LP Appliance Igniter
Question: Neither the water heater, furnace, nor refrigerator in my 1998 Country Coach Max Venture Class C, will work on gas. I don’t know about the stove, since I have never used it. I can’t find any info in coach manuals. I assume it isn’t a propane issue since the water heater won’t even try to light.
The furnace blows only cold air & you can hear the fridge try to catch. I’m assuming it’s an electrical switch that creates the lighting spark?? Is there a fuse I need to check? Something electric?
Any help will be appreciated. Even if I have to have it repaired, it’s the not having a clue as to the cause that I dislike.
Answer: Start your diagnosis by making sure you have propane and that the shutoff valve is open at the tank.
Your RV might have a an LP gas detector that needs to be reset before gas will flow to the appliances. My RV has a solenoid that shuts off the LP if the gas detector senses a leak and will not allow LP to flow until I manually reset the LP gas detector.
Another problem I’ve encountered is loss of power to the the solenoid due to a blown fuse.
If the problem is more complex than what is described above, take your RV to a qualified service center. Propane can be dangerous so do not take any chances.
