Need More Info

just got the trailer back from repair yesterday and the battery was dead. i guess i need to disconnect it next time. when i boosted it, the furnace came on and an alarm was beeping intermittently. is there something else to shut off when not in use or what is going on? thanks

Probably the CO2 alarm. Charge the battery and see if it doesn't shut off.

ya, probably low battery making it go off. why was the furnace running? is there another shutoff besides turning the thermostat down?

beeping was the smoke detector, i thought it was ac powered but the battery was low because it was cold. the furnace still runs when i connect the battery.

Based on an assumed location, wonder if the shop was running the heater to keep it comfy, used up your battery and never said anything! Is your propane level lower?

Somethimes there's a select switch on the side of the thermostat for cool/furnace/off. Otherwise pull the 15 amp fuse in your DC power panel.
