Customer Question
My heater is not...

My heater is not working blower comes on runs for a bit then nothing happens,how do I check the ignition and how do I clean the system myself I’ve called around my area and no one can check it for me for a couple of weeks and the night temperatures for the next couple of nights is in the teens so could you please help me out with this please

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?

Thermostat comes on when I turn it up and what coolant level it’s pull behind camper.I did notice this summer that the thermostat wasn’t kicking on and off like it should when I ran the air but the fuse looks fine I’ve checked it

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

2012 Rockwood Mini Lite

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

I’ve really haven’t done anything but make sure venting is clear, I took the cover off the heater under the bench seats and I turned on the thermostat and watched for a flame in little view window but saw nothing

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

Not that I can think of thanks
