    Hello Everyone,

    I am new to this site and to PUP. I bought a used 2001 Palomino Pony pop up. It is in my driveway plugged in and I also have a brand new propane tank on it. I am able to light the stove so I am getting propane through the lines. I am unable to get the furnace to work though. Does anyone have any experience with this on a Palomino? I would greatly appreciate any and all ideas.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Jeff

    Hello and welcome from Maine! Congrats on the pup. :)
    I don't have much to offer regarding the furnace. I'm sure the answer is here.

    What happens when you try to turn on the furnace? Does the fan come on with no heat, or is there nothing at all? If there's no fan, check the fuses that run the furnace fan to make sure one isn't blown.

    My Pony is newer, so I'm not sure what procedure you use to turn on your furnace -- do you just slide the thermostat to a warmer setting or do you have a pilot light?

    I spoke to a service shop and they had me take off the thermostat and directly connect the wires to see if it would work. It did, so it looks like I need a new thermostat. It is one that turns on directly when you turn up the heat. No pilot light.

    Sounds like you got your answer! Should be an easy fix. Happy camping.
