Furnace Question

I have a 2004 24' Wildwood LE Travel Trailer and have never used the furnace. I have no idea if I have to light a pilot light or if it runs off just gas or gas and electric. We are going camping in October and I want to make sure it works before then. Any advice or tips? Thanks!

Make sure gas in on, put thermostat to heat mode and slide to maximum. Furnace should start if all good. Battery needs to be fully charged.

Fonzie is correct, the only thing to add is bleed your gas lines. I always just light a burner on the stove.
