  • This didn't help me at all. I have an onboard tank which you didn't review at all, and I just got this thing. My intro was so quick and there is no information in all the books provided with this RV that has a ton of warranty issues. I am so disillusioned with this whole process, to am ready to sell this boat anchor and take the loss.😢

  • One note: our furnace will shut itseld down if it doesn't receive gas after three attempts to ignite. I found the best process is to purge the lines of air by turning on the stove and getting all three burners going for a minute before shutting them down and THEN turn on the water heater (next in line after the stove) and THEN the furnace (last thing on our trailers gas supply line).
