Just a little update from Yosemite. We are having an awesome time. The weather has been beautiful. It did rain most of the night and is clearing this morning. We had a great dinner at the Ahwahnee last night.

Only issue is the furnace died last night. I checked that I'm getting 12 volts to the furnace and check the thermostat wires as well. Circuit board is probably blown and the furnace is only less then 2 years old! Good thing I have Mr. Heater with us!

The horse is back in the barn! The Yosemite trip was a success. Only issue was my 1.5 year old furnace crapped out. I got 9.5 mpg on flat highway driving and 7 mpg with combination of flat highway and mountain driving...a lot better then I was expecting.

Silly question, but did you check the 5amp circuit breaker in the outside compartment of the furnace?

Never a silly question. I don't want to admit how many times in my career a careful fuse/breaker check was the root fix. I had a partially open fuse act like a resistor one time. It made a line printer output fade out left to right. A fast check of the fuse with a multimeter swing the needle, so I assumed it was good. Once the 'silly question' was asked, I rechecked and found it was defective and measuring 10 ohms or so. That let the voltage drop when print hammers were firing.

Learned from that one--really check for very low resistance on a fuse--especially with an electronic meter.

Nice!

What were the air valves behind the hood door for?

Hi Vycan,

I agree with rmkrum, not a silly question at all. I did check fuses and made sure I have 12v at the furnace. There is no fuse at the furnace that I could see...I think the old furnace did have one though.
