Georgetown 364ts furnace problems

While camping last night the two furnaces stopped running. Last night got to about 36. We had the furnace set to 71 and it had worked the night before when it was down to about 48 degrees. We are about 2/3 full of propane. I can get the furnace to run by setting the thermostat to hi or lo...but no hot air blows either inside or at the outside exhaust by doing that.

Has anyone experienced this? Is there some shutoff that triggers if outside temp is so many degrees different from what we set the thermostat at? Any other thou to troubleshoot?

We have a 351DS, it's a 2015, We had similar problems but it was with the A/C. I know you can't do this in the middle of the night...but as soon as you can call your dealer. We did, they walked us through some checks and one of them worked. I wish I could tell you what it was, but I can remember.

Running on Hi and Low is just running the fan, not heater. Must be set to heat or Auto/Cool for either function to run. I would double check the thremostat, make sure it didn't get flipped to the fan only function, it is easy to miss with digital thermostats.

Is the heater trying to come on? Do you hear the burner trying to light? Is nothing happening at all? Could be a simple heater sensor that is popped. Those are generally inside the furnace. Check all breakers, fuses, etc.


Call your dealer. asap.

Do you have propane at your stove? Propane regulator might be frozen......similar issue in this thread....

Propane shuts off after 2 minutes below 50 degrees

For our future reference, where where the fuses? in the panel over the bed or in the battery compartment? There seems to be quite a few in-line fuses in the wiring in the battery compartment. I'd like to get a chart of the location of all fuses and what they go to, just for when the time comes like you had last night. As a preventative measure to your furnace issue I would get a couple of those 1500 watt ceramic electric heaters. Whenever we are on shore power much prefer to use the campgrounds electricity than my propane. Wouldn't have heated your whole unit in that cold but may have taken the chill out.

The fuses were over the bed in bedroom. We had it working for about 3 hours. Then nothing. Now we do not get any heat. We used a electric heater last night but it only brought the heat to about 20 degrees above the outside temperature.
