No Heat

DBINGHAM: Is he running on battery or shore power? Ask him what he hears when he sets the thermostat to call for heat. Does the thermostat make a click ? does he hear a click at the furnace? If he hears a click at the furnace and nothing happens, the fan doesn't start then the first possibility could be the circuit board.
If the fan starts and runs then it could be the gas valve or the sail switch.
Best I can tell you without being there. Frank

Frank, I just talked to him. They are comfortable as the cab heater is working. When he gets here to my place, I will have him check your post and any others so he can maybe find the problem.. They are coming to Central Pa for Christmas after just being in Philly.They are currently on Pa Turnpike and won't stop till they get here unless I could find an open rv dealership....and I had no luck with that. They are up from Savannah. Will get back to forum when he arrives for any help. Thank you!

Good luck until after the new year. I think they are all closed until 1/2/14. I am presently Sussex NJ and the dealers here are closed until the new year. Let me know how he makes out. PM me if you like frankwb2ire@gmail.com

Same thing happened to me on my 2006 Sunseeker. Turned out some of the lines were blocked from insect nests. Try blowing out the lines.
