Customer Question

The igniter tries to light but the gas won't go on my atwood furnace

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The gas for the furnace won't turn on. there is a clicking sound but the gas won't go on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

2017 Evergreen iGo

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

It has been raining here so I didn't know somehow it might have gotten wet.

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

I am very new to RVing. It is after hours on a weekend and I can't find emergency help. It wouldn't be a problem but it seems that my refridgerator and pilot light to the furnace are on the same electric fuse.
