Just picked up a steal of a deal on a older 1983 Pace Arrow 32ft. class A motor home.. Everything is working in the coach, except the furnace.. I'm about at witt's end with it.. Blower works when you turn the T-stat up, but will not trigger the gas to start flowing.. Heard talk of a sensor that reads the speed of the blower fan.. Or maybe the board is bad.. And yes the LP tank is full.. Help!!! It's cold, the stove is working as ( Temp. Heat ) but I know that is not a good thing to use like that.. Just to add, for my steal of a deal.. I paid $500.00 for it.. It did have a leak in the rear bedroom which did it's damage, but nothing I can not fix.. Came with a full tank of LP and one gas tank full other gas tank is on 1/2.. I'm still in shock for what I gave for it.. The people were moving to a smaller property and had too have this gone ASAP.. Gotta love craigslist..

Good deal, but your problem could be caused by any of several items -- board, gas control, igniter, plugged gas line, etc.

Call a service tech -- you got a bargain and can afford the fix

I agree with Cornerguy. A 27-year-old furnace ought to have a professional take a look at it anyway, just for safety. Campers that age are cheap, but you might have to pay a little more for maintenance. It'll still be cheap.

Congrats on finding a steal of a deal!

It's cheaper to heat with electric heaters than the propane, especially if you're seasonal anywhere. Most parks pay the electric, so you don't pay a cent to stay warm. Much better than blowin' through the gas in your LP tanks. I was able to pick one up at HD for $100 and it looks like a fireplace, but they also have ones that look like woodstoves.
