Furnace and other issues

just purchased 92 pace arrow. The furnace doesn't do anything when I turn thermostat on and up. This unit has not been used for some time. With some cleaning and adjustment I was able to get the water heater going and the stove/oven if I match light it. I dont see any type of shut off switch. Any suggestions where to start? I do hear thermostat click when I raise the temp.

Do you know what kind of thermostat you have? The older style had a bi metal spring with a set of contacts that closed when you asked for heat. The contacts could become corroded and not allow the voltage to start the furnace.
So, can you identify the kind of furnace and thermostat you have? Better suggestions will flow that way.

If they are suburban furnaces go on line to the Suburban site for a troubleshooting guide. Don't know about other brands. They are really pretty simple.

The furnac is a hydro flame. I'm getting the furnace to fire intermittently now. The thermostat appears to be working properly, as it always kicks the fan on.

Hydroflame is a great furnace when PROPERLY maintained. I had two of them in my prior 93 Pace Arrow Diesel. RV furnaces have no filters so they tend to suck anything and everything thru them.

I ended up installing burner that was rusted out preventing it from properly igniting. Also cleaned the squirrel cage blower, replace the electrode and sail switch. Fired up first time, every time. Do it right the first time.

Check out this site for parts, prices. https://pdxrvwholesale.com/
They have tune up kits as well. Do the same for your hot water heater.
