New owner furnace questions (was vengeance?)

I'm new and not so smart I guess. First time trying my furnace and I can't get hit air I did it as the instructions stated and everything but the hit air part works. Fan is blowing I can hear the cLicks but it blows cold air lp tanks are full and in. Its there a truck I'm missing

Sounds as if your ducts are blocked or not connected. You may need to take a look at the furnace compartment.

Have you purged your lines since connecting the re-filled tanks? I have found that I need to light my stove first. It seems that any air in the gas line prevents the furnace from lighting and after 3 attempts it locks out.

I'd light at least one burner to prove gas flow is good first (that way the furnace only has to purge the line from the TEE on the main line). Then try again. Note on my furnace I have to power down (shut it off) then back on to re-set so it will try to light again.

Good luck - let us know if you fix it especially if it is something else so we can share the knowledge.

Thanks I will try that. The hot water heater came on and heated up but I didn't try the stove. I have never disconnected the tanks. They have been turNed off since I bought the trailer. I have only used it during the summer so I didn't need to heat anything. Lol more its time and I don't know how to

Could be some Cobb webs or mud daubers up in ur burner office. The clicking is your direct spark ignition which lights off the gas. It tries 3 attempts at like 30 seconds each and if no flame was proved it defaults your blower on. That's why you get the cold air. Turn off power to it and try again.

Ok this may be a dumb question but in the outside at the vent label hot where the hot water heater lights up is that the same spot the furnace lights

What type of RV do you have?

Generally, no, the Furnace exhaust vent is not the same as your hot water vent.

You need to locate where your furnace ignation is - since your hot water works fine, purging the LP lines will most likely do no good (although check, can you light a burner on your stove? if so, then your lines are purged)

I agree with others, I am betting something is clogging the igniter in your furnace (and it could well be critters!...they LOVE LP fumes!)

Your blower is working so your vents are not blocked, you have hot water and can light your stove, so your LP lines are working. Last culprit in the chain is something malfuncting with lighting the burner in your furnace.

(Oh, and check your furnace vent as well to make sure you do not have any "squatters" in there as well
