Good Evening Ms. Wilson.....

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

I have a 2004 Cardinal 32' 5th Wheel. It is equip with a Duo-therm Heating System and I am having problems out of it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

I have checked the fuses, There is no coolant in the heating system that I know of. The A/C still works fine

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '04 RV?

Yes

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

Gene, I have taken the cover switch off the unit control box on the wall. I have replaced ALL the fuses in the control panel where the main circuit breakers are. Cleaned and checked the filters including the main filter above the area of the living room.

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

No, not at this time

What is the actual model of the furnace and the style of your thermostat? What happens when you turn it up and ask for heat? Motor and fan come on or not?
