Customer Question
I have a 2005...

I have a 2005 travel supreme 5th wheel with a furnace that will not heat

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

I just bought it friday and set it up yesterday the blower comes on but there is no heat the ac works fine

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 RV?

Travel Supreme River Canyon 5th wheel

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

Haven't tried anything - I used a space heater last night & I'm working the next 14 days straight. Not a lot of time to fix anything.

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

You can mention that both propane tanks are full and the gas stove is working fine

T​his can be caused from a number of things, but the most common when the motor and fan come on is a failed control board. If you have the make and model of the furnace I can supply a copy of the Service Manual and direct you in some testing to track this down. It can also be from the incoming DC voltage being too low or the LP pressure can be too low at the tank regulator and need adjustment. That should be checked at least once a year. Get back to me with this information and I can give you more on this. All follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.
