Ready to go

I wish this forum was very active. I have a new Surveyor 230 and have not had it out yet . . . waiting on alittle warmer evenings so we can sit out around the campfire.

Is any one else as ready as I am to get the camping season started?

We are ready!>>>> just waiting for Mother Nature! We are looking at maybe trying things out about mid to late March. We are booked for about 10 weekends right now April through October. Looking for more dates that I can get away! This does not include a week in MB, SC.

You guys are so lucky. Up here in the north(Michigan), we usually can't get out until April 15th. Some campgrounds don't open until May 1st. Even then it's pretty cool at night. Just bought a GS272 and am anxious to try it out.

Was tempted to dewinterize the first warm spell we had but mother nature hit us with more cold weather... Already have May 7-10 booked in Ocean City Md, but if it starts warming up I'll hit some of the local campgrounds in Gettysburg.

We just bought an '04 SV263 Surveyor. I filled the propane tanks, flicked the thermostat to on, turned up the temp...but no heat. The burners on the stove will light so propane apparently flowing. Any ideas on why furnace doesn't work? What am I missing?

I'm a bit saddened for all you folks that can't camp year round.

We've already been twice this year and are heading out again in two weeks for a COE park not too far away.

DooWopFan -- start a new thread about your furnace issues so the replies don't get lost in this one and I'll meet you over there.

1st of all, to the forum. Why don't you stop by the "Welcome Mat" and introduce yourself ??

2nd, finally there is another SV 263 owner here. I thought I we had the only 263 in existence.

3rd, concerning your furnace....is the fan running?? If that won't run, then I guess you have checked the fuse?? If the is fan running, but the furnace is just not firing, then that would indicate a burner or propane problem. Since you just filled your tanks, have you bled the lines by lighting the stove 1st?? If you are not plugged into shore power, are your batteries charged??....low battery power could cause the burner not to ignite. Other than those couple of things, I am at a loss, but somebody will chime in here for other ideas.

Instead of hijacking this thread more than I have already done, you might want to post a new thread to "Technical Issues" concerning the furnace issue.

Again, Welcome fellow 263 owner.
