2017 22fb sport furnace

So how does one use the furnace in the sport? I only know how to use the electric AC heater option.

I have a 2016 22FB Sport and I don't believe they have changed the setup. The furnace is "gas fired" so you need to open the valves on the propane tanks. The furnace is controlled by the thermostat located on the wall behind the TV. This is also the wall for the closet. Just set the temp like you would a home thermostat and the unit should come on. This assumes the setting is higher than the ambient temp of your coach at the time.

Enjoy your new coach...I love mine!

Merry Christmas to you and your's!

Don't forget to toggle the switch on the wall thermostat to "on."

Your point is "well taken"! On our thermostat....cheap as it may be...the "toggle" to turn it on doesn't always work well. There have been times I thought I was going to break it when I was turning it on. I'd really like to change it out for a different type. I wonder what that would involve?

Best Wishes for the Holidays!

2017 sports 22FB heater furnace

I bought the 2017 sports 22fb and when I tried to use the heater it didn't work. When I removed the external panel and examined it, the board was not clean. Because this trailer is second hand, it is not possible to know if the previous owner removed it. I want to use a heater, so please let me know who the board fits.

sera0924,

Welcome to Airforums.

Do you have the model number of your furnace? That really helps looking up replacement parts. Does it make any sounds like fan starts, relay clicking sounds? Does your stove up normally, this tests the gas supply system.

This is one of the commonly recommended sources of boards for furnaces, water heaters and refrigerators. https://www.dinosaurelectronics.com/

Our furnace will not start until it gets propane so I have to run the stove to draw propane into the system. Then it will start the burner to create heat.

The battery needs to be charged and the battery on/off switch set to “ON”, as the furnace needs 12 volt power to run it.

The little switch to start it is another issue. It is very stiff to move but once it comes off the stop, it moves across the top of the dial quite well. It is a budget control and could probably be upgrades to a better Dometic control.

After testing, the water heater boiler worked. It seems that the thermo switch in the room also works. However, even if it was turned on, the wind did not come out, so when I investigated it, I noticed that there was no board.

sera0924,

Can you post a picture showing the model number? It should be visible with the exterior furnace door open.

The circuit board on the heater can and will go bad. I replaced my 22fb board with a dinosaur electronics board. Also google sail switch and be prepared to clean it.

Is this the board you replaced? There was no old board and I didn't know the shape. I guess this is from the shape of 6 pins.
