OK, only the water heater runs on electric. I"m assuming you have a Suburban water heater.

Go outside, find the square door with the grill in it that allows access. It could be black or white, or painted the color of the trailer. Open the door.

The switch for electric is in the lower left corner. See here:

Make sure the 110VAC breaker is on in your power center inside the rig. I can't tell you which one, but it probably looks something like this;

Read those instructions on your LP regulator in your pic in Post #34. It should tell you what to do.

Here's a video:

Looks like you've got gas.

Turn off the furnace at the thermostat, then turn it back on. Should work.

Ok, well Iím an idiot I guess. Yes that switch is on. As a matter of fact it switches now. Before the guy in front of me was helping me and he tried to switch it off and it was stuck. I just tried it and now itís switching on and off. This is my first time out in this thing.

We've talked about the furnace and the water heater in this thread. I'm assuming your "yea It works now" statement is saying your furnace now works, right?



EDIT: OK, I typed too slowly. I see now that your furnace now works. You should probably apologize to it for saying "the damn furnace is not working."

Are you talking about the switch on the water heater? It turns on the 110VAC heating element so you don't need to use propane.
