Second trip in the new to us pop up with hubby... This is the conversation with my dh while camping in the pouring rain two weeks ago as the temp started dropping. Me: Honey can you run outside to turn on the propane? Rick: Why, we're not using the stove are we? Me: No but the heater takes propane. It's going to get down to 40 tonight. I think you forgot to hook up the propane. I turned up the thermostat but it's just blowing cold air and I don't hear the pilot light igniting. Rick: The heater runs on electricity. Me: No, it runs on propane. Rick: I'd bet my life it runs on electricity. (This as he is examining the heater to determine what I did wrong.) Me: Trust me, it runs on propane. The boys and I used it on our trip to Acadia. ( He is now on his hands and knees with a flashlight examining the inner workings of the thermostat.) Me: (10 minutes later) Humor me, try the propane. Rick: let me find the manual (searches cabinets) Me: It's in that cabinet. (I point to the one he needs to look in.) Rick: I know it's here somewhere. (5 minutes later he looks in the cabinet I pointed out). Here it is. (Hands it to me). Find the section on the furnace. I'm going to figure this thing out...(Returns to tinkering with the heater) Me: (3 minutes later). "This furnace runs only on propane. Do not attempt to light the pilot light, it will light automatically". (Read directly from the manual) Rick: Let me see that-that can't be right. (2 minutes later). I'm going outside to turn on the propane. Me: Good idea.
