1st trip disapointing.

Well pur first b.c trip in our new Geo Pro 19FD was a 1 1/2 hour drive.
Before left we started propane fridge, bled gad out through stove and grill to make sure no air in line. Turned fridge on and pushed gas button up. 3 hours fridge still hot. Got to camp hooked up electric switched gas off for fridge and was cold within a hour.
Propane prtion of tankless wouldnt lite, and hooking up to cable outside of trsiler delivered a horrid scratchy pic and stTic sound. Hooked cable direct from post to tv through door and was perfect pic and sound.. brand new tailer 2018.

Fridge takes a number of hours to cool down. Most of us start it the day before. Dealer should have told you this.

Nice fish, lake, steaks........

Sorry you got off to a bad start. Ditto on starting the fridge a day before. I leave mine on electric if the next trip is within a few weeks. I run all of the stuff for 2 or 3 days prior to reduce the disappointment level. I fill the tank and run the water, then drain and refill the morning I leave or the night before.

Did you hear the fridge light or see indicators that it was on?

What altitude were you at? Does the fridge and WH light at "home"?

I'm having a bit of difficulty reading what you typed but if hooking up and running everything at home is an option then I suggest working out all the bugs there. Test run all propane devices.

Did you turn off the TV antenna amplifier ( small button on coax connector plate). If button in on position it will corrupt anything on the cable.

Did the stove work? If the propane lines were empty and you turned the propane on quickly, the free flow safety valve could have shut of the propane. To correct this, shut off propane, disconnect tank, wait a few minutes, then reconnect tank. Turn propane very slowly until you just hear some propane flow. Stop and wait for a minute until lines are pressurized. Turn on the propane completely.

I do the same on my TT. there is still some air in the line to the refrigerator that you have to bleed out. It takes about 2-3 restarts on mine before I hear the flame 🔥 on the refrigerator light. Note that I did’t say the igniter which is trying to lite the propane.

If you have a doubt, take it apart until you can see the flame. I do this at the beginning of the year to get the powered rust out of the burner tube as a preventative measure.

I could smell the gas going to the water heater but it wouldnt light. Kept to turn off and wait then turn back on but after 3 cycles several times still not firing. Can hear the water heater clicking to try to light.

Follow the coax from the TV to the wall outlet. On the face plate where the coax goes into the wall there should be a small button that will illuminate an LED. Dealer should have covered this during PDI


Small black button in photo below.

Pro Angler, gotta ask.
What dealer did you buy from because they really gave you a poor PDI/walkthrough.
All your issues should've been explained by them.

Yes there is a buttin on the 12v outlet plate (thought it was a power on off for outlet.. There are 2 other coax cable outkets behind tv but the cable that was hooked to the tv came from inside the wall. What are the 2 coax outkets for? Maybe i shoukd have pushed that button..for the love of god..lmao

That's the button. If the LED was on the amp was powered and that was probably your problem.

On mine the button that lights up is for the signal booster when using antenna. Turn off when using cable or satellite TV. The other two coaxial connections are for cable or satellite. You have to unscrew cable from TV and install on either or to get the cable TV to work
