Furnace problem

Last winter, my son used our 06 Greyhawk and reported that he couldn't get the furnace to work - no blow, no heat- nothing. Since then, I've tried fooling with the thermostat, but still no blow. Is there a circuit breaker actually ON the furnace? I've checked all the fuses and circuit breakers in the center, but no help.

There may be a switch/breaker on the outside under the access panel.

since the furnace is powered by 12V (vice 120V), you might have a blown fuse (vice tripped breaker). Check your electrical system.
- is the battery charged and connected? unplug shore power and see if lights and / or furnace work.
- open your inverter front panel and check for blown fuses.

Has your furnace been serviced? Mud dobber nests or spider webs can stop a furnace from doing anything....no spark,,,no ignition.

the fan should start before the furnace burner starts, therefore bugs wouldn't be an issue with hearing the fan run.

I think it is a blown fuse or tripped inverter breaker.

Remove the four screws on the outside panel of the furnace you will find a reset switch in it

Hey, Moonraker1. I took off the outside panel and guess what I found? A switch. An "ON & OFF" switch that was in the OFF position. I flipped the switch and went inside and moved the thermostat to a higher heat position and I heard it click ON. This was all while we were in Florida last week. I didn't leave it on long enough to run the furnace, but I'm sure that cured the furnace problem. Thanks for your suggestion.

Sometimes you wonder if the factory or dealerships do this crap on purpose...
