We have a BayRidge...

We have a BayRidge park model trailer Model 38nfl and the furnace is an 8900-111 and I can not get the fan to cut in to ignite the furnace and I can not find the inverter in the unit to change the power from 110 to 12 volt

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Volt yourself? What have you tried so far?

So far I have looked every where for the inverter and can not find it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am sorry but I am not going to go forward with this as I have to go back to work for awhile. Thank you for your patience. Al

Is this a park model? The transformer is in the furnace.

Good day Randall, sorry I could not get back to you earlier to day but I am in he Yukon an on our mining property and had to assist the drillers. I have tried all the breakers and tested the motor for power and I have one ten there but the fan will not turn on. The furnace is a 8900-111 hydro flame. There is no converter that I can find in this park model. It is a BayRidge model NFL. Thanks Al

See the attached manual link, Al for a copy of the Service Manual. See the diagram on page 12 on the right hand side of the page. It shows the transformer. http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/hflamefurn04.pdf
