Airstream Safari 22 08 HELP!!

We have been in the AS for about 4 months now. Still learning a lot and not knowing anything the whole time. We have had a major blow out the first week we had it, it ruined all the piping under the restroom/fridge (*this may be why I am having the problem). Then a storm blew out our back window. So it's been a hell of a time getting adjusted to this full time

My problem is, last night got super cold and the furnace did not kick on at all!! We had used it during the day and it worked fine. The stove is still lighting so we have propane. We have been having trouble with our fridge staying on. The check light has been coming on a lot but for some reason it has been working fine today. I just have no clue what to do or check! HELP US OUT FOLKS

*currently in OKC

Did all this happen after the blow out? You may need to get it into a shop.

It sounds to me like your battery voltage is down. Are you plugged into grid power? Is your charger/converter working? Do you have a Use/Store switch and is it properly positioned? Do you have a solar system?

If the refrigerator is erratic, and the furnace too, I think you are running low voltage on the 12 volt side. If you had solar, it might charge enough during the day to operate things, but as soon as the sun goes down, nothing.... Assuming you are not on grid power that is.

If your converter/charger was not operating right, or your use/store switch was set wrong, it could do the same thing, even plugged into grid power.

So, more information is needed.

We've had a major blowout too. The tires were 5 years old and yes it was on same side as yours. Seems that side has more weight on the tire. Proper inflation isn't enough if they get old. I agree with the others about the low voltage. You may need a new battery. Good luck.

Might check pressure regulator on propane system. Working in the warm days and have trouble on cold nights. Propane expands and contracts like all gasses regulator is there to keep the pressure constant.
