Unhappy Furnace

Hi.. I am new here.. We bought a 2014 Hurricane Thor several months back and we have it set up as a home away from home at a park. My son is in between homes and staying there and we can only get the furnace to work off of propane. We just filled it 2 weeks ago and it is out already. We are trying to figure out if it can also work off of electricity, and if so, how to switch from gas to electricity.. Please help! Thanks, Liz

There is no switch, it's a propane furnace that has only a 12v blower Space heater might help, but keeping the pipes from freezing means running the propane.

As nosticks said - the only heat source for the furnace is propane.

On the 2014 Hurricane (at least my 32A) - there is no fresh water tank/pump/valves in the basement - it is all in the RV... so running space heaters is an option. (Unlike the Challenger which relies on the furnace heating the wet bay in basement to prevent freezing.)

If you will be below freezing - be aware of the tank drain pipes... Nothing heats that area... Cracking a black water drain pipe wouldn't be any fun. (Would really have to be below 32 for a bit... Not sure you are getting that cold in SC...)

These rigs are not insulated like your home... and as the temperature outside drops, the propane usage goes up significantly. I remember an unexpected snowy Christmas in Arkansas a few years ago - could almost watch the propane gauge go down until I added a space heater.
Not yet retired...

Do a search for extend a stay. You can hook up a large propane tank to your motorhome.
