Hello all!! I just bought a 1969 Security camper that came equipped with a Hydro Flame BRC-10 furnace but no instructions to light the pilot or anything about it. I am taking it camping this weekend where it gets pretty cold at night and could use your help. Thank you

Haven't heard of that unit before. You may want to pull it up on line for instructions. Should probably light like any heater though. Do blow out the lines to clear any dirt/webs though....doesn't take much to cause problems.

Jessie, you should go over the furnace and make sure it's working properly before you use it. If you don't know how, you may want to have a local camper shop (or vintage trailer rehabber) look at it. Most propane camper furnaces are similar, even the older ones, with regards to how they work. Just make sure that it is in proper working condition before you use it. Its just my opinion, but I wouldn't use a propane furnace that has not been looked at by someone with experience.
There is a group called the Tin Can Tourists who are all vintage trailer lovers and many of them restore/rehab vintage campers like yours. (Your trailer is a 'stick built' type with wood frame, etc, as opposed to this group which is focused on molded fiberglass trailer). There are some very knowledgeable members over there, about all aspects of older campers. You may want to check out their FB group and ask this question as well.

If you Google Hydro Flame BRC-10 furnace manual you will get a number of hits on operation. BUT, as Pam mentioned, it is an old furnace and you should get it checked out by a qualified furnace technician before even attempting to use it.

BTW: What's a Security Camper?
