First outing in my used "new to me" popup

We finally got to take the popup out (2007 flagstaff 227) and it was awesome! We went from TitusvilleFl to Hiawassee GA and stayed in Enota RV camp. Had a few problems...did not realize I needed to tie to awning down so the 2nd day it went up and over the trailer with the poles sticking up in the air.....lol ( little bent out of shape but nothing torn). The other problem was the furnace....worked just one morning (38 degrees) but the next morning it acted as if it was never hooked to electricity or propane ( that was a 35 degree morning), anyone know what I need to look at to test the problem? I looked at the fuses and they are fine, I have propane but the furnace does not even turn the fan on or make any noise at all as if it is attempting to light. The thermostat is turned on all the way past 90.

That is awesome! Glad you had a great time.

Not sure what to do on the furnace. I am sure others will chime in.

Vin.

When we had our pop-up all we used was a ceramic heater and it was toasty make sure to unzip a corner a little bit to keep condensation down.

Do the stove top burners light?
If so Gas OK.

Do lights work at home? (On Battery power)
If NOT, Check Main fuse on battery. (Usually inside battery box)
I think the igniter and fans work on 12 volts.

Do you have a 120 volt plug at home for trouble shooting?
(And recharging the battery)

If not I would install one.

But , you don't say the one day that it did work , did it work the way it should until you shut it off , or did it fault on you then and not get up to temp the whole time it was on ?
Was it on continually , or just in the morning the day it worked ?

I only used the heater in the morning just to start the day as it warmed up. I have no idea why the next morning it would not just do the same. It's like the heater and the thermostat are not talking to each other.....the fan on the furnace won't even click on

COngrats on your outing! I'm in South Florida... never used my heater so I can't chime in on that. But I think you should check the items mentioned by others. If you are handy with circuits and electrical, override the thermostat and see if it is faulty.

OK , please don't take this wrong , but first let me explain that I do not know which heater you have , and I do know that some folks have those digital thermostats .. and was wondering maybe if the batteries in the thermostat are dead ?
