Georgetown Furnace Problem

Recently purchased a Georgetown 32.9 RV. Tried to turn on the furnace to knock the chill off. I read the manual which states as long as you have power and propane the furnace should turn on at the set temp. The fan turned on but not the furnace? Probably something silly I didn't do??

Recently had a similar problem with my Georgetown. It turned out, after I hired an RV tech that the contacts were not adjusted correctly for spark to ignite the gas. He adjusted it and it has worked perfectly since.

My refer wouldn't work one time and I found out I had not turned on the gas. I had turned off the gas detector thus the gas was off.

RV shop labor ain't cheap. Might wanna check a few things first.

1. Make sure propane valve is opened at the tank. (turn valve ON slowly)
2. Make sure the propane gas detector is turned ON to allow gas to flow.
3. Turn on and light all burners on your stove for a few minutes to guarantee gas flow to that point at least. (bonus is you'll get some heat while testing)
4. Does fridge confirm it is/can running on propane gas.
5. Turn furnace ON to a temp well above what it is presently.

How's things now?

I tried all but the last step. I placed the temp about 10 degrees warmer. It seemed to blow cool air only let it run for about 30 minutes. I'll try a lot warmer.

sounds like it could be the sail switch has gone out.

Idon't know if this applies to yours but mine is controlled by the black Dometic temperature "square" and the first thing you have to do is turn the FAN to AU (automatic) before you set the temperatýre a few degrees higher. Had to call Coach-Net for that little nugget as it was nowhere in any of my manuals! LOL
Good ĺuck!
