2015 heat

Does anyone know off the top of your head how the heat system works in a 15 Bounder 35k? I know is has a gas system and a electric system. Not sure how to activate them. Havenít owned it long.

Move thermostat to heat. Make sure your gas is cut on. My cut off was in last bay passenger side where the gas is put into the tank there is a on off switch. Then move thermostat to heat. Chose electric for heat pumps or chose gas for your two heaters. You likely have zone 1 and two for the heaters front and back.. if it is below 35 you wonít get much from electric...

So you have to activate the gas system from both zones? I know my propane tank is in the first bay at the front on the passenger side. I have used the water heater on propane but never the heat. I live outside of Houston so havenít had to use it yet.

Most are controlled by the thermostat. Depending on the thermostat is how it is turned on. I will say that after an RV has been sitting for awhile. You will have to make sure propane is on. Then light your stove to make sure the propane has filled the lines and any air is purged. Also most heaters will try to light 3 times before they will time out. They wont try to relight, some might by themselves others you have to turn off at the thermostat then turn back on that resets it and it will retry 3 times. Electric heat is normally a heat pump/ ac. The other electric heat could be a switch that turns on tank heaters from freezing. Large units/and more expensive unit can have electric floor heat. But that would be unusual for a smaller RV. Hope that helps, let us know what you discover- don't just ask a question and disappear, everyone learns from feedback. Safe Travels

Thanks for the reply Cat. The motorhome is in storage, and I am offshore working. So it will be a few weeks before I get home. But there was a cold front that came through and I have never ran the heat in it. I did get it winterized, fleetwood did make that easu
