    Hi!

    I've never had a pop-up before but just bought a 1996 Starcraft Starlounge. Didn't intend to get one that's so huge but that's what I found! I'm in Minnesota and plan on using it for some grouse hunting this fall. It's in pretty good shape for how old it is but I'm still trying to figure everything out. So far I've tested out the water pump, water heater, and lights and that all works. The sellers said they have never used the furnace before and that is what I'm going to be looking into this weekend. I immediately noticed the reset switch on the internal fuse was broken so I replaced that but there is still no fan coming on and it's not trying to light. I'll test with a multimeter this weekend during my 2nd practice setup and will probably be back with questions!

    Welcome from Wisconsin and congratulations on the new pup! I am assuming you are plugged in to 110... first things I would check: make sure your battert is hooked up properly, safety switch on the galley, thermostat. You can try jumping the thermostat to rule that out.

    Do you have inside pictures? This one sounds like a Cruise Ship.

    Here's some interior pictures from the sellers listing. I won't have quite so many pillows usually...
