So I'm here on my trip in Marysvale, Utah... it's 35 deg outside right now and my furnace has decided to stop working!

It has worked great up until tonight. Heck it was working right before bedtime. Now at 5 AM, I get up, freezing my (censored) off, and while it'll run through its cycle, it doesn't produce warm air.

I can hear the thing click several times like it's trying to light, but it doesn't. I know there's propane because I switched the fridge over to gas and it's been running fine for the last twenty minutes.

Anybody know what I should look at? Meanwhile, I have my tiny space heater running, and I also (fortunately) put an electric blanket on the bed.

Thanks!

Rob

If the battery voltage is below 10.5 volts the furnace won't work.

Rob,

Sorry..... I thought maybe you were running on battery. The voltage from the converter should be more than enough to run the furnace.

Not sure what brand you have but if it's a Suburban, here's a service manual that might help you figure out what's wrong.
