HW heater/furnace questions...

HI! We just bought a new to us 2005 Rockwood Freedom PUP. We are total newbies to the PUP world and the camper came with no instructions at all. I have found general manuals on setting up the camper but nothing specific on appliances etc.
We were able to start the fridge via propane but can't get the stove or HW heater to light, not to mention I have no idea how the furnace works, whether it's LP or electric or both. If LP....Where do I light it?
I would very greatly appreciate any help that you can give.

Thanks in advance!

We're so excited!!

Find the brand and model number of the appliances and you can go to each brand's website and download the manuals.

Since the fridge will work on propane you hopefully have the gas on.

Did you manually try to light the stove burners? If not, try that.

The furnace runs on propane, but also requires 12 volt power, and it has a built in ignition. When you set the thermostat to heat you should hear a clicking sound as it tries to light if you listen closely.

I'd work on getting the stove to lit and then move on to the water heater and furnace.
