I have a 1977 Dodge Sportsman TEC Travelmate camper in fair

This answer was rated:

I have a 1977 Dodge Sportsman TEC Travelmate camper in fair to good condition & I want to spruce it up so My wife will agree to spend some time in it. The AC unit makes noise but no fan kicks on nor does cold air come out. I don't know how to fire up the water heater, gas fridge or to get the shower to go. I generally need some one to have a look at it and tell me what I can or can't do to make it camper worthy...

I found the model # XXXXX

and the serial # XXXXX /p>

but I cant find the manufacturer of the g-drn thing

Ok , the water heater is does it have a pilot you light, and is the unit square or rectangle? The refer number is XXXXX inside the box or on the back...What about the a/c do you hear it humming,,,,,,,is it dometic , duotherm, coleman

there is a unit on the inside (under the fridge) called a Duo-therm it looks like the heater and there is a unit with access from a hinged door on the outside that is the water heater and it is square. Both units have places to light pilot and control knobs. Sorry I am so ignorant of this stuff, if you wanted me to cook or play music now thats where I rock!
Right on no problem,,,,,,,,,,,,,first I want you to bleed the air out of the propane system by lighting the stove,,,,,,,,,,if air comes out, wait until it lights...........The water heater is a Morflow,,,,,,,,,,and the furnace is a Duotherm,,,,,,,,,,,I'll see what I can come up with so you can have something for your records,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but the refer, that model number would be sweet.........
