Hi there

We are really new to rving. We have a Damon Frontier Flyer which we assume has gas heating. It is freezing and we are leaving tomorrow for a few days trip. Does anyone know how the heating would work?

thanks so much

linzatx...
Welcome to iRV2!! You will find all sorts of friendly & knowledgeable RV owners here willing to help any way they can. You may also visit the Damon Forum and ask for Karma while you are there.

You don't say what year your Damon is-but I don't think that will matter. Any coach we have ever owned had at least one thermostat on the wall. On the bottom of those thermostat is a switch that you move to turn it on or off. Once you have it on you will then move the little slider on the right side (or on the top)up to your desired temperature. Oh- one other thing - you better make sure you have propane in your propane tank and that the propane is turned on.

Good Luck on your trip tomorrow and have a great Christmas.

PS... You may want to mention what year it is- so others may share any concerns or problems they have had with theirs.

linzatx, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. Usually, the heating system and most of the time that will be gas furnace is inter-connected with the air conditioner. It could be a remote control or fixed to the wall t'stat. You will need to set it to the correct mode for heating and set the desired temperature. Make sure the LP gas is turned on and that you have plenty of it. Turn on the heat. If it does not start producing heat in a couple of minutes or shuts off, turn the furnace off and back on at the thermo tat. You may have to do this several times if all of the lines need purging. Once you get fuel to the furnace it should ignite and be fine from this point. If you are not going to be connected to shore power or have the generator running, be mindful that the furnace will draw a far amount of power from the battery bank. If your bank is smaller it could deplete it over night so recharge the batteries first thing in the morning. You can also run the furnace while traveling if need be; the gas must be on at the main tank.
If you have an LP leak detector that has an auto shut off, in the event of a leak, it must be turned on to get LP gas to flow. Good luck and keep us posted.
