounds like the burner is not igniting. There is a little tiny black switch/button on the right side of the furnace under the vent cover that says 5 amp next to it. I don't know if this is a reset button of sorts or a circuit breaker or what. It pushes in a little but it doesn't stay in, although I didn't try pushing it in while the system was powered up. This was all checked while running on 12 v power from the fully charged, new battery. Can someone enlighten me on what to check with the furnace?
