I also would like to know how to light the hot water heater and the furnace? Do they operate when the stove pilot light is activated by the electronic match clicker located within the outside panel? I assume it gas and not electrically powered like the air conditioner.
You should see me try to back it up
I got the extended mirrors that attaches easily by rubber straps. I use it during the trip and remove them after. I find it not as steady as the ones on the car but it helps me see cars behind the trailer and changing lanes.
There is a hot water switch under the front seat(sink side), the red light indicates off it turns green when it is on. The furnace is turned on via the console selection near the microwave oven cabinet select furnace mode and adjust the temp.
To turn on the fridge using propane you need to do that from the outside bottom panel. Turn it on, press and hold this button for 15 secs and at the same press the red button to start the pilot light. Try to hear the fire going in the chamber. Don't forget to turn off the AC and battery switch found in the upper panel.
I'm surprised that you did not learn these via a demo before picking up your trailer.
