Furnace Question

1989 32' Sun Clipper P-30, 454. -- When I bought the MH (just recently) it was being used as a camper (stationary). The previous owner, in his sale pitch turn the furnace on to show it worked. At the time, he was connected to a portable bottle of propane. He also showed me how to connect to the onboard propane tank, which I am about to do.

With all that said, is there a pilot light -- or is it electric ignition? I have no documentation on the furnace.

Thanks agai for all the help.

I would give a educated guess and say it is auto light. Mine is a 79 model and it has electric ignition in it. If it don'r want to light, Try getting propane for the motorhome tank. Let us know how it goes, Dan

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
