    Joan, is there a small panel somwhere in the coach that shows black and gray water level status and fresh water status? Normally on that same panel is the switch to turn on your water heater and your water pump etc. I am far from an expert but in the 4 or 5 coaches I have owned or rented this panel has normally been in the kitchen area or part of a larger status panel somewhere else in the coach. Let us know if you find it and how it goes.

    oh thank you for answering i will get back to you, maybe not tonight it is raining and dark here. so keep checking............
    is there a trick to turn the heater on. this is a van conversion , 19 foot, 1999. coachhouse. has tiny box with the termi0stat mounted on the back wall.all it blows is cold air, when i bought it, the salesman plugged in the cord to an electric outlet. and the heater worked, i am assuming the heater only works on elec and not propane=correct???
    i need pictures??? boo hoo!! can you help me with heater?
    i appreciate you helping, i live 2 hours away from town. (yup, in gods country , in the woods, next to mt rainier national park)

    Welcome,
    HHHHHHHHHHHMMMM there is no place in Wa state that is two hours from town unless your walking. LOL

    My guess is if the heater/furnace worked. Do you have the propane turned on? And is the battery fully charged? There is a sail switch on the furnace that allows the furnace to fire up if there is enough air flow= good battery. Plugging in would give full power 12volt to the furnace. Did you leave the furnace run for a while as there is a cycle time before the furnace will fire and at times(when it's real cold) this seems very long.
