We turned the propane...

We turned the propane heat on this morning and now the HVAC won't work at all.

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

No. The furnace fan won't even kick on

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

2008 Tiffin Phaeton

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

Yes. We,ve checked the fuses and electricity.

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

A/C won't kick on. The gas heat was on and when we switxhed over to air conditioning EVERYTHING quit.

W​hat is the make and model of your furnace? And make and style of your thermostat? If a digital model, does the display light up or not?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Fridge works. Thermostat is not digital. No power

So is this an analog Dometic or Coleman thermostat?
