As far as I know the Berks only come with one tank. Although I have added the extend a stay to connect a portable tank. I only have one furnace and one heat pump two a/c units.

If it's happening to both, I would have to think you have air in your lines. Run all three stove top burners, ensure you get hot water from the faucet and see if the fridge will light off also (if it's not a residential). If all of them work, I'd keep trying to start one furnace at a time. Also listen to the furnace when you turn it on. Soon after the blower turns on you should here a series of fast clicks. This is your igniter trying to light off the gas. If you don't here the clicks then there is a issue. If you're hearing the clicks, then it's not lighting off which could be flow of propane.

Also, are you trying to start them with slides in or out? If out, bring the slides in and see if they light off. If they do, then the lines are getting pinched when the slide goes out. This happened in my 390BH when the kitchen slide was out. Pulled it in and everything worked. I followed the lines, under the fridge and under the sink and saw where they were getting pinched. Was able to spot tie them up and fixed the issue. Hope one of these tips helps!!

I reset the breaker and I can hear the heater running. The back is blowing warm but the front still shuts off after 5 minutes. Does anyone know what can be wrong? Thank you all again.

Does the front get warm during the 5 minutes? Can you hear the igniter clicking? Also as I asked earlier, is your slide in or out? If out, bring it in and see if it works. If it does, your propane line is getting pinched when the slide goes out.

Did you reset or pull both fuses? Each furnace will have a fuse.

Check your furance manual and see how long the manfacture warrenties the furance, many times it's longer then what FR warrenties the coach.

CO dector turned on? Stove work ok? Turn propane knob off and slowly turn back on. Just some things to try

I am sorry can you give me the exact location of the fuse. I checked on the outside front left panel were all the fuses are and could not find. I looked where the electric panel was under the bed and found the circuit breaker for the heater and only found one.

Jason, the front blows cold and turns off. The front slides are in right now. I hear a click when I turn it on then a click when it turns off.

No3putt, the the burners work fine, I turned of the propane know off for a day and turn it on slowly this morning.

One more tip to try is to make sure the fan is set to AUTO and not ON.

While I'm not familiar with the way the Berks are laid out, I'm assuming it would be with the rest of your 12v spade fuses. Something similar to this
