Suburban furnace

I tried to turn on the furnace this morning and the fan did not turn on, no response to the thermostat. 2011 8314 BSS Rockwood Ultra light. The TT was taken to the factory for floor replacement before the 2014 Goshen rally and it appears that the furnace had been removed in order to replace the linoleum. I did not check out the operation of the fiancé until today. Took off panel and the wiring looks intact as much as I can see without taking the furnace completely out. Any suggestions?

Check the on/off switch on the furnace just above the wiring connector.....also check the fuse in the distribution center.

There should be a fuse- not a circuit breaker- a fuse for the furnace in the electric
panel. Check that with a meter as visual check can sometimes fool you.
After that- it's a search with a meter.
Is there 12v power at the furnace control board.
Is the thermostat still connected?
Does the fan run on manual fan on mode?
Just pulling and replacing the fuse -might- reset the furnace control board.
Try that first.

Good luck!

Now I feel stupid. Discovered after removing the furnace that they forgot to plug the furnace back in. Now all is good. Thank you for you prompt responses.

Furnace not heating

I have a 2013 Wildwood travel trailer with a suburban furnace. Open both the propane tanks set the thermostat to furnace air flow was from the top Vance not the bottom but it was still cool. How long does it take to heat up and should the heat come from top or floor vents? Thanks

Hey, Buskirk - Was this a "Freudian slip?"

The top vents are for A/C only from the roof unit. Heat is generated at the floor level and distributed through its own floor level vent openings using coil hose. The fan operates with the heater operation to help circulate the warmed air. It does not have to operate if set on "Auto". The furnace should start with the internal circ fan only to purge the furnace for about 10 seconds and then the burner should start up. You can hear both operations easily with the A/C fan operating.

Thanks VinceU. I thought so. It originally was coming from floor vents then stopped and started from top. Any idea what to check for. Thanks
