Hi all, today I was working through the appliances in our Bigfoot
17 (1984). I was pretending we were in the boondocks and only had the battery
I am bummed out that the furnace
, hydro flame hf80 with piezo manual lighter did not work despite following the manual explicitly for procedure. Simply put, theblower fan is much slower on 12v DC and just runs and runs without throwing heat. The pilot stays lit no prob.
I.knew the furnace
worked on 120/AC so I tried that and indeed it works great!! Blower fan runs much faster.
The manual shows only 12v DC power input. I am stumped why converted 120ac to DC power via the inverter runs the furnace
just fine but direct off the battery
BTW the battery
is brand new fully charged AGM group 31, lots of juice ....any suggestions would be very appreciated to start solving this problem. A working furnace in the bush is a must !!
