I believe it is electric ignition.

Thanks Huck. When we were at PL mid sept and did our options plus deposit Cameron did inform us then that they were only offering smaller frig. I know that I am not the brightest bulb in the string of lights just can't seem to comprehend the electrical current jargon. Huck, if you don't mind,what options did you select (if any) regarding outlets 110/12v for your PL? Also,what is the difference between inverter and converter? Our Sunline that we recently sold was simple...It had circuit breakers that I would just flip on/off.Again, congratulations Huck on your PL order. Did Cameron say what # PL yours will be?
I selected all the options except the upgraded wheels, bathroom sink, and additional 120vac outlets. I added in 1 12vdc outlet.

Inverter converts dc to ac. (connect an inverter to car battery and run your home refrigerator off it)
Converter converts ac to dc. (external acposwer is converted to store on battery)

Thanks for the reply. But.....

The electric ignition on all the appliances in my trailers are 12 volt, including the furnace. That's what led me to asking if PLs don't have a propane system. Just wondering..

Hi, The PL's do have Propane system as an option. And the propane heater will need power from the 12 volt side to run the forced air fan and ignition. On the installed single AGM battery you would deplete the battery overnight, so being plugged into shore power would be a good idea if no solar or larger battery bank is not part of the design/options.

The bulb is lit.....

Thanks for the info. That explains it all, if the propane system is optional. Didn't think about that. I'm just so used to having it in mine I guess.

Congratulations Huck!
I think Cameron must have been a little confused. The furnace will work without external electrical hook-up. The blower and ignition will work off the battery and the furnace fuel is propane. The microwave and 120v outlets will require either shore power or a generator.

BL, I am with you on this one, because normally I kinda understand electrical! But I think the "toilet" running without hookups threw me off!




Congrats Huck! Enjoy!

I believe the fan on the blower pulls 2.7 amps an hour and will quickly deplete batteries. I learned that my first weekend and when the voltage drops low enough the furnace will shut off. Figure with the two 55 amp batteries you have 55 useable amps... so about 20 hours of heat. If boondocking generators are your friend...or a big solar array.

Robin G. I am trying to get educated or at least remain teachable. It sounds silly and even old-school but I have pen and paper in hand and have gone back searching numerous threads and posts regarding electrical info. I really appreciate how generous people are with sharing there knowledge. It is one thing to learn about it and another thing to actually understand it.

I must be prudent with furnace use as I have gotten away with 3 days or more running it off a group 27 battery and only as needed- set the temp very low during the night or turn it right off and only use to heat the trailer up just before bedtime and again in the morning to take the chill off the trailer.

It truly isn't that complex when it comes to our glass trailers. Just know you can't run a small city off 30 amps and you will be ok! That is most rv'ers problem! You will be fine! Don't worry.......

Yup your stated use would fall under "prudent" : )
Of course Cari & I are rebels and don't use heat at all during the evenings,
makes snuggling sort of a-non-optional option ; )
