guys i have a 2000 jayco pop up camper that has a furnace in it. i am not sure how to operate it. i was told that all you had to do is turn the thermosatate up and it automatically light the pilot. i did this and noting happend. i tested the gas by lighting the range and pretty blue flames burned. i had a battery hooked up too because i was told the fan runs on dc and not ac power. i also looked at the breaker and they were on too. if you could let me know some things to try i would appreciate it. thanks

Usually there is an on/off switch on the bottom of the thermostat. You need to turn that on. Then turn the temperature up. If nothing happens, turn the thermostat back off, then remove the cover from the front of the furnace vent (often brown about 7 or 8 inches square with inside the camper). It pulls off of the bottom then unhinge it at the top. Some have a small plastic "lock" that you need to turn before removing. Behind that vent there is a switch. Push that switch. Turn the thermostat on and then turn the temp up. The fan will run first, then you will hear clicking when the gas is being lit. Then the warm air will come out. Also if you are plugged into AC power your converter will convert the 120 AC power to 12 volt DC power. Good luck.

No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

While I'm very new to RVs and campers, I figured out on my Qwest 8U that I had to open the access panel on the outside of the trailer to select the power source. I've only tried AC and DC but not Propane all by itself. I have an issue with my furnace as well but I'll start a new thread as not to hijack this one.
