Unhappy Need Furnace Help ASAP

We have been camping all week and the heater has been working fine, but last night it just stopped heating. It blows cold air, fuses ok, stove works so I have propane.

I followed the advise that I saw other threads. I turned off, waited a few, then back on. Just like others: it came on, heard the clicking, it came on but only cold air. Some have stated that the thermostat could be a problem. Other posts say that the furnace will need to be serviced. Thoughts?

Also, I have the Xtra mileage plan that will repair my camper. Will replacing the thermostat void that plan?

If the blower is coming on, it's not the thermostat or a fuse. You said you hear it clicking. Does it lite and then go out right away, or it never lites?

If you have two propane bottles I would switch to the other one to see if that helps.

Here's a link to the trouble shooting guide from the FRF Library: http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...do=file&id=119

Thank you, Barry. Is the thermostat the thing on the wall where you change the temp and turn the furnace on?

Do you have propane? If you do, maybe a dirty burner? Or, a bad thermocouple? Does it light at all? Or does it light for a minute and then go out?

Sounds like you need to have a professional look at it. I would guess a sail switch or thermocoupler.

Happy Trails,

If it was "clicking", there is nothing wrong with the sail switch or airflow, and modern furnaces don't have thermocouples.
