Heater Won't Start

Hi. I have a 1972 Ambassador with a new electronic ignition furnace installed about 2 years ago. I have voltage on both sets of wires and at the thermostat. Resistance changes on the small wires in the thermostat when I switch it on/off.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Terry

Furnace? Isn't that what's outside my air-conditioned trailer?

Gas is flowing to other appliances. The blowers won't start. I've tried with gas on and off.

I'm about to check for obstructions. We had a mouse issue while it was stored last winter.

When you say check grounds, do you mean a common ground to the hot wire?

I'm talking about the ground from the body of the trailer to the furnace, to complete the circuit.

Thanks for the suggestions

And the answer is: A mouse chewed into components of the Thermostat Relay.
