Hello from Ohio!!!!

Purchased a 2003 Wildwood LE 26BHSS back in January and took it out for the first time this past weekend. Had a blast. We had a Trail Light Bantam 17 before this. So this is a big step up for us. Got everything figured out but the heat. Wasn't too bad but would like to get it figured out before the fall. Glad to be a part of this forum!

What with the heat are you having a problem with?

Well, I set the thermostat to furnace, then set it to say 75 degrees. The blower comes on for a few minutes then shuts off. I never hear the burner kick on. I have plenty of propane but I think my battery is dead. Although I was plugged in to 30 amp electric. While the blower is blowing, it feels like cool air.

It may be that the furnace is not igniting. Try this.

1. Air in the propane line. Light the burners on your stove to get air out of the lines. Then light your water heater. (only if water is in it). This could take several tries if air is in the line. It could start and then go out. Just keep lighting it until it stays on. Do the same with your Refridg. Then try the furnace and see if it stays on.

If you are plugged in then your battery should not be dead and you would be taking power from the cord not the battery. The furnace is probably sensing that the pilot did not light so it is turning itself off.

Hopefully this will take care of it. Let me know how it goes. You may get some other suggestions too. Try those as well if this does not work. This is a great site with lots of help. Again welcome!

Thanks Phillip. I lit the stove thinking the same thing. I let the fridge run all night the first night on propane to make sure it worked, then switched it back to electric. I also had the water heater lit as well but still could not get the heater to stay on. But you are correct about this forum. I love it already and am just proud to be the owner of a travel tariler.

Sorry that did not work. Hopefully someone else may have another tip for you. I doubt it is anything major. Just sounds like for some reason its not getting propane to the furnace.

One of our favorite places to stay is Old Mans Cave at Hocking Hills. We loved that place. Thanks for the Welcome.
