The butane furnace on an older travel trailer isn't working. The fan blows but I do not hear the auto start clicking. This belongs to my Wife's nephew who is living in the travel trailer. Don't all of the trailers have an auto igniter? Is it easy to replace?

Start by cleaning the sail switch.

What is the make and model of the furnace?

Trouble shooting vs. troubleshooting.

Exhale half your breath and pause while you squeeze the trigger.

But please recycle it after target practice. Dont be like the kids around here. They lug out trash and shoot it. Only gets worse. Dirt roads around here have been getting trashed like crazy.

Worse case you can get a propane heater that is somewhat safe for indoor use. Amazon had a nice one on sale for 90 bucks. Doesnt ship to cali or canada though. Might end up being the more affordable fix.

Now there's a man that knows the difference between Squeezing the trigger and pulling the trigger of a firearm.......or is it fire arm LOL.
