Confused with directions for furnace. Shut off switch?

Hi there,

I知 starting up the furnace in my 145 for the first time. It works, but I知 skipping step 8 in the directions because I am not sure where this switch is. Since I am new to RVs, I知 trying to do everything by the book. Plus, it is propane, so I better be careful, of course.

Any idea what this 都hut off switch is and what it might look like? Is this manual more of a general reference for the Jayflight series, and maybe I don稚 have this switch?

Thanks for any input!

Do steps 1 thru 3, and the furnace should light. Steps 4 thru 10, are if the blower stops before the gas ignites. You may have to repeat the first three steps a couple of times before it lights, and is normal for a first time use, or if you haven't used it for a while.

A hint. After making sure the propane tanks are on, take a few minutes to light a burner on the stovetop. That will help to get propane flowing, and the furnace will light easier/quicker. The switch you ask about is on top of the furnace itself. It's not needed for normal operation. It's a reset switch for the unit.
Think you're too old to cry or swear out loud...walk into your hitch in the dark.
