Don’t Be Left in the Cold:
Posted By Good Sam On January 24, 2011 @ 10:54 am In RV Tips | No Comments
One of the basic comforts of home that can be appreciated when RVing during this time of year is heat! All we usually have to do is dial up the thermostat, and sit back to enjoy the warmth. Aside from the more elaborate perimeter heating systems in luxury Motorhomes, most of us have a forced–air furnace, which uses propane to fuel the burner and 12–volt DC power for the controls and the blower.
Furnaces, although usually reliable, can be troublesome at times. If you don’t have the Good Sam Extended Service Plan  to help cover the cost of repairs needed fix your furnace when it decides to act unruly, it’s helpful to have basic knowledge of how your furnace works and how to troubleshoot malfunctions.

If you don’t have any of these components to help troubleshoot these malfunctions, our good friends at Camping World  are offering a special where you can purchase all the necessary tools at a great discount…
Another important troubleshooting step is to educate yourself on what is and is not covered when a major RV component breaks down. Unfortunately, a number of Motorhome manufacturers have gone out of business this past year, and your RV’s warranty could be void without notice. Don’t be left in the cold! Find out if your Motorhome manufacturer is on the list .
