RE: Furnace not coming on when it should

We don't have anything but the remote. I need to buy a room thermometer to get numbers before we go any further.

RE: Furnace not coming on when it should

Sorry. Been too busy with other problems to get back before now. Yes, I have a Carriere A/C unit. I have a Surburban furnace on the ground floor. Yes, I have a remote which manages A/C, heating, Fan, and something else I can't remember. The green light indicates something has been set by the remote. The furnace does work, but for example, we went out this evening, leaving the remote temp set at 66F. By the time we got back in the late evening, I'd say the inside temp was in the 50F range (it gets cold at night in AZ !) So I cranked up the remote to 75F. Nothing happened. I directed the remote to the ceiling A/C area and turned the remote/furnace OFF. I then pointed it again and clicked the button on the remote to turn the furnace on. It came on, and started to heat the trailer. As it was working, I set the temp on the remote to 66F and I'd say it did go off at about that temp after 10 mins or so. Notice to turn the actual REMOTE off, you have too point it to the floor, and click the OFF button. Now we have noticed that if we leave it at 61F for the night, our usual practice, the furnace does come on and go off a couple of times. It seems that the furnace will only turn on, when it is a long way below what you have set it to turn on. Or when I turn the upper temp way above what it is now. Does this help in your diagnosis as to why it's not coming on when the temperature drops below what we have set it ? Thanks for suggestions

Furnace not coming on when it should

The furnace in my Heartland North Country 30 FKS, is not coming on when the temperature drops below what I have set on the remote. For example, about 3 hours ago, I set the remote to 68 degrees F. Now, inside the travel trailer, it must be about 55 degrees F. The furnace has not come on. The green light in the roof is glowing. What is the likely problem ? Thanks

RE: Tank guage lies

Done. Hmm ! $150 each. I'd need two of these. Unless..... I used just one for Black tank, and kept the grey valve always open, using block. When it came time to flush Black, remove block (easy), push button, black tank flushes. Open up hot water in kitchen, run it for a while to clean out outside sewer hose and Y junction. Push button. Black tank closes. Turn off kitchen tap. Replace block. Easy. Need to think about it for a while. Thanks. Never knew the remote ones existed ! I might use the manual ones plus block for a while to see how it works out.

RE: Tank guage lies

Thanks for al the replies. I did mention in my first post that it was the waste water, i.e. grey water tank, i.e. NOT the BLACK tank, sensors that were not working, but it looks like people maybe read my posting too quickly !! This GREY water tank (K) is attached only to the kitchen sink, which of course, gets lots of waste water supply. Whatever, I think we will fill this K grey water tank with hot water as much as possible, and then foaming RV tank cleaners like Tank Blaster or Commando. Also fill tank with water and CLR or Lime Away. Up to now, I have flushed the K GREY tank when it was full, about twice a week, and after I have flushed the BLACK tank so as to clean the outside sewer pipe. The sewer lines from the K tank and the BLACK tank are joined under the trailer, with a flush gate attached to each tank. We also have a separate sewer line from another GREY water tank (B) that has ONLY the bathroom sink and shower attached to it. I leave the "flush gate" open all the time on that. However, outside, close to the trailer, I have placed a 6" high block of wood underneath the sewer hose, thereby creating a U type drain. This works well and keeps the RV Park sewer lines smells at bay. I could do the same with the K GREY tank, only keeping the "flush gate" to the BLACK tank closed. When I wanted to flush the BLACK tank, (which is not that often, two weeks even) I would close the "flush gate" to the K tank, fill up the K grey tank, remove the block under the sewer line, flush the BLACK tank, flush the K tank, close BLACK tank gate, replace block. What a procedure !! But I don't think it's worth messing about with new sensors. And since I am elderly, getting down underneath the trailer to open and close gates is a pain. I'd rather not rely on a schedule, my DW (and myself) sometimes uses the kitchen sink a lot, sometimes not that frequently ! I could be draining the K tank unnecessarily.

RE: Tank guage lies

Go to Walley's or on line and get one of those flexible wands with the rotating end on the want. Stick it down in the tank and rinse it out. Has worked for years for me. It's the grey water tank, NOT the black tank. Can't get to former. Black tank is easy, just look down the hole.

Tank guage lies

When I empty the waste water tank, the guage indicates it is still full. Obviously the contacts inside the tank have got gummed up ? Our trailer never moves, it is on a fixed site. What can I do ? Thanks
