Furnace will not turn on in 377

Out cold weather camping in Arkansas and was using the heat pump before bed around 11:30pm. Rig was perfect at 71, woke up at 5:45am to a rig that was 58. So I shut the electric heat pump off and turned on gas heat, but the blower won't turn on. I checked the fuse and it was fine in the main panel, also confirmed I had propane. Any ideas? Or even which wall in the basement the furnace is located behind?

Interesting that I had the exact same thing happen to us last night! Turns out I forgot to bleed the lines when I refilled my propane tanks. Once I did that, she was toasty again. Iím in Wichita Falls and itís 35 outside


Edit....my blower was coming on but blowing cool air so not exactly the same thing

Hmm...i am still using the tanks that came with the unit. I am think maybe that super secret reset switch on the furnace is my issue. Have fun in Wichita

Thanks. You may be right on the secret reset. We are packing up now and heading to Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Weather there should be a little warmer with lows in the 40s

Good luck with the furnace and have a good trip

Back in October we were camping and it got quite chilly. Tried to turn on the furnace in our 24FBS. Nothing! Got on this forum and people kindly helped us figure out it was the "secret switch" on top of our furnace. Because of where our furnace was (under the couch in a wooden box with metal grating on the front) my husband used a flashlight and his cell phone to video inside the box to try to see where the switch was. Then he took a utility knife and cut a hole in the top of the box to get to the switch. It worked! When we got home he cut a new piece of wood to fit over and fasten on top to give us easy access to it the next time we need it. Hope this helps.

There was a thread a while ago that had the location of the reset. Iím on my phone so itís not as easy to find but Iím sure someone can locate it quickly.
